    Default Celica number 2!

    so today i found a 1983 celica gt 5speed in a field! got looking at it and the body needs some work but underneath it in really good shape,

    Talked to the guy that owned it and asked if it ran and how much?
    he said 400 bucks and handed me the key and it started right up! i also got the original Toyota wheels! so i went to the bank got him his money and drove the old beast home.

    its gonna need some new front struts and rear shocks.maybe springs not to sure...also its going to need some brake work done they work but i will feel safer with some new rotors pads and shoes.

    The interior is in decent shape also theres only one rip in the drives seat and thats it other than being dirty.

    now i have no knowledge on 3rd gen celicas so any wisdom on them would be great anything and everything!

    ill get some pics going this weekend hopefully

    one thing thats really bothering me is that the speedo dose not work!!! all other gauges work but the speedo

    But so far very impressed with the 22RE and it is very fun to drive! :burn:

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

    Check out DOA racing and LC Engineering for alot of great 22re stuff. They specialize in the trucks but it's the same engine. I tried the adjustable cam gear from LC and the C270 cam from DOA in an '86 4WD pickup with great success! :burn:
