I visited an old friend of mine who owns a car shop. He had a collection of old SA RX-7s where he had 1 project build and probably 3 parts cars. While catching up with life, an old guy walks in asking for an oil change; then I was stunned, as I was watching a red 1st gen Celica coupe enter the ramp. I smiled as it was being prepped to be lifted and said to my self, “Man, that is a beautiful car”. 36 years and the style is still appealing. Not only it was a beauty but it also packed a punch with its well kept 2.0 4cylinder, ohhh! it sounded so nice. Even if it was dubbed as the “Japanese Mustang”, the 1st gen Celica will always bring a smile to my face. Just like the meaning of its name, it is definitely “celestial”. Here are some 1st gen Celica “eye-candy” i found online. Enjoy!
