thumbsup.gif I think you, Mike, and trdproven have the longest ownership. I'm at a little over 9 years but considering a sale. Many more happy years to you.

Stef (hurley97) has had her 97 for 13-14 years, a few other have had theirs longer.

Your car was an inspiration to our red one (94 w/Beams), that was 8 years ago and still going strong, just needs some love.

well you know a lot of trd parts?? Im not entirely sure if the TRD were an option here in the USA. but how much did they sell for when they were brand new????

i believe only supra and mr2 owners and the few GT4 guys can afford the TRD wheels, ive never seen them here on the forum...

the SS-III cloth seats are cool looking but don't hug much of your body.

was distracted by radio on my way home, a mile away from my place cars stopping, didnt notice and bam smacked into camaro ss @ 25mph

Not sure either what was available over in the US. Looks to me like it was very generic lines - ones that would fit other other models eg oil cap, radiator cap


They were 69,000 Yen new, 616USD in todays conversion. so I assume somewhere around there.
You see the steering wheel randomly on celicas here in nz when they pop up for sale. So some owner must have splashed out while it was in Japan.

Yeah the SS-III seats would just match my celica a bit more with the black/red.


Oh wow, its an honour to know that I've been an inspiration to other owners.


I must get out and do more photos of it soon. Work & life seem to get in the way atm.





Totalled, that was his old red ST from memory, before we bought this current silver GT w/beams swap
