  1. My @200 bhp BEAMS -ST162 Gen4, ("CJN").....with its big brother next door..Steve G's ST165 GT4 @ 370bhp: ("Betsy") Wings and Wheels show,Dunsfold Park. Badass Gen4s
  2. GA61 investment?

    MA61's are a pukka looking car,and a little under appreciated IMO. Great shape.Steve C has his metallic blue over silver which is sweet. (Auto ) Darryl who frequents the TEC and whom I know mainly because he happened to be a mate of my brother in law (small world) ,has a mint car or two,his silver MA was at Beaulieu.They're one of the rare cars that I wouldn't worry about changing the wheels on either,they look really good.
  3. GA61 investment?

    Surjit's car is pretty damn immense.Had a new paint job not long ago too,looks peachy
  4. can not believe mr T prices sometimes

    I'm one of the lucky ones,I've got a 1987 car that when you open the tailgate up and give it a light lift with your hand the tailgate glides up nicely and stays there And technically it has a spoiler attached lol. Conversely i bought a 1988 donor car years ago for parts,that had a tailgate that would stay up and lull you into a false sense of security when you were leaning into the back,and then drop like a goddamn stone when you least expected it It was genuinely bloody dangerous. I have this strange vision of you waiting for the courier to drop off your parts,then chasing him up your drive screaming at him and throwing an assorted mixture of razor-clawed tabby cats in his general direction
  5. can not believe mr T prices sometimes

    Those jack prices are really cheap,I'll be looking at another low profile one as I'm going to sell my Liftmaster pro-garage ultra low profile jobbie. I bought it ages back but I went a bit too OTT and its too heavy duty for general use TBH.The caravan sits in front of the garage these days so its too much to carry the thing about with my back .Only used it twice I'll stick an ad on here for it soon,cost me £120 plus posting (its biblically heavy) so ill ad it for around £70 ono collected. The SGS struts have been used by a few guys on here I think havent they?Seem to remember a group buy a while back but not sure if that was with Kent gas Springs though.But yeah some of the dealer prices are ridiculous in their wild variations.I bought a set of Opti fit OEM wiper blades for the gen4 from my Mr T with the retro screw fittings cheaper than a set of budget crud from Euro parts.Ask about a plastic cover for something though and its second mortgage prices
  6. Done a few little goodies on cars over the years to "see me through"... duck tape wrapped around the high pressure PAS pipe on the gen4 to hopefully drive up to Coventry for our first gen4 meet was a good one...then a series of cable ties over the top of it to keep the pressure in,it looked like a dinosaur spine But it did the job,replaced the foam lagging over the top,wiped the dribbles of fluid up ,and took the car for the MOT. It passed
  7. Celicing about this weekend

    Good stuff Rich,sounds like you've bonded with the car already!
  8. got car back last week from paint
  9. Celica sales figures

    A lot of the older gens were sold with the weaker powered engines as well.Ive seen plenty of the US guys with 162s seeing the 3sge as an actual upgrade.Though thats not the only factor.It shows that the figures tell that it was time for change.To be honest Toyota pretty much moved away from anything remotely performance based a long time back,though generally apart from the turbo cars the Celica was never really an out and out sports car,so i wonder which niche the Celica was going to fit into moving forwards.
  10. Celica photo challenge.

    A London Red bus,it could be of the surrounding London boroughs but its got to be a bus,and Red.Single or double decker!Still on the road or a knackered one parked up in a scrappy.
  11. My Gen4 BEAMS with the guys,BMW M3,Integra DC5, Racing Puma Widebody (No. 306/500)
  12. I know theyre made of cheese but the Tech 5's really suit the gen7,theres not too many OEM wheels that I'm overly keen on with Celicas,the Momos on gen5s and the 'Techs are a couple of exceptions though,especially if the car has the right stance.Looks good,that.
  13. Big Thanks to SKINY (stevie)

    Cant you get him to sort his own four out? Lol
  14. Blast from the past....my car pre-modification wearing new paint,Bluewater Kent a few years back.
  15. Terraclean or Terrorclean?

    I have always been in the school of thought that its always possible to dislodge something that has been minding its own business and it could create another issue.Especially in engines that have been running happily for 10+ years.
  16. "We followed you up the road and through the gates,we wondered what car it was" * Looks at rear of car* "Um,it's a Celica"
  17. Nothing but trouble

    Plenty of doggy ones out there,when they get to a certain age and whether they've had a good life or not.To balance it up,i guy we know bought a Civic that seemed a really good buy,they have a good reputation etc but he got rid after 8 months of it being a pain,he also commented on how he couldnt ever seem to find a driving position that suited him either,so horses for courses i suppose.Shame but there you go.
  18. Celica photo challenge.

    its not a recent one so I did wonder if id be blackballed
  19. Celica photo challenge.

    how about this.. If it is,how about your car next to a London bus.
  20. MODIFIED PREFACELIFT v FACTORY FACELIFT
  21. Scrapping car parts?

    We get a scrap guy driving around now and again,stick the metal bits out the front with FREE written on it and itll likely go.
