You are in the Toyota Celica
What is this discussion about?
Toyota Celica, Coupe, Hatchback
#794 of 1560 Hey, I resemble that remark...

I agree that the 84 Celicas/Supras are better looking than the current Toyota models, and most other makers current sports coupes. I love em. I never really liked Preludes, maybe the really old ones but none of the newer ones so I won't be missing it.
But I think Honda did an even worse job of "styling these days" with the RSX and the god awful 2003 Accord (not part of the topic but I can see how the RSX was born). But I'm sure I will become numb to them in time after having to see the majority of the population driving them. Sigh.
I'm happy that you will be saving money with the economy sized tar and feathers because you're going to need it if you start a styling war and are trying to defend Honda, King of the Bland! =)

Whatryall talking about?
I think my 2000 Celica has distinct Ferrari-like styling. EVERYONE comments on it, and how "cool" it is!
#796 of 1560 Need I be concerned?

I have a young friend (age 19) who is buying his first new car, and he is
purchasing a Celica GT. He has just gotten the loan together and the credit
union has taken his downpayment and the insurance is in order. The car
itself will be shipped soon, he hasnt driven it because it's coming from another
island. Anyway, neither he nor I have any doubts that the Celica is a good
car and is what he wants. But I have a lingering concern about roominess.
He is 6'1" and about 175 lbs. Will he be fitting ok into the driver's seat? I
just remember riding in a Mazda sportscar (RX7?) about 15 years ago
and I couldnt even sit up straight. This wont happen with the Celica,
and my friend, I hope??

Sitting up straight could be a problem. I'm 6', and I tend to lean backwards. When I sit upright though, I find my head touching a bit.

to recline that driver's seat! 6'1" will not fit under that roof with the seat back up straight.
One reason I sold mine...<sigh>
#799 of 1560 Celia GT vs. RSX

Hi all, I am considering buying a automatic Celica GT or a Acura RSX (not the type S). Haven't test-drove any yet. But is there any data on the 0-60 of these two cars? Consumer Reports only has data on the GT-S. Also, which car has more space (both cockpit and trunk)? Thanks for your input.

Can anyone give me information about whether or not a 1992 Toyota Celica ST's engine is interference?
Sep 09, 2002 (3:34 pm)
(1) none of the Toyota 1.8L engines is interference, no worries there. Check Gates Rubber website if you want exact specs on all makes and models timing belts...
(2) Celica has more trunk space but less cockpit space than RSX. As far as performance, I have only driven the auto in the celica, but it is a lot slower than the celica manual, so unless RSX has the same problem, I assume the RSX auto would be faster. Celica is the leader for handling and braking.

2ZZ-GE is interference.
All the GE heads are interference design
FE heads are non-interference
