    Default Almost a classic, 23 yrs old...

    Short background story:
    I've been in the Celica/Supra scene for 8 years now, the car that got me into this mess was a 1984 Celica GT automatic. Then got a '84 Celica GTS 5 spd some months later and eventually found an '85 Supra that I fell in love with.

    Since then, I have had 3 Celicas (my 3rd one was an '85 GTS vert) and 9 Celica Supras (all mk2).

    I know she's not full blooded Celica, but figured I'd post her up anyway. I got this car for FREE last September. Automatic, had no reverse, owners said it stopped running. All she needed was a battery and she started up and ran and drove (just not in reverse, but who cares?)



    Broken airdam. It broke going on to, and coming off the tow dolly. Just too damn low, lol.



    Nice long key gouge down the side of the car.


    Custom clear turn signals I had made a few years back, airdam "fixed" temporarily (i.e. tie straps and spray paint)



    Changed the rear side markers w/ ones from a Celica XX/Euro Supra.

    just because you want to be "different". Why not just take that mentality a couple steps forward and get yourself a Pontiac Aztek?

    Thanks guys. I'll have a ton more pictures to post soon, as I've been working on a secret build for the car. Don't want to post anything up yet until it's finished (which should be within the next month)

    Welcome aboard.

    I have always liked the MkII.

    So...... back in January I picked up a JDM 3.0 block off of craigslist for $50. Got it home, tore it apart to find out that the crank and rods were wasted. Luckily my bf had a spare 6M crank laying around and I was able to get a set of free 7M connecting rods. Dropped everything off at the machine shop in February, got stuff back at the end of February and started putting the engine together.

    Got the engine in the car and running on 4/20, got the car dyno'd yesterday at 155rwhp and 175ft/lbs. Engine is bored .030" over with high comp (9.7:1) pistons and the rest of the goodies that were on the stock 5M (header, intake, etc).

    Oh yeah, it's a 5 speed now too. No more auto!

    think most places it is 25, some places say 20. I know I won't be emissions exempt until it is 25, but that's ok... should pass emissions with no EGR if I keep the cat on it.
