Ok, well, I'm a first gen guy, first gen celicas is what I'm all about, and for those that kno me from cc.com, you might have guessed that it is inevitable that I would make this thread.

If they have a retro mustang, why not a retro celica? I say it is something that needs to be done, and so I'm here drumming up support for the cause. What do you think? Toyota's too lazy to do it, but it'd be nice!

Wow! You can sure draw really good! How long did it take you to do that. I think that would be awsome on toyotas behalf. I love the first gen celicas!

They should only do a retro celica if they have coupes too. I like the fastback and all, but come on....the coupes are where it's at!

Well, imo, it aint a celica if it aint got a 4 banger. I'd vote for a modern variation of the old 18rg's, but thats really dreaming. Personally though I really am not a fan of v6's. Straight engines the way to go! And the coupe thing has bugged me too, maybe if it was a space frame they could make both cheaply.

I believe the gen 8 celica is going to be going back to basics with design. wait and see.

RA28 GT rocks.

Im going to be the first asshole in this thread.

I hate retro.

Things should PROGRESS not REGRESS..

Fuck the "roots".. The roots were a good starting point but the new stuff is usually faster and better.

I dont liek retro design, I dont like mustangs so I will be the first asshole to say FUCK NO.

Thank you.

Drive through.
