This next car came in with so much potential. It comes with a description of being an all-wheel-drive Toyota All-Trac Camry and then you stumbled upon a photo shows an LS1 engine mounted longitudinally in a similarly hearing aid beige car. Unfortunately, that photo is from another listing, and this Camry has some kind of […]
If someone asks you to name an all-wheel-drive Japanese modern classic with a manual gearbox, most people start listings things from the Subaru, Mitsubishi, or Nissan…but the truth is that Toyota probably built more all-wheel-drive cars than any of those specialty makers, mainly because they built a bazillian cars over the years. Today’s example is […]
The ST185 generation Toyota Celica All-Trac was known as the “Super Round shape” version of the high performance version of Toyota’s liftback Celica (1989-1993). It combined a turbocharged 4-cylinder 3S-GTE engine with all-wheel-drive and a 5-speed manual gearbox. With 200 horsepower in the USA version, it won’t be the fastest car you’ve ever driven, but it is a part of Toyota’s rally history and will be a desirable classic someday…if it isn’t already.

The seller of this next vehicle describes it as “museum condition” which might be a bit of a stretch, because I doubt any museum would want an 80s Toyota Wagon…but now that I think about it, there was a Toyota museum next to the North American Torrance, CA headquarters that was filled with all manner of original Toyotas before they moved it to Texas and the Toyota Museum in Japan is filled with all sorts of strange stuff, so perhaps this does belong in a museum, but I’d like to use it to haul my kids around for a few hundred thousand miles first.

I love it when someone calls some car “the nicest around” because it often is such a stretch from the truth. And I won’t give the hyperbolists in the room a free pass with this next car, I’ll at the most admit that it looks like a blast to own/drive. Find this 1990 Toyota Celica All-Trac […]
The fifth generation Toyota Celia was released for the 1990 model year with all new “Super Round” organic styling and further refinement on the rock solid build quality that was beginning to be synonymous with the word Toyota. It wasn’t an exciting car by any yardstick, but the GT-Four version (All-Trac in the US) added […]
The All-Trac name was used by Toyota on the Camry, Corolla, Previa, Celica, Rav4, & Caldina to designate their full-time symmetric four wheel drive system. For most of the fleet it was designed to help sell cars in snow-bound places, but for one car it was an attempt to sportify the car. Find this 1990 Toyota […]

It never fails…I find an interesting example of a car, write it up…and another, slightly better example, pops up. The previously featured ST165 generation Celica wasn’t a bad example, but it did have aftermarket wheels, a minor engine change, and was NOT one of the rare IMSA GTO Champion versions. Find this 1988 Toyota Celica […]
