My first car was a '73 celica st. I got it when I was 16 in the spring of 1984. It was white with an aftermarket cloth rollback roof. It was sweet. I replaced the shocks/struts and put some low profile fats on it and drove the local mountain roads like I was on rails. My brother threw the timing chain at about 100mph and destroyed the topend. I replaced the 18rc (??) with an 18rg (??) 1.8l DOHC engine out of a Tokyo taxi. It went even faster than stock. I foolishly sold it after 3 years and regret it to this day.

My next toyota was an 79 4x4 pu. It rusted out from under me but still ran like a champ.

I had a few years of toyotalessness. The dark VW years.

My next was a '91 corolla 4 door sedan. Plain jane but fun. I sold it with 358 000 km on the odometer. All I ever did was tires, brakes, muffler, thermostat and shocks.

The '91 was replaced a '95 corolla wagon. My wife still drives it with almost 400 000 km on it. The engine is itred but it has never needed anything but tires, brakes..... and oil lots of oil lately.

From '81 to 03 my dad owned 3 Celicas which I drove regularly. He recently sold his '91 gts. I wanted it but it was impractical with a wife & 3 kids so I sadly turned down the opportunity to buy it for dirt.

Sadly, I currently drive a Ford Diesel. It is an adequate vehicle but it aint no Toyota. I just wish the Tundra came with a diesel in Canada. I sure would like to replace my Corrola with a Camry wagon diesel but they do not exist in Canada. I saw one in yurp and wanted to import it but it never happened.
