after a long (in my eyes) hiatus from June 2012, finally back on the road





So here is the story of my celica.




so i dont get to ramble on too much, lets start out with the first picture i took of my car back in 2006 when I got her.


the first mod that i did was my JL speakers all around. nothing special. i wasnt too much into the whole 6gc scene until a little bit after.

i then stripped the hub caps and started putting every sticker i found on that car!







then i had finally gotten into the 6gc scene and started to mod her. first things first, a $70 weapon r intake from a fellow member. needless to say i felt badass installing it seeing as how it was my first mod.

after that came exhaust, a nice n\' rare SP1




THEN TRAGEDY STRUCK!
i had thrown a rod and my car was up for about 3months, saddest moment ever!


after all was said and done, i got a new rebuilt block.

the day it was back on the road


this is the first pic i took with my new camera



Then after not having it for a while i wanted to get her gifts, thus leading us into the...
BAD IDEA PHASE







end phase smile.gif


then i put on my XS auto headers the NIGHT before i was leaving for my freshman year of college. ended up rushing and cutting to hastily and had a bad exhaust leak. and a lil bit after put heat wrap on the rad tubes cwm13.gif
also i got one of the limited DCR 3points




then after a month or so, my engine quit on me while cruising around pittsburgh. had to tow it back home to the shop the block was built at in philly. ended up being a bad head gasket. frown.gif



then i just started buying stuff while at school and putting it in

SPENDING PHASE

installing hid\'s in february





most up to date interior shot at night

MATURING PHASE

then she sat for a while, not being modded, she was content




THE SCREW YOU GUYS MY CAR IS FINALLY LOWERED PHASE

props to art for getting me into this scene thumbsup.gif
