1981 Toyota Celica Supra Turbo by TRD.

December 19, 2010

This car has an interesting story and has lived a great life so far. The current owner bought the car in 1984 and has since enjoyed 260k miles with it. TRD installed a turbo and cage kit before he bought, and I bet that honor was only bestowed on a handful of cars.

It's great to see how perfectly the Long Beach Grand Prix Pace Car graphics have been redone. I'm hoping the owner gets on here and give me the go ahead to submit these shots to Japanese Nostalgic Car Magazine. Congrats again on this piece of work, you made my day!

Man, that thing is killer. Those 70's graphics fit the A60 Supra rims perfectly.

TRD Supra, unreal. i don't imagine many drift cars survive 260k miles this well.

can't believe the hygiene of that engine compartment.

good photos. the stripe is too good, worthy of "factory graphics" tag, even though it doesn't sound like it's from the factory.

The interior looked as good as the interior, I don't know how he accomplished that. Also I should have gotten a closeup of the wheels, I'd never seen them with a factory gold tint on the inlays.
