I spent the day hopping into one, then the other, repeat process. :)

My brother left me his car for the day, I really like the feel of this '83 Celica GTS. The front engine and rear wheel drive is a lot of fun but the driving style is the reverse of the Mid Engine Rear wheel Drive setup.

Wow, that's one amazing looking lotus. Very nice color. As for the 83, that might be the cleanest looking 80s celica I've seen in awhile. The one thing I'm curious about is that it looks like the headlights are pointed to the sky.

So what does a clean 83 celica go for nowadays?

Thanks! This Celica has had only 1 owner. Its been cared for and maintained accordingly.

:) Yes, the headlights tilt forward when in use.
I think it all depends on the condition and mods done to the car. How does it drive? It drives very well. Idles fine, etc...
