    Default Thinking of getting rid of the celica...

    Okay well I took my car up to the mountains and on the way back the oil light came on. I checked the oil level and it was at the Low mark. I keep driving since I was only a few blocks away from home... then the things starts knocking. I put in thicker old and the engine appears to be knocking louder. I think the engine is on it's way out. What can I do? Rebuild?

    The thing about this car is that it's an automatic and the tranny is also going bad. It doesn't shift properly anymore. I figured I might just sell it and get a different toyota car...

    I was thinking more of the '70-'84 RWD celica or the celica supras.

    How much should I ask for my celica? It's a 1990 Celica GTS, Black, 148k miles, Moonroof, leather, tape player, and stock rims are sprayed gold. I was thinking about $2000.

    Your seting your expectations a little high for the condition the car is in. youll get $1,000 at most if your lucky. the RWD Celi and the Celi Supra are verry fun project cars from what ive heard and read but it will be a lot of time and money to invest so i would look for a daily driver somthing cheap with good MPG.
