      Hello from Canada

      Hey guys and gals. I am new to the forum so I figured the best place to start is here.

      My name is Devin and I have been restoring a 1973 celica for the last 5 years. It is my dream car and took 10 years to find one locally. I am also building my parts car a 1973 Celica with a friend. Being an import Not sure if the Celica qualifies as a pro-touring car but that is the theme we are going for with the build. Both of these builds are on my youtube channel: Dad's Toy Garage. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoy...kgJLEAr8SSQyQQ

      Welcome. Nothing wrong with a 73 Celica, import or not. Front engine, rear wheel drive, max possible curb weight from the factory, just a stock 2015+ Camaro V6 with the 8 speed would get you a power to weight ratio in the 7-8lb/hp range. With that kind of power/weight you'd be tearing people a new one around the track. Besides, while the majority of cars here are NA domestics, there's enough from all continents that "import" doesn't really matter. Start a project thread, let's see where you're going with it.

      Another shout out from Winnipeg...

      A car build is a great way to spend a long, cold winter!
