Just a small thing. Toyota stamped the book with a 2011 stamp.

Most dealers are using dated stamps now to detect fraudulent service book stamping.

A dated stamp only gets used to stamp services for that year.

In you case it matters not, but I thought I would mention.

In an ideal world I'd keep this and the MG ZR that I sold not long ago with 18k on the clock. In reality I don't have anywhere to keep them. Whilst I love cars I don't really ever get the attachment to keep them as some people do - it's just another I car I can tick off the list as saying I've owned and driven.

Some of the cars on this list I've had for over a year like the P1 (only car I wish I still had!), punto sporting, Ibiza cupra but most I had for 3-6 months and got bored.





Don't get me wrong the Celica is nice but I'd happily take the profit and put it into the next mini do up and sell.

End goal would be to save enough to buy a RR Sport HST TDV8 and then keep it for ever!

Toyota Celica VVTi Dynamic



Not prefect but better as we've managed to remove the dent on the bottom half.



Will remove the trim on the inside along with the speaker and try giving it a firm wack with a rubber mallet as the sucker would only hold for so long before loosing suction.

Damn, what a transformation! I love threads like this - starting with a sort looking motor and with a quick and distinct turn around.

You should take it back round to the guy you bought it from and show him the progress!

I can't believe you managed to get all that fence rash out just with a quick buff - poor car has probably had that on it for years and you got rid of it within minutes!

With the shape of the dent I'm not sure you'll ever get it perfect, but the panels on there cars are quite soft, so you might be lucky.

Good luck!

Great buy! I had the VVTL-i 190bhp and it was one of the best cars I had. Fault free and sold it with 190k on the clock and it would still smoothly rev to 9000rpm.

I've got a set of facelift tail lights if you decide to keep and modernise the back. Also got a K&N panel filter I think, plus the single din CD conversion bracket.
