“My Met Car” is a 1988 Toyota Celica All Trac. 1988 was the first year Toyota manufactured this all wheel drive turbo Celica. Very few were imported into the US (about 2500). It was created so that Toyota could have a “production car” they could enter in the road rallies.
I originally bought this car (undecorated) quite a few years ago and used it as my regular car until 2005, when I bought a new car to replace it. The idea of fixing it up to look like this came to me a few years later. The project was completed in 2008. For more information on the project, read here.
My Met Car makes a number of trips to Citi Field to New York Mets home games. You may see it in the parking lot. If you do, let us know!
