The big name mags have covered celicas but there is no celica specific mag, celicas are not that popular.

Sport Compact Car (SCC) generally covers whatever is "hot" with the automotive enthusiast teens these days...

There are many other mags, but with SCC you not only get the articles and good photography, but it also doubles as a "parts catalog" thumbsup due to the large percentage of advertisements in it grin

Import Tuner is alright, but much thinner and the photo quality is not as great in comparison to the other mags (too "grainy" and dark).

Super Street is alright too - but it covers more of the "event scene" than the actual vehicles.

My suggestion - Whatever mag you decide to pickup, also grab yourself a copy of FHM and you'll be complete grin

Import magazines really suck. I dunno about all of you, but I prefer Motortrend, C&D, R&T

gotta agree there. same stuff over and over again, nothing really impressive anymore. the only tuner mag i look at now is modified luxury and exotics.

Top Gear is with Jeremy Clarkson right? IMO, Jeremy Clarkson = fat british douchebag full of himself. I don't like him at all. EVO is an alright magazine, i don't subscribe because I don't really like reading it.

turbo magazine (good read)

sport compact car (i have a subscription, love it. i like how it doesnt just stick to imports, it covers basically any sport compact wehther it be domestic, european, or asian)

import tuner (i let my subscription expire because i wasn't satisfied with it)

super street (event coverage second to none, adequate car coverage, funnier-than-average editors)

modified (look before you buy..covers everything but not always in the same issue so sometimes the issue may hardly be applicable to your interests)

performance auto & sound (love it, covers everything in every issue. great installs, great system advice & testing, great coverage of various types of vehicles..although the write-ups are average).

car audio & electronics (very good, mostly deals with sport compact cars but covers all vehicle types)

theres also a fairly new magazine for sport compacts by car and driver..although i forget its name. i bought the one with the widebody TRD celica. it was pretty good i would say.
