Well I thought I would start another thread for my new daily driver. I purchased a 1993 GT-FOUR on August 25th, 2010 with 156,650 km's, about 85,000 of them put on during highway driving over the past 18 months my the previous owner. This car was purchased to replace my '95 GT-S as my daily driver. I figured I would need a better car to get through the snowy winters this year. Now I am actually excited to drive in the snow.

This car is a little rough around the edges, but that is what I was looking for as it is meant to be driven and enjoyed. I know it is going to get rock chips and door dings, but am willing to accept that as payment for driving it. My ST205 can stay in the garage and only come out for nice weather and I can drive this through the rain, hail, and snow.

At this point I don't have any big plans for modifications as this is to be my reliable daily driver. That is what I say now, but I am sure I will put money into this one as well since I will be spending many hours in it driving.

On the priority list right now is simply to give her a good wash, wax, claybar, etc. to bring her shine back.

Here are a few pictures of it the day I purchased it.

As for the interior it has rare leather interior and the premium 10 speaker Super Live Sound System.

It also has a nice small Momo steering wheel that I am quite happy with.

Well for now that's about all I have to say about my new car. I hope in the next few weeks I can put some TLC into her and make her shine even more.

Leather, System 10, sunroof and ABS are standard on '93, but options on 90-92, iirc. I'm jealous that you daily a '93. If I got my hands on one, she'd be a garage queen, but then again, I live in the states where we get shafted on cars.

Hey I didn't know that. I honestly don't know much about ST185's, at least not yet.

Yes we are pretty luck up here in Canada with the 15 year import laws. Many nice Japanese cars are now available for import.

Nice Dave! Always good when these cars stay 'in the community' so to speak. White Celica's are awesome, so can't go wrong.

The stickers on the side of a JDM Celica say "GT-FOUR" and the smaller is regarding the twin entry ceramic turbo and AWD.

Just wanted to update my thread. I just installed a set of Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 Studded tires on stock 6th gen rims. This thing has amazing traction with no slipping at all on ice or snow.
