I figured some of you guys might get a kick out of this!

Here's a pic of my 1972 RA21 Celica. I inherited it from my father. Hes owned it from 1977. She will rest along side of my 89 ST162 Coupe and 88 ST165 (when its competed :D)

Thats a sweet looking RA20 GT (or is it a TA?).

Ive got a RA28...

Looked like this when i bought it (came without an engine)
Image

I started to work on it, removing all the color coded parts (all chrome was painted white.... ewww)
Image

Built up an engine for it (thats a 4L V8 1UZ-FE with R154 manual gearbox)
Image

................. then i bought a ST185 :bangshead: :twisted:

The RA28 has been sitting under covers for ~6yrs now. This is how it now looks :cry:

Very nice!! Mines an RA21, ST trim level. Right now it has a Bluetop 4AGE, Rev happy :D, through out the 80's and 90's my dad had run a few 12A Rotary's in it... He still has the original engine tucked away somewhere.

Finnish your Hatchback!!! That will be one hell of a Celica!! :D
