Im searching for my first car and the Celica is my first choice, however, its not easy to find where I am from.
The car will be a daily driven car and it will never see a track. The highest speed limit where Im from is 80km/h - top speed and 1/4 mile times are irrelevant, good acceleration is what I think will make the most fun ride.
The perfect celica in my eyes has a nice paint job preferably in black color, sunroof and gts engine. This is what Im scouting for in the market but it is very hard to find in my country and import is really expensive.
The plan is to supercharge the engine and buy coilovers and tires/rims to lower it some.
New large brake discs, street racing clutch and flywheel will be installed as the original parts wear out and need replacement anyway.
Kamanari body kit will be installed, Im going for a clean look.
My dilemma is its easy to find 1zz-ge engine cars that fits my criteria well, but 2zz-ge cars are rare and expensive. Cheapest one is 26,100$ and it does not have any mods, no stereo and no sunroof. I could easily buy a lotus elise for the cost of that car and some mods..
I love Lotus Elise and wish I could afford one as a second car^^
If I could use a GT car and swap engine, or supercharge it or something similar it would be a nice trade off.
There are many possibilities, what would you do?
