1987 Toyota Celica GTS 2.0L 3s-ge from North America
Safe, reliable, bulletproof
Put new engine in after previous owner had done damage to the head and cams.
It sat for a year, so I put all new brakes on it, and of course tires.
This car is an animal; other than the heat issue 95% of them had, it was great. Once I fixed the heater problem, the car was great regardless of the weather.
New rad and ball joint after that.
It needed new bushings, but I just kept going since I was planning on them in the spring, once I put my other car and bike back on the road.
CAR IS NOW NOT GOOD. New Years night the car lost control and hit two guard rails, and 3 outta four corners of the car got hit. It drove me out and home and around still. Starts drives and runs like it always had. THIS CAR IS AMAZING, I can't find another with the body it had.
PUT WINTER TIRES ON IT AS I only had two on the front, and now I lost a classic.
If I would not get in trouble, I would still drive it; fenders, hood and all banged up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

UPDATE! took the hammer and crowbar to it. Looks almost back to mint except for rash and a broken signal on the left with the hood not quite fitting properly.
The rear end pushed in at least 2-4 inches, but all suspension and geometry are great.
Best damn car I've had. Ill keep it on the road instead of getting my other car into the snow.
