1987 Toyota Celica ST!

I found this on craigslist for 500$ so i bought it haha.


Soon i will be selling my Cobalt, and getting one with a manual gearbox or possibly one of the '14 civics. But before i get one i wanted to teach my wife how to drive stick in something that wont matter if she hurts it. It has 171k miles on it. Was sideswiped on the drivers side. Currently inspected until December 31st. Has a brand new set of Kuhmo tires on it. Leaks oil pretty bad from the drainplug and everywhere else. I plasti-dipped the hood, bumpers, deck lid, roof and front fenders. I will post a before picture first. Let me know what you think of my turd.

Nice, I love pop up headlights. It's got that Initial D vibe to it.

Keep the hood black and paint the rest white.

Use a roller and put some Japanese tofu shop decals on it.

Never seen Initial D? It's a pretty good anime/manga. It's basically about the prodigy son of a tofu maker and former race car driver that reluctantly gets involved in street racing. At first people laugh at him because he drives an old stock relic of a car (that Toyota up there), but he defeats much more reputable and powerful cars because of his inhuman skill and car control. Makes for an interesting read.
