    I had a GT4 and it was ultra reliable and good fun, that's a nice example, you'll have fun with it.

    Nice! I drove my mates years ago. Kept wanting to step out when planted into a corner.

    A mate of mine is putting the engine and running gear out of a GT4 into a Mini but with out changing the outward appearance of the Mini. Some epic fabrication going into it, 9 episodes on YouTube. Have a look.

    I always wanted to own one and wow it puts a smile on my face just looking at it! The pull and the sound as the revs build is perfect. It does need some tlc like brakes but tyres are good and there is no smoke or nasty smells out the exhaust.
    Thinking of calling her Alicia (Emmerdale) coz she is well fit!

    Seats are very clean (cloth) and carpet is mint. The door cards are a odd match and covered in dog teeth marks.

    I had a GT fwd a couple of years ago and that loved to step the rear end out going round islands but it was easy to control and lots of fun.

    Standard engine and turbo with a hks induction kit and some stainless exhaust which sounds sweet, not too boomy like some are.

    She's lovely. I remember having a hot wheels model of a race version of the Celica when I was a child. It was the pride of the fleet

    Friend of mine used to race a Jap import none turbo one which I bought him the GT bonnet due to it being made of ally, it performed well just needed a little more power.

    Yep, bottom lip still out!
    Those GT-Four spacers under the rear spoiler always were the nuts and still are!

    Here's a picture of mine, looked so cool with its lights up.
    Really need to stop reading this thread! Going to get a whiskey! Pictures 002.jpg

    Not rude dude. I know it's part of the suspension too. The reason I asked the question is because a few members have owned GT4s.
