This car is AWESOME!!! My neighbor across the street has had this beaty since mile marker 90,000. It currently has 176,000. He has kept it in amazing shape and running perfectly. Oil change every 2,500 miles. Needless to say he has seen me workin on my project Celica for the past 3 years. With his wife pregnant they needed to get an SUV. So instead of trading it in he decided to give it to me!!!! I love this car and year celica. Baby gets 30.6 mpg. He also told me he wanted to give to someone who like him charishes Celicas. In side his garage is 1980 Celica with the carburater and everything that he has been tinkering around with forever.

Can't beat that. Looks like its in awesome shape!

What is it?

Its a 1987 GT. Thing runs perfectly. He complained of hard idling when warm. I popped the hood and there was a vacuum hose off one of the EGR sensors on the coolant housing. That fixed it perfectly. Other than that is a little rust on the sunroof and on the door. But for FREE i can't complain. In fact i am elated!

Nice score. I love my ST162, great handling car, lighter than the 5th Gen too I am sure.

Have fun with it!

What are your plans for it?

wow, very nice. At least your neighbor new the right person to give it too!

I use to have a 4th gen GT-S coupe(the engine i rebuilt came out of there). But I am definetly liking the hatch better. As of now i don't have any plans for it. I need to finish my other celica. But i am basically just going to try and make as clean as possible OEM style. MAYBE down the road some mods. It was nice to be able to get rid of my beat up 1990 Honda Accord(4 door) for this beauty.

You should introduce your neighbor to the Celitech!

yea i know. This thing gets better mileage then my accord was. For now my goal for the car is to increase its MPG. all my other celicas never got the mileage the 3s-fe gets. It really is a great economy motor.
