I love that dark dark red, with the metallic look to it.
Never seen it on a RL Celica though. See it all the time on Mustangs.

I like Kandy Apple Red & Kandy Brandywine, which is what I think that Celica that was posted is.

That Celica up at the top is one of the UGLIEST ricer jobs I've seen... but sadly, it's been done with probably $10k of mods.

now... there's a difference between candy apple red, and Kandy paint colors...

candy apple red is a standard color name... several different companies have a color called that, or something very similar... all of them being slightly different shades of red...

Kandy, however, is a specific kind of paint effect that is proprietary to the paint company House of Kolor (good sh!t BTW!!! some of the best you can buy!) It has a different lustre to it than regular auto paint does... more of an iridescence i think. It comes in all kinds of different colors... and you can mix and match the colors in different layers, because the paint is semi-transparent. The sweetest paint job that i've ever seen was on a 1934 ford 3 window coupe. It was first painted black... just a standard black. Then they put a silver metallic coat over it. Next came the Kandy coats... the first one was a medium violet color (all of the paint was House of Kolor, and the colors were all custom). Then they did a bright blue kandy coat over it. Then they finished it off with a silver iridescent clear coat, and three regular clear coats. The effect it gave was stunning to say the least... at some angles, the car looked dark purple, other angles it was bright blue, and in the sun, the silver metallic showed through all of it. All told, it had 17 GALLONS of paint on it. Most cars can be done with 1 or 2 total. It was a $25,000 paint job...

The possibilities are endless.. if you want something really awesome and completely custom, look into House of Kolor.

personally, i think that the candy apple red TRD widebody celica is one of the cleanest looking cars i've seen on this site! There are no gaudy decals, the spoiler is tasteful and matches the front splitter, it's not a double deck park bench or anything of the like. The color is AWESOME. It has one of the best molding jobs i've ever seen on fender flares. The only thing that I might change, would be to go an inch smaller on the rims, so you can actually see the tires and i'd put TYC red tail-lights on it thumbsup
