thats cos at the time of the 1st gen the dragon was the sign for toyota.

Celica: The name is derived from the Spanish word for "heavenly" or "celestial".

and it is a dragon..

it means heavenly or celestial...the dragon comes from a japanese myth about a woman called Sarina who rode a dragon...

So in essence you would be riding your own dragon when you drive your celica.

Also, Sarina is like carina.. the celica's twin sister.

It's a straight up dragon. Like on the front of the Viking ships.

infact it you look at it, it looks like a boat with 2 sails.
