Well folks, just back from the Toyota meet and to be fair, with the weather conditions i am more than pleased with the turn out...... It was very cold beside the UK and Ireland biggest lough there was alot of ice on the roads. But still a stream of toyotas came from all over the country. There was 2 ST205 Celicas there, my own included but there was a absolutlely stunning ST162 with a 3SGTE conversion done. Myself and Bazza-GT4 visited this car a few weeks back and in all honesty its the cleanest ST16* i've ever seen and you wouldn't even hear it running its that well maintained. There was some unusual cars there, like a 1984 corolla with a 1.8 bottom end and a 4age head all with a garrett turbo conversion pushing out 241bhp to the front wheels. Also a 1990 MR2 with a 3.0 V6 quad cam conversion from a camry mated to a standard mr2 gearbox talk about torque in a wee car like that. But true to Irish form there was about 30 twin cam coupes there and all if not most of them put on a diffing show at the back corner of the car park. It was great seeing some Supras again as they are very rare on the road these days. Thanks again for everyone making the effort to come along. Also got to see the Lexus that Darragh and Caolan bought for their dad, you can read about that in another thread.

Here's a few pics that i took before the camera died. Enjoy.

Those levins all look about the same. Limited aftermarket in Ireland?

the first one is a levin BZR or also known as a Corolla BZR, they're 1.6 20valve putting out 165bhp so not bad going. The car was fairly clean but it comes with the stupid super strut suspension as well.

As for the AE86 we only got the coupe, but now plenty of levins and treunos are coming in from the JDM.

And thanks Cavanagh for the comment.

I still think yours is the best out of the bunch. Gotta love those wheels you have.
