The Toyota Celica /ˈsɛlɨkə/ is a sports car which was produced by the Japanese company Toyota from 1970 to 2006. The Celica name was ultimately derived from the Latin word coelica meaning “heavenly” or “celestial”(wikipedia). Beside Toyota Supra, the celicas is also one of the most desired sport car that Toyota has made. Especially with its powerful 3S-GTE engine that many Toyota’s fan wants.
Giovanni’s “Selly” is the 6th generations of Toyota Celica (SS II, 3S-GE, ST 202). Produced between 1993-1999 with 3 different models which is 3-door Liftback, 2-door notchback, and 2-door convertible. This gen also have 5 different engines 1.8 L 7A-FE I4, 2.0 L 3S-FE I4, 2.0 L 3S-GE I4, 2.0 L 3S-GTE I4 turbo, and 2.2 L 5S-FE I4.
This Toyota Celica was first owned by Giovanni’s Grand Father when he was on duty in japan. His grandfather bought this Toyota Celica to be his daily car around japan. After his grand father finished his duty, he imported his Toyota Celica to Indonesia, and finally gave his car to Giovanni, his grand son.
Giovanni who’s a car enthusiast, can’t stand to see his rare Toyota Celica on an OEM condition. So, he personalized his car to be like he want to be. So, first exterior change is on the rolling stock, Enkei RP-01 17×8-9.
After that he lowered the car with Intrax sport kits just to make his car more proper. The major exterior change that giovanni made was a GT-Four Wings, sideskirt, front lips, and finished with electric blue paint by spies hecker on his Toyota Celica. The result is outstanding.
The reasons that Giovanni chose electric blue is because the first color that his grand father had on his Toyota Celica is blue. But Giovanni still want to have a clean and sleek color, so after he discussed with his girlfriend, finally they chose electric blue by Spies Hecker. Surely Giovanni love his car as much as his love to his girfriend , and his memories of this car won’t fade because memories won’t fade. It reflects its true colors from time to time and that’s made his car wonderful.
