I don't sit in the back either and with the gtv there's no room for the shopping to throw it's self all over the boot unlike the celica.

I think there are a few of us Happy Man. I won't say anything against them as it was my first sports car and I loved that kick you got as the 190hp cut in at 6500 revs.

But everything on the Celica was, well, just right and as expected and, well, japanese. The GT sounds better, takes more driving and always makes me feel like I won the lottery - can't beat it

Re: reformed celica driver!!

Not saying there was anything wrong with the Celica it was just wrong for me
I traded a TS GTV for it and realised it was the wrong move within a week never had the 190bhp just a standard.
For me it just had no soul might sound daft but at the time the ad for the Brera was running and the line "when it's gone we miss it" nearly had me in tears. Still got me baby now just love alfas

I know wexactly what you mean about soul Happy Man - but if you get a chance to try the 190hp Celica, have a go - it will bring a smile to your face
