Overall, Toyotas are great cars. I think Celicas are a very good example of a nice import as well. However, I think you should be a little more specific- the Celica has been around since the 1970's! I'm assuming you want a newer model, in which case you are looking at a pretty decent car. The first type of Celica I would choose, although older, is the early 90's GT four. It sports a 3SGTE and AWD. The 3SGTE is a great engine (my MR2 has one), it's 200hp and 200 lb/ft at pretty low RPMs. These cars are very rare, but they can be found- there's one in my area for sale right now for $5000.
Anyway, the newer Celicas- 99, 2000-on have VERY good aftermarket support- you can change pretty much anything you would want, including adding a turbo, etc. The only real downfall, which is just a personal opinion of mine, is that Celicas (besides the GTfour) are FWD. I've driven a 2001 Celica GT-S, and wasn't very impressed with it's acceleration or speed, although I thought the handling was pretty good. Of course, you are headed in the right direction- away from Hondas!! :)
