    By the way, it's a 1976 Celica ST. Not as fast as the Z, but it's not supposed to be either. You CAN make them fast, I would say just as fast as the Z. But remember that it's a 4 seater coupe, whereas the Z is a low slung sports car.

    Are you in the US ?

    Where are the mirrors ?

    EDIT: And the wipers......

    I am not trying to be a jerk or anything but I personally thing the car is hideous. The front end looks like a wannabe mustang and I really dont like the back of it either. So I guess I can say that the door looks nice :unsure:


    However, you can also consider this....my favorite car is a Taurus SHO and lots of people thing they look disgusting. Perhaps I just have a different taste. Especially since everyone else seemed to like it.

    Not to be rude or anything, but who's gonna buy that Celica, only to sink $10K on a 2JZ engine, R154 tranny, ECU, driveline, and who knows what other associate components? I'm just sayin'...
    The Celica is nice, tho'

    Uh... the R154 mates to the 7MGTE engine... not the 2JZ.

    Listen up, Bitches.

    First things first. Looks like a Mustang ? You bet. The Celica was directly copied from the Mustang / Shelbys. From Day fucking one. The 20R motor was a direct MG Copy, and the 18RG (as found in that little charm) is directly copied from Austin Healey. Shit, most of the parts are swappable.

    It's what the Japanese DID. They took someone's design, and made it awesome. The 22R is one half of a Ford 289. The Bodies are so close to Mustang bodies that it was tempting to call the Datsun 210 / Celica / Mazda Cosmo "Japan's Pony car".


    As far as finding parts - Dime a dozen. Toyota Auto Parts (TAPrecycling.com) will be glad to help. Mostly cheap as well.

    Modern motors don't belong in these cars. You're talking about a 2JZG(T)E.. it won't fit. You're more likely to stick an american V8 in the sucker, and bolt it to the stock trans (And it DOES bolt up to the Ford V8... remember what I said about copying?). You could even mate the Ford T5 to the rear... or go one step further and put a 289/302/351 to a T5, to a custom drive shaft to a complete Ford 9" rear and you're driving a high performance Mustang at half the weight, and twice the surprise.

    7MG(T)E engines bolt to the W58. As far as the R154 - Don't know, don't care. New Toyota sucks.

    -> Steve

    Let the classics rock your face.
