Celica 2.8i

I’m currently helping a good friend build an ultra-clean 1984 Celica Supra. I’ve been on the hunt for suspension setups and all sorts of stuff so naturally in my search I came across a couple of cool rides. These cars are pretty rare to see in any condition but trash. When I saw this 2.8i sitting pretty on wide Watanabes I was moved! I wish I had more photos, but this is the only one I found of this car. Still very much worth sharing!

  2. Archie

    There’s a second shot of it here:


    It was at The 2010 Queensland Japanese Nationals Australia

  3. Aggresive and so sick

  4. looks like his tow hook is scraping a bit, one of my favorite celica supras

    • Jhooks

      Thanks man! I’ll show that to my friend. He was really excited to see this car. It’s real inspiration for his project.

  5. Retrospec

    Very nice build so far. I love the whole celica line. These cars definitely deserve more respect and recognition then its been getting.

    • Jhooks

      I said I was helping a friend build one, and this was a celica I found on the net while digging for parts and such.

  6. B_rock

    Lol dude driving is on the phone!!

  7. RR

    the guy who owns this is going to have a HUGE cry he doesnt like it being published hahahaha

    that being said, hi-res shots here
    and here

    suck it up marvis you baby

  8. Such a gangster Celica Supra. Also an Aussie car, I will see what more I can track down for you bro, maybe even throw a feature up of it. Owner isn’t the friendliest of dudes though. I think I got some shots lying around.
    It is actually the dudes Girlfriends car as well, believe it or not haha

  9. Monk

    owner is a complete bitch about his car being online and will probably be here shortly to have a cry.
    just went through this on speedhutners.

    • Jhooks

      well his pics shouldn’t be posted Public on the interwebs… pretty simple way of keeping your super cool car to your super cool self

      • Monk

        pretty much, you’d think he wouldn’t take it out to car shows and meets if he was serious

  10. ecks

    Gangster indeed, but the builder is going to shit bricks when he sees this. At least his plates have been blanked haha

  11. That’s like a hot blonde walking out in the public naked, and not expecting anyone to take pics of her and post them online.

  12. marvis

    Not too happy about it, Not a fan of FADLACE etc… LOL at hellaflush tag, it’s funny and ironic as we both hate hellaflush, fadlace, whatever names it comes under.

    It’s on some sites, but just ones I like. Stop being a wank about it downshift guy.

    I built this for and with my girlfriend.

    Good setups for this are coilover converted RA65 (or just MA61) strut, cut 40-60mm, MR2 SW20 rear shock insearts, RCA’s, lock spacer, maybe longer LCA or camber tops depending on wheels. TRD blues etc rears (AE86) and AE86 springs. Stock diff are shithouse.

    Toymods.net is a good place for information.

    By the way, it’s a hangring.. not a tow hook..


    • marvis the dragqueen

      Open you’re eyes buddy. You’re part of the “FAD” which is really ironic. lol.. If you hate it, get out of the scene cause you’re a major douche. Get a 4×4 if you dont wanna get on sites.

    • Fatlace

      Wow, a hater on our site that’s been featured. I guess there’s a first for everything.

      3 million people that view the site monthly and theyll see this and see your hate towards our site. It’s ashame cause we’ve been around since 1999 and we’ve been up on our game since then.

      Thanks and if there are any other Celica’s that want to get featured, hit us up.

    • Jhooks

      Hate to break it to you buddy, but your car is Low and the wheels are Flush with the fenders making it “Hellaflush” …you have a hangring on your car… how much more Fad can you get?

  13. Don’t worry about him Josh, he is just a sad sack. Doesn’t appreciate that everyone else appreciates his car. Most people would be stoked to land on Fatlace unexpectedly, but obviously some are fools.
    Also Marvis, calling it Fadlace really shows how stupid and naive you are.

  14. marvis

    Don’t like fatlace, so why would we be stoked when it’s on here? I don’t build cars for people to give their opinions on or so people like it.. i build what i want and don’t give a fuck what everyone thinks or want to share it.

    It’s only some sites i have issues with.. Don’t know why you guys should care wether I want it on some sites or not.. Stop making a big deal about our choices, you downshift guys need to be more professional.

