1977 Toyota Celica

Second Floor- Industry

Although it was once considered sacrilegious by the car community to restore an original classic car with modern components, the trend of resto-modding has grown in popularity over the past decade and expanded to encompass more than American muscle. As a tribute to his father, Peter Vong chose a Toyota Celica for this project, with a Honda S2000 engine already installed. While features such as the electronic air suspension system and color-shifting neo-chrome finish reveal its modernity, it maintains the identifiable styling elements of a classic Celica.
