This car was owned by my brother first for 4 years. It went through many drivers when he owned it and was always extremely reliable and economical to own. I bought it a few months ago after a minor accident. I fixed the imperfections and am now driving it everyday. It's getting about 23 mpg with the top down most of the time. It shifts very smooth and takes corners effortlessly. Acceleration is about 10 seconds to 60 mph (automatic) and has about 93k on it. The styling is classic and even though a '96, not out of style in the least. Mine is black on black and always gets great comments on it's looks.

I bought my 25th anniv GT convert new

trouble free ownership. 5-speed and

pretty decent performance, but the car
would feel a bit slow to me if
automatic and 4 passengers.

PAINT IS OUTSTANDING. GOES IN THE

A THIRD THE COST. SHOULD OUTLAST ALL
THE REST. WILL FIT FOUR SETS OF GOLF
CLUBS IN THE TRUNK! I WISH I COULD
PURCHASE ANOTHER IDENTICAL VEHICLE IN

A great touring car with enough pep
to get up the most challenging hills.
A stick is recommended because it
gives the car more get up and go,
The handling is great and the trunk is
spacious for a car of its size.
:sick: With my 1994 Celica going dead I have been having restless nights with nightmares.Not withstanding its age( and miles 145,540). And I have always taken care of preventive care of my Celica. I...
