Poor Man's Exotic
By stuski on
1992 Toyota Celica All-Trac 2dr Hatchback AWD
I bought my current All-Trac Celica
Turbo brand new. It is still brand new.
Well, I had to change the front wheel
hubs and bearings, one caliper, the
flex pipe, use only sythetic fluids.
Great performance when you keep revs
over 3000 rpm. I put in an oversized
flex pipe(old one wore out), made the
exhaust louder. Amazing. A/C never
charged, still works like new. Stereo
is still great after some parts in it
were replaced by a QUITE reputable
stereo repair place. I saw the car in
all the magazines at the time, went for
a test drive, and ordered it
immediately. Thank you Toyota, I am a
common man that owns an exotic.
Looks, handling, engine sound, all
stock, never in accident performance.
Solid like a LEXUS. Would I give this
car up for a brand new Subaru WRX or
Mitsubishi Evolution? Toyota was ahead
of there time. Today you have to
compromise instead of buying a Toyota.
Simple aftermarket performance upgrades
do the job and increase performance
substantially. Todays all wheel drive
cars might have great performance, but
none can match the looks of a perfect
Black All Trac Celica Turbo. Perfect
for 11 years.
