Totally understandable. GTT's are also an option and are cheap as chips now. Hard to find a decent st205 that hasn't been thrashed, high km's or had terrible body kits attached

Haven't driven it since March 2010...

For some reason, it didn't seem that long lol. Time is flying too damn fast.

I'm not really a fan of the st215 but yeah it would have to be a pretty nice st205 to bother with it. Looking back on my gt4 ownership experience I think I would do a DP, better intercooler, raise the boost and maybe lower it a bit and call it a day. Thats more or less what I did with my gen 3 mr2 and I got more enjoyable k's out of that than I ever did out of the celica.

For now the 350z is keeping me entertained especially on the corners.

My 165 is back on the road as a DD. Was off for 2 years, much longer than I usually let her sit.

I drove my ST165 to work today and every day since I got it. Oh and I just drove to McDonalds a little bit ago. I want to have more fun with it tho so I am ordering a 205 swap on Friday. Then I can have a spare good running Gen 1 motor in my garage to poke at :)

I havent driven either my red or white one in about 3 years. My civic has been entertaining me very well so my 165s have been sitting in the garage. My motivation came when I visited them and the red one had rat droppings everywhere on the hood, roof, engine. Seems like a family of rats were living on and in it so I said enough is enough, time to bring it back to life. Started up on its first try now i cant wait to drive her again 8)

Since about august 2010! Wow sucks to think about how long its been sitting. Bought the car in BC in 2009, was sitting at a dealer for about a year before that. Started driving the 2 days home to Winnipeg, got just passed calgary when my turbo started squeeling like it was being attacked by a lonely hillbilly. Turned out the engine seals had dried out and I had dumped all the oil on the highway. Got oil in it in time to save the engine but the turbo was fried. Got it home, bought a used turbo which blew its seals a month later (would have been great to smoke screen the cops with :p) got another used turbo only to dicover it had bent fins so didn't boost as much as it should, but started autoxing it anway in the summer of 2010. I guess running low on oil hurt the motor after all cus it starting knocking then died at the very first autox I had brand new tires on it. Been waiting for a new motor since.

But there is hope on the horizon cus I am buying another 88 which is running but needs body work, should get that done to drive it this summer then the restoration of the original can begin and I should have two running 88s by next spring! :D

Watch them rats. I killed 3 of the buggers that were living in the engine bay.

All winter, cause they salt like crazy here. Bought another vehicle so I did not have to spoil the alltrac.

Pretty sure I'm pushing a year now, and even before that I only had it for about a week before stuff went sideways. And before that I never really drove it cause problems kept surfacing.

I've basically never driven my car haha.
