Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.
Continuing the trend of 20th century, largely reliable Toyotas, this week we have the renowned Celica, the original RWD sports car which spawned the Supra line. Over the years, it gradually became based on a FWD economy car chassis, but does that detract or improve its appeal? Whether you call it a Sell-ick-uh (American) or a Sell-eek-uh (British), which generation of this classic Toyota sportster are you drawn to the most?
