  1. Well I have posted my photos in another post. What these images don’t clearly show is that the clear coat is starting to peel away. i am going over the car more thoroughly this weekend. ‘I know that the plastic aprons that came with the car are still in place. The apron under the car has become detached at one point so I plan to put the car up on steel ramps to reattach the apron also I plan replace burnt headlight/fog light globes and I think that the Car will be ready to go. But I am going to have to balance that with other family commitments and the financial constraints. Having driven the car back to Victoria, some 850km, the steering feels tight as does the suspension. The engine has run smoothly the whole way and idles smoothly. I put 98 octane in her. Cruise control works. As does aircon and heater, Dempster front and rear are functional. Braking and handbrakes appear fine with no noise/squealing. Brake pads on the brakes are still fine I believe. Rims don’t have cracks in them. Just have to save up $900 AUS for car rego. 180 for the road worthy cert. and car insurance... $350.00 for 3rd party fire and theft. i wonder if Toyota will sponsor me??????? LOL!
  2. Make sure you find out if the timing belt has been changed if the car has close to 200,000km on the clock. water pump as well.

  4. https://celicahobby.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/forums/8/1/exterior-guides.html I found some PDFs there that you might find useful.
  5. Well This is the Toyota Celica that I travelled up to New South Wales for. The photos do not show clearly where the Duco is peeling. The rear quarter panel have dents on both sides but they are not serious. I am hoping that with some boiling hot water and a plunger I might be able to pop them out. I have found two online pdf’s for this model. If anyone would like them I got them from here. https://celicahobby.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/forums/8/1/exterior-guides.html I hope that everyone finds it helpful.
  6. I see that the club is referred to as TOC.... was there a TIC setup before?
  7. Yes Welcome from another newbie. With any luck i will be driving a blue 2000 Celica ZR manual back to Victoria. 900km drive. Should be good to get a feel for the csr again.
  8. Hi All. Currently typing this up on my way to NSW in Australia from Victoria. I use to own and love driving a manual, '71, Canary yellow, Toyota Celica with Twin webber sidedraft carby, extractors,2 inch exhaust, 6 inch globe mags. It was 1 year away from vintage classification when it was stolen and a tech writeoff in 2000. Took the insurance money and put it into a mortgage. Fast forward marriage,Morrgage, two girls and 19 years of driving an Automatic, I am taking the excuse of my older daughter learning to drive to get myself another one. I treating this as my midlife crissis to get a 2nd hand sports car. As such i am flying up to New South Wales to look at a Blue 2000 model celica ZR. Manual. It was bought by the current owners at Auction. I have performed a VIN number check and it is all clear. It has one key with remote lock unlock on the key. I will need to get another. Is there a sepparate mobiliser fob with it? My plan is to get an Unregistered Vehicle Permit for it. And drive it back to Victoria where I will get a road worthy cert and registered again. I will arrange a covernote from an insurance company. So in any case being 47yo i think all should be fine. I have looked at a number of other Celica's and this one looks to be the best ai can get for $2200.00 AUD. It has done about 235,000 on the odometer. Will send more pics later.
