Hello from Los Angeles :)

Post by Quis » May 2nd, 2017, 5:21 pm

Hello everyone! So happy to finally be part of this Forum :D Thank you Mike and Leslie!

About a month ago I bought a 1972 Toyota Celica. My dad had found it at a job he went to look at in West Hollywood, they were redoing a building and garage. They needed to get rid of it so I bought it, so happy I did!
It doesn't run. The car has fender flares and a duck tail. I just love the look of this car, it has a beautiful body. It also has a roll cage in the car :) Would've loved to get info on the previous owner but they told me he had passed away a year ago and the car had been sitting for good while.

I don't know much about Toyotas, this is my first Toyota but I'm eager to learn about this one. I first posted about the car in the Facebook group and I got some good info. From the engine, everything is stock except the 2 carbs and headers.

I really want to take out the engine and swap something else in. Ive been watching a lot of ShaDynasty and Speed Academy on youtube, so now I want to Beams swap lol. So I'm really happy I can read everything on here now! :)

Sorry I don't have pics of my car but heres a video of it. It shows around the car bit and the first rust spot I found in the trunk. The car is not at my house but ill update with pictures soon!

You will be able to sell the carb setup and the header (very hard to find if at all). Welcome to the forum1

Cheers
