1997 Toyota Celica ST 2dr Hatchback


i bought this car with plans to turn it
in to a pocket rocket, i suppose that
is my only dissapointment. toyota
marketted the celica as an economy car
in america, using heads with smaller
valves gives them the awesome gas
millage they get. but for speed
enthusiasts like myself, we have to
spend twice as much as honda and acura
owners to get the HP we desire. but i
love the look and the suspention is
great, especially with a set of TRD
springs, and i have done a few
performance mods that have probably put
me up to the GT model's status, but
untill i change the heads i'll never
have the power i originally intended it
to have.

Best Features

i love the intereior (screw the people in the back seat) and the incredible handling.

Worst Features

sell the japaneese and european models with 3S-GE engines and don't forget about the GT-4 its 3S-GTE super powerplant!
