1979 Toyota Celica GT Liftback

The new Celica, introduced in 1978, replaced the popular and classic 1st generation. Like the earlier cars, the new Celica was available as a notchback coupe or the Liftback. Early cars, like this one, are easily identifiable by their round headlights; later cars gained square lights. These second-gen cars were designed in the US, and it shows--they're a lot larger than the previous cars, and the overall styling is fatter and boxier.

  1. I personally think that these cars were big sellers, this is just from my recollection. I also noticed that these cars disappeared quite fast as well--by the late 80s early 90s they were mostly gone over here in NY/NJ
