    This has the firm potential to being the most bitchin build on here.

    You should do a special edition "Remembering the dragon" grill for his Tercel.

    Right? haha Random find on craigslist, for sure!!! Thanks, man... The main issue right now, is actually finding a good way to build the transmission and transfer case to withstand 200hp+. It looks like the stock diffs can handle up to about 200hp as they are, but the tranny doesn't like anything above 100hp. :eek: So I'm doing my homework like a mad man before I try and get that local silvertop.

    If I can't find any way to build the tranny with out spending more than the worth of the car on it, I'll probably just have to go for a redtop or something with a bit less power.... But heck, anything will be better than the current 65hp. :eek: lol

    The 4wd Tercel is one of my favorite models Toyota has ever made. Can't wait to see your mods.

    The 112 hp bluetop I had in my car was a ton of fun. 8,000 rpm is just awesome even if it is slow.

    It did have no torque at all though. Not sure if that would be a problem given that you're looking to wheel this thing.

    Thanks, man! It's definitely growing on me. :) I'm doing my best to stay true to the nature of these wagons by retaining the 6-speed tranny/transfer case.

    They look really good with the OEM white steel wheels, too.
