Just wondering, what you consider your MKI Or MKII.

Personally I consider it a Supra. To me the Celica was like the 924 or 944 of the porche while the CelicaSupra was like the 928 or the 911.

Your thoughts and reasons.

My 82 has the SUPRA badge not the Celics-Supra badge so it MUST be a Supra.

It is a Celica Supra. The "just" Supra's are 86.5's. I'm proud to be a Celica Supra there's history there.

inline six, rear wheel drive, 2 door toyota. It's a Supra.
I'll drink to that, but I don't mind acknowleding our roots either. Which is maybe why some mk4 owners like to distance themselves from the mk2 crowd (not the wonderful ones we have here though :wink: ), maybe the truth is they don't mind the mk2, they just don't want to be associated with anything with celica dna. I don't mind personally, but the mk2 will always be more supra then celica to me.

I used to think/wish it to be just Supra (mines 82 so it says celica supra). However, now, I like to think of it as Celica Supra. It is the interim, the missing link, the evolution from plain jane Celica to master Toyota supercar. It is a change in momentum from gas sipping econo cars to performance machines. It is...the Celica Supra!

I agree with that too! but, lets not forget that celicas weren't econobox grocery getters in the 70s. They were toyotas premier sports car of the time (and rwd of course), so its not that bad a history. In fact, some of those 70s celicas are damn sexy looking

Just looked at five mk2 Texas vehicle titles and four show "SUP" while one shows "CEL". So I guess among assumably unbiased :| title clerks at the dmv, its four to one for "Supra". :clap:

mine says 'supra' on the badges, and i consider it as such, but i still acknowledge the fact that celicas were/are cool.

i also consider it fun as hell, and a summer only car (bald 245s are scary in winter)

I definately think the celica is a cool car too. I had an 84 gts.

But it was a 4 bangger. The Supra can be classified as its newborn sister. All derived from the celica family. It's name however itn't celica Jr.
It's supra. With the inline 6 8) .

I tend to think of both of my car's as Supra's.

My reasoning: Celica's = 4cyl. Supra = 6cyl. That's how I tend to seperate/diferentiate the 2 of them.

Celica Supra for me tends to be a mouthful (because I'm a lazy ass..).

True the mk2 is offically known as a Celica Supra, but this was due to trade and import embargos at the time. I always refer to my car as a Supra, and it kills me when non-mk2 people call it a Celica... kinda like that feeling when someone claws a chalkboard.
