Thanks people for the comments.
It gets me out of bed at 4am to do a few hours on it before work. Maybe. Well probably not, but sounds good.
My new ride in addition to the real bad ass is this yoda.
Now please pardon the shift in brand.
Ill have a link some stage soon to the appropriate site for the continuation of this cars build and development.
Its a 1973 Toyota Celica Ta22
It has a 4cyl 2.0l engine from a ST215 Caldina GTT (the ugly station wagons).
Engine is totally stock internally.
All power adders are external.
The chassis has heaps of work done to it, coil overs Bilstein and Carrera rears.
Camber, castor plates, bushes, Evo 8 brakes, LSD...
It has 400hp at the rears, it weighs complete all fluids/fuels 1060kg.
TD06-25G turbo, 800cc injectors, Link G4 ECU, Elec water pump, elec boost control etc...
It will teach me plenty about what driveability Im after in the zed.
This car requires some work before Im completely happy with it.
Car is completely legal and engineered.
Not ready for the PepperTree just yet
Just to state the obvious, I didnt build this car. I bought it as is.
I will start mucking about with it. It will be kept driveable while I put the zed together.
Other random car shots that were in the same location as the collected TA22,
FD3S race car 550hp @ wheels,
Corvette, engine blew up soon after purchase, go figure...
1UZFE & GT35R would work well....
To replace the love of the TA22, try a Datsun 1200 instead,
12A PP, mid mounted, flat floor = lovely car!
