So I just got into the tuner scene around two years ago, I went and bought me a 1994 Toyota Celica GT 2.2L N/A Manual. Well in the two years i've owned her the first thing that happened was my girlfriend ran into the side of her (I think she was jealous). Then I burnt out the clutch (I was 16 at the time, first car, was rawhiding). Then my dad "accidentaly" ran it into the front of his jeep and busted the inner headlight and bent in my front bumper. Someone keyed the side of her, spraypainted her, and covered her in window chalk, you can see the pic in my gallery. Then my friend bent the rocker paneling when he was helping me put it on racks. Not having the money for a pro paint job, I decided to spraypaint her, its not bad but you can tell its not good either lol. I put a Weapon-R short ram intake on her, a F1 Stage 3 racing clutch, 16in Pacer rims, and an aftermarket radiater. I let my friend drive her outta town one day and I had to tow her home. He burnt out my new clutch, snapped my shifter cables, fried my distributer, busted my rear and front engine mounts and ruined my passenger side front axle bushings. You can honestly say shes been through hell and now im on a mission to have her running right.
Any support, help, or advice would be greatly appreciated.

If nothing else you have developed some history with the ole girl.

Also, never let anyone drive your car. For obvious reasons.

Did you paint it with rattle cans?

Regretably I painted her with rattle cans, and i've learned the hard way not to let anyone else drive her.

2 important things in life

dont loan your car or your girlfriend to a friend. Why? cause its too easy to throw a rod in them.

Welcome to the site. Not sure specifically what advice you are asking for in this thread, besides the obvious comments from people about don't let anyone else drive your car!

If you have any specific questions about the car, just fire away and I will try and help.

Thanks guys for the feedback, and the advice wasn't neccesarily for this thread. The first thing I really need help with though is finding a set of shifter cables, i've been online for months looking for a set and have yet to find them. Once those are outta the way I can get the clutch and engine mounts.

Hey, welcome to Celicatech. I'm not a huge member around here, but you should head over to 6gc.net. You should be able to find whatever parts and help you need over there. It sounds like you have a history with your car, and I love your determination to fix it up instead of just giving up and buying a new car.

I agree with this.... I'll be honest, I'm on 6gc as well, and I've found more help/support over here. Much more friendly atmosphere (IMO), extremely knowledgeable members that are always willing to help in any way they can :) ctech= my second family, no joke.

I shudder to think of the abuse I put my first car through (a 67 Chevelle), but it was all good experience for later cars. Personally it sounds like you might be better off starting over with a new car, but thats just my opinion. I dont fall in love with my cars (or my women) anymore, it can only lead to financial ruin and heartache. ;)

but if you are determined to keep her, you've come to the right forum.
