Hey fellas (and ladies)

I've been a longtime member of MR2OC and Alltrac.net and frequent lurker here, so it's time to reach out to other members of the Celica community.

Age: 37
Location: Tokyo / Kansas City
Occupation: Software designer

Cars - current:
91 Alltrac (205 swap, GT3071)
2000 Celica GTS
Subaru Legacy GT B4

Cars - past:
85 MR2 Mk1
88 Alltrac
92 MR2 Turbo (2.2L stroker + GT3076)
93 MR2 NA

I live in Tokyo, but have family and a small business in KC, so that's how that works.

I'm pretty happy with my 205-swapped Alltrac (makes about 275 awhp), and enjoy DD'ing the 2000 Celica GTS. The Subaru is a nice car, but belongs to my wife, and is a manu-matic. I miss my MR2s, but we have a child now, and I just had too many cars. An upgraded Alltrac is the perfect car to take away those blues.

Yeah for MR2 owners... or rather former owners. Anyway, welcome!

Thanks for all the salutations, it's good to feel welcome! :)

I do have some pics of the 7th gen somewheres, lemme dig'em up. It's red and bone stock with the 16" alloys from Toyota. Starting to lose it's clear coat in some places though...

I think it's becoming more and more rare to find a 7th gen that DOESN'T have clear coat coming off. Particularly on the front bumper cover and the front portion of the hood. The only reason mine is doing ok is because I re-sprayed it (rattle can super white and clear over it)
