General Information

gt 2.2 5spd
was told by a friend there was a celica gt4 sitting, and it was abandoned. we pulled it from a field where the previous owner had left it, after she had more or less destroyed the thing, and found it was only a gt, but hey free car(after filing for an abandoned title of course)! the drivers side front fender had been bent in, the bumper had been put on wrong, the headlights were adjusted way off, the interior was so dirty and wet from improperly installed window seals there was a plant growing on the passenger carpet, the radio harness was hanging all over the place, the roof had been in some sort of hail storm and had half assed globs of bondo slapped on, and it was riding on a donut where the rear tire had blown up. the paint was a rainbow of mismatched colored body panels, peeling clear coat, rusty sheet metal and pink body glaze. it had been sitting for like 5 years, and after draining the gas, changing the oil and using a little starting fluid she fired to life... barely. she was running rich and seemed to leak oil from everywhere. having sat for so long, the cv axle boots dry rotted and cracked and needed replacing as well. over time i've been cleaning, fixing, un-destroying the thing and its almost ready for new paint.
