Owned a gorgeous Red NA back in 2013 I had to sell to fund other things. The VX appeal was too much and after going through an R33 Skyline and Celica GT-Four am back in a VX. Gone the turbo option this time and have picked up this little beauty from .adam. 

 

The engine is running very nicely, plenty power for me. So going to focus on trying to work up the interior. It current has 'biscuit' which isn't my favourite flavour so looking at possibly carpeting the interior and changing the biscuit out for something else. Possibly getting new seats altogether.

I know Adam just had a Tullet fitted , so its ready for having a remap for plenty more. I'm just a few miles away from Richmond if you are thinking about going for my 260pack setup.

Metallic Plastidip the dash plates, and bought a new tyre repair bottle. JBL speakers installed, big hammer required to remove the annoying Blaupunkt head unit!

You had the very nice red GT4 didn't you. Hope you are well mate. I didn't realise you were local to me either, if I knew that I would have requested a closer look of the Celica lol.
Had my VXT a year and a half now since selling the Z, love the thing.

Yes had the GT4, sold it to a chap who flew over from Ireland! I had a few time wasters offering me a couple of grand but saw them off pretty quickly lol

 

Sun is out this morning, waiting for wife to come back from her run, then off to the gym, then going to drive around anywhere in the VXT roof off and smile on!

Just struggling with a seized nut then hopefully last of the new shocks on and a run over to Elstead to see the old man. Long way via Hindhead tunnel I reckon.
