so i found a black euro spec 5th gen, saw it from a distance last time i was at the yard, dont know much about it could be a gt4 or a 3sge the hood was up so not to sure, i cant put any weight on my foot for another month so no pulling parts for me now. i asked a friend that works there and he told me that he wouldnt be able to put it out in the yard for another month. i do plan on pulling the fenders, taillights, and the corner clear lights and maybe the top end if its worth it

The cams should be an upgrade for someone if its a 3SGE

The headlights.

That is a rare and little known one. The EDM spec headlights are glass H4 housings with a curved glass to match the front of the Celica. Since they are euro spec, they are LHD and flash to the right, not left.

I only know of two folks in the US that have a set of them.

With that set of mirrors, we can get someone to make appropriate replacement glass.

Are they all that way or was it just an option?
I was under the impression it was an option.

You know, I never looked into that. I assumed they were that way stock. I guess I could be wrong. If they were an option, that makes them even rarer.

Then again if Bruce has some, that means he gets to join our exclusive club.

Only an option on j-spec cars. European cars had manual fold power mirrors and some had heated glass but no power fold.

Well there is this guy, who lives somewhere in Europe. I don't know what he does for a living, he is kinda hush hush about that. Anyways, he had a set, and he was gonna sell them to this cat, but the cat came up short on money, so this other dude bought the set. About a year later, the guy who lives in Europe sold his car, so he had another set of the lights, so the cat called him back up and asked him to sell him the lights since he had to pass on the last set to the other dude.

So as far as I know, the cat and the other dude are the only two in the states to have them, cause they got them from this guy in Europe.

But now there is a cop claiming he has three sets, so I don't know.

Cops lie to get you to admit shit...

"Like hey I got these lights", cop jumps in and says "oh I always have these lights and shit" original dude says "oh but my lights are special" and cop jumps in and bust someone... That is how they roll...
Cops...

Tainones, the Celica at ramstein is not a euro spec car. It is a j-spec 4 wheel steering car! When you get back on your feet talk the guy at the yard into selling it! By the way it does have power fold mirrors. I touched them today. :)

When I was there last week it was still behind the hut. If they put a low price on it and it ran I would consider buying it. with the way it looks you could probably pick it up for under $500. If it ran I would take it for that.

sorry but when i talked to him about 3 weeks ago he said it was going out for parts, which means the motor or trannys bad, or it would have went up for bid.

david in germany
09-08-2012, 08:07 PM
I talked to the dude when I was there and said that it was a pretty rare car. He told me he had not checked to see if it would run but since I told him he may check it and stick it on the bid line.

In December I will most likely be donating my lancia unless the oil leak mysteriously stops prior to inspection. If I could find a dependable Celica (cheap) when that happens I would be pleased. :)

Gen5 cams will not work in a Gen4, the lobes are too big for the shim buckets, you could use them on a gen5 GTE though.

<edited by David in Germany>
Not selling in this thread. Don't try it again.

Well today i found a toyota curren at the yard, david in germany was the first person i thought of. The car was setting with so other cars that were selling for 350 to 400 dollars, so i ask they guy how much it was selling for. He said the car was not for sale, but was going out in the yard to be parted out.

david in germany
10-20-2012, 09:17 AM
Don't worry about it man. Baumholder is a bit to far for a car that may or may not be road worthy. My lancia will continue to mark it' territory till July.

so i looked at the curren it is a st206, it has a 3sge, and super strut suspension if it was a road worthy car it would be a kick ass car to have
