You Need This: Metallic Brown Toyota Celica

The subject line for this one says it all: Beater with a heater. It’s a usable 1997 Toyota Celica ST with 157,000 on the clock. It looks a lot like one that we had in our fleet back in the day.

Always liked the looks of these cars, just a pity that Toyota never saw fit to really give them any love in the US market.

I've never seen a brown sixth gen before. I like it!

My own fifth gen was and still is a great little car, so now I'm wondering about the newer ones.

Speaking of Celicas, I've seen an explosion of older convertible Celicas on CL all of a sudden. I don't know where they all came from.

I will never willingly own a brown car. That color is just not for me.

Glad I'm not the only one. I looked at it and went "Ummm, that's not brown"

You have to see it in person. Its brown. The wash and sun may be blinding you...

I thought maybe it was going to be the next "Is it black and blue or blue and gold?" thing

Ssshhhhh! I was hoping this would still be around come September. I do keep telling myself sweet deals always show up fairly regularly so good luck in selling the Celica. And I'm also hoping a '98 SE-R is still knocking about then too.

This Celica color is a miracle. You can go a couple of years between washings and never see the dirt.
