    My 74 TA22 Celica - 'Project'

    Gday Fellas,

    As i sold my gemini, which was a sad moment, I decided i needed something that will eventually replace my BA fairmont as a daily. Had to have curves etc. and rwd. So I was after a 70s car that was manual and a 4 banger.
    $500 later i had purchased this:












    At some stage it was reupholsted pity its got stacks of cigarette burns and its faded..





    This shows the fading...


    And this is the Heart of the beast.

    3T SOHC - but alas... no twin carbs... maybe later :lol:

    So thats pretty much my bomb! 8)

    Updates will follow when i actually update something :lol:


    Dave.

    I must correct a mistake, the 3TC is not a SOHC, it is in fact an OHV engine, the cam is in the block, not in the head. Anyways sweet ride, I've been wanting a 70s Celica myself.
