Looking for a car that checks all right '80s boxes? Why not try this 1985 Toyota Celica GT-S on for size? It has pop-up headlights, factory flared fenders, a convertible top and even comes equipped with a manual transmission.

Speaking of convertible tops, a drop-top Celica of this generation is actually somewhat rare as they were all converted by the American Sunroof Company in California, with only 4248 are said to have been built.

So if this '85 GT-S checks off all the right boxes for you, go check it out over on Classic Motorsports now.

These are incredibly cool cars and very fun with a little more oomph. Not great for tall guys because they lock the seat rails from going all the way back so they could fit the roof mechanism in there. I worked on one briefly a few years ago.

I'll be honest, I don't know if they're actual watanabes. He had them powdercoated that really nice bronze. I loved them. Those made me find a rep set of charcoal rotiforms like them for my e30.
