I'm Fernando and I currently live in hot ass Phoenix Arizona.

Well, first off I'm in the process of trying/getting a 6th gen Celica convertible. Currently, I have a MX83 Cressida. I love the car but the parts are a bit pricey and would make more sense for me to get a Celica, since I wanted one to begin with. I'm looking forward to getting it and converting it into a GT4. Should cost me less overall then my Cressida.

6th gen is a bit simpler to convert to GT4, just gotta find the parts.

What part of hell are you in?

Thanks everyone! I'm on the west side over in Avondale.

I've looked up all the parts I would need for this conversion and it would cost me a few grand less then fixing up my Cressida to the way I would want it. Both are sick and you dont see them everyday like Hondas and other makes.

Hrm, that looks like its basically everything to do the swap.

Fernando8877 you're only about 20 minutes away from me. I'm about 20-30 minutes (depending on our lovely PHX freeway traffic) away off the SR-51.

I dont think they made a gt4 vert? Besides living in hell, why would you want a convertible over a hard top? Verts are heavy, and made for girls?

Troof! Why own a car that girls like to ride in?

There are many reasons to get a vert over a hard top. Hardly any out there fixed up. It would still look pretty sick............

see for yourself.....................

It's from some guy in Europe. It's the closest thing to what I'm planning to do. But, it's pretty sick looking and well planned.

Hell yes! Dude, if you pull something off half that sexy, that'd be sweet as hell.

Since, I'm still working on getting a Celica. I'm only in the planning phase, until I finish getting my house, fix and sell my Cressida. So I got a list of where to get all my parts from, well the majority of them.
