1994 Toyota Celica
 
So, I am thinking of purchasing a used celica (can't afford anything newer than a '93, unfortunately). Everything in it is stock, no extras really but I was wondering what any of you think would be a reasonable price to pay for this car. It is in pretty good condition, only 137,000 miles. So, any ideas.....?????? thanks!

2zzTahara 03-26-2007 01:16 PM

Start with checking it on www.kbb.com

adamns 03-26-2007 01:52 PM

I just sold my 93 gts with 143k mi. for $4000 a few weeks ago.

lynch 03-26-2007 03:08 PM

thanks for the feedback. I think I can probably get this for around $3000, so it sounds like it could be a good deal. Going to go and get a pre buy inspection done on it first though...can't be too safe these day! Adams, why did you see your celica, did you encounter many problems with it when you owned it?

jlitman 03-26-2007 04:15 PM

I had one -- they're pretty nice, but not as nimble as the previous gen or ours. Very reliable. Make sure you check it throughly, or have a mechanic do it. I think I sold mine for around $3250 with less mileage -- but check KBB as it will vary from region to region. Note: KBB numbers are on the high side...

I had driven it nearly 5 years. It was having some rust issues and I just wanted an upgrade.

Celica GT4
 
Hi, how much of a upgrade would u consider this, from a 00 Celica GTS 6speed, to a 1995 Celica GT4 5speed(260hp 3sgte motor), anyone just wondering cause it might happen

Blue Bomber 08-17-2007 04:30 PM

A small step up stock vs stock, but when it comes to modding, it's no contest. Turbo engines love mods. Not sure if the handling will match up, though (AWD is heavy), but AWD will definitely pull you out of corners quicker than FWD.

Leaving the U.S. sometime soon?

Burrcold 08-17-2007 09:04 PM

I would take a 6th gen gt4 anyday over a 7th gen

GTsRasta 08-17-2007 10:19 PM

They're heavier, not much quicker mod for mod when a GTS becomes turbo'd, and will get blown away when a 2zz is heavily moded. Plus it's older technology. I'd pass. In fact, I just saw Mike325i's alltrac tonight at the Brooklyn meet with h8ternal. He says it himself that it's really heavy, especially when he compares it to his Lotus Exige S.

Well just about everything is heavy compared to one of those. ;)

supra12big 08-18-2007 08:44 AM

eh, AWD 3SG? I'd love to mess with it.

marc 08-18-2007 01:54 PM

well, honestly, it'd be a nightmare to own

if they are anything like the 165s i agree.

supra12big 08-18-2007 04:36 PM

are they good motors, whats there problem?

Blue Bomber 08-18-2007 05:41 PM

You'll probably have a harder time than usual finding replacement parts. Especially for the engine and tranny, and possibly the suspension if it uses a different setup than the regular Celica (Super Strut, maybe). The engine itself is as reliable as any Toyota if it was taken care of.

Planned? Sounds like you haven't done enough research on this.

It's a pig, but shouldn't matter once you get it rolling. Aside from performance aspects, you should look around for the availability of parts, both aftermarket and stock parts. It's one thing to have a turboed car, and another thing to maintain it. The ST205 doesn't have much of an aftermarket, smaller compared to the 7th gen's.

supra12big 08-19-2007 07:32 AM

actually I have done a bit of research, for aftermarket, therere a whole new world that opens up, like downpipe, turbo manifold, boost controller, bigger turbos, front mounts, bovs, plenty I think, in stock parts, I got a shop around me which provides everything I need, but I just gotta be sure this motor is good?

exactly
old, turbo cars break - all the time. When you balance the pleasure of driving compared with the headache of fixing the car all the time and finding replacement parts (especially considering this car was never sold in America), you'll find that its just not worth it in the end.

This car is sweet,I am so glad I own one,If someone has the money I would buy this car with no hesitation...

Gas-n-Grease 09-22-2007 10:11 AM

ooo very clean. The engine bay looks a little beat up though, but I wouldn't mind having one of my own.

Blue Bomber 09-23-2007 09:50 AM

:moved:

Nice but probably not fast in its current form. It's on a stock turbo, and has a larger fuel pump and injectors, but nothing to control them. Definitely clean looking, though, especially since it's in NY.




GTsRasta 09-23-2007 11:50 AM

x1,000,000 for a NY car. It would've made a nice project car for me if I was older.

marc 09-23-2007 07:21 PM

you'd have to be pretty stupid to buy that car because

a) its clearly an incredibly old, previously molested turbo car

b) at $3000, the reserve still hasn't been met.

post the YugiOh 7th Gen! I didn't even know such a thing existed.

nice wheels... ugly airbrushing.

xantonin 02-16-2008 01:45 PM

Although I'm not a huge fan of LOTR, the job was done well and looks like it's good quality. Very artistic too.

Zero 02-16-2008 02:38 PM

Took me a while to find it; I was falling asleep searching through the homepage rotation picture section but I found it! :chuckles:

Now that's fandom! :puke:

SharkyGTS 02-19-2008 11:20 AM

Is it just me, or does the Frodo on that car (b/w Gandalf and Strider) look like Michael Jackson from Thriller?

MicaCeli 02-19-2008 12:31 PM

That is SOOO sweet.

Now that you mention it, it does a little.

Boosted2.0 02-19-2008 01:14 PM

I notice that car is RHD - Bet you its from New Zealand where they shot the LOTR movies. Could be Australia too though looking at those weird pickups in the background.

GSBoek 02-19-2008 11:56 PM

Now that you mention it, there's a lot of Holden Monaros in those pics.
