I am sure if I focused my money and efforts into just one automobile I could possibly atleast have one nice ride. Anyone else have this problem?

yeah theres kind of an ongoing battle about people saying it cel ih cuh, or cel e ca. i think? let me know if im wrong on this one.

Well this is what I've learnt through the years.

In U.S. I hear mostly pronounced it as:  sell lah kah
In Canada we pronounce it here as:      c lee kah or my username: slee ka

but thats my Canadian opinion.   :heh:

Its true most people say it that way in the US. I believe the proper way is the Japanese way, and they say selleecka. But if we said it that way here in the states people would look at us like we are tards.

Really? Not according to my Japanese wife. They say it the same way us Americans United States people say it, except that the "L" sounds like a mix of L, R and D. I just recorded her saying it on my phone and sent it to my Photobucket, so will upload it here when it comes through.

According to wikipedia there were only 4248 ASC convertible celicas made in 1985, does anyone know how many of these were five speed and how many where automatic? :huh:  I've tried to find out but all research lead to wikipedia

i looked over their site and found no numbers on the '85 Celica, i highly doubt they would have kept records of how many were 5 speed vs. auto as they were an after market company. I do however wonder did Toyota send the cars there directly or was it a dealer thing?

As far as I can tell, Toyota sent them directly over, but I don't know if there were consecutive ser. numbers. I'll know more when I get mine home tomorrow morning and compare #s and dates with Zoomy's. Maybe the dozen or so of us with them here on the forum need to share the last 6 digits of our VINs, or at least mfg dates.

As for manuals and autos, I heard that there were more autos, but I'm not seeing that here on the forum.

I should have been more specific, I was referring to the Japanese commercials on YouTube.

5 speed.  Last 6 of VIN: 055448, MFR 1/85 and 3/85.   F312/W58   Black.

Just noticed that the GVW is 3715 on the ACS sticker.


But you have to remember that all the verts were created from Coupes so they may not be very consecutive.

Just go into wiki and change it to say only one was made, and claim yours is the original.

In short, DO NOT use wiki as a viable reference, anyone can change/add things in it, I know I did one as a joke and it lasted 3 months.
1985 Celipra GT-S (driven by Chris):
6M-GE bored .50 over. 210cc injectors from......not a Toyota! Delta 272 re-grind cams. Carter high-flow fuel pump.
Pacesetter header w/custom 2.5" straight exhaust. Open air intake filter w/3" piping to TB. 65mm TB & ported AFM.
4:10 rear w/disk brakes from Supra. BillyM shifter bushing kit. Swapped most interior over to black. T3 camber plates.
935 Budget Coilover kit. KYB AGX struts. Eibach Sport rear supra springs. T3 Needle bearing upper perches.

for awhile someone had the mk3 supra curb weight set at 5500lbs
85 Celica GT-S LB "Blue"

78 Celica ST coupe "Sleepra"

00 Lexus GS 400

91 Lexus ES 250

88 Celica All-Trac

04 Sequoia (wifes)

Well if the wiki info is accurate then the convertibles are not in sequential order
