Besides the ricey overall look to it, i'd say it's a pretty nice car.
I wonder what motivated them to build such a car out of a tC.
Because it's easier to do than a Celica (other than the $500,000 500HP AWD Celica), it's a new car that's going to get more support than our Celicas being easier to mod (they have brochures at the Toyota dealership for an AEM CAI
or Hotchkis strut bar as options for the TC), and our Celica's are disconntinued. New and virgin is always good, but deters after market companies from developing new products especially if "Dad" or "Big Brother" doesn't let the girl out. A new old girl that came back into your life with the knowelege of an earlier time and the support of "Dad" and "Big Brother" and all the "family members" at the table for dinner waiting for the you to show up and carve the roast beast is reason enough.
