Don't be a hater, Viking. You just KNOW dude gets the ladies with that rig. You probably wish you had it so you could pick up a boatload of honeys, take them back to your crib to watch you play WoW, and teach them how to appreciate mint Star Wars action figures in their original packaging.

Seriously, to each his own, and better him than me. I just wish I had half the coin he has invested in that ride.

The majority of members on this site will agree that its ugly. I too agree with the to each his own philosophy, but thats an ugly paint job.

I don't need to pick up chicks. I already have a hot girlfriend that plays racing games with me on occasion.

I was being facetious.

It is ugly, in my opinion, but that is all it is, my opinion.

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!! The ultimate nerd car! It looks really good, if you are really into lotr...and like spending a lot of money to let people know that you like lotr.

I'm thinking of airbrushing my black celica with a Star Wars theme.

Maybe you could find a BOV that sounds like the Darth Vader re-breather, and roll around playing "March of the Empire" on your stereo, just to maintain the theme.

The Star Wars theme is a throw back to a classic Celica though, any true Celica fan knows about the Star Wars Celica.

The LoTR paint is top notch, I just don't think I could sport that on my car.

For sure Murg^

Obviously great craftsmanship....but I'd never rock that in a million years.

Star Wars Celica is classic in it of itself

^Most definitely!

At the same time that it would be the first thing most people would change, it also would be hard to do (for some) because of all of the work involved with that.


Ugly, yes. Cheap? Hell no.

i agree, that thing is a pos..... and a waste of money..... we should go scrape off all that ungly paint job, or show that person pics of all your guys' celicas to show him what a REAL celi looks like.....

my wife is the same lol!

Yeah, it's kind of weird, but I can appreciate the amount of work and $ that went into it. To be honest, If the paint were different, it would be really nice. To each his own, all Im saying is if that is what the owner likes and what he wanted, it is good in my book. Nothing is done poorly or messily, just a little different in the graphix department.

i would have to say that even though its done correctly....WHY???!!!! that looks like the cars that you made on need for speed underground when you were 14......i mean honestly why would you do that.....why do you think that cars come from the factory without graphics?, because its a classy look and it always will be...the clean look is the way to go...it never gets old. a nice clean paint job with a nice set of rims...thats the way to go.

I don't like the job myself, but not because it looks bad. It looks pretty damn nice, I just don't like LoTR. That doesn't make it look ugly though.

I saw a 4th gen GTS today that a wing and fart can on it. He was at the stop light next to me and revved his engine.

I laughed...lol.

Poor Celica though. Without the wing it would have been a decent car.

I actually like it. Lol, however you have to consider i'm a Visual Communications/Graphic design major at college. So to me this is relaying a message more than it is sporting the car. The guy is obviously a LoTR fan and he likes his celica. I've got no problem with it. If someone gave it to me I'd drive it in a heartbeat. Simply because it would be free. Would I invest the time or money to do this? No. Themed cars are an awesome way of advertising for any one. This one just happens to spin LoTR. :)
