How many miles on that bad boy?

06-05-2007, 10:48 PM
Ya the outside doesnt look bad at all. So far better then that cursed to hell maxima?:hehe:

06-05-2007, 10:55 PM
well, the maxima has been running with a bhg for 6000 miles and no knock, just everything else is broken

well the celica only has 130k on it

dunno why it started knocking

damn the bad luck if only it was an r series engine

06-05-2007, 10:57 PM
another hooptie!@

06-05-2007, 11:02 PM
You could snag a 5sfe for pretty damn cheap though, but it must be irratating.

06-05-2007, 11:07 PM
got one already

hooptie my ass, im building this thing for someone else so im being given funding

after i get this whole engine thing done theres only a few things left

cf trim
trunk hinges
windsheild.........insurance = free
1 mud flap
tune up stuff

06-05-2007, 11:23 PM
Light blues!

Mr Celica
06-05-2007, 11:44 PM
man.. that thing is haggard. if it were any other car and not a celica i'd say don't even bother.. but i have a softspot for those cars so good job!

06-06-2007, 02:35 AM
:bigthumbu Got to love the vert. looks nice!

06-06-2007, 05:12 AM
at this point i could set fire to it

06-06-2007, 10:34 AM
That'd be a nice insurance claim. You buy too many cars man! I got my new 5S for $800 and it came with both manifolds, wiring harness and all the accessories still on it.

06-06-2007, 03:41 PM
just dropped car off

motor should be there this afternoon

im going junking later

06-07-2007, 12:23 AM
so yeah got a blue fender, exact same color somehow that was mostly undamaged (cept the area behind the coner light, i can bang it out)

also got a trunk hinge for it as well, i still need the driver side though

going back tomarrow to go get cf trim, found a rear ended 92 im gonna be grabbing parts off of

also found a mint shape 84 gts, i dunno why its there, im getting the dash, seats and misc parts off of it.

already took some goodies from it

i should get the vert back in 2-4 days, then im putting 4 new tires on and gutting the cat, and fixing exaust leak while im at it

06-07-2007, 12:33 AM
man I wanna go on a junkyard crawl!

It's been awhile. I need meh fix!
