Anyone else think this is as cool as I do.

Would love it as a daily summer driver.

The side mirrors ruin it for me

That example is not my favorite, but early Celicas in general I dig. The car I learned to drive stick on, and the only car my parents have ever, to this day bought new, was a 1978 Celica. They sold it in 2001. Kind of sad actually. British Racing Green. It was fun.

I dig it. Nice to see it's still rockin' the rear window louvers.

I really like it. Super fun car. The JDM mirrors are a little weird to see.

My first car was a '78 Celica. LOVED that car. got rear ended at a light, very sad day for me.

Hatchback? One of my early memories of driving was downshifting coming down a hill on icy roads and doing a complete 360 in the middle of traffic. Lesson learned, don't downshift a rear wheel drive vehicle on slick roads!

Some friends of ours had a coupe, ours was the hatchback.

So much fun!

I love those cars! I always thought it'd be cool to swap in a 7mgte or 1jzte.
