Hopefully Brigette and I can bring the GT4 to one of the meets this year along with Skylerís GT4 and this beast. Have all of the AWD cars together at least once.

Dude, I have twice that many lol. I was so scared of the car dropping on me. Aaand I certainly believe you are correct!

A trio of awd celicas at a midwest meet for the first time smile.gif I think that would officially make us the premier celica meet in the US, besides the CSP meet ofcourse.

A comparison would be tons of fun, in fact, make it happen Dan!. I wont really know if I did a good job until the real deal is there to set the benchmark!

And yea in this photo they're disconnected. This was taken a few weekends before driving off. I'm organizing photos at the moment to put together a semi decent build thread. I want to restart the types of updates I used to do on here

That beautiful ST165 will never not count!

I cant believe I forgot the 165!

Smh at myself

This means we have the potential for 4 4wd celicas. Which may just cause an automotive singularity

We won't be able to make the April meet but maybe a summer or fall meet will be a possibility, even though it'll most likely just be us, the doggos, and the 4Runner without any AWD Celicas in tow. We'll just have to live vicariously through the other AWD Celicas that show up.

It's still an AWD Toyota, so that counts for something.
