Sold it for super cheap because LIFT wasn't the same after the repair.
Never heard of LIFT? Whatever it is you must have like though since you put it on your license plate. Someone wanna fill me in?

I thought that was a stock thing for Toyota? If that's what it is why not just say I loved the VVTL-I. I've never heard it called lift before but then again you never hear a bunch of Toyota guys standing around being all "LIFT KICKED IN YO!"

My 2000 Celica had that engine in it and it was awesome. It was my second favorite car just behind the 240. Technically it was better in every way and I loved it, I took it on a thousand mile road trip back home and it was the most amazing drive I have ever had. I got a ticket on the thousand miles back but what can ya do.

I think I liked the 240 more for what it could have been, and it was the last car I had that was just mine. After that I had a sentra and then got into a relationship around the same time I got the Celica so I never really got to play with it like my other cars.

Old car I wash I could of get back.... My old original 1991 Nissan sil80 (s13 front 180sx rear) I still remember flying over to Japan with a good mate 2 weeks before my 18th birthday to look for a car to import over... Ended up taking 6 months from when I first purchased it before it had compliance for Australian roads... Ended up modding the crap outta it.... About 12 months later I almost wrapped it around a pole with my little sister in the car then I new I had to get rid of it.... But now after learning to drive better and having greater access to tracks it's definitely something I wish I had back

Ah, the old "sileighty" . . .
Forever immortalized as "Blue Impact" in Initial D. Much like the "Ghost of Akina" immortalized the AE86. They will have a following for a long time to come.

Thumbs up for the Initial D reference problem is after shows like Fast and Furious came out in the US import prices went through the roof and never really came back down like they should. You can't find a decent honda from the 90's anymore that hasn't had a million engine swaps and anything RWD like 240's or corollas are gone, even old miatas are high. I've only even seen a few AE86 models for sale and they were outrageous. I still see an MR2 for a good price every now and then, and have thought about getting another one of those. Super sticky in the corners.
