Is an mk7 Toyota Celica an easy car to work on?

I found a 2000 Toyota Celica in great condition for a good price. It's gonna be my first project car. Is it good to learn on?

    If a Ford Falcon is algebra, the Celica is differential Calculus. You will learn a lot on that project. You could pick an easier car to work on. Look in the Chilton's manual at the valve train, then decide if you're up to it.

    They are fairly easy to on. However, the 2000 Celica had either the 1ZZFE (140 hp in the GT) or 2ZZGE engine (180 hp in GT-S). The 3SGE hadn't been used since the late 80's and only in the GT-S; The 5S-FE (not 5S-GE) was discontinued after 1999. The 2000 Celicas actually had a smaller engine than the older ones,using engines from the Corolla vs. older ones sharing engines with the Camry (and MR2). Still, they are still fairly easy to work on.
