Out walking during our recent snowy spell, I couldn’t help but notice these two bright orange objects against the white and green. This particular Celica coupe is one of the best designs of the seventies; in a sea of over-wrought cars, especially the Japanese ones of the time, it really stood out then for its clean and elegant lines. And unlike most cars, I’ve never tired of it all these decades later. The guys that Toyota hired back then at its new Calty Studio hit a home run. And this car’s owner is an obvious fan of it too. I guess I’m not the only one.
