Okay, here's the scoop. I'm in the market for a Celica. There is only one '04 model nearby, and it's a Spectra Blue GT (The color I want) but it's an auto.
My other choice, if I want a manual, is to buy a used silver '01 GT at a chevy dealership. The car has 41,735 miles on it. The dealership is asking $14,000 for it, but the people who own the dealership are friends and neighbors of ours, so I can swing anywhere between 11 and 12.5 for it. Here's my predicament: My parents don't want me in a used car, be it Toyota or not (personally I don't mind). My parents want to know from you guys/girls if this car is worth risking 12 on. I'd also like to add that I really(x5) don't want an auto, because the Celica is way too cool looking to do it an injustice like buying it with an auto. What do I do???
BTW: The dealership's site ishttp://mypmtsite.com/client/dl_phillips/search.php
Just search for it and take a look if you like.
