Celica spotted on TV...
« on: Oct 07, 2018, 05:15:13 pm »
So, was watching The Goldbergs S06E02 "You Got Zuko'd", an 82/83 Celica was used in a few scenes in a mock drag race. Well until they flashed to a gas gauge that wasn't from the Celica.

Whoa. 80s show and a Celica shows up. Whodathunkit. Still weird though.  :heh:

Do we even have a thread of our cars that appear in TV shows?

How cool! There's no thread that I know of, but an external website dedicated to it:

Edit: since you had me curious about this drag race...

Yeah, that's why I said "mock" drag race.  :heh:
