Fantastic quality automobile... classic

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Convertible

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.




Owner for 8 years

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Celica GT 25th Anniversary 2dr Convertible

I bought my 25th anniv GT convert new and have ahd 8 years and 150k miles of trouble free ownership. 5-speed and staying out of the air conditioning = pretty decent performance, but the car would feel a bit slow to me if automatic and 4 passengers.




Drive in style

THIS VEHICLE TURNS HEADS. THE RED PAINT IS OUTSTANDING. GOES IN THE SNOW, NOT ALL SHOW. WILL MAINTAIN ITS VALUE. HANDLES LIKE A NEW MERCEDES AT 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 2015




Exellent

The best of the celicas

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Celica GT 25th Anniversary 2dr Convertible

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.




Good solid fun convertible

I have a 1996 Toyota Celica that had the same problems a couple of years ago, it turned out to be the timing belt. That's a possibility....

My 2000 Celica GT-S is my second Celica. In 1977, I bought a '74 GT. I modified slightly. Of course I had a Killer Stereo ( at the time, the SuperTuner 3 was it! ). I really enjoyed it....
