Noob (sorta) with a toasty ST185

Postby amx » Sat Oct 15, 2011 5:55 pm

Hi from the Pacific Northwest! I've lurked around here for a while, but am just now getting around to posting. I have a couple of Celicas: a '91 ST and a '90 All-Trac which I bought from the original owner last August. I drove the All-Trac daily until this summer, when early one morning the unthinkable happened: the car parked next to me caught fire. I woke up to the sound of my left front tire exploding from the heat, and by that time it was too late to move the All-Trac. So needless to say, the All-Trac is now a rather sizable project, and I'm daily driving the ST, which, well... isn't quite the same. :)

I've been following some of the other projects on here and Celicatech, and gotta say, you guys give me hope. Looking forward to grabbing a lot more info and inspiration off of this site.

Lamont's thread is amazing. I'd seen the short version on CTech, so it was the first thing I looked for after posting here. :notworthy:

This was my car at the beginning of the year. One owner, 115k miles, completely stock. Even came with the original window sticker and all the dealer paperwork.

It looks like this now. The fire made the local news and everything: :roll:

Oh hey! How surreal to see my old intro thread pop back up, haha. Nope, the all-trac is currently sitting in my garage sans motor and still in a whole bunch of pieces. I work on it as I get the time, but it's a slow process. It needs bodywork and paint before I can start reassembling, and I've been dragging my heels getting it done. Yeah, I know...

On the plus side, at least it no longer looks like a burned-out hulk anymore. :)
