Hemmings.com claims to be the world's largest collector-car marketplace. Yesterday they put out a public service announcement on behalf of the Official Star Wars Blog. Lucasfilm is trying to locate a rather unusual 1977 model Toyota Celica which was awarded to someone (no-one knows who) in a promotional giveaway. From the Official Star Wars Blog:
The Star Wars Celica was designed by Delphi Auto Design in Costa Mesa, California, and awarded sometime after the end of 1977, probably in January 1978. While the sweepstakes were a joint venture hosted by Toyota and Twentieth Century Fox, the awarding dealership remains a mystery, as does the identity of the winner and the vehicle’s VIN number.
Lucasfilm provides no explanation for why it wants the car. I expect GL wants to modify it in various small but annoying ways. The airbrushed Chewbacca on the hood doesn't blink, for instance. On second thought, if you do have the car, do us all a favour and hide it.
