This "Star Wars"-themed Toyota Celica GT liftback was created as a promotional giveaway during those heady days in 1977, when the only face with greater exposure than C3P0's was the one in the mirror. The modded Celica, which was given away in 20th Century Fox's "Space Fantasy Sweepstakes," included customized body components, seats adorned with silver piping and silver grommets and an elaborate custom paint scheme. Nearly six sequels and prequals later, the 28-year-old craft, alas, has likely gone the way of the Death Star.
