If we had been alive in 1974 like many others still mourning the death of the muscle car would have likely scoffed at the idea that the tiny imported cars replacing the beautiful gas guzzlers we loved would ever be collectible.
There is nothing monstrous about a stock Fiat 126. This 126 left the factory in 1989 with a tiny 24 horsepower engine and took a painful 33 seconds to go from 0-60. As you can see from the above video, this Fiat has been "slightly" modified from its stock form.
A long, long time ago in a galaxy called Hollywood, Twentieth Century Fox decided to promote a crazy little sci-fi movie called "Star Wars" by giving away this custom-painted Toyota Celica. Now the Empire wants to know: Have you seen this car?
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.
