i've always been an admirer of this gen celica and toyotas in general. i have a 91 turbo mr2 and after selling my 93 alltrac i thought another daily would be nice. i dont really know much about the 5s motor. but after some research and about a half year of looking for a 6gc i finally found one.so last friday and made the couple hundred mile trip from houston to austin and back to bring it home. its a black 94 GT hatchback. the car had been in storage for 2 years but after a battery change and a fresh tank of gas it started right up and made it all the way home without a hickup. My primary purpose for the celica is to have a comfortable, sporty looking and reliable car i enjoy driving. thus far i'm not dissapointd its smoother and quieter than any of my previous vehicles, plus more fuel efficent and after the tune up i can determine nothing wrong with the motor.


i've talkd to many on the forums while searching for my car and options for it, and am glad to have found a place where so many enthusiasts are willing to offer their advice and share their knowledge.like many others here i wanted to start cataloging my progress. both to se how far my car has come and to try and offer something back to the community

so thanks to everyone who has helped me out. feel free to comment or offer suggestions and pics and writeups of my progress will be coming soon

peace

couple of quick pics in the 1st post

mostly i plan on modding in such a way that leaves it a comfortable daily. so no drop or exhaust. but from what i've learned thus far from my projct cars i can do any modding untill the car has been maintained properly. so last night was an oil change, new cap,plug and wires, flushing some fluids, an exhaustive search for leaks(found none thumbsup.gif ) and worn suspension components. then the mechanical issues i knew about from the previous owner were the radio didnt work and the pass window regulator is broken. and some problems with the paint


so this morning i'm happy to say maintnance is done and a log has been started. replaced the regulator and the window has full function and the radio now has been replaced.



as far as what mods i have lined up. i'de like to take it one step at a time. new steering wheel this month. and with a little help from jim middle of next month i'll start addressing the exterior with some new body pannels, and a repaint

-peace
