I will join in, here is my 76 when first found...
Image


Here is how she sits today.
Image


New 85 RA64 GT. 300K single owner, just did the timing chain and such on it. Still ticks a bit, valves need just a bit of tweaking.
Image

She has a few dents and dings along with some rust, but she is in really good shape for close to 300,000 miles on the odo. I have added a bit since this pic.
Image

Engine compartment certainly doesn't look like a 300K car...

Nice Celicas guys! Here's my not-so-mint Toy. Owned it almost 6 yrs now and have spent quite a bit upgrading and keeping it alive.

The day I brought it home back in March 2006

Image

This was the original motor which let go due to internal coolant leakage.

Image

86 22R from a 2wd pickup, few minor mods to fit my original EFI

Image

And here's a skip ahead to summer 2011 after all the suspension work and exhaust and stuff. Got wheels from a Supra a few years back to make the car looks proper. She's stored for winter till April for now :(
