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.
Welcome to Used Car Face Off, where we find two similar or similarly priced used cars and ask you which one you would buy. Choose wisely!
The 1970s were the years when the Japanese automakers really came full force into the sports car game. These days, cars like the Datsun 510 and 240Z and the Mazda RX-7 are considered classics, but no one really talks about the original Toyota Celica.
I'll never understand all the love for Eleanor.
Quick, what's your favorite car from the original The Fast & The Furious? (You know, the one from back when those movies were more or less about cars and street racing, not aircraft hijacking.)
Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.
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.
After fully restoring a 1980 Toyota Celica Rally Car it seems there is only one thing left to do—strap in a former Australian Rally Champion and see what the car can do.
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.
