In late 04 a massive glacier in Russia collapsed into the sea and the huge wave it formed traveled all the way to Antarctica, and crushed the coast, killing millions of penguins.

They should have just changed the name of the car. I didn't even know about these. They look good.

This is a chance for serious collectors to have a car so rare that there was an offer of $100,000.00 from a collector in Istanbul Turkey.

$10 says it was a Nigeria scam

that's such a ridiculous ebay ad lol...for some strange reason i have a hunch that's not even the actual tsunami...llooks like just a bunch of added badges... because from what i've heard/read about them from before, the seats are supposed to be color keyed along with the wheel and shifter...and the system's supposed to be a panasonic one with a changable faceplate or w/e...like the one from celica org you posted...the ebay one seems to look just like mine, in fact :/ :/ interior wise...

from streetfire.net:

"What's in a name? A wave of bad luck, if you're Toyota. A year ago, the company's Canadian division announced plans to call one of its new models the Celica Tsunami. The car's tag line: "The new wave of bold style." The sporty coupe was even offered in a dark color dubbed "thunder cloud." But shortly after a real tsunami devastated Asia, the company realized it could face a storm of bad publicity. Toyota pulled its Tsunami ads and has quietly changed the car's name to the Celica Sport Package."

haha. reminds me of the classic example of bad naming, the Chevy Nova

The "Tsunami" is the "Action Package" for the 2005. It's just a body kit. Not to mention.. IT COMES WITH A PLASTIC EXHAUST TIP!!! :laugh: They are not rare by any means. I've seen a few here where I live.
