I have owned my celica for a little over a year now. My daily round-trip commute is 45 miles. I live up in Northwest Arkansas where 90% of the backroads are twisty small mountains. This car is awesome for that type of driving. It has power when kept in the meaty part of the rpm-band, and it feels like it's apart of the road when driven to such extremes.
It's sure-footed handling and braking; 6000-8100 rpm range. The deep-throated to high-pitched 'motorcycle' sound as the engine winds up through the power band. It's a toyota.
The hood scoop--I would hope next time there is an intercooled turbo on the end of that thing.
