I was pointed this way by a few car guys after acquiring an '82 Starlet.

This car is in immaculate shape. It's truly astounding that it hasn't rusted away.

I'm looking for all the information I can get on these cars. I plan to treat her well. I'm interested in a suspension/wheel/tire change in the future.

on to the pics:

I'll have a few more pics once the weather lets up :tu:

Nice find! Welcome to JNC.

So don't keep us guessing, what's the story on that cherry beaut? How did it survive all these winters? :)

Sorry for dropping out of the picture for awhile. I'm in the middle of moving so things are kinda crazy.

Because it's been so hectic, I haven't really gotten to touch the Starlet yet :(

I did, however, come across a set of Baby Supras (I think that's what they're called...?) at a tire shop and couldn't pass them up. They're actually the exact wheels I was hoping to find for this car.

I've decided to start by sorting the wheels, tires, and suspension, and go from there.
As far as tires, I'm planning on 195/45/14s. Haven't decided on suspension yet.

I test fitted one of the wheels for gits and shiggles today. Even though the ride height is way off, I'm pretty stoked with how it's looking 8)

And a few more shots of the car:

As far as future plans for drivetrain, I can't get my mind off a 16v or 20v. One's thing's for sure though, the powertrain is staying Toyota. :tu:

Go with a 20v I say. They have a bit more power then the 16v. And I got you beat my 77 corolla have a working factory radio and clock.

16v is far cheaper and a simpler fit though and the power difference in practice is not huge.
Cost a 20v would almost cover cams, ITBs and ecu on a 16v and more than close the power gap.

Nice rims, you got there, but they're not Baby Supras. They are regular Celica Supra rims. True Baby Supras only came in a 13in size. They had Toyota rims similar to this in a 14in size, but only the 13in deep dish style of this rim is known as the Baby Supras.

These are Baby Supras:
