This is my first Camry, I usually live in the Celica world. I'm a heavy Toyota guy. In my time driving, I have owned a 1986 Celica GT (Sweety Pie), my wife's 1996 Chevy Cavalier (Baby), 2001 Celica GT (Haven), 1988 Celica ST (Cherry), 2001 MR2 Spyder (Little Miss), 1989 Celica ST (Blue Bomber, registered classic), my wife's 2003 Ford Escort ZX2 Deluxe Edition (Cinnamon), 2004 Celica GTS (Dragoon), 1991 Corolla DX (Dabbing Unicorn), and finally my 1998 Camry LE which doesn't have a name yet.

Not a single car that I have owned has stayed stock. To me, every car is a project car. I have done the simplest things like wheels and audio all the way to the more complex like projector retrofits. I will post a link to my Imgur once it's done uploading all the images.

I have driven a lot of different cars. From stock Geo Metro all the way to fully tuned 2018 WRX STI with over 800 HP. Automatics to Manual. 3 on the Tree, 4 on the Floor, whatever the hell you'd call a 6 speed haha.

I am mechanically inclined. I just recently finished my contract of Active Duty Army as a 91B mechanic. And I just got a job, start tomorrow, at a trucking company as a diesel tech. Working on them big rigs.

Or not. I have no clue how to share Imgur albums. I guess I'll just have to reupload everything to photobucket :/

Use the attach files button bottom left of the reply box. You can choose if the images are thumbnails that link to larger images, or the full sized images show directly.

Another way is use BBCode tags this is already formatted for you by imgur the 2nd to bottom option when you click an uploaded image. Or you can simply link to the imgur album.

I was trying to link the entire album. It's over 200 images. Will that still work?

200 images in a single post is not practical, link directly to the album for example here's one I made a while back

Getting the actual link is a bit confusing I went to the album clicked embed then share. If you want to post specific images get the URL by hovering over the down arrow symbol, click get share links then copy the BBcode.

edit - this forum is smart enough to enable clicking through the album images right in the post, or of course you can click and go directly to the full album.

You should put 2 side solex or 2 side webers , cams on that celica and you will have a nice sounding car. LOL COOOOKKKE !!! Too bad celica could not compete on the quarter mile back then. I think they have a weight issue. They are fast but just could not make money on them. LOL I am talking about the late 70 celica.

Only Celica that was truly fast was the All-Trac/GT-Four. The ST165 is a beauty I've tried to find one for years.

Whoa, didn't even notice. I sometimes see GT-Fours on my local CL, but they're along the lines of Nissan 240s: a clean, unmodified one is a unicorn.

RHD doesn't do it for me, can't get past it.

celica is intimidating in the late 70 but it was just heavy. I had a nissan 240sx. 92 . Bought it brand new. Sold it as a salvage title 2010 with the perfect original clutch. 200k miles. with a blown head gasket. Sold it for $500. A hispanic kid bought it and fixed it up. He sends me a picture of how it looks after he fix it up. The car has been in 2 major car accident. What killed it was not the accident but this small pipe that leaked coolant. It overheated and killed it. I was patching the leak with waterweld. lol It held up for 2 years and then would leak again. You can see the pipe on my link number 4 and 5 pictures
http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/forum/forum/garages/datsun-nissan-garage/3178-indy-s-710-and-510/page2 I might be the only car that this leak happen. For that leak I had to replace the whole intake manifold. So I just waterweld it. LOL I did change the manifold but I don't remember why it overheated but we were on our way to disneyland. I made money on that car from insurance. I still have the bumper skin and foam I am selling right now. How much do you guys think I should ask for it.

I had a 1977 Celica GT hatchback bought it from a couple that let it sit for years, once cleaned up it was beautiful. The engine burned oil did a quick and dirty rebuild new rings and seals (no touching the cylinders) it ran perfectly after that. Was quite fast actually could smoke the tires in 1st and 2nd gear 20R has nice torque. I greatly regret selling the car. It looked exactly like this

Thanks for the directions on how to post the album. I was never trying to post individual pictures to this, that would take forever.

My Celicas don't have carbs.

Production model wise, the 7th gen GTS with 6 speed is the fastest, followed by the ST 205. All of the GT4s have been very heavy. Now with modifications, the GT4 is faster.

71Corolla, look at st165.net. Sometimes they pop up there. I have been hunting for one myself but every time I find one they are either show up when I don't have the money or they are too broken down.

A first gen Celica was not heavy. It was a little under powered is all. They look like fairly big cars in pictures but when you see one in person they are only a little larger than a MR2.

1977 Celica GT Liftback is my dream car. I want to drop a 3sge BEAMS from an Altezza with 6 speed into it.
