Are you guys going to the next meet? It was supposed to be next Wednesday (the 13th) but according to the Facebook page it got bumped up to tomorrow (the 6th)...
HAha..it's all good. Don't let your stock looking CELICA keep you from meeting your fellow CELICA friends/brothers.
It's not always about the cars, it's meeting the owners who has the same love and respect in owning Toyota CELICA.

OHHhh...I see. Naaa...I won't be able to make it. Have fun tho!

^ -Thank You Klint!
I hate it when people says the TRD kit is OEM. It feels like a slap to my face, knowing I've spent HELLA money to buy that kit piece by piece.
Yeah, it's a optional kit or you can get it as an "Action Package" deal! But it's not an OEM kit! -It's a f*ck'n TRD kit!!!

OEM Kit:


TRD Kit:


"In-house aftermarket tuning!"
http://www.insideline.com/toyota/cel...lica-gt-s.html

What is TRD?
TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development. They are a semi-independent design,
engineering, production, and marketing arm of Toyota. Working hand in hand
with Toyota Motorsports, TRD produces and distributes parts that can be added
to your Toyota vehicle that increases the performance, handling, looks, etc of
any Toyota vehicle.


Many vehicles, the Tundra included, come from the Toyota factory or distributor
port with some of these TRD Parts installed.

There are three offshoots of TRD. One is L-Tuned, a specific arm of TRD that
handles nothing but Lexus modifications. Lexus is the luxury arm of Toyota
Motor Corporation. The other is Kazuma, which is the professional racing parts
distribution arm of TRD. The third is TRD Sport Parts, which is the "common"
TRD Parts distribution arm.

One big side benefit to TRD parts is that if you purchase TRD parts and have a
dealer install them, the parts will be covered under the balance of your
manufacturer's warranty.

1. Yes woman driver. And actually its the same color again (bright silver) but different offset/width. Not a fan of the gold/black and they dont have SBC in the size I want so bright silver it is, really like the color to begin with so all good. And lol they should sponsor me, got the shirt, wheels, and always promote em. Plus I got almost all my car buddies to cop a set.


2. Thanks for the 411, love that carbon blue color. Its almost black in some light and a really nice blue in others, just lovely. And TRD kit, guess TRD is to Toyota as Mugen is to Honda and Nismo is to Nissan etc?

*I remember back in the days the "action package" for the Celica, think it was a commercial not sure. So is the Action package just wing/lip kit or is it come with sport exhaust/suspension as well?

Thanks for the 411 on TRD, learned something new today.

All on Sunday, July 10th:

-Silver 00-02 stock bodied Celica, lowered, gunmetal/black rims, possibly wingless going down Yerba Buena about to turn onto Deans Place Way, around 6:10 P.M.
-Red TRD-kit Celica, looked like stock height, coming out of the Tully exit onto 101N, around 6:15 P.m.
-Silver 00-02 stock bodied Celica, looked like a GT-S and stock height, near McLaughlin and Story, around 6:30? somewhere around that time
-White 00-02 stock bodied Celica, lowered, wingless, possibly had rims but I don't remember. Forgot where but I think it was on McLaughlin as well or maybe near Capitol, I think a little later like 7:30 or 8

1. OHHhhh...I see. -Niiiice!

2. Now you know and knowing is half the battle.
YOOOOOOO JOE!


HAha...no problem. Most of the "Action Package" was ONLY just the TRD kit.
It's very rare, but I've seen 1 TRD CELICA at the show floor room back in the days in Fremont Automall that was fully modified with TRD parts.
It had the TRD kit, TRD rims, TRD coilovers, TRD oil filter, TRD intake filter and a TRD exhaust.

Random Rant:
Call me a loser or whatever back then cause I was obsessed with the 7th Gen CELICA's.
But I remember going to the Toyota dealership after work to compare the 2001-2003 CELICA's at the dealership.
What I've notice, there's NO such thing as a "fully" equipped CELICA at the dealership.
There was ALWAYS something missing. It was missing one or the other...a sun roof, leather seats, H.I.D Headlights, Auto dim rear view mirror or a JBL sound system. There was NO perfect CELICA out from the lot!

^For reals. I don't have the auto-dim rearview mirror/compass, JBL sound system... Had to upgrade my stuff with aftermarket parts.

The point is... It's boring when you buy a car that's perfect off the lot. A lot of the fun/learning comes from modding your car.

^Interesting, always good to know more about anything and everything. Gracias. That full TRD one in the showroom must have been sweet, all those goodies specifically coilovers/wheels/kit and not void the warranty since its dealer installed. Kinda off topic but hows the customer service at Toyota/Lexus/Scion (based on your experience) I ask because a bunch of my Honda friends (including me) always get the sh!t end of the stick when it comes to warranty work ie. faulty motor mounts/tranny crunch/etc. (shady Honda always likes to claim their customers abuse the car) Ever had to go in for warranty work at Toyota? (smooth sailing or nah?) Just always been curious about Toyota specifically how they take care of their customers etc. since me or my family never owned a vehicle from them. (always been in Hondas for the most part and some Nissans).

HAha...see!

Very true! I'm glad to know I bought a CELICA GT and I was able to upgrade and add a lot of aftermarket stuff to it.

Yeah, lucky owner whoever that was. Sad to know He/She may have parted out cause they may not know sh*t about TRD.

I haven't had any problems with TOYOTA of Fremont Automall from my 50,000miles warranty experience. I miss going there to get my free oil change and etc cause they were always very nice, helpful and friendly to me. I'm also glad I added authentic TRD parts to my car cause they automatically added it to my car warranty. I also got to know all the parts guys and they would give me a 15% discount on anything I wanted.
-TOYOTA Of Fremont Automall FTW!!!

Carbon blue 03+ Celica, wingless with rims, today getting gas at Costco on Senter around 3 P.M....I saw it from afar and sped across all the gas lanes just to get behind it. Turns out it was just an old Asian man

What I've notice, there's NO such thing as a "fully" equipped CELICA at the dealership.
There was ALWAYS something missing. It was missing one or the other...a sun roof, leather seats, H.I.D Headlights, Auto dim rear view mirror or a JBL sound system. There was NO perfect CELICA out from the lot!
My celica ORIGINALLY came with all that stuff.

OHhhh...I need to check your CELICA next time to see what's missing.
I still don't believe a PERFECT CELICA from the dealership.

^ No pics. No care! HAha...jk.
I spotted hella random CELICA's earlier today and I finally spotted another Zephyr Blue TRD CELICA GT.
Too bad it was all riced out. I was so dissapointed by the owner that I didn't want to take pictures of it.