    • Marvislikesnads

      Don’t you think it’s abit disrespectful that you’re not even thankful for a feature? I mean, even If you aren’t a fan of the site/brand/tuning style, you should atleast be kind to the the dudes here that featured what is a good looking car. Shame your attitude lets it down.

  15. ecks

    Congrats marv, you’re now internationally recognised as being a douche.

    • SCM

      Funny, because he’s actually the man and you and your drag queen buddy are the reason I don’t read the likes of fatlace, speedhunters and HEALLAflush. I actually thought you were taking the piss with those tags. You forgot to mention how stanced out it is.

      • ecks

        Don’t get me wrong I love the cars that marv builds, but his attitude online is totally wrong.

  16. Aidan

    These things can go super low offset…stock i believe offset is 0 if not close to it ;)

    They can easily swap 7M-GTE

  17. marvis

    7MGTE is fail though. 1gge or 2jze FTW.

    Stock wheels are 14 x 7 +8. This has 15 x 8.5 – 14, 195-55 and 15 x 9.5 – 16, 205-55 with – 2 camber front and -6.5 rear.

    And no Marvislikesnads, I don’t, or do I care. I want it off here.

  18. Monk

    marvis why do you bother taking the car out to car shows and meets if you don’t like pics of it getting around?
    one day it’s going to end up on boostcruising lol

  19. Roy1928

    Hey Marvin or Josh, I’m trying to find a coilover setup for my ra65 85 celica gts. I can’t find much on the celica forums and this thing needs to be slammed and fitted asap. My pops is the original owner and it’s in great condition so I’m taking full advantage of that

    • Josh

      You pretty much have to go with a sleeve setup in front and aftermarket springs from another model 80’s toyota in the rear. Aftermarket Celica shocks are too long to go low on. Alot of people are using MR2 koni/agx in front with GC sleeve coilovers, and for the rear just about any standard shock off a camaro, focus, etc will work. You just need to measure the stroke length to figure out which is best. The rear spring can be custom ordered or you can use a spring off of an AE86. If it was me I’d probably do koni’s from a MR2 and Focus, GC sleeves in front, and order a custom spring for the rear in the diameter and height I wanted.

  20. marvis

    It already was, but people on there are too stupid. I am all for it being on sites, just not some.

    Car meets are good for meeting people and talking about cars etc.. People these days seem to be all about photos and non-seance. More on this has already been answered above. I was at this show (picture above) to show support for a car club we are in.

    Anyways once again, for more information on making your Supra handle good and look awesome etc, go on toymods.net. Lots of information etc, cool site.


  21. Alexx

    Why cant we all just get along?

    I really like your car marvis, it looks stunning. And i can understand why you don’t want it on the net. Having said that, there are polite and impolite ways of going about getting the photos removed. You give the impression of the latter, hence why people arc up.

    A simple ‘please’ goes a long way :)

  22. This thing is the shizz. I also have more photos of it, check out http://unitednissanclub.blogspot.com/ for more, under the 2010 Jap Nationals. ;)

    Steve. UNC.

  23. Monk

    meh, as long as his plates aren’t shown it shouldn’t be an issue i’d have thought.

  24. gnzRR

    Sucks that when I find a a nice Celica it belongs to such a douche… Anyway I have a jdm ra63, 18r-g engine, sittin’ on Works 16×7 fron, 16×8 back, looks nice :)

    • marvis

      Yeah man, I am a douce because I don’t want the car on fadlace because I really really don’t like the site.

      • gnzRR

        Nope dude, I totally agree with you on that… Just be more polite… Cheers and sick ride.

  25. marvis

    Those got around quick..

  26. LOL

    LOL A+ Marvis, just like everywhere else on the internet. Fuck so good. Just so you guys know not all Australians are like him.

  27. Brenno

    fonzy still pwns this fool haha

  28. Jordan

    This dudes an idiot. Everyone’s comments above his are ALL positive. Then he comes and complains that ONE picture of his gf’s car is on the site. You act like Fatlace is your gf’s ex-boyfriend, hating for no reason. Dope ass Celica, dumb ass Aussie.

  29. dj sinistrum

    you aussies are fucking lucky to have straight jdm rides! it’s funny to see what dad’s car could have looked like if he never sold it lol

  30. dj sinistrum

    wish he just gave it to me lol
