Finally got a car, but it's a temporary one!

Hey guys! Well I never thought I'd get it, but my parents surprised me with a 1998 Honda Accord 4D, why not a 2D? Oh well, I'm still grateful. Anyways, they though it would keep me occupied until I get a 2005 Celica GTS next year. I only have one pic, but tell me what you think what I can do to mod the hell out of it!
P.S. I know this is e-celica, but there's got to be some honda fanatics out the on the e-celica forums database.

Drop it with some rims at least 17 and a simple lip kit, and tint out the windows. itll look nice and not be over done.

Actually, i'm right. It says that it will be discontinued by the end of the 2005 model year.

TORRANCE, Calif., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today announced its plans to discontinue sales of the Celica and MR2 sports cars by the end of the 2005 model year.

"The Celica and MR2 have been a favorite among sports car enthusiasts since their introductions in the U.S.," said Don Esmond, senior vice president and general manager of the Toyota Division. "The past few years, however, have been very challenging for both Celica and MR2 as competition in a segment where 'what's new' dominates and we continue to add more exciting and youth...

My because plans to purchase the car after I get the Celica, but I still want to mod it no matter because he says he'll pay the kbb asking price plus the price of all the mods i put up on it. So, it's a win/win situation! cool

Like most cars in their final days, they won't produce the cars for their last actual year, but rather just sell the ones that are left over from the year before.

04's will be sold in 05, and if you want to call them 05's you can, but they won't technically be.





As for modding the Accord, leave it stock, that's what I did with mine. It's an economy car. It isn't fast, and it won't be fast. Save your time and money for when you buy the Celica. You'll thank me later.

They say the end of the '05 Model year, which would mean they will make them up until the end of the '05 model year (not sure exactly when that is tongue ). So there will be '05's, I would think. Will probably be exact clones of the '04's, but hey tongue

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY MODDING I IF YOUR GETTING A NEW CAR IN LESS THAN A YEAR!..Start buying all your celi parts now. have them all stored up..and then, when you get the celica. take it to a shop and have him do EVERYTHING at once. It will blow your mind. Go for stock to super mod in less than 2 weesk flat.

Have you thought about getting another car besides a Celica? Don't get me wrong...I love my Celica. But since it's going to be discontinued, maybe it's best for you to buy a car that's still in production.

sorry but you are wrong...I work for Denso and Toyota has forecasted all of our parts for the celica till the end of the 05 production year...so unless they plan on just buying the parts to let them sit, there will be an ACTUAL 05 model year
