So not sure what happened to my first post, but it lacked pictures anyways...

Howís it going, new here, and I inherited a 94 Celica ST hatch from my parents. Basically there was a pop as my dad was driving it up a nearby hill, and it started spewing white smoke out the tail pipe. It then sat in their yard for what I can recall is about 5 years. Thatís 5 years of Alaskan winters without moving. Needless to say this car is pretty rough. But, my parents were pretty easy to convince to get rid of the car for the low low cost of a tow dolly 😎. Back in October I did a compression test and if I remember right there was two cylinders with 0 compression... now Iím considering doing a full rebuild or a swap, donít know if Iím super keen on keeping the 7A when thereís so much more fun to be had with this car but stuck on if I should swap it, and if I do what I should swap with, or just rebuild and call it a day. Iím a delivery driver so gas mileage is somewhat of a concern here . What do you guys think? Mind the mess but whatever I decide to do Iím happy to have a new car to join a forum thatís not for another ford biggrin.gif

laugh.gif laugh.gif well at least your dad capped it off.
another thing I would do it take off the front bra and get rid of it right away. Those tend to hold in moisture against the paint and cause damage. and with it being outside all this time isn't too good.

but lemme know if you need any parts. I currently have 3 STs right now and a crap load of parts. Some usable, some not so much lol.
