    My 1981 Toyota Celica TA40 GT

    I got the car in 2001. It's a 1981 Toyota Celica GT. It has a 2TG engine with 2 dual solex carbs, but otherwise stock.

    What about the body kit, hood bulge, wing, fog lights, and wheels? :P

    Now that i have some free time i can tell something about the car. It was bouth new in switzerland and i am the second owner of it, and it has only 880000miles. After i got it at 2001 i drove it for about a year and the started modifying it. First of all i took the wheeles from my 84 supra, and started to make the bodykit myself. When i got it it had the hood scoopand the little spoiler on it already. The interior is completely stock except for the sterio but i have the original unit. The engine is stock exept for the carbs and the exaust which is a 4-2-1 system. And if anyone wants to know about my other car the 1984 Celica Supra it is a restoration project that will probably never will get started.

    Sorry i dont have any pictures becouse my laptop was stolen along with all of my photos. But basiclly my friend made the templates from foam and the i started to lay fiberglass on them. It took about 6-7 weeks until i finished the side and the rear bodykits. The front kit is made from rubber so is the spoiler at the back and i have no idea how that is done, but the great thing is the frons spoiler doesent crack or chip at all. Here are some photos of the bodykit right before paint.
