Title: A few that matters.
Post by: Grey on January 04, 2013, 10:43:30 AM
Well, a petrol head like me always have the big problems that I want to much cool cars. Well, I'm about to clear out the stable but for now I got these gems... well at least the one that matters!  :ph34r:

My first love, Probe GT Turbo US spec -92

Old and grumpy Granny V.I.P 29er Turbo -81

My all day car. E85 converted Mondeo Ghia Estate -00

Cute but wild! Fiesta S (called FIA) RS Turbo -82

My car to carry things. P100 (Will get a better engine, MT75 and a 8.8" axle) -92

And a video of my long time project, a Toyota Celica -77 that now have a Sierra bottom chassis from the B-pillar and to the front. Plan is to build a real race car of it some day with a 29er power plant.

Some of them have to go and as it looks like right now it's the Probe and FIA. Also the Mondeo will probably have to go some day but for now I need a good and cheep all day driver so I'll have to keep it a little longer.

Except for the Celica / Sierra hybrid in the video TT  ;D You should have gone to spec savers! :wub:


Have not seen one of them for years in the U.K.


A MK1 Fiesta with a Escort turbo motor, that sounds scary lol!

Not sure about the Probe & always thought the P100 was a mistake by Ford but the others are all nice cars & owned similar myself.  :mellow:

The early Celica's you mean?

They are very rare now. Most are rusted away or crashed.

Ahhh I was just looking at the nice Pics ;)

Last time I saw one of those Celicas was in the local scrap yard looking very sad.

It's the same over here but I got this one from a friend that restored her -77 and got this over. It was very rusty in the floor so I just welded it together with a sierra bottom, even the length of both was exactly the same. :)

Here is her Celica, the eSTer version!

Anyways, thanks for the comments. I'm glad that you like the Celica, if I would not be a total Ford freak I would for sure been a Toyota freak!  ;D

3 years continous work did she put on it. Started with only little knowledge of how cars work, but she proves that if you got enough patience and enthusiasm you can make anything real.  ;)
