Hello all, I just bought my first Celica almost 2 weeks ago and I love it. Took me 2 years to find one in my price range in my area, lol. It's a 1990 Celica Alltrac, and I bought it from the original owner! It's 100% stock right now, but I have plans for it in the future. I'm super stoked! It will be a great addition to my family of cars. My other cars are an 11 second 240SX, and a stock-ish 240SX convertible.

Here are a couple quick pics I took of the car the day after I bought it:

Well, he was originally asking $5800, but kept coming down over the course of a year (I have no idea why no one bought it).

Geeze.. there's like 3 alltracs here in AZ for sale. There's a 92 'trac for $3g I almost bought before I opted to do the swap.

It was! I have a huge folder with every recipe ever done, lol. It was nice buying from an original owner! It's funny though, the sticker price was almost $27,000 in 1990!

They have always been uber rare in these parts, lol

BTW, I don't know if anyone cares since it isn't a Celica, but here is my 11 second Nissan 240SX Coupe lol:

Haha, I was just about to ask for pics of the 240 too! Very slick and hella low key, can you street that?!

Alltrac's nice too though. What are your plans for it? A Winter daily, another drag car? Maybe some conefagging? lol

Thanks! The 240 is very streetable. I actually drive it every day during the summer, ha ha. I put about 14,000 miles on it every year lately. Used to put more on it in the past (I've had it for 6 years, and put over 130,000 very hard miles on the old SR before putting in the built one, lol). Even though I drag race the 240 here and there, I'm actually building it for road courses. It's almost ready!!!

As for the alltrac, yes it's definitely my winter driver, but also going to my my auto-x slut when I attend those events. I'm only looking for enough power to get me in the 13's with the celica, as that area seems best for power in the auto-x, and making sure it can hold its own against the average ricer at the drag strip, ha ha.
