I downgraded from a 2000 Celica GT-S. I consider this a downgrade as what I paid for the car 10 years ago would at least be several thousand dollars more than what I paid in 2012 for the Focus.
This pic is from shortly before I sold it a few weeks ago. Stylistically, the Celica has actually aged pretty well. I loved this car, but the Focus is much more useable (especially with a family now) and handles nearly as well.
Plus the Celica was starting to have a number of issues that weren't worth fixing. To be honest, I miss it much less than I thought I would.
