I saw a dodgy looking yellow TA22 about 3 mths ago in the northern weastern burbs and it had a huge portion of bog on the right rear falling off (at least an inch thick). I honestly thought the car had been garaged for ten years as it looked like it hadn't seen the road for a while.

Then i was driving about the North Eastern burbs about a month after and saw the same car parked in the front yard of a house. It definately was the same car as it was quite distinguishable :)

I'm seeing celica's all over my side of town but i'm hesitant in mentioning them after hearing about some car thiefts about SA.

Over and Out!

Saw these out at drift school middle of last year. Anyone on here know them? The first one was just sitting there, the other was out on the track and has/had the back r/h side bogged up (probably fixed by now)

hey yesterday i spotted a really clean grey celica that had a roof that folded open toward the back. All the roof and pillars and rear windscreen was there though. It was like that small merc with the fold up roof, but this was fabric not fancy electric stuff. Was a fella in his 40's driving it. Oh it was driving past the GG hotel. It looked really neat.

Edit: This is a picture of the car taken by MWP at the AJD 2010. Very nice Car!

HAHA, interesting the cars you find just browsing through here!

I read the description first, and I was like, "Hmm, that sounds familiar!" :P

There are more pictures, on James and Wayne's TA22 page on the Cars/Projects.

That car is right in that S13's rear end, was it good to watch? Must have been pretty quick?

That was at the first drift school, think that was just when they were heading into the pits after a session. It didn't really do anything out there which was a bit disappointing but you can't expect a lot to come from an open wheeler trying to do burnouts and drift.

I remember a while back i was taking the civic around mallala for one of the race practice days and there was a green a22/23 thing with something turbo in it flying around the track in the advanced group. Was amazing to watch it eat the v8's and the skylines. Don't know what engine it had but it must've been making some serious power/had a really good driver. Wish i took some pics but it rocked up late and we were all packed up ready to leave so only caught a few minutes of it before i had to go.
