I so miss my 75' ST Celica. What a great car! My 95 Tacoma had the nex gen version of this motor and it still had the exact same Rev drop. Drive a 2.4 manual * Tacoma and you will nice the drop.

I wouldn't turn one down for free. Love the 70's Toys. Yes I'm old at 52 according to the goof narrating.

We had one of these as well in the mid 80's , metallic dark green, blk interior which i recall the smell of a stupid hot inferno of hot vinyl in the summer and i still remember the solid and sporty drive and an engine you wouldnt think wasnt american it had a distinct vibration to it.

This guy deserves some props for not committing a heresy by slapping something like 20" chrome wheels on it.

Isn't it called the rust belt because all the industry was left to rust? I don't think it's because of causes rust because otherwise New York and Maine and all those states would be rust belt too right?

Yep, very fond memories of the vintage Celica as well as the 80 Mazda RX7. Fun cars to drive and more power than expected (no muscle car, but still).

love it. I learned to drive on a '68 GT. Mine was red which was nice because you couldn't see the rust as bad. 20R + 5 Sp.

Why the heck have suspension? If that's all the movement you want, just weld it all solid. All that movement on the head camera almost made me barf.

Would anyone recommend this as a first car as a young adult? It seems oddly practical

Loved these cars had MANY Celica's with Over 200 Thousand on the clock. Then sold them for more than I paid (used). All Steel, stylish and a BLAST to drive with the hydraulic clutch. Could 'Feather' that clutch and launch Right PAST Mustangs and Camaros... FUN!! And the Ladies loved it too ;) PS. Thanks SO Much for the Go Pro driver's point of view ... Ah.. Memories!!!

Cars in the 1970s had vast differences in build quality, performance, and personality. Some were fantastic, some were absolutely miserable to own. I think that's hard to understand for those who have grown up in the more modern era... pretty much any new car you get into now is roughly the same, they have been homogenized with great build quality, and pretty much the same performance, regardless of which builder you choose. Today you don't see the vast differences that you saw in those days between a Celica and a Gremlin... and if you did the poorer company would go belly up much sooner than they would have 40 years ago.

Is the road that bad or is something up with the tires or suspension? Dat bounce! Those 5MPH bumpers wreak havoc on styling. Here in the rest of the world the front bumper was more of a wraparound design reminiscent of the ‘71 Plymouth Satellite. I got a secret crush on these things, good luck finding one though. Nobody sells theirs, they’re all in hands of enthusiasts.

This is my favorite car you've ever driven. I used to have a 1980 Celica. It was also brown on brown. I got a set of celica supra rims fir it and painted the inset parts on the rims black. It was my favorite car I have ever owned. and I've owned 26 vehicles.

The only reason it’s not a pile of rust is cause it spent most of its life in the west coast

You're spot on with the first project. I just bought a 77 liftback from California and had it trailered to Illinois. My first project and I'm literally learning manual on this thing. Whether I bring it to a classic car show or a alley tuner meet, everyone loves it and I couldn't have asked for a better car. The jdm smile bumpers are a must.

My father had two 1977 1st one was totaled by my step sister. 2nd he drove the wheels off that thing. Both were the light tan with the shadow kit on the back window. He just loved that car and I thought it was the coolest car on the block as a kid.

The 20R was maybe the best engine Toyota ever made. My sister put over 260,000 mile on one in a 1980 Celica GT Liftback. And she never maintained it properly either. It was still running fine when she sold it, though it had developed a small oil leak at the front main seal, probably caused by the super dirty oil that was always in it.

When I was a kid my mother drove a Celica with *Pop Up Headlights* . She drove that thing so long the key wore out and fell out of the ignition once. She gave it to her sister who didn't have a car at the time and she ruined it on cheap gas. With some TLC I bet that thing would still be ruling the road today.

I had this exact same car when I was in high school except mine was orange. I paid a modest price of $250 for the car back in 1989. Even though I had the car slammed to the ground, it never gave me any problems. Toyota's are simply undeniable!

My dad owned a 1971 model. The rear windows rolled down. As a kid, I loved that car. It rusted into oblivion eventually due to salt used during the winter in PA.

As a late Baby Boomer (born 1959) this car brings back happy memories of my introduction to hot and tuneable Japanese sport compacts. You are right that these cars responds great to simple moderately priced bolt-ons. A set of Pacesetter long tube headers, a little hotter cam and if you had the coin a set of (40mm) Weber or Mikuni-Solex side draft carbs. Man you were flying!!! Easily pushing 175 to 200 HP at the crank . The real super hot engine swap for these cars was the JDM 2 liter 18R-G twin cam motor. Which a friend of mine did to his '77 Celica GT. After all the 20R was a slightly undersquare truck motor. A good motor for the US market b/c of lower end torque production but the 18R-G was a real revver.

RegularCarReviews is great because his intelligence, wit and wisdom is understated, but clearly present. He is sharp and discriminating to an extreme degree. He is like a supercar rolling at 30mph. This guy might be commenting on cars, but you can tell by the structure of his sentences and the wisdom of his words, that he is extremely intelligent.
