I wouldn't go as far as to say that a Celica would drive like a "grown-up
MGB".  I would say that I have owned two Toyotas.  I had the first one, a
'72 Corrona, for over ten years and 120,000.  The only reason I got rid of
it was that a plumbing truck failed to stop behind me.  I replaced it with
an '82 Corrola.  My daughter still drives it at 200,000+ miles.  Just put
some new stereo speakers in it last night.  It just past emissions testing
with nothing but an oil change and a new air filter.  Except for a couple of
alternators, clutches, brakes, and a water pump, it has run perfectly for 13
years as a daily driver.  So, on the basis of long life and reliability, it
is hard to imagine anything better.
