TOYOTA CELICA RA25 LIFTBACK
Next is the humble Toyota Celica – that is the early models. My parents owned two of these things new and it was always a mystery why the local importer didn’t see fit to bring in the sexy 1600 GTs rather than the cooking versions. That aside, the next shape RA25 liftback is the one that has long-term appeal. There’s more than a hint of Mustang about them and having the bigger two-litre powerplant is a real bonus. Sadly, there really don’t seem to be many left out there. Did the rust kill them? Prices seem to be all over the place, but you’d hope mid twenties would snag a decent manual.
