I think many purists will think this is blasphemy but I think it was a genius who thought of swapping the Honda F20 engine (presumably F20C) into a Celica XX GA61:
Why? Well the F20 is more powerful and has nearly the same torque as the 1G-(G)EU engine but a lot less in weight (almost equal to the 1G-GEU including its gearbox!). Now where can I get one of these babies swapped into my Carina?

I know it is a photoshop, but it is a very scary photoshop: a two door Celica coupe mated with a Celica XX (a.k.a. Celica Supra) nose!
I know the Celica XX is actually a lengthened three door Celica hatchback but somehow that looks totally right and this two door looks totally wrong.

Yesterday I posted up the Tercel AL11 I found on the street and Simon said it resembles the Starlet quite a lot. Yes it does, but it distinguishes itself with one thing, this is something the Tercel can’t do:
Apart from the Starlet I see about half of Toyota’s early 80s lineup: a lot of Levin and Trueno AE86 plus a Celica XX (called Celcia Supra outside Japan)
