"The Yost girls used this car through highschool and college. Both are off raising families so i decided to restore the mechanicals, rag top, and refinish. New long block, AC, rack n pinon, tie rods, struts, strut towers, racing seats, wheels & tires, alignment, slotted drilled rotors, and pads. Original Stainless exhaust is perfect.
All I can say is I am truly amazed at how well this car handles. It is light car and can transmits large bumps to your body but not nearly as bad as most compacts on the market. I have another Toyota with 285,000 so no concern about getting 150,000 more out of this ride.
Toyota "Oh what a feeling" to keep the "barbie car" in the family."
Cons: "bad acceleration. little wide turning radius"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"160k miles and still running perfect. My dad bought it for me when i was 16 years old. Ive never had any problems out of it. Good for taking on long trips. its just an outstanding car. good to just put the top down and cruse."
"These cars can really drive I've had two of them and loved them dearly If I could find another in great shape for a good price I would have it :-) They are fun to drive and have better gas milage then is stated both of mine got 35hwy and around 25city"
"The Celica All-Trac / GT-Four (ST185) is a road version of world rally winning car that can be driven easily for daily use. Control is excellent, driving position is comfortable, steering is very accurate"
