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. » 9/22/14 11:19am 9/22/14 11:19am

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. » 7/09/13 4:07pm 7/09/13 4:07pm

Fiat 126 with one liter Yamaha engine is a high revving monster

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. » 1/29/12 5:00pm 1/29/12 5:00pm

Malaise Knocks Toyota's Copywriters Into Coma, '73 Celica ST Pitched As…

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. » 7/31/10 11:00am 7/31/10 11:00am
