most think it's a girls car for one thing. Not all but a lot of the guys do. They just think it's another ricer and hate on it of course.

in my town, most ppl are honda lovers. oh, b16 engine in a hatch, silvia up ur ass, and all that bs. naturally, they dont like celicas that much, they are rare in the city, noone really seems to like celicas for no reason, maybe cz its a toyota.

there are almost no car enthusiasts around here. they all think that a mustang is the fastest thing on four wheels and it's the end-all be-all of cool looking cars.

The small town I live in (about 10,000) had only 2 other Celi's when I bought mine. Now there are at least a dozen or so. It used to be unique! cry

Most people seem to like it.

It's a small town (around 500), and there're two other Celicas (both GT, one black, one silver). And I think they both had them before me tongue

some kids live across the street and are amazed by my car, even did a burnout to satisfy their amazement rolleyes. We have ALOT of rice rolling around.

Girls are amazed by the car too. Some chicks were at the toyota dealer getting their camry fixed and i showed them it in it's sexyness...girls were like "OMFG!" rofl

Classic example:

I first got my GTS (about a week into it) and was going to the hospital. Some jerk-off puerto ricans in a civic sedan roll down their windows and as if it's a girls car. I reply: "Nah it's not a girls car, wanna find out?". Wasn't even a race, roll by them with middle finger out the window waving by.

I guess it varies from place to place... spineyes

My whole family thinks my car is hot. My neighbors love it too. Infact, i'm starting to see a couple pop up. Another one on my street and two more one street up. goodjob

My close friend hates on it, but he drives a Civic, so nobody cares what he thinks. thumbsdown

^^yeah. well, as long as it's back, i just found someone else that loves the car. i normally park next to the same girl everyday at school, and the other day she gave a ride to one of her friends. it turns out that her friends dream car is a celica. she seemed pretty inpressed with the car (and me), so score +1 for the celica.

Celicas and Toyotas in general are pretty well respected in the UK, they've been around for ages and always come in the top 10 in customer satisfaction and reliability surveys. Celicas don't really have a boy-racer or ricer type image round here (least not until I fly through town revving the balls off it!) But I have noticed quite a few female heads following as I drive past thumbsup

It's a beautiful car - recognise!! cool

(Used to have much fun in the old days when my dad dropped me off at school in the brand new Supras etc.. we had one of the first Gen 5 Celica GT4's out on the road the week they were released over here.. now that really dropped some jaws!!)

everyone who I've come across has had nothing but good things to say about my car. I get compliments from people of all ages, from kids down the block to older people I work with. I also get complimented that I look good driving it. wink my boyfriend used to say that celicas are more of a car for a girl to have, but the celicas that I see around town are owned by guys so I think that proves his point wrong. He also has no problem driving it either.
