Pictures are of it in the older, simpler, prettier days. At the time of these pictures (Even the last one) there was less than $1300 in the car.

How much different are these to the alltrac cars? and is it easy to switch one over to an awd? I mean are the bodies the same and such?

They're quite different unfortunately (I used to own this same model Celica). Although the conversion has been done, from my understanding there's lots of things that get in the way of the all wheel drive hardware that have to be extensively modified. You're way better off starting with a factory 4WD model.

Very cool, and I have another question for your comments. The Camry V6 tranny bolts up to the 4cyl, and vice versa? I've suspected, but never heard definative(sp?) info. Look forward to seeing post swap pics.

My favorite celica bodystyle. The front bumper is a nice touch. It's even black too.
