What range of mileage would you all think to be acceptable on a 1990 Celica GT-S. Right now i am working on a deal on this car for a very good price, the car is in good mechanical order from what i can tell but it has 270000 Km (170000 miles) on it. How long do Celicas usually go if there well maintained would I be able to get a few years out of it??

It's hard to say how long a car will last but that model celica was built like a tank.  I bought one a few years ago with 124,000 miles on it and now my sister drives it at about 160,000 miles and I haven't had to get anything repaired.  It runs like day I got it.  I wouldn't be suprised if it lasted to 250,000 miles.  Good luck if with your car if you decide to buy, I personally highly recommend it.

yeah i got the same deal on a chevy pickup. the owner thoughtthe engine was about to give out and needed a new one. i bought it for 5,500.00(it was worth 11,000.00) took it home and put new spark plugs, wires, and rotor for the distributer and it ran like a dream. the best part was that he thought it was a v6, but i happily drove off knowing it was a 5.7ltr v8......haha.
