    Survivor With Heart Take It On Long Trips Over My Caddy! — Like the amenities the handling the reliability. Very fast little car amazingly reliable! At work sometimes I park it doing security the lumbar and side adjustments are comfy to sleep in! Love to pull past high end cars they have to try to pass me all they see is the tail end of my 27 year old 305.00 dollar performance by Toyota! If you can find a one owner celica grab it!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Bought car 261,000 miles on for 305.00 e-bay sold as parts or project car! Started dressing it up but am too busy driving it not a lot of cars 1986 have all accesories workin and yes it is fast and fun!

    Cons: Live in florida car originally came from New York so some rust but not enough to complain about.

    Loved It, If I Could I Would Buy It Back Rigth This Second. — I loved everything about this car except for the fact that it was FWD. It was quick, good gear ratio and light. It was purchased 8 years before it was given to me by my dad for $1500 and I sold it last year for $1500. It had a 3S-GE and that thing loved to rev.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: If you like FWD. I'd highly recommend getting one. Do a 3S-GTE swap and you''ll be killin it.

    Cons: 90% of them are rotted out.

    Good Car, But Need To Get A Well Looked After Example. — Car looked great but turned out to have quite a few mechanical problems! Clutch needed doing and it had an idle control issue which were very expensive to fix. Fun little cars to drive though, this was my second one. Bought it cause the first one was so reliable.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable, well built, goes well when been looked after.

    Cons: Expensive repairs/replacement parts, getting high in k's, long in the tooth now.

    1986 Toyota Celica Sx — Performance- This little 103KW machine was definatley Quick.It had plenty of get up and go. Acclerated good off the mark and only climbed with ease. With 320,000km on it, it was just as perky as when i bought it. Build Qulaity- Well needed to replace the clutch and Struts, but generally held up good. Bit of trouble with the air flow meter and fuel filter. Appearance- Had a couple of bumps wen i bought it. Added the wing too. Fun Factor- What can i say. It was my second car and i had it for 6 years. I miss driving it!

    Pros: Power and perkiness, Front end design

    Cons: Bloody huge doors

    My Old Celica... Not Quite The Mona Lisa, But I Still Miss Her =( — It was cheap on initial cost and repair. Smelled pretty icky until I ripped out the majority of the interior in the rear (due to the less than optimum condition it was in safety, smell, and otherwise) and some in the front (again due to broken and no longer functioning parts), and because of this... well, this substandard (in today's industry) car became a little more fun to drive (sure, it was lacking many amenities, and I had to enter it when i locked myself out by a screwdriver in the trunk) actually outrunning some modified civics! HAHAHAHAHA!!! the tranny was pretty much damn near bulletproof, and the motor, though not in the best condition aesthetically, was running strong for it's age (by the time I got it, it was already 18 years old ^^)! Not surprising though, because it is a TOYOTA!!! =D

    Pros: cheap, reliable, great gas mileage, great beater car

    Cons: ugly due to previous owner's, not to be racist, "Mexi-tuning"
