I can't find the original thread for some reason, but I wanted to share a 6gc sighting from Top Gear with you all:



It's kind of small (photobucket resizes automatically), but you can see a blue 6th gen in Season 13, episode 2 when they are looking for nice "sporty" cars that are well suited for a teens first car.

Was actually going to make a thread about that sighting in that episode of Top Gear but couldn't capture the image. It's quite funny cause they had a budget of 3000 pounds to buy a teenagers car and they could've easily bought a GT4 Celica and beat the challenge but they didn't. Still it was a funny episode.

Well, they still needed money left for insurance and "mods" lol. Plus, did you see how much they trashed those cars? I'd hope no one would try to destroy a gt-4 like that.

bio-dome lol

I noticed it when I saw the episode as well, just didn't think of how to post it. They should've bought that though, loads better than a Volvo or that Hyundai, and most likely that Vdub.
pittfirefighter
bio-dome is by far the best spotting... it even does a peel out smile.gif

There is a black 6gc hatchback in an episode of George lopez. Its the episode where the daughter is called a whore by all her schoolmates, the 6gc is in the "fight" scene. biggrin.gif
SwissFerdi
I've seen a black hatch in Scrubs, not sure about the year. Carla yelled something and the whole surrounding area near the hospital stopped to listen. It shows a scene with stopped traffic and there's a 6GC a few cars back.

haha i remember watching that episode and screamed out CELICA CELICA!!!! and my sisters were like, "who cares, its just a stupid car." and at that i wept and called them a bodily function/action, it was a depressing moment

And then you got the real GT4 on top gear 15 years ago and they compared it to the Ford Cosworth and Jeremy being the big Ford fan prefered the Ford to the GT4.

I've seen that video before... I have respect for the Cosworth Escort (not much, but there's a little there) but the GT4 is a hundred times the car that the Escort is in my opinion. If nothing else, just for the curb appeal.

Both cars are pretty comparable, since they both are AWD, same horsepower and pretty much the same weight. It's all about asthetics...and dependability wink.gif (woot Toyotas!)

Someone find that video with audio, please...

Actually dude he almost begrudgingly has to admit that the Celica is slightly better but then he says he doesn't like the overall package as much [which is largely subjective anyway] - it's a good watch.
I can't find it with audio tho kindasad.gif

VICTORY!

It wasn't too bad actually, Expected worse.

We all know what he thinks about Toyota & Japs in general.

If any of you are gamer nerds you may have seen an internet show called pure pwnage.
I was re watching one of the episodes one time and I saw basically MY car in the back xD. I was like whoa! I'll try to find the episode/pic

Ohh yeah I used to watch PurePwnage all the time, which episode was that in?

and as for the old Top Gear road test, Jeremy was quite fair with the st205 actually, he actually liked it, just like he says, hes tall and couldnt fit in the Celica, and the ford is cheaper, thats why he preferred it. I think he likes Celicas actually lol, I also remember him commenting on the 7th Gen Celica once too saying he drove it and its a good car.
nics
Hmm i remember seeing a blue 6gc in Betty La Fea
richee3
My driver's ed book back in high school had a 6gc gauge cluster on the cover and was loaded with pictures of a Celica. I always acknowledged it but never thought I'd own one tongue.gif

uhh ya the gt-four is quality made and more reliable. no wonder why its going to be to cost more!! screw taking the cosworth. He said it was too small. I'm 19 years old and weight 155 lbs at 6 feet tall. the celica is not small, its average

ahhh I finally found it after digging for a long time through old files.

I'm not quite sure which episode it's in but here's the pic.

I think it might be when they're having the party and doug's asking why kyle left in such a hurry after nerdraging.

Bringing this up from the dead.
Spotted a facelifted convertable in season 3 episode 7 of Bloodline last night. Kinda surprised me to see it in a current tv show. I guess they wanted an affordable car that looked good
