Cool Wheels: 1983 Toyota Celica ST

Cars that are born to be driven hard around race tracks or tricky mountain roads (lookin’ at you Nürburgring) need to have certain assets like power, handling, and torsional rigidity. But if you chop the top off that same car, you’ve now got something that is more for cruising and now the vehicular aesthetics are more important than the ratio spacing of the gearbox. Because when you’ve got a soft top, you need cool looking wheels…and this next car delivers in spades. Find this 1983 Toyota Celica ST convertible offered for $8900 in Atlanta, GA via craigslist.
