<font color='#FF0000'>:down:
i dont know if anyone has been reading motortrend magazine, but it has been reported that 2005 will be the last year that the Toyota Celica will be Imported and Sold in the US, they compare it to the Honda Prelude, which ended its production ahwile back their problem is that noone is buying any celicas anymore, even worse, the car they are replacing it with, and they are saying it is just like the celica is the 2005 Scion XB. I dont know if anyone is as down or pissed as i am, but it is a major downfall for the automobile industry...

Celica....you will be missed....

<font color='#8D38C9'>At least for us 7th genners, it'll be cool to have the last gen of celi sold in the US... but the rumors are the 8th gen (to be sold in europe and asia only) are going to be one of the nicest celi's performance-wise, so it'll suck to not have that potential here...  :(</font>

<font color='#000000'>We stayed in Bandon, which is located on Hwy 42S & 101, and our room looked out right over the ocean and beach. We had a great view of Face Rock and there were sea lions right down the beach from us... not to mention the great sea food! oh man, I was lovin' the prawns, bread bowls w/ clam chowder and everything else *drooool*  :p

man, being back at work sucks!  :down:</font>

<font color='#000000'>I was under the impression they were going to redesign the Celica and bring it back in a few years.  They are bringing back the Supra, right?  Even if not, at least we have the best the US has to offer.  Why would anyone want to be known for the Carolla, Camry, and 4-Runner?  Such squares... :(</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>CelicaFan: Hey I'm glad you had a great time up there... it sounded nice


Hornet:  I dunno, they might do it in like 10-15 years, but not right away.  We all understood that the 8th gen will only be released in Asia only, probably Europe too.</font>

<font color='#000000'>nothing lasts forever  :down:
but hey i'm glad i have my Celi for long long time (i hope)

maybe Toyota replaces Celica with its Volta model which is concept now... was presented in Genéve carshow, oh well maybe thats just dreaming but it surely looks nice. another thing is that will it ever be sold

i see way too much corolla and avensis models around here.. oh so boring.</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>Hornet:  Yeah, toyotas are tough cars


Jaz:  Yeah we have too many Corollas and Camry's here.  Here in the US they will be replacing the Celica with the Scion... maybe they renamed it the Volta over in europe?
o:  Sometimes they have the same cars in different places but name it differently to make up for the language difference.</font>

<font color='#000080'>Does anyone know the actual measurements of this car?  It looks longer than the Celis, more like the length of a Vette or NSX.  Maybe it's just the angle of the picture, though?  I like the Celis b/c they have a "zoom-y" quality  :)</font>
