1974 Toyota Celica ST 1.6


Nothing went wrong with the car,

General Comments:

It was a 1974 Celica. It had the same appearance as a 1970 'cuda. I installed cragger mags and a front spoiler; very sharp looking car, Always received compliments on what a far out Celica I had.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1974 Toyota Celica GT 18RC


Everywhere I went with the car, people stopped, looked and always asked questions.


Nothing has really gone wrong with the car in the 30 years I owned it, I always was on top of maintenance and if a problem started, it was fixed before it got terminal.

Could of used some more power in the motor.

General Comments:

The car went through whatever I put it through, from age 17 to 47. It also was wrecked a few times, but like Frankenstein it was recreated and alive and well.

It was an incredible 1st car and I am going to keep it until I croak.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well, I return 7 years later to add to my past comment here I posted. I am still in total agreement with my past post, and even though I treated the car harsh at times, she never let me down.

I drove it across country, from Bradenton FL. to SF, CA in 3 days once, made love in it, camped out in it, and many other things during a total of 37 years of ownership.

I finally made a decision to sell the car a few years ago for $2,900. The new owner was very excited and said it was his life's dream to own. I made the trade from the Celica GT to a 1989 Toyota MR2, which is in fantastic condition. Purchased for $700 and worth over $2,900. Just try and pry this MR2 from my cold dead hands.

I owned a 1977 new. Everywhere I went, this car always got compliments on its Mustang body styling. Very hot looking car, that I felt was ruined in the 80s. The beginning of the potato shape in many vehicles. I went to a Datsun 280ZX 2 plus 2 next; an expensive car new, but a great choice at that time. Very advanced factory electronics for its day.
