Default How many miles do you have on your 5th gen?

It was hard to search for a thread using these key words, so I apologize if this has been done before (and even so, maybe there are new members now!).

I have seen a lot of 5th gen Celica's with over 200k on them, and I'm growing closer myself. Where is everyone else at?

Model Year: 1992
Trim: ST Coupe
Engine: 4A-FE
Odometer: 189,000 miles
History: Bought the car 8 years ago and it had 123,000 on it. It's never once died on me except for dead batteries. Super reliable car. My friends tease me all the time about when I am going to ditch it and get a new ride. I'm going for 200k, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to make it.

Default My Baby

Model Year: 1992
Trim: GT
Engine: 5sfe
Odometer: 183,5xx
History: My dad got this car at his job cheap. The car looked bad, the transmission was done his boss though it wasn't worth the money to fix it up. My old man didn't agree and he fixed the tranny, cleaned it up and it was good to go. Used the car as a commuter for work for 2 years. Then when I got into UW I sold my car and took over this bad boy. At first I Hated it but this car has something about it that no other car has...no to long afterwards I loved it and began Moding it. Now I ab..so..tutlly love my car and im not giving it up...more power soon....


Here is a pic from couple weeks ago...she's a cutie

Model: Toyota Celica GT
Year: 1990
Color: White
Engine: 2.2L 5 speed
Mileage: 156,900

I had this car for just 2 weeks and its in very good condition. Already drove 300 miles on it and this baby is a gas saver. I put $20 gas on the tank which is 5 gallons and it will run as much as 130-140 miles. I love this car so much.

I bought this bad boi just last year. I'm fixing this neglected super car to its original performance and then upgrading it, and proving to all my friends this is one of the sickest cars out there.

Hey guys i'm new to the forum. I have a 92 GT with over 208,000 I do have some problems, the oil light starts flashing when I drive it for a while. I check the oil it's full and I just did a tune up to it. Also it shakes a little bit and has an exhaust leak. But I still love it.

I'm surprised at how low the odometer is on some of these! These are 20 year old cars for the most part.

PiroGT: Nice Celica... I had been wanting to see a closer picture then was in your avatar. It's too bad you have to have a license plate on the front -- in my state we only need the rear.

richard.roxas19: Welcome to the club. Plenty of life left in that '90 GT! People are real helpful here on this forum, so be sure to stick around.
