Celica still has the same affect on me as it did back in 2000

Even though I no longer drive a Celica. I must say, I still have the same admiration for it when it first came out in summer of 1999. Everytime I see one on the road, I can't help but notice and admire the design of the car. IMO, the design still holds up even 5 years after its release. Today I went back to my roots and got to work on one. It felt good siiting in the driver's seat, and having 2 seats in back! If I were to do it all over again and choose between the tC and Celica, I'd pick the Celica, ofcourse smile.

I would have kept it if I could, but it wouldn't be logical for me to have 2 cars at this time.

I love the Celica. If I'd gotten a stick, I probably wouldn't be selling my car right now. Still, I've realized that I'm just a convertible person. spineyes

^^^ once you have a convertible, you'll never go back. at least that's how most ppl i've met who had a convertible feel, including me. grin

The Celica is damn sexy. But I think the 93-95 RX7s' design was also ahead of it's time. thumbsup thumbsup

Same like Sultan. When it first came out, I hated the Celica. A good friend of mine was telling me to get a Celica as my first car because I was car shopping at the time. I told him that I was thinking of getting a GSR instead. But what do you know, as I was comparing the Celica, Integra, and Civic, I ended up with a Celica. When I had to give the car away, there was something missing when I was driving that POS Focus. After selling the Focus, I could have gotten a totally different car at around the 11K price range, but I had to come back to a Celica and finish the run thumbsup

O yeah, today, as I was leaving work. I was at a stop light, and there was this Eclipse rolling in front of me going the other direction and the girl in the passenger side was straight drooling over the Celica. Nice!

Thats exactly what happened to me ^^^. I thought it was a
Mitsu.

I still walk outside and stare at my car for half an hour a day. When ppl in Celicas drive by, I wave at them. I don't know the ppl, but they drive a Celica, so they know the passion of driving a great car! Its like family. thumbsup
