Here's the TTD record at Gingerman from my FR-S. Beat old record by 3+ seconds. Wayyyyy too much push. Do you happen to use your Tacoma to tow your car?

I would love to get my hands on another Early model corolla or celica. I did see on another forum where a guy transplanted a honda s2000 motor into a 1st Gen Celica. He even tucked all the Wires so the engine bay looked super clean.
I help work on a white celica with s2000 motor in it here on Maui it was for sale on Craig's list at one time I think

If you want to restore a car you need to become very educated on your project vehicle. Some people enjoy driving them, some people enjoy working on them. Most cases you'd be money ahead by buying a completed car. Many old cars cost more to restore than they're worth.

I bought my last project car 14 years ago and enjoyed working on it. It was priced reasonable and numbers matching, it was all i could afford at the time. I did everything except exterior paint. Today, I would buy a "done" car. I'm getting to an age where I can't see myself laying underneath the car every weekend.

It's never done...but just got running again after about 2 years of suspension/brake/rear end work. Going to try and drive it for 5-7 years before it gets torn down, repainted, and new motor/trans.
