Hi there! I’m Helen, Kristen Lee’s mom. Here is a photo of me with my 1983 Toyota Celica. It was the first car I bought.
More than a few people are bummed that when the Scion FR-S got a Toyota badge, it didn’t get the name Celica name to go with it. The Celica nameplate has always meant fun on the cheap, and now a decade into the used market, that’s more true than ever.
You might think you’ve seen some a good driving. Excellent car control. Sharp reactions. Nah, son. Look at the snap on this ‘70s Celica drift car. Reassess those skill levels.
Suddenly, I am extremely jealous.
What happens when you put a 1,000 horsepower twin-turbo Lexus V8 in a 1971 Toyota Celica, with GT-R all-wheel drive? You tear my brain in half. Also you top 190 mph in a 1,000-meter sprint.
During the busy holiday season, don’t forget what’s really important: Toyota Celica.
O mighty and eternal Celica GT-Four, we come to you in times that try our souls. Please show us the way. Grant us your wisdom.
Do car-build shows bother you? Are they too heavy on drama without enough actual building for you? Do you find yourself more interested the actual fabrication than the fabricated drama between mechanics or cast members? Do you wonder how Richard Rawlings gets any work done with all those rings? Well, two Brits are…
When you think of an all wheel drive rally car for the road, you think of an Audi Quattro, or a Subaru WRX, or a Mitsubishi Evo. You do not think of a grey 1988 Toyota Celica.
Nobody ever talks about the seventh-generation Celica. I was a big fan of its looks back in the day. Has it held up?
At first glimpse at the paddocks, it looks like a crazy prototype that’s way past its glory days. Then, they push the start button, end everything changes.
If you follow the usual Internet discussion, Toyota built one rear-drive compact car back in the '80s, and it was called the AE86. But they had more than just the humble Corolla.
I don't like the last Toyota made in the 20th century very much in stock form, but the Cruising Deck Concept is a very different story.
Many cars are Toyota Celica, and many Toyota Celicas are car, but what car is most Toyota Celica?
Buying a '73 Baja Bug for $1500 was one of the best/worst decisions I've made, but it almost didn't happen. I nearly bought this rusty 1977 Toyota Celica instead.
With Jalopnik, it's easy to know. Jason has the Bug, Raph has a higher Bug, Patrick rocks a Mini, Travis jams himself into a Miata while I have an Italian exotic. But let's see what moves Evo's crew!
Back in the 1980s and 90s, Toyota was a formidable force in the world of rallying, with all sorts of Celicas and Corollas flying across the dirt like it was nobody's business. That's not the case as much anymore, but a number of those legendary cars have been preserved for posterity in Europe.
The first generation Toyota Celica is, arguably, the prettiest of all the cars named "the Toyota Celica." And this one is GREEN.
