John Gorman '90 Toyota Celica Alltrac Turbo

Oct 1, 2009

John Says
I owned a MKIII Supra Turbo when this beauty showed up. Then when I saw the RC (rally champion) hood, bumper and chargecooler, I knew I had to have it. That's when the complete restoration got out of hand. When I found the entire chargecooler setup in England at 3:30 pm, I was on the 8:00 pm flight to Manchester. The rest is history, and it's what you see here.

We Say
The Celica Alltrac is an already rare car in itself, and to see one converted to full RC Spec is downright amazing. We're sure a lot of time and money went into sourcing all the right parts to complete the conversion, but its looks to be well worth it in the end. We also love how clean the car is-no stickers, just pure JDM styling.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang.
