After seeing a prototype of Jun Imai’s latest design in the flesh at JCCS last weekend, we’ve had nothing but Celica on the brain all week here at JNC.
Thank you for this insightful comment. It’s added to this experiance immeasurably.
Very nice! Love that engine sound.
Oh how I long for that power plant under my corolla’s hood. I’m definitely feeling that video!
At first I thought 2JZ, but there are only 4 ITB’s, what motor is this? Did any other music geeks catch ratatat in the background?
Yes on Ratatat!
that’s a beams 3sge
Thanks for featuring me, I’m honored! I read JNC everyday and today I got a big surprise
Also, thanks for all the kind words everyone. It always feels good to be recognized for doing what you love.
so cool, great sound, rev it man, all the way!!
Beautifully setup and the motor sounds awesome!
Sometimes I wonder if Toyota could bring back the Celica. Infact why don’t we just take the current tC and make it rear wheel drive. It looks good, the motor is good, Aasbo has a RWD converted one in D1. The window design even reminds me of the older celicas http://maydaygarage.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Dylans_mint_1974-Toyota_Celica-_GT-CustModCars.Com-5.jpg vs

I’m glad we have the FR-S, but at the same time a more affordable RWD would be fun too. I gladly picked my 2013 tC for $21k. Even as a FWD its a fun car but there will always be times where I wish it wasn’t.
Awesome car, awesome song, Ratatat Loud Pipes is the best!
