Since my 90 GT won't be seeing the road any time soon, i'm kinda looking for another celica for my summer cruising.

I would REALLY like to find an 88-89 GTS because those are the cars that got me into cars.

If you guys know any good places to look beyond craigslist, ebay, autotrader, I would really like to find a decent one at a decent price.

Thanks!

I'd say it's worth the money, but how hard is the swap?

swap is alot of work. You have to get the flywheel, clutch slave, clutch master, lines, cables, shifter, Tranny, axles, motormounts, clutch pedal & brake pedal. Drill a couple holes in the firewall & mount up the master cylinder.

Dude,
I just might have found one. Some starter issues, but It might be a winner.
I'll post a new post if I get it...

here is an alltrac that is for sale around here if you were willing to have it shipped, i know your looking for a GTS but this one has been for sale for a little while and i would like to see it go to someone who will actually take care of it instead of a ditsy blonde for her first car that will probably trash it and wreck it, i would buy it myself but im poor lol

I really want an ST165. I could part with Mudhoney for one.

If all the Alltrac/GT4s, the ST165 is my favorite.

i think the firewall is precut for manual mc to fit through.
