Hey guys,

Im finally back with a car im proud to have. I was on here had my te31 corolla 4 door. Traded it for a 85 Rx7 GSL-SE. And the other day made a nice trade to get back to basics and i was able to snag a 76 Celica GT :D i love this puppy.

140k Original miles lots of paperwork and docs.

Brand new ENKIE COMP's with new Falkens. 15x7 :D

The paint is pretty bad alot of oxidation and chips. A few TINY rust spots. But over all its very awesome. The interior is pretty beat as well But the Cluster and the gauges are all good Which makes me very happy.

Cant wait to get the deck lip and front air dam as well as flares and paint it a nice forrest green :D

me with my buddies 86 :D

Not a bad succession of trades. I was wondering why I haven't seen your corolla around on here. Nice Celica.

Hey guys been a while. Heres my "build" thread from another forum. As Ive been bouncin around.
THIS IS FROM A FEW WEEKS AGO BEFORE PAINT JUST PUT ON NEW BODY PARTS


Current wheels are
XXR 002s 15x8 0et

Cant wait to get something newer. Or maybe just powder coat them. Im not sure exactly what im looking for right now. They look pretty good im just not too big of a fan of black or gun metal color wheels.

Current Mods
-------------------
T3 front coilovers
T3 camber plates
MK2 Supra springs rear
86 Camaro KYB shocks rear
MK2 MR2 KYB's up front
JDM Honey comb grille
Pacesetter header
Straight pipe
Toysport Air dam
Toysport Trunk spoiler
Toysport front smiley bumper
Toysport rear smiley bumper
NRG SHORT Scion/Toyota hub
NRG quick release
NRG HUB LOCK
GRIP ROYAL Macbeth steering wheel


Currently undergoing a TON of body work. Love it. Its come a long long way. Took it out last night after I finally got all the fiberglass body parts attached. Was a huge relief. Had people breaking necks the entire drive.

This weekend the car is going in for more body work and final prep for primer. Then the following Wednesday its getting painted white again. The current paint job was sooooo bad I have no idea how it every passed as a paint job. So many runs. Previous owner issues. JESUS H CHRIS T.

Cant wait to snap pics for you guys of the final product.

Fantastic! Nice find!

Car looks terrific after all the work you did. Good job.

I had a '77 GT liftback that I regularly miss. I daydream about getting another and swapping a 4AGE 20v
