Mechanical condition: Nearly flawless, the only problem that i can not diagnose is a "clanky" noise from the cam shafts. I measured all the cam plates to make sure they are to exact specifications and they are, it puzzles me to what it could be.
Aesthetic condition: small dent on A piller, custom painted hood and spoiler, and Kaminari body kit is on its way
Money spent fixing the essential(mods/maintenance excluded): Kaminari body kit $500, I bought it with an overheating problem it was as simple as new head gaskets, thermostast, radiator, water pump, and shaving the cylinder heads. (dad is a master michanic and auto technician for 30 years so it reduces the price) roughly $300 in repair upon purchase. Paint for the hood and spoiler all together was $400.
Before you guys post anything about how much I spent on this car with 270K miles, I know. I love this car and when the engine goes I plan on droping a 2ZZ engine (from the celica) with the 6 speed manual trans.
