Hi All

Im Mason from WA. I own a RA23 Celica aka "CORNFED" with a 1jz conversion. Ive been inhto cars for as long as i can remember, fond childhood memories of car shows with my dad. AS i got older and my older brother got his licence we found 1st gen celicas ive owned one ever since i could afford one at the ripe age of 13 HAHA.

I've owned CORNFED for about 8 years, bought it with a 1ggte engine conversion, Dailyed it for a a few years as an apprentice and eventually rear ended a ute. During the repairs i decided on a 1jz conversion while we were at it. over the years i made improvements as funds allowed opting to do as much work as i could myself, making friends across the industry as i went to local car shows and meets. My thirst for knowledge has led me here as i seek to broaden my skills in the automotive industry looking to dual trade from my current LV/HV electrician to auto motive electrician when i eventually leave the mining industry.
