Hello from East Bay Area

I've had two classic Celicas. The first I got in high school, I traded a graphing calculator and $50 for it (this was almost 15 years ago before everyone went crazy for them and you could still get one for almost nothing). I had it for a few years when it was hit by a drunk driver while parked in my driveway. The damage was only cosmetic and minor at that but the insurance company still totaled it. At the time it also had a blown the head gasket and fed up with it I made the stupidest decision I've ever made and decided to sell it :banghead: A few years later I realized my mistake and have been searching for another one ever since. Well a year ago I found this beauty up in Washington and bought it immediately.

I recently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and hopefully on Monday I will finally get it licensed (California emission laws are a pain in the @$$). It's bone stock (for now) and the only damage is a Grand Canyon size crack in the middle of the dashboard. I'm planning on completely swapping out engine and suspension, I'm just not sure with what yet.
