Does anyone have any idea what is hanging down from the right front suspension of the Toyota Celica in the middle photo? I can't tell of it's suspension or bodywork.
I'm curious cuz' this is the car that rolled-over in the esses and this photo was obviously taken before that incident.

it looks like it is a plastic shield or what’s left of one maybe.

It is just the plastic splash shield (or what was left of them since the car was new) - most if not all of the celicas have issues with the plastic clip-on shields (mainly due to poor re-assembly after oil changes). Poor car, it will definitely be missed. : (

Clutch, thanks for taking photos of it!

No problem Omabramo - I've got more coming from the swamp and the back straight. If you want the aftermath pics let me know and I'll email them to you.

Sorry that happened bud...

Don't miss the car. Bang it out, put a cage in it and come out and play. That's oversimplifying it but it could be your opportunity to race.

Clutch,

Aweseome photos as usual. You got some great color and depth in the photos even with very difficult cloud reflection and lighting conditions. The snow in the shots captures the day, for sure. Great job!

Hi, Clutch,

Yes, please! - omabramo@mtu.edu
It should serve as a healthy reminder not to overdrive a car anymore.


If I can source a straight body, I might be able to salvage this situation for the future.
