My new to me used Toy

Hello all,

I've been on the forum but I decided to pick up one of my dream cars from the Gran Turismo days. Figured you guys would appreciate it:

1994 Toyota Celica GT-Four WRC Edition 1 of 2500:







I've already been doing some restoration which is needed on a 25 y/o car. I'll keep this thread updated.

That's sweet! Congratulations! You may need to educate folks like me - I'm pretty familiar with Toyotas, but not with this particular model. Enjoy!

Thanks for the kind words. Toyota was really into the World Rally Championship in the '80s and '90s and they used Celica's and Corollas to compete. In order to compete, they had to produce so many homologated street versions of the car. So my car 2500 models were produced but the actual model life went from 1994-99. My car has all the bits the Rally car did which isn't much more but it's unique. Here's a picture from WRC:



Some specifications:

Engine: 3sgte 2.0L Turbocharged. HP: 252-255hp based on octane

Drivetrain: 5spd manual transmission mated to 4wd system. Center and rear LSD. TQ split is 50/50

It has Supra TT Front and rear Disc brakes from the factory as well but the rotors are 315mm front and rear.

It comes with Toyota's Super Strut suspension which is basically a strut and double-wishbone in one:



It's a really fun car. I plan on running it in autocross and ice racing during the winter.
