Hello, my name is Toua Vang, I currently live in MN and have always been a Toyota my whole life.
As some of you know I bought snapshotgt's 1MZ Celica roughly about a year ago.

UPDATE: Photos went to crap after Photobucket for so long, so I deleted most of them except the recent one's (of 6/28/17). IMGUR all the way!

The story of acquiring the car:
After my 5GC GTS and my 20V AE102G, I was in the market for something unique (that's Toyota).
I had a pet peev about rust, so to find a rust free car meant travelling out of MN cause most of them are usually RUSTY.
Long story short, I almost flew out to the East coast (MA) for a 2nd gen 3sgte 5GC OR a 4th gen 3sgte CAMRY ALL-TRAC.
I DID fly out to the West coast (CA) and almost bought a 5GC GTS but the guy (honest mistake) lied about it being a manual.
Then I finally went to the southcoast (TX) to get Colin's 1MZ 6GC. 18 hour drive home and my very first ticket (speeding); totally worth it.

Once I got it back to the states I immediately put on my brother's spacers (20mm front, 25mm rear) so the 7GC GTS wheels sits more flush.
Rode it like that from Spring to Fall, then stored it in the Winter. Now that Spring is back around I got to doing some changes to the car.
Sadly though I don't have all the images as my old phone had them and it died on me; but I have some photos here and there.

What I have done so far:
Audio system: I like music, and my brothers had an unused sub and amp so I installed that.
New intake filter: I decided to keep K&N, but w/ a more coned shaped filter than cylindrical. I did clean the old one and still have it just in case.
Euro riser blocks: I didn't want the GT4 cause it looked too high for my liking, but I definitely like the height of the euro versions.
Wheels ant tires: I ended up fixing my brother's 5zigen FNO1R-C (much curb and salt rash), painting them, and getting new tires.
