A short Hello from an occasional Visitor

Post by thetoyman75 » March 20th, 2010, 3:41 pm

Hi Fellow Celica addicts.

I dont generally post here but I do pop in and have a look around so it only seemed fair to throw up a brief introduction. Those of you familiar with http://www.toymods.org.au will know me as the long standing Club president.

My Toys are not Just Celica's But I have a 1973 TA22 that has been sitting Idle for the best part of 10 Years. This year might be the year I finish it... Maybe next year ;)

Your white 73 was the first 1stgen celica I had ever seen. It is the single reason that i'm a 1stgen owner today. There was a picture of it on an acura website in a first car ever owned thread. I have only been aware of the existance of these cars for 11 months. Welcome!!

Oops - 6 Years between posts, I guess I should make a bit of an update.

The toy collection has changed a little, as they tend to do. The White Celica pictured above (The Unicorn) is actually back on the road after 14 odd years. It was stripped back to a bare shell and reborn to be more period correct. 2/3T-G Hybrid, Stock interior with period roll cage.

Image

Image

Image
Love my Custom stripes as done by DavbyDesign. (And yes he can post world wide)

I also have a 1976 TA23 GT Replica restored to full GT trim. It was a full bare metal restoration. We even repaired and repinned the wiring loom. And yes, the stripes are more of DesignbyDav's work. (Its great when a graphic deigner is a Celica fan with a perfectionist streak )

Image

Image

Image

The engine bay and interior shots are obviously mid restoration.

I also have another 1973 TA22, 2T-C powered Auto sitting on 13 x 7" rebel racing wheels. Pics to follow when I get some recent ones. Its only just back together (not finished, but back on the road)

Popped in for an Update.

Still have the White 22 and the Mustard 23 (And a few in the build)

I recently added a TA27 Gt to the collection too :)

Dragged out of a shed on a Vineyard after 11 years of storage.

Then took it to Classic Japan exactly 4 weeks later.

The JMR Headstuds were a product he and I commissioned to be made so we could clamp the heads down better for boosted applications.
And they were an awesome thing.

We have since located a set of ARP head studs we can use. You need to modify the head of course as there Head bolt posts sit to close to the rocker cover to allow clearance for a nut and washer beneath the Rocker cover.

Hit my up over on the GarageCelica or 1stGenOfficial Facebook groups at any time.
