Short background story:
I've been in the Celica/Supra scene for 8 years now, the car that got me into this mess was a 1984 Celica GT automatic. Then got a '84 Celica GTS 5 spd some months later and eventually found an '85 Supra that I fell in love with.

Since then, I have had 3 Celicas (my 3rd one was an '85 GTS vert) and 9 Celica Supras (all mk2).

I know she's not full blooded Celica, but figured I'd post her up anyway. I got this car for FREE last September. Automatic, had no reverse, owners said it stopped running. All she needed was a battery and she started up and ran and drove (just not in reverse, but who cares?)

Broken airdam. It broke going on to, and coming off the tow dolly. Just too damn low, lol.

Nice long key gouge down the side of the car.

Custom clear turn signals I had made a few years back, airdam "fixed" temporarily (i.e. tie straps and spray paint)

Changed the rear side markers w/ ones from a Celica XX/Euro Supra.

Thanks guys. I'll have a ton more pictures to post soon, as I've been working on a secret build for the car. Don't want to post anything up yet until it's finished (which should be within the next month)

I have always liked the MkII.

It will be my next Celica acquisition.

As soon as the wife says I can buy another car.

So...... back in January I picked up a JDM 3.0 block off of craigslist for $50. Got it home, tore it apart to find out that the crank and rods were wasted. Luckily my bf had a spare 6M crank laying around and I was able to get a set of free 7M connecting rods. Dropped everything off at the machine shop in February, got stuff back at the end of February and started putting the engine together.

Got the engine in the car and running on 4/20, got the car dyno'd yesterday at 155rwhp and 175ft/lbs. Engine is bored .030" over with high comp (9.7:1) pistons and the rest of the goodies that were on the stock 5M (header, intake, etc).

Oh yeah, it's a 5 speed now too. No more auto! :D

think most places it is 25, some places say 20. I know I won't be emissions exempt until it is 25, but that's ok... should pass emissions with no EGR if I keep the cat on it.

yeah I know here its 20. Do you have to have yours emissions tested? We dont have to lol btw that motor looks perfect in that car

Clean supra. Looking alot better than my celica. Just wondering what brand and model those rims are, love the look.

Very nice!

I honestly think that the stock wheels look nicer. Clean them up and repaint the painted parts like Jason did in his TE72 Corolla project thread.

You can just go search on celicasupra.com... she posts rather heavily there, as well as occasionally on celica-gts.com.

Girl knows her shit. Hats off to ya Tanya!
