I want everyone to list what mods they've done to their celica and if possible where they got the part, price paid, and rating(one to five stars).  If we had a comprehensive list you could refer a lot of people to it to help them out.  Here's an example of what I was thinking.

1991 Toyota Celica GT

Iceman Cold Air Intake *** - www.impactparts.com $195.00
Pacesetter Exhaust      **  - www.seffects.com $209.99

1995 Celica GT

Stock rims - painted white.
Red Tireflys
Red stripes
"got rice?" decals
Bored out cat

That'd be it for now. Everything was done with my own supplies. My Dad works for a bus company who does vinyl decals for buses. That's where I got the paint for the rims, stripes, and got rice decals. I bought the tireflys at kmart for 7 bucks a pair and my friend bored out my cat for me.

No kidding??!!?
Dude I've been thinking of ways to hook my car up interior wise, you are a life saver!!
Check it:
Right now I have full black leather seats in my car but They look totally better with two tone combinations.  I can actually take the covers off it you would like and send them to you and we can go over possibilities.  You did a great job on your car so I would appreciate your input on what might make a great show car.  I've got a dodge viper look on the outside right now (blue with white) and my interior is pretty much black and silver.  I'll email you some pics when I get them and we can discuss ideas.

THANKS!!

4WD emblem ripped from my friend's RAV4: free (took it immediately after, albeit it does look kinda cool)
