Instead of the Celica?

If there was no Celica, what would you have gotten or considered getting?

Since I bought a '03 GTS brand spanking new and had a few things added (security system, Diamond coat interior/exterior/undercarriage etc, $1600 system) it was over $40 000 Canadian with taxes (hurtin' 14% and then loss on trade in..big story.)

I would have wanted to get a 1980's Porsche 911SC, 1998 Porsche Boxster, '94 Supra TT, 350Z (would have taken a bit more cash,) or I may have stuck with the Type-R had it been black. I didn't go with any of the above because of insurance & repair costs.

What about you?

i almost got an FD, it was the sweetest car...


jet black, upgraded Turbo's with BOV, MT, just a beautiful car...

it was on its second engine, had 30,000 miles on it, and people that know those old rotaries know that the seals go after about 60-80,000 miles...

it was 17k ... my dad wouldnt let me cry didnt like the idea of the engine having to be replaced once already...

I was actually deciding between the WRX and the CELICA...

I just don't like the new Body style for the rex...
And, You can make those things BEASTLY fast!...
However, I don't need TONS of speed right now! I would rather have a car that is funner than sh!t to drive and pics up multiple chicks!

True, it is hard squeezing them in the car...but you get the point!

wtf are you talking about??

the WRX is 227 Turbocharged...faster than a GTS...

like 0-60 in 5 something...

the STi is 300 which is even faster, but you can make a WRX that fast...

and the new design is awesome!

i wanted to get an 02 cause i had a lot of things i wanted to get...i mean look at this thing... tasty

^^billy, they're only supposed to be about a half-second faster in the 1/4 (a little more), so i was wrong about saying my car was faster--thats what i get for bein to lazy to look up states (actually 14.4 for the wrx and 15.2 for the gts)

anyway, i've beaten one before (only raced one) so thats why i said that. guess its just a difference between drivers. thumbsup

yep...i think stock 02's with bug lights didn't look well, but once you got the JDM headlights that were darker and some other stuff...it looks awesome...

ditto. i'm not into 4-door cars.

personally i still think there is no such thing as a 4-door sports car.

the lancer evo and wrx sti come close--but i still classify them as typical rally cars (which is their original purpose)

rx-8--depends on if you actually call the two rear 'doors' doors.
