View Full Version : spotted: celica.net sticker on a car in a wrecker!

05-09-2005, 11:56 AM
I was at toyospares the other day, they'd just recieved a 5th gen with a Gen I 3S-GTE conversion done to it - It had a celica.net sticker on the windscreen!! Anyone know who's car this was? Had a GT-4 bonnet on it... besides the motor it looked pretty stock. Its in a pretty sad state atm... apparently the owner just wanted it gone, sold it to the wreckers for $3000!

do you want to get some details of the car.. i have been around since we started getting the stickers in so if its a proper sticker likelyhood is ill know the car.

i pic of the car would make it even easier.

was it a white one by any chance? auto?

I was at toyospares last week, fuck they have some nice stuff there! They got that silver ST205 for sale, looks immac, he wants like $20k or something for it, then there's that old T18 (i think?) with the 3SGTE conversion, and they had an ae92 SX with a 4AGZE in it, looks like they were doing the conversion for someone.

Always something to impress me there

Yeah ronin - it was white and auto I think. Looking very unloved :(

Tooch, yeah there's always something crazy going on there - did u see the cressida with the turbo V8? Madness! Top blokes too, Matt offered to come round to my place to help fix a problem I was having mounting up my new motor - definetly above and beyond the standard of most wreckers!

could be toiletducks.. used to be loved, he used to run around with 18's on it hahaha

05-10-2005, 08:57 AM
Yeah its Toiletducks. i was speaking to Matt about it a couple of weeks ago and he wanted to sell it.

The owner said he couldn't get it engineered because it was an older (gen1) motor in it. but thats not entirely true, there are ways around it.I think thats why he sold it so cheap

ahh i remember that car on teh bling bling 18's.......i also remembering plouhging into a trolley knowing it was there, wedging it between the car and the curb of the car park, with no concern whatsoever


05-13-2005, 06:18 AM
yeah thats ducks, matty from toyospares bought it off him,, i think the main reason matt bought it back is coz he knows the swap he did on that car was illegal, ur not allowed to put an engine in a car tahts older than teh car, therefore that car isnt' roadworthy,,,

was a pretty sorry state that car tho, slush box, 1st gen 3s-gte in a 5th gen, was all over the place, thing duck did hte right thing parting with it

05-13-2005, 11:28 AM
yeah he did. he;s much better off in a big ass 4WD ute r something now AFAIK.

wish he wold show his head in here sometime.. he's a good bloke. someone let him know about the cruise would they and invite him.

beej.. when did he run into the shopping trolley? i cant remember seeing that

05-14-2005, 02:04 PM
Yeah, i asked whether it was legal to put an older engine into a newer car and he just shrugged his shoulders :-/ Ah well... The car has been parted out now anyway, it will live on through its parts in the bodies of others.

They're in Bayswater near the rollerskating rink - we drove past it on the Marysville cruise! I'll ask for ya on saturday, practically been living there since i started my engine swap.

05-18-2005, 02:33 PM

thing that really grabbed my attention,,,, antilag,,,, i have a hard on,,

Dropped in today and got my rear brakes ..

Ducks car is still intact but not for much longer - the GTE is being removed + a 3sfe put back in its place - taking her back to stock again ..

they have some good toys there - 2 sprinters were there - one was getting prepped for a lexus 4lt v8 swap - another had come in and the owner was looking at getting a 20valve done

Saw matty's super clean St205 - very nice !

Another one of the mechanics ( o forget his name ) had the ultimate sleeper there - a te72 GT corolla - with a gen2 3sgte swap - absolutely INSANE!!

Would be buckets of fun to drive :)
