taxes came back so now i can start buying parts

1st thing in the morning i get to go pay for a mid mileage engine for 700 with a warrenty, that was more than i wanted to spend but it includes the assesories and whatnot. i can make some of my money back and i needed a starter anyway. plus no core :wiggle:

gonna go by dynamic73's house and buy a rack with 63,000 miles on it for 30 bucks

then go by toyota and get a 4x4 truck clutch assembly for the celica

also go price me an engine stand as well so the motor wont be sitting on a rim/pallet for long

No no... the clutch assembly, since you're getting it from Toyota anyway, may as well order it online.

Yeah... employee discount > 1sttoyotaparts

Which is why I keep applying to be an oil tech/parts counter/courtesy driver at my local Toyota...
