    Default New Celica owner from Alabama

    Hi everyone. I am a "new" Celica owner (but not of a new "Celica") from Alabama. My introduction to the Celica has just begun with a nice-looking 1987 ST that I picked up for $300. It ran great but wouldn't shift into anything but 1st or Reverse (no higher gears) and the guy had bought something to replace it already as he did not want to fool with fixing it. I put a $39 governor body in the transmission about 5 days ago (took a couple hours) and it runs through all the gears flawlessly now. I am falling for this car pretty quickly. I was fixing it up for one of my daughters, but I might have to get her something else now lol. While it is in great shape for a 24 year old car (obviously garaged by the first owner and yes, I will try and post some pics soon), I guess I am most impressed with the fact that it doesn't drip a drop of anything! I mean this is a 24 year old car with 103,000 miles on it. I ran it until operating temperature for about an hour (trying to burn out the old gas where it sat for a year), then parked it inside the engine bay (where we park the ambulances) and let it run for another 15 minutes (bay doors open - no CO) and checked the floor underneath ..... clean as a whistle! Thanks for the info on here and your contributions to it. I look forward to my time here. Have a great day.

    Hey Tracy. Welcome to the fold. You mentioned ambulances which leads me to ask if you fix them or fix people.

    No I don't know where that is, but I am not from there. I only went that far to get a car because we have a former Pastor who lives nearby and I visited with them while up there from Alabama. Have a great week.

    Yes it is. Half of the peanuts grown in the US are grown within a 100 mile radius of Dothan.
