Ok so my car is a RA21 1973 celica. She has a few mods both on the body and on the engine. She has the TRD style one piece spoiler, the front chin spoiler, fiberglass flared fenders in the front and molded fiberglass fender flares in the back to match the front. The cars color is Subaru WRX Rally Blue. The engine is a 18rc which came stock in 1973. Mods are as follows msd ignition, a holly carb, K&N intake, Flowmaster exhaust and a 5 speed transmisson (idk which one), all 1973 were 4 speed stock . The wheels are now OG Rota RB 13x8 running Herclues in the back ans Sumitomo in the front. I bought the car in march last year from a friend. Used to have cracked fender flares, huge dent on hood from hitting a dear, some suface rust and random damage here and there. Heres a few some pics of the car showing the car before body work was done on itlast summer then after it was done. Also the pics at the very bottom are of it at Motoring J Style Carshow 2008 in Vallejo,Ca Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

some fatter tyres, more "lips" and offset for the sport rims would be great.

The 15 are still only 7 inches wide. Its what I have on my RA21. I think I want another set for the Cressida... Or I just may do sportmax to have the wider rim (cheap too)

Its a 4-1 header design unknown maker. these are very rare in the usa for this engine.Ive been into celicas over 2 years now and have only seen 1 other for sale before so i knew i had to get this one. I also got some new mirrors for the celica since ive always on had one so now i finally have 2 :D Image old mirrors Image new mirrors Image

today i picked up some suspension stuff up from a guy locally. they are parts he used to have on his celica back in the 80s. They are oldskool fully adjustable Koni shocks and Interpart Lowering Springs made by Mulholland. From the research I did it seemed like alot of the Datsun guys used to run this set up on the Zs and 510s back in the day. Does any of the older guys have more info on the springs? here are pics of what i got Image Image Image

I drove the celica to skool a few weeks ago. Everybody likes this car! :D everyone who road in it made the comment it was like being in a go kart :lol2: also that the car is small for how tall i am. Im 6ft. took some pics while there with some of my friends and of just me with the car. The guy with the benz usually drives a LS400 but his car was in the shop so had to use his parents spare car. All around though a great day. heres the pics Image Image Image Image Image Image
