    Ha ha, I know what you mean. I call them the "spaceship" celica... they aren't my favorite, lol.

    Cool man. I am researching different cars to find me a Daily Driver so I can keep the miles down on the WRX. I know I want AWD but I don't need another turbo car but this one seems cool! I will have to keep my eye out for these in my area!

    Yeah, it's my DD. I picked it up for 3k, so not a bad deal. They are fairly hard to find, took me 2 years, lol. I needed something that would be fun to drive in the winter, because my race car isn't good with the snow, but is still drivable in the summer as a DD if I want, ha ha.

    Here's an engine bay shot. It's raining, so I had to take it from the garage; thus the terrible angle, ha ha.

    Greetings and welcome to the Club!

    Nice unusual (not often seen) car!

    If Mobil 1 has done well for 186k+ why the switch to RP?

    Thanks!!!

    As for the oil choice...
    A few reasons:

    1. I run RP in everything else I own, so naturally I like to only stock up on 1 kind of oil
    2. Mobil 1 has declined in quality in the past few years and doesn't measure up in quality next to RP anymore
    3. Same price where I live, so why not, lol.
    4. I've been running RP on my Nissan's SR20DET for over 4 years (motor now has about 200k miles on it), in which I have been racing every year with it with no break downs.

    Sweet! Welcome to the club. Neat car!

    I test drove a first gen. GT-4 that looked great once, but it turned out to be riddled w/ problems.

    They are hard to find. I was also looking for a decent 323 GTX at the time.

    Awesome purchase dude, I always wanted to project out an alltrac. That 3SGTE is a ****ing sweet motor. I had a 95 Celica GT that I wanted to swap out, I really wish we got the GT-4 in the states, that's one of my all time favorite rally bred cars.

    Super sweet ride. I am jealous. I've always loved the celica all-trac. I wanted to test drive one in 1991, but I was a senior in highschool and the dealer knew I couldn't afford the car so he wouldn't let me drive it. Oh well such is life. Congrats an the awesomeness and welcome to the club!

    Wow, awesome. You're making wish for the snow to start falling here, but I know it's still at least a full month away, maybe even longer.
