Paleontologists presently believe that the Neanderthals and more modern humans at one time bumped uglies. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe old-school Celica has likewise been given a bun in the oven from a more modern Honda, but is it a value so simple that even a caveman can understand it?
The original Celica may not have had the sex appeal of Toyota's previous sport coupe, the 2000 GT, but it was a hell of a lot more accessible. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe '73 coupe has an 18RG evolutionarily derived from the 2000 GT's DOHC six, but will its price make you say GTFO?
The fact that no specific mileage figures are mentioned in this ad for a pre-big-bumper Celica shows that it's probably a pre-Arab Oil Embargo release. This makes this "economy car" pitch for the sporty-for-its-time first-gen Celica a bit puzzling.
