1986 Toyota Celica GTS 2.0 DOHC from North America
Fantastic fun ride that is inexpensive
I bought the car for $1,200 and the car is in amazing condition.
The interior is beautiful. The sunroof has a little trouble going back in place. And the passenger side window motor is out. Also the low setting on the A/C doesn't work. Other than that the car is magnificent.
The clutch cylinder has a slight leak and the power-steering pump has a slight leak.
The clutch has never been replaced! It still works great too!
This is the best car I have ever owned.
It's quick and handles very well. I have a few friends with Civics and they won't give me the time-of-day. I'm just waiting for a chance to race them.
I just bought new tires and I can still spin the wheels in this rocket!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

A friend who won't give you the time of day because you don't have a car like theirs is probably not really a friend...

I think he is referring to racing, not the actual friendship.

Just picked up an 86 Celica ST with a full GTS conversion interior/exterior and a 1st gen 88-89 Alltrac 3S-GTE motor! After driving an Acura Integra for two years, I'd have to say this Toyota is very well rounded... suspension is pretty much garbage compared to what I'm used too... (my Integra was track prepped with about 4 grand in the suspension) but the celica is just sitting pateintly awaiting it's turn. Great car non the less and I'm 100% satisfied.

Hey whats up guys... I bought an 86 GT-S about a year ago now for 300 bucks haha... me and my dad fully restored the car and sunk about 3000 bucks into it. The car runs like a dream even though it has 305k on it, it's a Toyota though so the Japanese know what they're doing. But anyways it's a very nice car and don't have a problem smokin the little civics and crap going around, so pretty nice car.
