My folks were looking for an economical car with a little bit of fun factor. I steered them toward 94-98 Celica convertibles. They bought a green/tan leather 97 with 67K miles! Nice little car with a 5SFE automatic. Before you flip about the auto remember, it's my parents. Only bummer is the HG is leaking oil and coolant out of one corner. I just got the car delivered today (Daytona to Atlanta) on a car carrier so I can replace the HG. As much as I'd like to drop a 3SGTE, it would defeat the purpose. Probably blow up the trans too.

Very cool car. :bigthumbu :bigthumbu :bigthumbu :bigthumbu

sounds really good, but gotta wonder how the HG went at 63k....oh well things happen I suppose. Hope they enjoy it!
