I have seen this little car parked off Smokey Point Blvd for a while. First it was there and not there like any daily. Then one day it was parked in a different spot and sat for a while, a while later a tarp covered it and there it sat. I had got to missing The Celica and Shonuff was pestering me about getting another thrasher. I decided to see what the story was on this one.
Story goes, about 30 yrs ago a couple immigrate to the US, they get this car as their first car. Kids grow up and learn to drive in it and then the daughter had a bit of a kerfuffle in it.
Perfect base for our purposes. I purchased it March 2018 for probably too much lol.
So meet The Beercan, or Sunny the Donut Machine. 😄
Merely a flesh wound.
Not a bad little runner :)
I drove the thing to Nuffs work and he drove it the rest of the way out to his place.
Surprisingly it drove straight really straight.
Fucking thing vibrates like crazy though as the output on the trans and pinion are toast.
So there it sat until this weekend (the snow finally melted)
Used a 411 wheel to drive it out, the original wheel was a bit warped.
Time for some entertainment value.
Our puller for the day
Door open, much success. It also closes lol.
Anyone interested in some interior pieces? The seats are trash unfortunatley
We were able to pull the side out far enough to stop the wheel from rubbing.
Already drifting lol
Lets go do some testing, does burnouts and still vibrates lol.
Little bit of a trail test.
I already located a door and a possibly a quarter panel but I think I will wait for a straighter one of those.
Some interesting stuff in that yard.
Weird hooks on this re-skinned gate.
If anyone is interested in the A14 let me know.
I have other plans for this thing :)
Also Shonuff picked up a cheap Celica that will be built to thrash as well. I forgot to take pics of them parked together, but it is in the background in one of those pics.
The Celica - RIP to the OG.
