Call me stupid, but this looks like as much fun as anything ever made.

Talked him down to $800. Looking at it tomorrow evening, and will probably pick up on Saturday.

Should make for fun in the snow, eh?

Mitsubishi motors FTL!!!!

Although, If you put a new motor in it, you would have a real fast cool car (untill that one blows up too).


I say do eet!

He ran it out of oil. I would bet he just spun a rod bearing. Relatively cheap fix, could PROBABLY keep the built bottom end.

I'm not dumb enough to run out of oil.

It'll be fine for me.

Yep. There's actually a few of these running around Indy. I've had the pleasure of riding in one that was running a basic setup, 3" exhaust, big front mount, and a boost controller, stock turbo, welded diff. The damn thing flat out SCREAMED. This one is/was better done, and is cleaner to start.

I would bet good money that it just spun a bearing when it ran out of oil. I'll know better tomorrow. :)

You haven't seen or been in my Celica lol. At least this has an interior. It'll be plenty dd-able as long as i'm not flat-footing it.

Nah, i think i'd be happy with it the way it is. Put a decent stereo in it and call it a day. I don't need a faster DD than this is.

It would cost me a LOT of money to get the Celica back to daily driver status to the point i would be even remotely happy with it. Probably just as much as swapping it, and with my ST205 engine fund nearing critical mass, it'd be a big bitter pill to swallow to dump that money into interior amenities.

You're all mad gay for admitting you watched that train wreck of a film. I couldn't finish the preview without wanting to commit a hate crime.

And Ciento you get the award for finding the craziest shit on craigslist. And you're only half gay for watching half of the movie. The rest of you have no excuse. :bigthumbu

There is a local here that I think had the fastest one in the country. It was a white Mitsu branded one with the engine swapped out of an eclipse. He now has an evo and a miata that he messes around with.

They are decent looking cars too.

Now, why not just use one of the 2 celicas you currently own as a dd?

The GTS is digusting and doesn't run.

I'm just going to go grab the engine and whatever interior parts i can salvage out of it in the next month, and just scrap it.

It's yellow with a huge orange flame job, 14-inch steelies. It's ballertastic.

Got it for $600, though. Just happened to have a 3sgte in it. No wiring harness. Amazing the wierd shit you can find in the weeds out in the country in this state.


The GT, is not daily driveable. It's flat out annoying, loud, rattley, interior is gone, rides like poop. I bought it for a straight body to make into a race car. :p Nothing more. It didn't even run when i bought it and i was perfectly fine with that.

I got it the same month i got the GT. Noticed the GTS in the weeds when i was trailering the GT out of Cloverdale.

Stopped, asked the guy if he wanted me to do him a favor and haul it out. He said he needed some money out of it, because he had sunk $2500 into it a year ago, blah de blah. Alarm bells start going off, so i went and looked under the hood. Saw a 3sgte with no wiring harness.

Offered him $600. Picked it up the next week, moved it to a buddy's parents' barn. I need to get it out of here. It's a really digusting car.

I once had a lead on a pair of CRXs for $500 just outside of Indy, one was kitted, the other was stock. Both 5 speed, one was an Si I want to say. Dude that had them also had a heavily modded Del Sol, glassed interior, wang, wheels...
