Please have feedback before buying, SERIOUS buyers only.  Will ship if buyer sets it up.  Payment must be made in full before I ship though. 

I am only selling due to needing a newer 4 door car.  I am not making money on this (With purchase price and things I've bought for it)  Which I am including.

 1977 celica fastback, copper brown, 5 speed, 96k original miles with window Louvers.

This is an original ARIZONA CAR but I bought this from a gentleman in Wisconsin who kept it in a temp controlled storage unit during the salty winters (He owned it for only 3 years). I drove over 600 miles there and 600 miles back (In the car). Did just fine. I looked for over 3 years before I found one I wanted....Now I realize I just need something newer. After several car shows I have to say goodbye.

The car is mostly all original except for paint.

I always get a compliment no matter where I go. Also lots of attention at the car shows.

The car has had the following done to it (and more that I can't remember).

Newer tires
New fuel pump
New rear wheel bearings
carb redone
new valve cover seals
new carpet (Not installed)
New window seals

and much more

I am including a BRAND NEW weber 32/36 carb (Paid 300$ for it alone) Still in brand new redline box.

The car will need the following:

Drivers seat recovered (Passenger seat is nice)
Center console bezel is cracked
and A pillars are a little crackly
Small spot on door interior
The front brakes are squeaking so they will need done soon (just normal maintenance)

The dash and rest of the interior is nice.  It's an import from 1977, it's in good shape for being this age and probably one of the best you'll find.

Exterior is rust free, underneath is rust free and you're welcome to check it out. No leaks of any kind from what I've seen. Which is almost unheard of with any old car. Has a fresher oil change (About a month old).

The paint could use something done to it, the guy who did it before did a decent job BUT looks like there was dirt in the primer and he just painted over and left lots of small bumps/ruff areas on the roof and drivers side.

Under the hood is stock other than I took a day to polish the stock valve cover. Will look really good once the weber is installed.

Asking 7,900 FIRM cash, cash is king and I'm not dying to sell it. I may die IF I sell it though..... These cars are only going up in value.

Rod Millen to face Monster Tajima in Electric Division of Pikes Peak Hill Climb

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 18:27:00 EST

The 91st running of the Pike's Peak International Hill Climb is scheduled to begin on June 30. Like last year's event, the 12.42 mile course - fully paved these days - starts at 9,390 feet elevation and doesn't stop climbing until it reaches an impressive 14,110 feet (the air is so thin up there that the FAA requires pilots to use oxygen at that altitude).
There will be an assortment of internal combustion machines racing to the summit, entries from France, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Sweden, Brazil, Canada, Great Britain, Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland and Belgium, but all eyes will be on the electric showdown between Rod Millen and Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima, from Japan. 61-year-old Millen is a familiar name to Toyota racing fans, and he will be driving the Toyota TMG EV P002 (it won the Electric title last year), while Tajima will be again piloting the Monster Sport E-Runner (which was forced out of the field last year after a fire broke out).
Other entrants include Rhys Millen driving a 2013 Hyundai PM58OT and Paul Dallenbach, who will be driving Millen's Hyundai Genesis Coupe (it set the all-time speed mark last year).

Shuttle-hauling Tundra finds permanent home in science exhibit

Mon, 03 Jun 2013 17:44:00 EST

The idea of lifting a full-size pickup truck completely off the ground by hand might seem as likely as, say, said pickup truck towing a 150,000-pound space shuttle, but... hurray, physics! The same Toyota Tundra that towed the Space Shuttle Endeavour to its final resting place at the California Science Center is now on permanent display there as an exhibit that shows how a lever works.
Like all levers, this exhibit uses a fulcrum allowing people other than Superman to lift the 5,625-pound pickup (plus an extra 1,000 pounds for the rig). That's almost as impressive as the Tundra pulling 17 times its rated towing capacity back in October. Regardless, Toyota is once again cashing in on the publicity stunt and visitors to the science center get a live demonstration of a simple machine - we call that a win-win.

Despite slow sales, no new Scion models in near-term pipeline [w/poll]

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 13:00:00 EST

According to a top Toyota executive, the Japanese automaker will not be introducing any fresh Scion models in the near future, Reuters reports. As of August, Scion sales for this year were down 1.6 percent from 2012 and accounted for only 0.3 percent of Toyota's overall US sales. And last month, Toyota Motor Sales USA Senior Vice President Bob Carter informed the 1,000 dealers who carry Scion that they can drop the brand without penalty.
However, never fear - Carter has assured that, while nothing new is coming for at least six months, the company is still very committed to the quirky Scion brand. Toyota launched Scion, which targets the youth market, in 2003, and sales peaked in 2006. The brand currently has five models, with the 2013 best-sellers being the FR-S sports coupe followed by the tC sedan and xB hatchback.
What do you think about Toyota's decision to hold off on introducing new or refreshed Scion models? Are they heading in the right direction, or does this spell doom for the funky Gen Y brand?
