Who knows this member!!??

Postby ct176 » Tue Sep 02, 2014 2:08 am

Hey toyspeed,

I'm trying to get a hold of a toyspeed member called CelicaGT8
He has not been online since Dec 2013 so messaging has come up with nothing.
If anyone knows who this member is Id really like to get in touch with him about about his 3sgte fwd corona wagon he built! His home town is listed as Auckland. It was a white 1990 corona with a 3sgte and roll cage fitted. I think he sold it on trade me eairly 2014? Maybe someone knows the car?? I know this is a real long shot, but Any info on the dude so I can pick his brain about the swap would be a huge help!

Cheers for that, I've read over that a few times, provides some good info.

Still would like you have a yarn with him, maybe even find out where his old wagon has ended up??

Sounds like he had a few nightmares along the way, but he was using a 3sge +t and I read he really liked to turn the boost up often! Sounded like a cool track car (when It was running right)with cage and gt4 discs all round.

I'm wanting to go for a factory 3sgte and have it run on stock boost for a more reliable daily.

Legend has it that the old corona retired to a peaceful shed where he was reunited with two of his cousins from the 165 family.
