protest to Toyota and TRD CEO AND HIGH ADMIN

i am tring to put together a letter to send to TRD and Toyota admin to discuss the lack of performance items for the best damn compact car on the market. I mean its a damn shame. We have the baddest looking car out their. Nothing should be able to pass us. All of us as customers support their brand and defend it. We are all loyal customers. I want performance. When I complete the letter or email, what ever I decide is better once I research the contact methods I would like to add as many names ( backers ) as I can. If I have you support send your name. I will get this info to the CEO of TOYOTA. If he doesnt speek english than I will find a translator. fck

The parts you need are out there, they just cost a bunch. But, you gotta pay to play. Sending letters won't change anything. spineyes

Hey I'm not complaining about my car. And by the way 20 grand yea right. Sticker was 28,800. Gts fully loaded with agression package. Anyway you have a right to your input. You now there are thousands of items for other sport compacts and we have the best look and brand but yet limited mods available. I just think Toyota could offer more in their TRD line up for our vehicle. They have a super charger for a frigen Matrix, no disrespect to Matrix owners but come on. A camelback wagon came have a super charger from TRD but the celica only has springs,clutches and exhaust. I love my celica and I'm not complaining about it but I just want to now if this is a recognizes issue to Toyota. I mean if they dont know that their is a want for something how are they going to fix it. You now it may help desicion making in further celica development. One voice is hard to hear but you cant ignore thousands. If you have a problem with what you are reading and you think its bullshit than leave this post. I'm not forcing you to read this. I have the president and chairmans info for Toyota motor corporation. I need their email addresses. I will do more research tomm. If anyone can help with any contact info it would be greatly appreciated. If they just made a upgrade for the ECU from TRD I would tight. Anyway everyone one here thinks it so dont respond with a bunch of neg shit. If you are part of this site than we all have simmilar shit in common.

I have a sunroof that is crazing, I read the SB for the 2000. Do all the sun roofs scraze in the end? (I am getting it replaced under the factory warrenty) Will the new one craze too?

Noobies - FYI: The so-called crazing phenomenon corresponds to the formation and extension of a craze network in a polymer matrix. A craze is a kind of crack but bridged by fibrils of oriented matrix polymer chains, normal to craze surfaces.

one of these protests was put together in 2000 and ran until 2002 with more than 5,000 replies from Celica owners/enthusiasts. in each reply was the member's first name & last, year make and model of their car, plus the members city, state and contact email address.

it has been over 3 years since this was first put together and nothing much has really been done since.

the reason I think this topic is funny is because if you look at all the parts available for this car from aftermarket companies, you can pretty much find anything you need to make it the car you want - someone earlier posted, "you have to pay to play", this is what that comment basically means rice

Basically, Toyota feels that although many car enthusiasts have enjoyed the sporting Celica over the years, it's just not pulling its weight these days because it's getting beaten up by the likes of the Matrix, Corolla XRS, Solara coupe and the whole damn Scion line.

The Celica was born in 1971 and had a hand in establishing the speedy subcompact segment, and was named Import Car of the Year and put on Car and Drivers Ten Best Cars list during its lifetime.

http://pressroom.toyota.com/photo_library/display_release.html?id=20040716

Toyota stops Celica production by the end of the 05 model year. Get a 40 ready so you can pour some out for your fallen homies

on a side note, lets get a bunch of people to write to Toyota and have them bring back the 7th gen so they can make more parts for it thumbsup
