I've been reading this forum for quite some time, so thought I would be about time to post some information of my own ride.

Model: 1976 Toyota Celica ST, RA23. 18R-C engine.
Condition: Mint. It was restored in aprox 2004 before imported from Sweden.

It took a full day of driving to get her home but it was worth every second. When I bought her there were no upgrades, all stock except for a set of SSR Reverse Mesh wheels. Here's a picture from a break when driving across Norway. Freshly purchased.

Safely parked home.

A photoshoot with Gatebil in Norway. The Supra was mine as well, sold it this spring.

It's so much joy to drive around during the summer.

Here are the latest pictures of the car. From summer/autumn 2012. Some changes have been done as you can see. SSR MK1 wheels, 510 fender mirrors, TRD rear spoiler, Nardi wood steering wheel and exhaust.

Future plans? I've bought a dual Weber 40 setup from Canada which will be mounted during the winter. Searching for a wider set of MK1's to remove spacers, going to lower her more, as well as some maintenance. Hopefully these things will be done within the time frame of being stored inside during the wintertime.

That's a beautiful car. My 2nd gen is still the original factory silver. I like the silver of your car. Maybe a paint job is in the future...

I've always liked the early Celicas.... clean and simple lines.

Your car just looks sweet and I like the resto-mods you
show
