So a good friend if mine has located a 1999 Celica GT. It is wrecked in the front left corner, and the left rear quarter panel. He is a lifetime bodyman, so fixing it would be no problem for him. Plus I will help, with everything but the quarterpanel. (which looks awful, but is hit behind the door, in front of the wheel, and above the rocker.) It is automatic, fully loaded, black leather, everything, it runs and drives good, it has 180000 mi, but seems to be taken very good care of, ie: all fluids full and clean, no rust, interior is perfect, etc. And it runs awesome!

Since the parts will need to be replaced anyways, I am pushing her to get the GT4 bumper, and maybe the hood too. And she wants to paint it some kind of burnt orange. (350z color possibly??)

After all is said and done, She will probably have not much more in it than $4000. Seems like a pretty good deal to me.

We are going back out to look at it again tonight, so I will post some pics of it in it's current state a when we get back.

What do you guys think?? worth it??

Like I said, I will post pics Later tonight or tomorrow.

With that much abused it took, i don't think its just cosmetic damage.You're going to have to worry about the frame.

Auto? booo. Maybe for like 3,000. I do love the 6th gens though.

burnt orange is the 350z color, but liplip might be right, the frame may be bent, and some other things as well. We had a nissan maxima in the shop at school where it had been hit in the side, and that sides bushes were all messed up, but the other side was perfectly fine. Hope it will go well, but you are gonna need to really take a look at it

Yeah, the frame is fine, the door still opens and shuts fine, the pillar isnt bent, although it did knock the quarter-glass out. It was hit above the rockers so the floor is straight, behind the door pillar, and in front of the wheel, so no suspension damage. The car was parked on the street when it got run into. At least that's what I'm told.

Will go later today to get pics.

She wants an auto, she isnt quite the avid racer like the rest of us.

And 4000 is for everything done, painted , and on the road.

The hood would be kinda unnessary IMO, but w/e floats your boat i guess. celica autos dont run THAT bad. :)
