Welcome to
Ray's V8

The Hatchback was purchased in early January 2005 on Ebay from a seller in Los Angeles, CA.
I was in California on a job and drove the car from Los Angeles to Dallas, TX over the weekend.

This Project has now taken a turn for the better.

At the end of 2017, A Friend made me a great deal on a donor 1991 Lexus LS400. The 4.0 1UZFE V8 will be swapped into this celica.
