I looked at the Eclipse... it didn't come in the color i wanted I then looked at several Honda - they were over priced and the 2001 civic that we already had, was falling apart only after 3 months - so that was out of the question
i didn't care for anything domestic - the interiors looked outdated
my price range at the time was $18k through $24k
It's not just your imagination... Your day really does go by twice as fast while on EverythingCelica.com
I was like isaac. I checked and test drove the Eclipse besides the Celica. I was also thinking the S2000, but it was out of my price range, and maybe VW GTI, but passed on that idea. At that time the RSX and I believe the WRX weren't out. I compare the Celica to the RSX and if I had to choose between the two at that time I would've chosen the Acura.
Wuz just lookin' for a car with Great gas mileage! Went to buy an 02 Civic (which was bought out from under me) and the manager tells me that he has a 00 Celi GTS that he'll sell me at a discount because the other folks got the civic.
Boy, am I glad they Lucked out!!!
For some folks, "Gaseous Cranial Explosions" are just a way of life!!
i had a Civic Si and traded it in for my celi but now im looking to get something like luxury/sporty like the 2004 Acura TL a-spec or wut ever with the full body kit and six speed transmission and navigation 276hp but i might wait and see wut else pops up i love the celi tho and always will
489 whp 1998 RSP supra that I helped build (with a do-Luck type 1 body kit!!! )...I even had a loan lined up, but my ins said to kiss their ass!! so I got a celi cause I love the way they look, and drive, and wanted one since they came out...
My previous car was a '99 Corolla, so I knew I wanted another Toyota. When I laid eyes on an '00 Celica that was the car for me. But I had to hang onto my '99 another year for cost effectiveness & then I bought my '01 Celica.
I test drove an Integra Type R and an Oldmobile Alero 3800, both were faster with more horse but neither had the feel and look of the Celica.

RX-7: Didn't have enough money at the time for the maintenace and rebuild. 240SX: Couldn't find a 5spd. Integra: They get jacked left and right, so the insurance would've been ridiculous. RSX: A lil too much out of my price range.
