My 185 GT4 RC import and build

Thu Oct 13, 2016 4:54 am

Hey guys.. so I recently came in contact with a company importing a 1991 Toyota Celica GT4 RC. My jaw dropped as soon as I saw it and had to do whatever I could to snag it. Got finances in order and placed a down payment about a month ago. In the meantime I found some bad history on the vehicle while I patiently wait for the arrival to Tx, US. It was graded R due to a rear end collision and repair/replacement of the rear end and quarter panels. It has been fixed but it was still there. Needless to say I am still excited about it. The boat should be arriving on the 18th-20th of this month. It then gets a full inspection, detail, minor maintaince including information if anything major is wrong. In the meantime while waiting i came across a pair of Recaro Speeds for sale. Couldn't pass up the deal as they will be very fitting for the car.

That's all I know for now and pictures are attached..

Stay tuned for more info when I recieve it!
