I "had" a clean as fuck 87' celica GTS.......
200,000 miles, 3S-GE All the bells and whistles.... but it did have a small problem, the brakes must have not been bled right because it had a "slight" pull at normal speeds, i was going down la tuna canyon at about 50mph.... and at the passing lane i got cut-off, and my front right locked up...started a shimmy, and i almost went into on comming traffic, and the counter measures i took i steered away and i spun out hitting a gard-rail... ugh and i totally fucked my front fender, my hood, bumper, and my driver-side rear A-arm.... bending it in about 2-3 inches. :duh: so im pretty fucked... it still drives fine except the rear tire is all kinked.. my headlights still work...sorta... my bumper is about a foot off to the side... and i had to remove my hood.... rip out the fender skirt, cover the positive battery connection (so it wouldnt spark) and its all fucked up.... the rad. holds water... i un-bent the fan casings they both work! but my front end is pushed in about 5-6 inches from stock .... its all tweeked, i cant continue to drive it, its blown a rad hose due to the pully rubbing it and i look like a retard with a mega fucked up car...

mostly what i want is anyone in so-cal who got a 87 hatch to hit me up... i want to buy it whole... my own criteria is; 87 hatch, 5-speed, gts model or gt or even st... as long as its compatible with the 3S-GE motor... i want to swap it out with mine, and if im lucky enough i want to take the motor out of the car i buy and re-build it on the weekends... eventually having a new motor to drop, i also want to buy a new celica, because i want to do a custom paint job, to my prefrence, and not have to worry about a weak frame from straighting it back out.. its extensive, so im pretty sure after i strip it, its gonna go to the wrecker or sit in my backyard as a part-out.... what do you guys think... iv' heard from many people that i should just buy a new car but im a celica freak (born and raised in a 83' 22r FR celica also my first car!passed down to me now its my brothers) and im just not gonna give in i love my gts, its dependible, handles great, gots pull and it used to look grrrrrrrrreat! now im up shits creek.... a engine swap is nothing to me.... wheres the 87' chassies at anyone??????????????????????????? :burn:

ahhh by the way it was def. air in the line that caused the front right to lock up i had bubbles in the front left, when it was bled.... guess i shoulda checked the brakes b-4 hand... remember kids always check the brakes on a new car.

I think the only thing that pisses me off more than someone else fucking up my shit is when I'm the one that fucks it up, cause then I got nobody else to blame. GL with finding a newish whip.
