ITT 2012: Crowd gathering Celica GT
July 17, 2012 in Events by banpei
For some reason this genuine Dutch Celica did gather crowds continuously:
I think the (very good) reason behind it was that it has a sweet 18R-G engine under its bonnet:
Yes, after 35 years it is still mind boggling how Toyota fitted that engine under the hood of a Celica. And actually this car did not even have this engine when it rolled out of the factory in 1977: it started its life as a Celica ST with a 2T-B engine.
But the owner did more than just swap the engine:
All badges and mouldings have been replaced for the genuine European 2000 GT counterparts!
And the car was in perfect state:
Just look how the brightwork even shines on a rainy day!
And these gold Enkei 92 mesh wheels made the whole car complete!
Just look at that ass! Now that’s a real crowd gatherer! 🙂
