  4. Hi all, I picked up my first Toyota and Japanese car a couple of months back - a 1984 Celica Supra with the 2.8L 6cyl 5MGE engine and manual 5 speed box. I've always been into retro cars and when I saw this for sale I knew I had to get it. I'm not sure if the previous owner was on this website but some of you may recognise the car if so. The spec from standard is pretty impressive - it has electric windows + sunroof, LSD, IRS, digital dash, cruise control, air-con, multi adjustable seats etc. All of which works which is nice on a retro! The condition of the paint, engine, bodywork and interior is amazing for a 25year old car, a real credit to its previous owners - with only a couple of tiny rust bubbles on the boot lid. The car has a couple of modifications - Simota air filter and 3inch intake, full exhaust system (sounds amazing) and much lower suspension than standard (a bit choppy and can make speedbumps a challenge) It really is a joy to drive and puts a big smile on my face every time I do! The 2.8 lump has 168bhp/169lb/ft of torque so it goes well! Fuel consumption is a little scary after driving a series of small engined snotters but it really is worth it for how much fun it is. The interior is very very 80's but again, is in mint condtion and looks pretty much new. Insurance is a bit of nightmare as I'm only 20 and it's a Group 20, but again, it's worth it. I plan on keeping her pretty much as she is, maybe changing the wheels for some period rims but not too sure yet. Enough talk anyway here's some pictures...
  5. Hi, Ive just joined the forum after it was recommended to me so thought I would introduce myself. I'm Phil, 20years old,work in the Armed Forces, and recently picked up my first Toyota, a 1984 Celica Supra. So far I'm loving Toyota ownership and I'm sure this forum will be useful. I will be putting a full thread about my car on the Supra section so feel free to comment it! Here's my Supra: Cheers, Phil
