Hey how is everyone, my story is a long one so lets make it short so i wont bore anyone to death. Bought a 6gc back in february of 2011 for $250. Car was in good condition except for a dent in the rear passenger side but nothing that cant be fixed. started sanding and doing the bondo. time came to put the car in my name and the car came up with an outragous amount of police tickets, tickets i had no intention of paying, but you can guess what happens next, the previous owner was nowhere to be found, so i searched high and low for another 6gc(hard to find them in puerto rico) and i found this 94 st for $400 dollars....no police tickets on this one this time.





as you can see, its in less than good conditions. so everything from my 94 gt will be passed on to my st. i have in my possesion jdm power folding mirrors, raiser blocks, jdm taillights and projector headlight ready to be installed very soon.

here is my 94 gt now considered the organ donor more pics soon

Strange, over here tickets are done on the driver's license. Unless a lien was put on the car because of the tickets. Any who, that sucks regardless. Best of luck to you on getting everything swapped over.
Fuzzyfo
yeah tickets are given on the drivers license here too but im guessing a lot of parking tickets, expired parking meters and lots of parking in the handicap zone.
Box
Still it's odd. Would think it would've just been impounded at that point.

like in califrnia, with the back fees. Im glad my state does not do that!

Tickets to the license eventually dissapear. I believe it's like 4 years or something like that. My previous Celica had a ticket for parking in a "green area" at a beach and it appeared when I was going to buy the permit, but it dissapeared a month after when it got like 4 years old I believe.
Fuzzyfo
i dont think impound lots exist in puerto rico, and if they did, our streets would be a lot less crowded! my tickets dissapeared as well over time

the fun has already begun

the previous owner, an elderly woman, already went through the trouble of sourcing out both fenders and a rear bumper, sadly the bumper she got was from a cuope and i wont be able to use it.

im pretty sure that spoiler has seen better days.

I can't wait to see this one when you are finished! I have 2 "donor" cars here that keep my 3 other Celicas up and running! ; )
Fuzzyfo

got the rear bumper off and installed the donor bumper.

seeing this picture always hurts me


now the car looks a lot more presentable


I had to try out my raiser blocks

as she sits now. cant wait to get the inspection done so i can drive it to my new home and start sanding down this baby and get it ready for paint

Some Bondo and some paint and you'll be good to go.

So the frame was ok? It was just the bumpers messed up? That's awesome!

Are you going to swap the 5S with manual trans over to the ST? that'd be awesome as well.

Now you're only missing the side skirts, trd rear spats and ss3 front splitters... I have a set of OEM sideskirts. Do you know anybody who can replicate them in fiberglass? We could work something out if you're interested smile.gif
Fuzzyfo
yep, bumpers and fenders were the only things messed up. i know someone who can make them into fiber glass, what did you have in mind?
njccmd2002
like the two tone in the back

Nothing really, just replicating them so you can get them if you don't have them already. Just a favor for a fellow 6gc owner. Mine's currently down, so yeah tongue.gif
Fuzzyfo
hey thanks thats very cool of you. i'll get in contact with my friend asap and see what he tells me. yeah i read about your car, bummer, so when can we see it up and running again? right now im in the middle of removing the gt rear disc brake system to install then in my st
Syaoran
Around March plans start moving again. No $$ at the moment and the car isn't that much of a priority.
