Thread: Import Tuner

  1. #1

    Default Import Tuner

    EVO Killer?
    Just writing in to see if you could feature my car in your magazine. It's dedicated to my brother, who recently passed away, and I'm sure he'd be honored to see it in print. It's a '90 Toyota Celica GT, ST185. Thanks guys!
    Marlon Martinez, Clifton, NJ



    Can't do a print feature, Marlon-sorry. The car's looking good, but just isn't quite ready yet . . . and we're willing to bet not a whole lot of people could relate to the fluke turbo/AWD coupe Toyota built, like, four of before turning their backs on the project altogether (no matter how much we actually like All Tracs). But since that upgraded turbo under the hood tells us yours is one of the better ones out there, we're giving you 34 seconds of fame this issue. That, and possibly the first-ever "Honorary Feature" spot on importtuner.com. Nice work!
    I texted Luni as soon as I read that little snippet in the February issue of Import Tuner.
    Now, these guys don't think that Celica is worthy of a print feature?
    Let's give them something.

    This is probably referring to Sean or Captain, but I want to see a full feature in their magazine so CelicaTech can get some publicity.

    I'm disappointed and hopefully The Captain has some say and gets Princess in that issue now!

    John was already featured in the "reader's rides" issue guys, remember? Or was that in Modified?

    You all know I have an unnatural love for Celicas(like many of us), but their side makes sense when you think about it. Celicas don't sell magazines, the market is much larger for Hondas, Nissans, and Subarus.

    I don't like the way they said it to hide that fact, but that's the real motivation. Their target market is teens with Civics that think they're hot shit. That isn't going to change for a while.

    The Coupe:
    - Custom SRI, external coil distributor conversion, MSD Blaster 2 coil, MSD 6a ignition, OBX 4-1 Header, 2.5" exhaust with Magnaflow muffler, Eibach springs, GT-S hub/rear disc conversion, Lots of shiny red engine paint, Ridiculously unnecessary 5" tach, Tons of fun useless switches and pretty glowing red lights, Currently sitting in the driveway with a snapped timing belt I'm too lazy to fix...
    The Hatch:
    - Custom SRI, External coil distributor conversion, Accel performance coil, Hayden transmission cooler, ASI dual-core aluminum ST165 radiator, Some shiny black engine paint, A few glowing red lights, Temporarily downgraded to daily driver status...

    Modified also did a feature on an st185 when the first launched. I still have that issue somewhere. Its the clutch sponsored alltrac.

    The point is to come beyond they're Civic/240 bias and show them what Celicas can do.
    It's widely acknowledged that bodykits are a thing of the past, and now people want JDM. CS/RC are some of the best looking cars made, in my opinion, and a full-featured article with high-resolution images would give magazines incentive to publish, since they don't have to do all the work and get a quality feature.
    I have always loved Sean's car, and Captain's is one of the best (if not the best) All Trac in the world. And if we can somehow throw the forum logo into their magazine? That'd do wonders for the community.

    I hope they continue the Civic/240 bias. I love going to the junkyard and pulling quality Toyota parts and laughing at all the pathetic riced out messes that end up there.

    My all time FAVORITE, that I wish I had a camera for, before the scavengers came for the last bits, was a Civic hatchback at upullandpay. I love piecing together how cars end up at the junkyard. For Celicas, it's a blown motor over 250k miles or a wreck. For the others, it's a self induced wreck or a project gone awry.

    This Civic hatchback had pretty cheap quality fuel line hose running through the interior. It was all over the place, it almost didn't make sense. It ran from the trunk to the engine bay. Cheap strap clamps held it together at brass junctions. Under the driver seat was an oval plumbing toilet valve. It was his value-time NOS setup.

    I could imagine that sad retard, hopping in his spring cut ride while the cabin filled with nitrous. It was all pink and funny before he took out that elm.

    Please Import Tuner, cater to that crowd.

    I say we get a badass picture of some of the best Celicas at the Dragon meet and send it in as a giant-ass article. Then, we can send it in to them.



    You want to know a real fluke? That they're still in business. I see more badass shit on the internet than I ever do in print media. For example, I have a free subscription to Motor Trend. I used to read it religiously a few years back, but then I discovered AutoBlog, and viola! I already knew everything MT did before the mag came out.

    Thanks guys. I'm always humbled by stuff like that. To be considered like this in this community is always an honor. I'd love to see Princess in another mag. My brother has a really nice digital camera. I should take her out for some really nice pics. I just don't seem to have the eye for good photography. Maybe he'll let me use it on the dragon this year. I tried to do a magazine looking article on the last dragon run, but alas, I never finished it.
