1977 Celica GT grill

Yeah, I also have one of those "pieces of history" for sale. Too bad it's apparently not worth much :(

You're selling the '77 Celica? Well, it must be worth a lot to the right person. It's a classic.

^ I believe Hiko is referring to just the grill

:hehe: Yeah, I was just referring to the grill.

But the 1st gens themselves are not worth too much either. Unless you are dealing with a well modified 1st gen, or someone who's nuts, 1st gens usually go for between free and $1500. I picked mine up for $900 taxed and everything.

That's really disappointing that the first gen isn't worth much on the market- but maybe it's just the American market, where the buyers haven't the proper respect or taste for vintage Japanese automobiles.

I wonder what your first gen would fetch in the UK, Europe, Australia, or Japan.

Actually, they're picking a little steam in the classic cars arena. I read an article about a guy a few months ago that paid $2X,XXX for a first year that had like 34kmiles on it. Hang on to 'em, they're comin' around.

Wohooo!

Holy crap, does that mean we all might have some equity in our Celicas? Wouldn't that be something...

That reminds me that Jay Lenno commented on the same thing. It was a while back, on that Speed channel program with the one classic cars dude with the handlebars-mustache. You know the one I'm talking about?

Anyway, Leno takes the mustachioed host for a drive in a classic mazda rotary. Not sure which generation, but it must have been an early 50s model. European styled. Very small. Leno told the host something like "the Japanese cars are just starting to become classics."
