1993 Toyota Paseo in good condition. Was repainted factory red 3 or 4 years ago, but since suffered minor dents on the edge of the roof. As a result there is minor surface rust in that spot.

GLWS....I've always wondered how these little things would be in motorsports being so light and small. Unfortunately, I don't need another project and have kind of given up on autocross, but looks like a great deal.

With a bigger budget than I had and with a Celica transmission, the car would do well in E-Prepared. The gear ratios in the Celica trans make for better acceleration. I never had enough money for r-comps or more horsepower.

I'm kind of curious how it would do in FWD class rallycross, honestly. There are few FWD cars out there that are as light and short-wheelbase. Could be very fast. And in rallycross, horsepower and sticky tires don't mean jack.....

Also available is a custom made intake manifold with quad Triumph TT600 throttle bodies. I was able to get this setup to run for a short while until my MeqaSquirt ignition circuit or processor failed.
