Toyota Celica Restoration Project
Restoring this Toyota Celica had brought back memories of myself driving such a classic.
Back in the day when you had yourself to worry about and baby seats and passenger’s were not on my list of people to drive around. I only had me and the open road. A tank of petrol would last a week and enjoyed every moment of owning a Toyota Celica.
So when we were giving the opportunity to restore this classic. I jumped to the chance.
Back in the day when you had yourself to worry about and baby seats and passenger’s were not on my list of people to drive around. I only had me and the open road. A tank of petrol would last a week and enjoyed every moment of being the lucky owner of once such a car the Toyota Celica 1976. Takes me back.
Here is Dino’s story.
It was hard going finding a trusted panel beater restorer that I had confidence in restoring my 1976 Celica.
Thanks to the Internet a restorer was closer than I thought. They had great reviews and had been around a long time. PJ’s Panels came to my rescue.
Paul was friendly down to earth and had restored several Celica’s in his time so it was a no brainer to give him the job.
My Celica Story
I feel in love with my Celica plain and simple. It wasn’t that I wanted to get the car it was more of I needed the car. The passion for this car drove me to check every internet site there was. I finally found one after a two year search as they are scarce in Victoria. The car I found was on the day before my 19th birthday. So I cancelled my party and headed straight to Torquey to make sure she becomes mine.
This beauty of mine came up a real treat. I cannot wipe the smile off my face. The gleaming paintwork and the rust repairs were awesome.
This baby will be in my family for many year’s to come. You will see my Celica in car shows now I can totally show her off. I highly recommend PJ’s panels for restoring your car.
