Thanks to Pep Boys for sponsoring this episode! #pepbros4life

The Toyota Celica was one of Toyota’s first sports cars, spurring every one of their competitors to follow suit, so igniting the Japan sport coupe war. From the pony car inspired first generation to the rally-dominating Celica GT-Four, and the sporty as ever Celica GT, this car has done it all. Join James as he explores the highly requested Toyota Celica!

Up to Speed is a weekly automotive history show about the best cars, brands, designers, drivers and influencers ever. Host James Pumphrey covers everything from the Toyota Supra to the Chevy El Camino, The VW GTI to the Subaru WRX. The origins of every car will be uncovered to get you Up to Speed..

      I would not be surprised if that Civic's battery died because the lights were on the whole time

      I'm not even a Honda fan. But listening to him talk about Honda's makes me like them. But then the episode ends and I'm back to being a rotary fanboy.

      I bought my first car 2 years ago. It was a 1999 Celica SX-R (Same gen as the GTFOUR). It was absolutely fantastic, it drove like a dream. It had done 220k Kms and had been sitting in a paddock for 4 years, yet was still mechanically perfect! I loved that car so much. I sold it 3 months ago when I bought my 2013 Toyota 86 GTS, yet I still miss it

      That’s largely a myth. The 1st gen Lift bolts were recalled and should be changed for free by Toyota and if you intend to run to redline constantly it would be good to replace the oil pump and be sure the fuel system is clean and balanced.
      It is a high performance engine.
      The 3S-GTE, however, is a beast and beyond reproach. I own one in each of my 1990 MR2T and my 1994 GT4

      @Neg Ative true performance wise they are better , but isnt the 2zz-ge suffering reliability issues?

      2ZZ-GE is far better. 3S-GTE is the best - by a lot.
