Hey Everyone, nice to meet you all.

Recently i've just purchased a second hand gen5 red celica:
http://storage.msn.com/x1phiCZJPhsUYi35oSObJKSq0dQ20GFhyMYgvry1qmPcu1nS5G najXrhuRzlc9Jf1HX62ru9NLzEIIH3Ll-vOna-KQtwndEJJ8q

Now I think this celica is unique, as there has been a complete red paint job to the front of this car, making the black strips on a stock car red. I haven't seen any other paint job like this before, so I consider the paint job unique. The bonnet is also a darker shade of red. I think this means that there has been a front end crash previously, but it looks all good now.

Mechanically, the car is in fine order. I haven't noticed any large problems with it, there is that problem that on cold days when I just start it a puff of blue smoke comes out the exhaust, but i've searched already on this forum and found out that it's normal. It's also a little hard to get it into reverse, but I think there might not be enough gearbox fluid, coz it's a little rough changing gears.

Apart from that, I've named it Kitsune, which means fox in japanese. I might get a vinyl japanese character to put on the bonnet. If I make this vinyl white, i think that the odd colour matching from the bonnet to the rest of the car will be less noticeable.

Anyways, it's nice to meet some people who also own celicas,

Cya round,

Love the paint job painting the black strips the same color as car, to make it consistent I would also get the clear turn signals to go with the corner lights.
