What made youu get the CELICA
What made you want to get a celica?

for me was the commercials when i first the commercials it made me die from laughter espcially the one with the old man screaming "SLOW DOWN YOU CRAZY DRIVER" and the CELICA was just parked. and the one with the cop writing up a speeding ticket to a celica also PARKED



so i just fell in love wit the celica and it's looks then my cuzin got a gt and i loved it (still for the looks) then 5 months after my cuzin got it my parents suprised me on my bday and got me a GTS with the action package since then i am my parents slave whatever they ask me i just do it b/c i know the sacrifices they made my mom didn't get the car she wanted (she was gonna get a lexus gs but my dad found my baby and he got a goood deal so he just bought my baby instead of buyin my mom her car) and my dad also sacrificed b/c that time i just got my lisence and insurance was a bitch b/c i was 16 and it was a GTS

I LOVE MY CELI

haha probably because the n00b buyers and they see "action package," it sounds like "oh shit" i must see how it looks like. It sounds catchy btw. But if Toyota were to call it TRD kit, i bet you not as many people would not be interested or be like "wtf is a TRD kit?!??! confused haha anyways the celica is sexy! and i have always loved this car since the 7th gens came out!

I drove by the Toyo dealer & fell head over heals. I test drove everything I could find & nothing in the GT's price range even compared to how good it looked, how nice it rode & how well it handled. Plus it was good on gas, durable cause its a toyo & I'd had never even seen one on the road. I picked her up, the carbon blue was glossy like glass & it was the first car I ever really wanted.

I purchased my GT because of its looks, no cars can compare to it back in 2000.

And I purchased my GTS because of the same thing, and I love the way my old Celica handles so it was given that I should purchase a GTS 6 speed, lol.

For me it was its sex appeal!!

the car is gorgeous!! sleek agressive, all around great design!!!! Then once i test drove it I fell in love!

If it wasn't for the celica I would probably be riding around in a red camaro SS, or an eclipse spyder those were my other choices..

I love my Celica!!! thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup

Always liked the way the 7th's looked, just never got one at 1st.

Then one day I went to dinner with family and friends and someone in our party had a red one parked outside. It was that day that I decided I wanted a new car and a Celi. Got my car within that month.

I wanted something that had a backseat, but still felt like a small car. I was nearly set on the Mazdaspeed Protege, but the Celica just felt much more like a sports coupe. The huge difference in ride height was what did it.

I actually wasn't a fan of the Celi at all until I test drove it.

When i first saw the commercials way back in the day i thought they were awesome...i never thought i would own one. Looking around for cars all summer and had not come up with something my dad and i could agree on, finally the last day of summer we go back to the toyota dealership and they had just gotten a black celica...I knew it was mine when i saw it

was lined up and had a loan ready for a 1998 RSP supra...insurance said no way...so I sat and thought about what car would look awesome, but last me forever, and the only thing that came to mind with a rep like that was the celica...so I went and test drove an 01 white GT, and then walked into the showroom and saw my (now mine) 2003 solar yellow GT sitting there...It was instantaneous...I just couldn't help myself...the look, and the color almost made me wet myself...

back in 2000...
Yup it was the looks for me.. before the Celi I could care less about cars.. almost got a red civic ..soo close.. I got lucky and we stopped by the toyo dealership then bam I got the one and only red celi ... the looks.. the headlamps wooo tasty

although returned it since they wouldn't fix the paint damage right away.. and ha ha got away with getting all the money back grin it was nice being the first on the area to have such a car though.. the turns of heads were nice =)..
so then later on got the 2001.. what it comes down to is it's toyo .. looks.. handling and ecelica happywink

in all honesty, the only reason I got it was because some girl totalled my old one and I only had a week to purchase a new car. If you know anything about NW Pa I don't have to mention that there's not much variety. The Celica was the only aggressive-looking car around. After test driving it on some nice bends I was sold even though I didn't feel much power and it was an auto (I knew I would be modding it like crazy - wink). I purchased it right off the lot - sadly there were no GTS's and only one GT in the color I wanted, plus it was fully loaded so I payed for it on the spot - thumbsup

well i dont have a celica... but i would like to buy one... i wasn't really a great fan of the rear lights and the really cramped back seats, but my parents made me choose between toyota and honda.. definitely want to go toyota because of the reliability and because my sister's honda is having major problems.. another reason is that honda meets would suck ass!


another honda kill story is always welcome

I bought mine purely on looks. It gets soooo many compliments it is unbelievable. And after driving it for a year now, i love how it handles and i love the way the shift gates are. After driving my friends civic, it makes my car seem that much more badass.

I actually saw the commercial of the old guy yelling at the car. I didn't know that was a Celica?!?

