The Toyota Celica was produced until 2006. This is the 1995-1999 model.

History of the Toyota Celica

Over the years, Toyota has made quite a few exciting vehicles. From the Prius to the RAV4, Toyota has always and continues to focus on efficiency, functionality and affordability. It is also fun to look back on prior Toyota models to see how far the brand has come in terms of design and quality.
