    ta28 project frm malaysia. update on page 3 (22.08.08)

    hi to all,
    im a newbie here from Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. i own a ta28. im nw d 2nd owner. got it as a birthday gift frm my father when i was 16. im a big fan of classic celica as i was raised with it.

    here's some pics of my car.
    this is some pics of my celica dated back in d 70's. when my father first bought this car.



    with another friend and his celica




    this is d pic of my car when i first got it. everything is still in stock condition. lucky to get this car frm my dad as it was carefully taken care.



    last time, d engine used to look like this.


    after i got this car. changed it to 4age.


    nw my car is under project. plan to rebuild it inside out.





    cheers :wink:

    I wondered what happend to that 3T-B engine. Wish I could find a set of those bumpers for a future liftback project I got, also the filler piece between the taillights.