My Lexus ES300 was on its last leg (had been for awhile). It was too expensive to maintain. My dad was browsing through Consumer Reports. He marked the Civic, the Accord, the Jetta, and the Celica because they were all CR best buys. I looked at the Celica and thought, looks hot and great price thumbsup. Without even seeing it in person, I wanted it. Test drove the Celica and the Corolla-S. My parents found out the GT was a sports car and opted out, but I still wanted it. I was almost on my knees for it. They kept pushing for the Corolla. After enough, I finally got the Celica. Almost two months later, i'm still in love with it. Every time I mod something, even so little, it feels like a new car all over again. Couldn't convince them to get manual, but auto is alright. Get a conversion in a year or so. laughsilly

I wanted... no I NEEDED that car! now... many years later in 2004 I finally have one and its almost two months now that I've had it and I couldnt be happier!! grin

I destroyed the engine in my old 200,000 mile Corolla due to an oil light that never came on and well no oil change or tune up in 30,000+ miles. I got sick of driving that piece of crap so I went Celica. I wanted a new compact sports car. It was either a Celica, Eclipse, Integra, or VW (that's all I could have afforded then). I didn't want the Integra because that is inferior to the Celica in almost every way, the newer Eclipses are piles of crapola, and the VW I'm still debating if I made the right choice. I would have definitely gotten either the RSX or WRX if they were out back then. I should have just sprung the cash and went with the S2000 to begin with, but I would hate myself now knowing about the STI and EVO for that price range.

I first starting seeing a couple around town in 2000 when i was a freshman in highschool and 14, i fell in love with it, but my grandparents always told me to forget it because it was way to expensive, then 3 months before my 16th birthday, my grandpa walked in my room while i was with my friends, and was like "well lets go see if you like this 01 red celica at toyota", so we went and they got it :-)

I wanted a celica since the first day I saw one in my High School parking lot. There was just something I liked about the body style of the 7th gen. (headlights, hoodscoop, interior, etc) I also liked the fact they were not that popular at the time.

My 91 Mr2 had some engine problem so I got me a 04 Celica GT, I wasnt going for a nea one but my brother told me to get a new one. If I knew I were going for a new one, I would be driving an STI then my Celica, But it too late now.

Its looks did something for me, and the interior consile and shifter looked very sporty!

My stupid reason is this. I loved how the headlights look. They are awesome. LOL Too bad I didn't look a bit harder before I bought, I would have bought a GTS. Oh well!

I was lookin at options of a new car, and saw a celi pass by... did my research, found out it was a damn fast n/a car with great handling, racey interior, dead sexy exterior, and not very common over here thumbsup

it was my dad that made me get the celica...i hated the car before i got it. I was looking for an STI or something along those lines and my dad said it was too much power. He also hated the idea of me getting manual tranny. My dad loved the celica...alkways wanted one for himself so he made me look at them when i went to pick out a car. TO my luck the only two they had used were both stick...and since my dad loved the celi so much he said it would be the only car i could get stick. So i bought the celi...and fell in love with it. I never knew how much power the celi had and had absolutely no idea about its handling. The thing i love the most about it is the ease of modification...all the work i have had on the car i have done myself...and i have had no major problems. I have had horrible luck with my celi...needed a new enging after only 31,000 miles and had 2 accidents...hit and runs...a few slashed tires...my wipers were bent...so on and so on. But i still love the celi...no matter how much trouble it gives me.

first day of college, 3rd semester. I rode to school in my rommies 98 eclipse gst 'cause my 95 gs-t was broke down in my backyard for 2 months. when we got there we had to walk about a mile through the parking lot to get to class; on the way i passed about 10 celica's and they all caught my attention. she ended up hooking up w/ a guy that had an 2002 gts. his car was sweet, thumbsup but auto thumbsdown

i then decided i wanted one. i got a great raise in january 2004 (40% raise) so i decided to buy an 02 gts. looked all over couldn't find a stick private or dealer, so i ended up getting an 04 gt. i had been looking for black, the lady at the dealership thought it was black but it was carbon blue. i saw it, fell in love, and have had it since!

I Got mine because of the horsepower out of an 4 cylinder and it was in my price range. also when i was in high school i had this friend that would always scream out "look a celica" all excited i didnt know what he was talking about cause i didnt pay that much attention to him, he was always braging about how much money he had and what not and how he was gonna get one. so i was looking for a car and i wanted it something i could fix up and saw that the celica had 180 hp and i liked the sleek design so i bought one , and now i have the only gts in my hick town while that dude is driving a hyunday accent that he paid twice as much as i did for my celi.

i've wanted a GSR but my price range wouldn't allow me. Anyway, Celica was my 2nd choice. It was at first a dilema between a GT or GTS. Bottom line is it was my friend's cousin with his old turbocharge eclipse inspired me. Ever since he let me drive his car, I loved the boost and the feeling of your body being pushed back to the sear...So I ended up with a GT and save up the money for a turbo setup... grin

The first car i drove in was a 1988 celica st 5 speed. My dad put a bodykit, exhaust, and springs, when i was starting to get into cars with my friends, but i didnt really care. Got to high school and the old celica was my ride from sophmore yeard to mid senior year. Then i drove home one afternoon and saw a new celica in my drive way. It was my grad present. Awsome looks, unique headlights, racy interior, good enough power, and most of the girls in school, wanted me to give them a ride home grin.

I wanted one when the 7th gen. 2000 started selling in late 1999, but I had a 3 year old '97 Honda Civic that I bought new in '97. So I had to wait. I was finished paying off the Civic in 2002. Waited a year with no car payment to save up a small down payment. Traded in the Civic for my 2003 Celica.

cool

I originally was divided between wanting a Prelude and a Celica. when the Preludes got discontinued, it was like I had been stabbed. I settled on wanting a Celica but was unwilling to get it becuase my stepdaughter is in College, and we're spending a lot of money on her, so I had decided to wait until she was done to get a new car. Then I found out they were discontinuing the Celica too. Well, that was too much; BOTH of the cars I really liked getting discontinued. So I pretty much got a Celica right away, my '04 GTS. Loved it ever since.
