It's like, how much more brown could this be? and the answer is none. None more brown.

Japanese engineering with American styling. It's like a Big Mac made with wagyu beef.

There is a guy at my work that has Masaratti money, and he drives one of these, and now I see why. He gets out of the brown Celica, in his $500 suit with a smile, every day.

Dang, that is a beautiful body style. I don't care that it's a copy, it's a great combo. Not really sure I like the wider wheel set on it, but it is what it is.

ok..old mechanic here... the losing rev fast phenomenon is due to the lack of a throttle drop delay"valve". there was on the stock carb,a little spring loaded and damped valve that delayed the drop in revs when you let off the throttle. that little valve was used to prevent backfiring and a temporary 'over rich' fuel air condition that would throw off the emission curve and help prevent cat overheating due to said condition. y it also had the added "benefit" of helping to sync the gears on manual transmissions for those not so adept at shifting. you will find that little pain in the butt valve right through to the fuel injection era prior to electronically throttle/idle valve installations on many cars both foreign and domestic. that particular owners installation of the carb featured doesn't have that valve thus the accurate response in throttle management. getting rid of those things were standard fare for those of us who couldn't resist doing anything within our power to sharpen response times and increase,however little, control over the performance of our cars. that and the 'fuck the epa' mentality of us mechanics of the time. needless to say,the cat(s) went too whenever possible. hope that helped.

The LCR in the Glovebox :D Alhough someone who keeps a car like this in this good of condition probably had a Colt snake gun they paid $500 back in the day that is now worth over $3K.

I bet the rev drop off is due to the aftermarket carb. It doesn't have any dashpots like the factory emission stuff to slow the down rev.

Lol Winga Dinga. I'm gonna use that for myself now. And that Toyota is badass, and I don't say that about import brands often

I've always thought the front of the Celica looked more like the Torino GT than Camaro

Rev up your .38 Special Ruger LCR in the glovebox.

That's the crazy thing about cars like this. It doesn't LOOK 42 years old. It doesn't SOUND 42 years old. It doesn't register in your mind clocking in at 42 years old. Hell, the age of the muscle car was around 50 years ago but still only feels to be around 30 years ago. But when you put these next to some other cars from the same period, as you pointed out, while these cars still look decently modern, others present themselves as if they're around the age of grandma after she backed out of the driveway and didn't stop until she hit the neighbor's house 2 streets over.
