Accelerating (7/13)



  1. Years ago my dad was on a trip to Sweden and was on a boat heading to Malmö and sat down for the journey in a random seat. He nodded and said hello to the guy across from him and they started chatting. Turns out he’s from Belfast, the other fella. So’s my dad. They chat on, one buys the other a pint. The guy asks my dad why he’s going to Malmö and he tells him. The guy says he’s going to a music festival somewhere. They keep chatting, about Belfast, people they know in common, the local characters and so on. A few more beers are exchanged (£4 a “pint” my dad told me) and they had a great chat. Totally oblivious my dad.... just two fellas from Belfast having a beer. Just as they were getting ready to disembark, the guy says you don’t recognise me do you ? No says my dad. Fella says I’m Van Morrison (the singer for you youngsters).....
  2. Thanks Paul, MR2.....that’s why I didn’t recognise it Thats a useful link too. Thanks
  3. Got this indicator lenses in some parts but don’t recognise it ? Freshly opened by me. What model is it for ? Thanks
  4. Whilst sat on the train in Japan, passing a large storage yard of cars, not sure where but somewhere south west of Tokyo.....I got thinking of importing a JDM to UK. Which Auction sites do people use ? Had a quick look and found JDM Auction Watch and Japan Car Direct plus various others......any suggestions or recommendations? Or experience of it ? Thanks Shipwrecked
  5. I must admit to a few in my younger years but not celica related I'm afraid. The pizza box, household polyfilla and 2 cans of touch up to rebuild a rear door the day before a big Ford show is my most memorable one.....no one noticed and the car even went to its grave with its very own slice of Domino's
  6. ST185 Carlos Sainz Steering Rack related question but I thought I'd ask everyone as possible answer might not necessarily be from 5th gen car. The Power Steering Rack in question..... Existing track rod/drumstick.... Max. Diameter 15.12mm (inside boot) Outside boot 13.79mm The question is.... Is there an alternative thicker track rod/drum stick of a minimum diameter of 16mm or larger from another model/gen. of Celica or Toyota for that matter, that will fit in its place ? i.e. Thicker shaft but swivel ball the same size but length not important. Don't want to sleeve existing rod, weld it etc. etc., or reduce thread diameter, just want to cut it and thread it (M16x1.5) and fit a modified track rod....like this.... Maybe there's a later rack that would do the job or provide bits. Anybody know if such an item exists ? Thanks
