    Newest JNC for me.

    Just thought I'd throw up some pics of my newest JNC project. Its a 72 Celica ST. Manual transmission and 18R-C engine. I am told the person I got it from is the second owner and has had it for mor than 18 years. I'm not new to old J-tin having owned 4 s-30 Z cars, ( Currently a 76 280 is my daily driver ) but I am new to Toyotas.. Just a couple of quick questions: Are there any specialty parts suppliers for these like there are for Z's ex: motorsportauto, black dragon, arizonazcar...ect.. also, will 15x8 0 offset wheels fit on it, thats what I have on my Z and I'd like to get some like it for the Celica (surprising how little info i've found so far). anyway thanks for any help, I'm sure I'll be asking for more in the near future.





    P.S. I threw a pic of the Z up too... just because :lol:

    Unfortunately, no. In the US, the Z is the only JNC with that kind of aftermarket support. :cry:

    "Fit" is a relative term. They will fit dependent on how much tire stretch you are willing to run. Seen lots of them with a 15x7 zero offset, so if you run 195/50-15's on the 15x8, it should just tuck the tires inside, with the rim lips just poking outside the body.

    Try Cabe Toyota. There are a lot of parts you'd be surprised that are still available new. Bagdes, window seals, even fender mirrors. But you have to find a dealer that will take the time to accommodate your requests.

    Thanks guys.. -datsunfreak: I don't know where you got that picture from, but that is one of the sickest looking celicas I've seen. Cars like that keep me inspired on projects like this.. thanks. p.s. those are the wheels I wanted for the Z.. but $$$ kept me away from them. e_at-me i'm in the richmond area usually once a month autocrossing at VMP. ( check out get-fast.net/nasacross or vmsc.org) if not there then at little creek ampib base with Tidewater sportscar club. come check it out. or check us out on facebook- search "Grip Syndicate" thanks again

    thanks for the heads up Datsunfreak.. I was wrong anyway. I was thinking of the Rota RB-R's. thats a great deal on those, I think thats the way I'll go with the celica.
