Full Version: Hello from SF Bay Area new to the forum
6G Celicas Forums > 6th Generation Celica > General Discussion
Hello from SF bay area. New to the forum but had 2 celicas. Now I have a white 1995 GT hatchback, 5 spd w/ leather seats, sunroof and 8 speaker system.
My last celica was a white 2001 celica GT-S. Mostly into BMW but once in a while I'll buy a different brand just to change it up or if take on a new hobby.
Currently have a 95 M3 (owned since 2000, weekend/track car),03 330i ZHP(since 2006), 2013 328i(bought new-commuter), X5(family hauler) and the celica.
I had owned 4-E36's, 3-E39's , 2-E53's, 1-E34, 1-Z4, 1-Z3, gc 2.5rs, bugeye wagon(for Mt biking hobby), Montero(4 wheeling),
4runner(4 wheeling), Cherokee sport(4 wheeling). I wanted to get into rallyx and was searching around for a candidate. I picked up a RWD E36 with a LSD and
replaced the clutch, brakes and lines, engine and trans mounts and performed maintenance items. As soon as I was done my coworker offered to buy it as his sons first car.
I sold it and looked around for a replacement. That's when I remembered back in the days when Id watch old rally videos of the lancia delta, evolution, GC8 impreza and Celica's tearing up the gravel.
I picked the celica for its classic rally look, driver focused cockpit and can you believe FWD. Unfortunately as I later found out rallyx is not too
popular around here and events are hard to come by. In the meantime I am having fun driving this car and will be performing timing belt, water pump and all seals in the next coming weeks while waiting for an event or when it hopefully rains so I can eneter it at an autox event.
This forum has been great and thanks for the info and other funny moments.
Curious if there are any local bay area members here.
Welcome! I'm guessing by the username you play guitar? Anyhow I think we have a few active members in your area.

I wish, I did learn how to play the guitar. double tap for two consecutive shots. I shoot pistol matches.
