Herro....

I don't think this car really needs that much of an introduction as I'm sure most of you may (or possibly may not) recognize it.

Picked this up from Edgar earlier this week after my last daily was stolen the Friday before Turkey Day and was recovered the following Wednesday in an even ****tier condition than it left. lol So the Celica is going to continue to serve daily duties for me as it did the previous owners.

Anywho, it's been about 9 years since I was last in a 6GC and I'm happy to be back in one. I have a few things planned for it, but trying to prioritize some other plans first before I can set funds aside for the car.

I'd post more pictures, but it's cold as bawls and it's raining/snowing/sleeting down here and I've been working 15 hour days.

I'll update mine if you update yours. lol

It drives.... good. lol It's fun. Not as quick as the Poopra, but it's enough to zip me around traffic. I'm trying not to scratch the mod itch because there's a few things I want to change, but the Supra comes first since I'm "almost done" with it. If I do find some badass deals on stuff that I do want, I may just hop on it first.

pho sho, pham! I'll let you know, but it'll be a while til I get to that point.

Btw, I was telling Daniel a while ago that we need to get someone to sign up with the user name CripCash to counter yours. lol

If you're going to do that then don't get a pool and the accompanying pool boy.

It needs to be more apparent for those not in the know.

So, I finally was able to get the car up in the air to check out what's going on underneath. Looks like I have some work cut out for me, but it's ok....sorta... Kind of expected it. There's a few spots of surface rust here and there that I need to take care of with either some primer or POR15. Main concern is one of the mounting points on the rear subframe for one of the stabilizer bars/arms thing. I'm hoping the rust isn't too bad there where I can just sand it down and clean it up.

One of the rear springs is experiencing some surface rust as well. Debating if I wanna replace with a new spring/strut combo or get coilovers for it.... Bags would be cool doe.... Stuntin' on bags of disappointment with my GT-2!

The mounting hanger for the exhaust by the muffler completely rusted off, so there's a quarter-sized hole sitting there and the exhaust is just now chilling out. May either replace it with another custom 3" exhaust utilizing an oval section under the axle or picking up an HKS Silent Hi-Power or a Fujitsubo exhaust for it.

Car is leaking oil in a few places: Valve covers and turbo oil line for sure. With that said, I ordered a complete engine gasket overhaul kit to replace all seals for the engine. Also ordered some viton valve steam seals and the 2 Hose from Hell pieces. Figured while I was at it, might as well give it a solid tune-up with a new water pump & belt along with an oil pump. My mechanic is going to have a field day with this one. lol Do need to sort out the temp dial AC/Heater situation though with Houston's literal bipolar weather.



For the time being, got the Celica a Christmas present with some S2 JDM tail lights. Need to go borrow some tools now to switch them out since some turd wads thought it was cool to steal my last daily and take my tools that were in it. :\

The Recaros are for the Supra since the driver's seat motor is going out. Just need to order seat rails and sliders for it. They may find their way into the Celica at some point assuming I can find a deal on another set of Recaros, Brides, Braums, or Status seats. Both front seats do need to be recovered though and that may end up being the route I go as it's cheaper and I can do the work myself.

Aside from that, enjoying the mess out of the car and bringing disappointment to all who ask "Is that all-wheel drive?" I can see the light slowly fade from their eyes when I say, "Ngo....."



Quick pic with the poopra before it goes off for a new clutch. Spec stage 2 clutch in the Celica made the stock clutch in the Supra feel non-existent. That was weird.... lol

Hmmm, if you could find some new old stock Tein or Tanabe coil-overs. I looked at some point not long ago and found some Tein ones. Otherwise it's all Taiwanese parts bin stuff as far as new sets go.

I've considered used coil overs, but am concerned about remaining life on them and at what point they'll need a rebuild. If it comes down to it, I'm juggling between BC Racing or Fortune Autos. Either one with the Swift Springs upgrade. By the looks of it, Blitz still offers coilovers for this chassis as well.
