So often we tie our cars to the great events in our lives. This is my story.
The A20-generation Toyota Celica is one of the coolest cars Japan ever built. Styled to vaguely ape the proportions of early 1970s American pony cars, the first-gen is often referred to colloquially as the ‘Mustang Celica’. It’s a great shape that looks even better in these awesome photos from Derick Yan.
As a country, we here in America are doing better about getting very fast and awesome foreign cars than we were, say, 10 or 20 years ago. You can buy a Ford Focus RS and a Civic Type R here now. This wasn’t always the case! Wind the clock back and you’ll find one of my favorites pieces of forbidden car-fruit: the…
If you’re not yet familiar with Rod Millen’s Leadfoot Festival, you really ought be. In the same vein as Goodwood’s Festival of Speed hillclimb, Rod Millen has crafted his own hillclimb in New Zealand on his own property, which he lovingly refers to as ‘Leadfoot Ranch’.
The best Toyota Supra was actually a Celica.
We never got the Toyota Celica XX here in America, which might be why I had never seen this ad of beauty and Grace Jones.
The Toyota Celica GT-S did mood lighting better than any other Japanese sporty coupe in 1987.
Ferraris are far too expensive for a normal person to own, right? What if I told you that you could own your very own “Ferrari” “F430” “Scuderia” (winking aggressively) for the price of a well-pptioned Honda Civic? Before you press the panic button on your car keys, check out this Craigslist post for a Ferrari F430…
It’s the 1984 Toyota Celica. Front engine, rear-wheel drive and pop-up headlights. What more car do you need?
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.
