Hello, my name is Toua Vang, I currently live in MN and have always been a Toyota my whole life.
Some of you know this car from before as this was previously snapshotgt's Celica.

The story of acquiring the car:
After my 5GC GTS and my S/T 20V AE102G, I was in the market for something unique (that's Toyota) and rust free so that meant travelling out of rust bucket MN.
Long story short, almost got a camry all-trac from the west coast or a 5gc from the east coast.
Ended up in south coast to get Colin's 1MZ 6GC. 18 hour drive home and my very first ticket (speeding); totally worth it.

First mod: 20mm/25mm spacers on the front/rear with the 7gc wheels. Nearly sits flush with the vehicle.



Other things I have done so far:
Audio system: A small sub and amp
New intake filter: Coned shaped K&N filter to replace the old cylindrical one.
Euro riser blocks: Reps from Teo, highly recommend his stuff.
Wheels and tires: Fixed my brother's curb-rash 5-Zigen FN01RC and new paint w/ some new Yokohama S Drives.
