I've lurked on the site for a few months and have seen some great cars. I currently own '82 & '85 Toyota Celicas and a 1991 Toyota MR2 and I'm looking for inspiration.

Better picture of the 1985

The horizontal lines of the louvers and the vertical lines of the luggage rack are not working for me. I've heard that the louvers for the coupes are hard to come by but I bought both cars with louvers.

Interior (original radio worked but cassette deck didn't)

That is a good drive from here. Do you have problems with rust?

Minor problems now that I've swapped one of my fenders. I still have some rust around my upper windshield that I'm concerned about.

I've never heard of it. Is it a regular meet?

I cleaned up the wheels that originally came on my Celly.

I only have three of these wheels so if you have one or a set for sale hit me up.

I'll keep my eye on out for it. I go through a lot of wheels.

A co-worker gave me a complete set of oem 14 inch steel wheels with beauty rings and center caps. The wheels are in good shape but needed some rust removal and paint. I had the intention of doing the work myself but I'm lazy. I took one to be powdercoated and I just picked it up today. I wanted something simple and I think the results came out good. The photos are not the best because they were taken in my garage in low light.

All assembled

I still need to do some work on the beauty ring but it is a good look. I will be dropping the remaining wheels off tomorrow. Thanks for looking.

You may already know about all of this but there's a vintage car meet in Atlanta monthly.

http://www.importatlanta.com/forums/con ... -2014-475/

After that there's Import Alliance at the end of March.

Then NOPInationals in September in Commerce.
