I'm not sure about the whole life thing. You have to consider the consumption of oil relative to the amount of natural resources left to harvest. Then there's the whole idea of if the 6GC will become a ancient fossil like the Datsuns, mk1 supras/celicas/corollas. They are in a league of their own.

I'm still driving 7 going on 8 years strong with my ST. 7 years of abuse with proper maintenance and it finally gave in. Now in the process of saving up for a swap. I definitely have Toyota pride and favored to the 6gc.

When SH*T hits the fan most of you will try to sell your car when cost of repairs will outweigh what the car can is worth to you. Longest member owning a celica here have had it for about 12 years I think. Most celicas (non GT-4 here in usa) seem to be trading hands at least 2-3 times in their life time so while you may be staying with a celica.. it may not be the car you are driving right now.

I am on my 4th and hopefully final 6gc celica right now and being grown up sucks.. you need practical cars when you are older. Unfortunately.

Here's the way I look at it. Its jus my opinion tho. Dnt hate on me or bash me bc everyone has their own opinion. Some ppl will move on and do lose interest. That's to be expected. However there may be some ppl who wnt move on and who may get another car but it doesn't mean they will up nd leave their 6gc in the dust. Some ppl may get new cars and park their 6gc nd use it like older ppl with old cars. It may become a weekend/show car. This car may be some of the members dream car. The only car they've ever wanted. If I ever aquired my dream car I wouldn't lose interest in it or sell it unless absolutely necessary. Everyone has a different view on this and there will never be a center point. Ppl come and go and some ppl seem to be around longer than you can remember. I am looking to buy another car currently but that just to use as a dd so I can park my 6gc nd not beat on it as much
Keiri
I'd like to join this list but I know better than to delude myself into thinking I'll always have my 6GC. Don't get me wrong - I love this car, I've wanted one for the better part of 10 years, and now that I have it I'm completely enamored with it BUT I am already looking at the future and hoping to purchase a 2012 FT-86 (come on 8th Gen. Celica wink.gif ).

I won't sell the 6GC - it'll be the DD while the 8GC will be the weekend vehicle...at least until kids arrive and then it's bye bye Suzuka.

The inspiration for the FT-86 is the AE86 Corolla but we all know with the positioning of the Corolla in Toyota's current lineup the production 86 will most assuredly not be a Corolla. It has a better chance of being a Celica (since that marque is currently unused and could use a rebirth) or a new Scion tC than a Corolla. Trust me, I know the difference between the two platforms and it seems more likely it'll wind up not sporting the Corolla name it drew inspiration from.

@ Eastern, Swiss:

I know, I know...crybabies. tongue.gif And if you want new posts give me a couple more months and I'll start my build journal...

I will kill someone if that FT-86 becomes a tC.

For me, the 6GC has always been my favorite car. The looks of it, are just perfect. I've wanted one for the longest time, but could never afford it in my younger years. I'm not old as dirt, nor am I under 25, so I guess i'm in the nuetral area there. I plan on keeping mine forever to be honest. I cannot forsee me needing to sell it, or losing interest. I'm not a car enthusiast, i'm a 6th generation celica enthusiast, I have no desire to work on other cars. Celica has, and will always be my dream car. I'm also not rushing the process, I'm enjoying everystage of upgrade, mod, or repair. When its all finally done, and they way I want it, I'll never get tired of seeing people go



when you drive by

If children pop up one day, then of course i'll make due and purchase a family vehicle, but the Celica is not going anywhere.

Nor can the woman make me sell it, hopefully she doesn't read this, but if she forced me to choose between her and the car, it'd be the car for making me choose.

Yes, it counts, broham. Mine is not running either and won't be for many more months. tongue.gif I have spent more than what the car is worth, too, little by little. Hell, since January, I have spent half what I bought the car for with the 3S-GTE swap and I still need more things, so by the time I finish it with paint and everything ($4,000 on paint but it's a show-quality paint job) so it would be stupid to sell it and lose all that money. It's a mental thing. The car is worth it to me. The Celica doesn't bother me in my garage. It'll never be a hassle to own. It's dead reliable even when it was turbocharged. Whatever broke was a stupid piston or something inexpensive. I just put gas in the car and change the oil. It's paid for. Selling it just because I'm getting older ot it's inpractical is stupid. IMHO, the only people that sell cars because they're impractical are married guys who have no balls and do whatever the fat wifey tells them to do. laugh.gif

If you call the Celica impractical, you turned your manhood in when you got married. It's a little car with great gas mileage and awesome looks for its age. A great toy to have. People like you are who make the Celica lose its value.
Get another car and keep the Celica. Do what you want. Damn, this was a long-winded post.

And I'm with Dan too, I've spent probably more than 3x the value of the car so pretty much don't have a choice but to keep it.

They are going to bury me in my Celica, or I will bury myself using my Celica biggrin.gif
