Car of the Week: ST200 Celica (GT-Four)
So this week I was poking around the internet and I came across a couple picture of some GT-Four Celicas. Now I have always been a fan of turbo AWD cars, which would include the GT-Four. Seeing as America never got them though kind of led me away from them, but they have once again come back up in my head this week.
The GT-Four is just like any other turbo AWD car that has ever really been on the market ever. Two front seats, 1/2 of a back seat, aggressive front end, a nice rear and a gigantic spoiler that no one can tell you is unneeded because it was stock. But seriously.. all turbo AWD cars have that… the Impreza WRX STi (all gens), the Evo (all gens), the 3000GT, hell even the Escort Cosworth RS had these features. Clearly it’s something that a lot of people like and I am no exception.
I guess the point I am really trying to get at is that I want to buy a 6th gen Celica shell and then buy a cut in half GT-Four from Canada and swap all the bits over. Would make for a super fun and unique car. Would also be a super fun project and wouldn’t cost too much.
I don’t know much about the car however, and I am not sure that all the GT-Four stuff would bolt up to the shells we have here in America, so please if you know anything about this, SEND ME A MESSAGE! Forums and the internet can only give me so much information and I only have so much time and patience to dig through them.
