View Full Version : 1978 Celica GT

08-02-2010, 06:00 AM
Found a '78 GT for sale around my house, Called the guy about it he said it had 165,000 miles on it. It looked great on the outside (as great as a 2nd gen can look) and fantastic on the inside. I then asked how much he was looking for and when he told me I had to hold back the laughter, he said $5200!!!!
He then proceed to tell me that he had offers for less than that but he "knew how much the car was worth", again, I almost couldn't contain the laughter.

Im pretty sure if it came with jessica beil it would still not be worth 5200

They should have jumped straight the first gen to the third gen in terms of styling.

The third gen could have been considered "futuristic" if it were released in 1978.

2nd gen is the ugliest of all celicas. I probably wouldn't have been able to hold back the laughter.

Almost as bad as the guy here selling a 1980 Grand Prix Celica for 2500 with bad wheel bearings and other issues.

I almost bought one for $900 but backed out because of emissions problems. It's not a bad car, sure not the prettiest but I like the interior styling and how it drives. $5200 is just stupid though, good luck. He probably would get $5200 for a first gen, not a second gen.

Yeah that hatch kills the car. 5200 is ridiculous for a 2nd gen.

LOL that reminds me of the 1980 LB I had for a couple months. I never could get over how hideous it was. the ass is so misproportioned to the rest of the car, it reminded me of a hermit crab improvising a used diaper for a shell. I really liked the front end with the quad rectangle lights and low brow hood, it just needed to be a coupe. I must have been wearing my beer goggles when I bought it.

The second gen hatch is one of the ugliest cars ever built, and in my opinion Toyota's ugliest ever.

$5,200 for a clean first gen is a good price. As a second gen, that car better be show room condition with less than five thousand miles on it. But even then...

Oh, the second gen liftback...

You can dress up a turd, but, well it's still a turd.

I would sport a second gen coupe, but not a hatch.
