Japanese Pony: 1980 Toyota Celica GT

The Toyota Celica first hit US shores in 1971 as the Japanese translation of the Ponycar.  In 1976 Toyota introduced a Fastback version which borrowed styling cues from the late 60s  Ford Mustang.  While the first series Celicas certainly borrowed heavily from US styling cues, some might argue that the second generation Celica’s (which were penned in the US and carried the model from 1978-1981) began striking their own pose, before the 1982’s headed off in a much more unique and angular look.
