Speed Hero, Search for the missing Star Wars Celica
Hey there folks. There's thousands of blog posts, articles posted online highlighting the idea that at some point, somewhere, a Star Wars themed 1977 Toyota Celica GT existed. Sadly almost all of these articles are regurgitation of the same few clues over and over. I've been doing some preliminary research into finding this car once, and for all.

The Soft Switch
There are a few people who care about much about their shampoo. You go to the store, pick something you like the smell of at a decent price.

Atomic 50's American dreams of the future of Jet Set motoring, flashy shapes, classy speed, glamorous. We missed it. You did too, you're just as much to blame as me, though I couldn't afford it persay, but at only $18,000 brand new, it wasn't out of the reach of most of the modern world.

Guess that Badge!
Here's one that should have you ultra nerds excited you know, or perhaps I've stumped you all. Don't name the car, NAME THE BRAND OF THE BADGE.
