Hello!
My name is Robbie, I am 19 years old. I am a soldier in the United States Army and live in Japan. I have recently purchased a '96 Celica GT Four. I love it already!
I am new to Celica's but not new to Toyota or to forced induction vehicles. I used to own a DSM(Eagle Talon) back in the states, and that thing spent more time breaking down than it ever did running. I used to be a member of a forum called "dsmtalk" and am currently a member of "TuneMyToyota.com". I have joined this site because I love new opportunities to learn and share experiences about mechanics. Here are a few Pics. Thank you for reading!

Hey Robbie! nice to meet you!
you have a great looking car! she looks completely stock. How many Kilometers on it?

after owning three JDM's I have to say I really dont like how they all have silver (Kenwood) decks even though they have black interior.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! it has 133000KM's on it. It is stock, with the exception of a turbo timer. The army unit im in is a detachment from a battalion in tokyo. there is like 35 of us on an airforce base that has 10000 airman on it.

Good luck with importing it. I hear the US has a 25 year rule where as in Canada we only have to wait 15. I own a JDM '90 GT-Four with 109k km. Helpful hint, if you know any Canadian's (family members or such) you may be able to "bypass" the 25 year rule by getting it registered in Canada, with a Canadian address and plates. Not sure how "legal" this is but you might want to look into it. I heard a story a while back of an American doing something like that. As far as I know he's still driving the car in the states waiting for it to hit 25 years old before he registers it there.

*not that i condone illegal activity, this may be considered grey area*
I would just hate to leave a car like that behind ;)

Nice ride and welcome!

Wow that's a very un-Japanese looking part of Japan! I wouldn't have known it if I didn't read your message!
