Hello from Oakland

I've been the owner of this 1975 Celica for more than 10 years. 10 years of saying I will get this project done next summer.

A picture of my 1996 Chevy Impala in its better days. Recently got into an accident that will ultimately force me to get rid of what I thought would be a keeper for life.



With the insurance money, I'm going to get the Celica back on the road. I've had a 1UZ swap idea for a while now. Bought a W58 adapter back in 2009 for 1500+. A bit sad to see how much cheaper an adapter cost today. Recently went to the junkyard during the the 50% sale and got a steering column, crossmember, and tierod-less power rack and pinion off a 1985 SR5 corolla. So the ball is rolling

I've been doing a lot of research for this project and always find myself to this forum that I could not access unless I'm a member. I want to thank a member from celica-gts.com forum, yella81celica, who guided me towards the right people to be apart of the 1stgencelica forum. Also, I don't want to put real names out there, but I guess I'll refer them as the Santos family, for making me a member. Thank you

Performance options is a place that you need to stop by in your area, if they are still around , they have most of the technical support, information and parts that you may require. I was recently back in Oakland and failed to stop past that business, so any updates on your build will be great.

Welcome to the forum.
