I hope it turns out to be a great deal! I already talked him down to $2600 from the $3200 he was askin. $2600 is alot better than the 4-5k ones i've seen advertised, those celicas are really hard to come by around here. I sold my celica back in 91 for $1300, they were plentiful back then. Funny how i found this one tho. I wanted to buy my dads old station wagon off him but i didn't have the room for it. He had ebayed it off to some guy in florida for $3800, i was so sad to see that car go that i couldn't sleep and pulled an all nighter, went out for food 2:30 in the morning and cruised around thinking of all the good times in the ol wagon when i was a kid . In the morning i did a search for the celica on google and that ad popped up! He had posted the add the night before and i was the first to reply . I was actually looking for a 74 celica, same as my old one. This ones a 73, same year as the old wagon Oh wells, I wonder who the guy was that bought the ol wagon, maybe a collector or auction company? He sent a car carrier to pick up the car and truck it back to florida.

Total Est. Distance: 2814.42 miles

Exactly! I won't have to deal with the smog nazzis here in california anymore Anything pre 75 is smog exempt. I want to throw in a modern engine for the reliability and high horsepower. Besides, i'm getting a shiny new car next year and any new vehicle in california doesn't require smog checks for the first 5 years. I have to get a smog check "every" year now on my eclipse

It's been slow going on the project. I bought a used T-56 and had it shipped to the fabricator for a new bell housing to be made. That tranny is as big as the motor . http://projectzerog.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=689
