In 1998, I bought a Toyota Celica (sports car). I just loved driving this car and look forward to another Celica some day.
I paid $1000 for it. It was 17 years old and full of rust. The oil pressure always seemed low, and eventually the motor started failing. I got six years out of this vehicle. I got the sports car feel, but never had to worry about someone dinging it up in a parking lot. My clients or employer never saw what I was driving.
