  • rev up your engines, today I'm going to talk about perhaps the best car ever
  • made, my old 1994 Toyota Celica s it's got a
  • little bitty 1.8 liter engine same exact engine they used in the
  • Corolla the same year that puts on a whopping 110 horsepower yeah it's not a
  • race car and the problem with celicas is they tried to make them more into
  • race cars then they had problems, take for example to 2002 Celica that
  • they had a yamaha redesigned engine that did put out a hundred and eighty
  • horsepower at very high rpms, but they had problems with blowing up they
  • weren't designed correctly in my opinion it was that Yamaha engine that led to
  • the decline and eventual total demise of the Celica, made them for decades before
  • that that was the beginning of the end to my 94 Celica else it's got the 1.8
  • liter Corolla engine and yeah it's not gonna win any races, a race of time this
  • thing's got 240,000 miles on it still runs like a clock and sure it burns a
  • little bit of oil it burns half a quart every 3,000 miles
  • I changed the oil every 3,000 miles heck I've seen some modern cars that
  • they burned half a quart of oil every three four hundred miles and this thing
  • is 26 years old has almost 240,000 miles, that's what I call a solid engine and
  • it's got an uber dependable 4-speed automatic transmission yeah I would have
  • rather had it with a 5-speed standard but heck I only paid 350 bucks for the
  • car so in that case beggars can't be choosers, and really it's just perfectly
  • fine with 240,000 miles on it, it's had the filter and fluid changed like eight
  • or nine times in its lifetime transmissions has never been touched
  • other than that, and look at the nice wheels, well it's just a facade anyway
  • these are autozone hubcaps but they look pretty good yeah I'm not gonna
  • waste my money on tires and rims and when you put these back on it actually
  • looks pretty good from afar, now the engine and the transmission is all
  • original I had put one timing belt and one water pump on the engine, but other
  • than that it's all original except for quite a few other parts, but if you want
  • the truth of that, the old parts weren't even worn out, anybody who knows me knows
  • I check out things all the time so my customers are sending me things all
  • the time, this thing's got a catalytic converter, all four struts, fancy seat
  • covers, new discs and rotors, but I was testing out products that other people
  • made the car didn't actually needed but hey they gave them to me for free and I
  • was testing them out for all you viewers to see if those companies make decent
  • products or not, so these fancy LED headlights they're not stock they look
  • cool, I still got the stock halogens in the trunk they still work I'm testing
  • them out for people, as you can see they still work quite well I put them in years ago
  • I'm just using it for testing stuff, this hatchback has a lot of room yeah there's
  • a lot of junk in it but realize this is a work car and I use it for hauling
  • stuff all the time, watch what happens when I take pieces of it out and move
  • things around this comes right out, then we can pop the seats back, look at all the
  • room this thing has, it'll hold all kinds of stuff, giant screen TVs, wood for fixing
  • the old house, there's a lot of space in this thing well this is a lot
  • of space when the seats are put forward, but truthfully if you're sitting in the
  • back of this thing there isn't that much space for big people to ride in the back
  • it is a compact car after all, and yeah the seats wore out, but look at
  • this these are custom made seat covers I got online, they really look good these
  • are seat covers these aren't reupholstered, these are actual seat covers you'll see
  • they're just seat covers they snap on, and I know people are saying, oh scotty
  • this thing doesn't even run, well look every time you turn the key it starts
  • right up, it's a Toyota and look at this original AC system
  • ah this still blows ice cold, granted with all this glass yeah you got
  • a lot of Sun in there you got a greenhouse effectt you need a good
  • air-conditioner in this car, and here's one of my cool inventions since Scotty's
  • cheap they broke years ago and you gotta buy them in pairs and they cost a lot of
  • money, so look at this I just bolted on a little plastic swing arm that holds
  • it up, when it's closing you see you open it up it locks in place and holds it in, then
  • when you want to close it you just pick it up and then get out of the way, down
  • it goes, it's been that way for over 10 years now, that thing isn't going to break
  • those assemblies you buy the factory ones and you gotta buy them in pairs, it
  • was over 200 bucks. why not just invent things. I don't care if this thing's
  • stock or not you know I'm never gonna sell it, it's my work, now they're fun
  • to drive the suspension is a big upgrade over what would be on a 94 Corolla, it's
  • no race car it's a fun car just to go around in, and I mean I took it out the west
  • Texas one time where the speed limit is 85, it had no problem cruising for eight
  • hours at 85 miles an hour, and yeah years ago I had to change the radiator their the
  • plastic aluminum stuff like everything else is, but I bought one of these
  • Japanese ones back in the day when I bought it was $79 took like 40 minutes
  • to put in and it's still working ten years later, that's the advantage of
  • getting something that's basically a Toyota Corolla there are parts all over
  • the place aftermarket because there's still millions of them rolling down the
  • road, you don't have to special order sports car parts and pay a fortune like
  • other cars, most of the Toyota parts fit this thing, now sure this thing's 26
  • years old but look at it it's still got decent style, the GT that's out front
  • that's going to the junkyard, it had more horsepower and it's headed to the
  • junkyard, but this little thing is still rolling
  • along, with its 1.8 liter Corolla engine and being front-wheel drive it's good up
  • north and the snow, it pulls itself along quite well, it's not like a little
  • rear-wheel drive sports car in the snow it's gonna fishtail all over the place
  • heck the previous owner took it to Colorado skiing many times, and yeah the
  • paint's faded a little the reason I got it for 350 years ago was
  • the fender was crushed I had to get my body guy to put a fender on and the front bumper
  • you could see the orange yellow underneath, because the previous owner
  • had it painted at one of those high school shops where you pay for the
  • materials and they paint the car free, I had the whole thing painted one color at
  • one of these discount paint shops and they didn't do a fantastic job, you can
  • see it's getting all flat now but at least it's all one color making, this is the
  • first car I ever owned in my life that was all one color, all the other ones are
  • a bunch of different colors because they'd been wrecked before, I bought them and
  • fender wouldn't always match, the bumper wouldn't match, the hood because they'd
  • been resprayed when you repainting the car it's almost impossible to get it the
  • same color unless you paint the whole car the bumper is gonna look different
  • than the fender if you don't paint both of them, and unless you're willing to
  • spend thousands having the paint scraped out of the bare metal and totally
  • repainted to look like no you're gonna end up with a flat paint job after a
  • while if you get a cheapy paint job, but ah it's my work car, the hot Texas Sun is
  • fading the heck out of the paint, although it's Texas rain at the moment
  • you want and all-around vehicle that can drive all over the place and not break
  • down you can't beat his 94 Celica s, I wouldn't think twice about jumping in
  • this thing now I'm driving to California, and yeah I took out the bad Toyota
  • radio the head a tape deck in it and put in a CD player years ago, so now you know
  • the truth about my old Celica work car why they can run forever, so if you never
  • want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember to ring that Bell
