A very dependable and rather sporty car
I purchased a 1992 Celica GT in 2001 and have put 40000 miles on it since. Its ran great for me since I have owned it. Whether on interstate or back country roads it handle and runs fantastic and has never caused my any problems. The only things I have had to do is ragular maintanence to the vehicle. Before I owned the Celica I drove a 1991 Dodge Daytona. You boys talk about a quick car, this old thing had a 3.0 v6 and would run with the best of them. Even though it was heavy, the 3.0 would pull it around quite well.
The engine did start to burn a little oil, but it still runs pretty good, though my brother has been a bit rough on it.
I have a few questions for the boys with early 90's celica like mine. First off, is it really useless to add any sort of lower cost mods to up the power and capable speed? What mods are worth adding on? I really haven't done much to the car besides a few small cosmetic extras. I put 15 inch chrome rims (wanted to stick w/stock so I wouldn't lose any horsepower, tinted windows, and put a kicking stereo in it. Looks are not everything to me though. I want a car that will run descently quick. My first car was a 1966 Ford Thunderbird with a 390 V8. It was a beast and had all sorts of power. I still own the Thunderbird, its going in the shop sometime this winter for a total body restoration, although not much is needed. It only has 52000 miles on it and 3 rust bubbles on the rear quarter panels. I just want to ask for peoples suggestions on hyping up the celica? Also I'd like suggestions on beefing up the 390 V8. You can send your emails to Gallaher06@aol.com. Thanks a lot for your comments. I hope to get some good ideas.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
