2ZZ powerrrrr..... The Celica journey.
So after years of living in Australia and having boring cars, I had reasons to downsize and maybe get something a little more fun...

Hachis are prohibitively expensive now... Kinda makes me wish I had parked mine in a garage when I moved overseas but alas.... So getting one again is sadly not a realistic option...

I've owned two AE92s since moving down here and regret selling the second one which was a really fun car to own. Even those are now skyrocketing in price. Then going slightly newer the cars become boring...

It left two options if I wanted to stick with Toyota. One is the 2ZZ powered Corolla Sportivo that was fairly popular over here, but good ones again are expensive and cheap ones are BAD....

The other option is the 2ZZ powered 7th Gen Toyota Celica. I've kinda ignored this car over the years with only the GT4 sparking an interest, but then a mate of mine forwarded me an add for a car that needed a bunch of TLC but may be a good base.

So yeah, I guess I'll be having some fun fixing this up...

So this weekend Adam came round with some tools and we put the Celica on some jack stands and gave her a full service.

Got my son involved so he can learn how to look after the car as well Smile

Gearbox is still a little winny but fresh gear oil (and properly filled up gear oil) is doing wonders. Will eventually be swapping out a fresher unit.

Ordered a second hand sunroof replacement, once thats in it's time to pull part of the interior apart and fix the sunroof.

Looks like a whole lot of fun! Thumbs up!
I'd wish my son would be equally interested in helping me out. But who knows, maybe soon my daughter will help out her dad instead. Wink
