Long story short. A kid was going to trash this 1987 Celica GTS just because the passenger axle was shot and the drivers side knuckle assembly was missing. So I paid junk price at $350 and towed it home. Here's how it sits for now. It's getting worked on slowly and eventually it'll be back on the road. As for plans for now. Is to make it run and see if my lil bro wants it. If he doesn't then I'm going to make this my function car and maybe AutoX it for fun. My st162.net screen name is iLoveMyDirtBag87.

Those Celica's are awesome. Pops had one back when I was growing up and I always thought it was really comfortable and a really cool looking ride. Actually it was because of his Celica that I wanted one, although I thought the 6gc was more my pace smile.gif

Yeap. These were the first FWD and 3sge powered Celicas. Lol. I always wanted a 4th gen but an all trac. Which are hard to find. Plus this was for dirt cheap and it had the first rev 3sge so why not? Right? Lol. As of right now I'm still waiting on parts to come in.....then tune up.....then SMOG....then register. Lol.

If it was the prettier 5th gen and rust free I'd have to heavily consider it.

Well......I finally had the chance to tear the front suspension apart to find some damage. The previous owner was really lucky the drivers side wheel didn't fly off. When I took off the axle nut the whole hub fell off by itself along with the ball bearings.....Also the passenger side cv axle wasn't even locked in the transmission and the bracket bolts were missing.....so yea. Call the previous owner lucky.

The 4th gen is all blocky though, the 5th gen is all rounded and curvy. Curves are good. tongue.gif
