San Antonio here. We just had a meet on Friday. Too bad you weren't informed to join us!

How many miles on the Celica? How much is the dealer trade-in? (One of my stable collection goals during my lifetime.) I actually told my husband a few weeks ago I want him to cut my hood and modify it to look more like the Celica hoods.

my celica has around 26,000 miles. i blew my engine a while back and ordered a new one for $2000 with great low mileage...i actually havn't taken my celica to the kia dealership..i might sell it to my friend if he comes through for 4G's which isnt bad here in the valley..everybody here is cheap!!

Well.. my bud had a toyota celica that he did a lot of work too. Those cars are very fun to drive, you'll be getting pretty much the same thing, with a few more horses! And a lot of great in-car features! I remember we use to take that thing into the city and everyone would be trying to race him! He had the TRD body kid, with a full greddy racing exhaust and a SRI. Looked and sounded so nice, but you are making a great choice here. I'm a toyota buff myself, and I'm very happy I went to KIA! Goodluck and thanks for what you do for our country!

LOL $4k? A car that can't run within a few hours repair time is never worth more than $500 to me. Take your buddy on his offer while you can!!

I've always been a big toyota fan myself (a little biased as my dad owns a toyota dealership), however once he bought a KIA dealership I just had to try out the Koup. I love it :)
