Cheers.

Wheels are like that from factory. Weds Racing Product 14 inch on Goodyear Eagle NCT3's.

I have a 5th Series Celica GT-R 4WS aswell, but it's nothing to look at (bad paintwork).

Will put up some more miscellaneous pictures as I have a few hosted.

Welcome!

It actually says rally on the badge in the picture above. What is different about the Rally version? Is it just a regional name for the GT? Also, for us in the US that is a 1982 model year.

I've had many people ask that question.

Not sure of the answer to that myself. Although, I know the wheels are an option the others didn't have. This is the only 'Rally' model i've seen in the country and it was #26 off the production line. Haven't had the opportunity to inspect any other models thoroughly as they're quite hard to come by over here.

Yeah, I also get people telling me it's not a 3rd generation because of it's year of manufacture, but it has the physical appearance of a generation 3. To me it's a gen 3.

And the Commodore... had to modify the property to keep car vandalisms/thefts to a minimum (so they reside out back).

The descrepancy in years vs models come from that fact that the Japanese Domestic market applies a vehicle year by manufacture date, while the US market sells cars by medel year(independent of the date of manufacture). Not sure how it works in other countries.

Makes sense.

You can't expect to get an answer promptly in the multimedia forum. Post your questions in the 5th gen forum or general discussion forum. People don't use this forum for info exchange typically.

I've got a new project so I need the garage free, and can't keep them all, sadly.

I've had a good 9 years of motoring in it though :) - hundreds of photos, plenty of videos and of course the unforgettable memories.


For the NZ'ers, here's the auction:
