Celestial celica

I have been dreaming about this car ever since I was a teenager. Well, twenty years ago the model was really different, the headlights were round but the sports look and feel were more or less the same.

To tell you the truth, I used to dream about the 1990's model, it is the one that stole my heart. They are not very difficult to find on the net but to be sincere, that model is a relatively old car, not yet a classic, I hope you see the difference and get what I mean.

I already own a toyota and I'm very happy with it. It is the most reliable car I've ever had so far but it is simply not a celica ;)

When toyota stopped producing celicas in 2005 I thought that I would never be able to get one. But guess what, I went to a car fair last weekend (I usually go to all of them) and found it. This happens to be the 2005 model and thus the very last one in production.

Well, I couldn't resist and bought it, so now I have a small collection of toyotas at home, which is cool. I hope to get a discount in my next acquisition for being a faithful customer ;)

Here you are a couple of pictures I took at the fair. I'll upload more photos soon, I want to find a lovely background to show off how knockout my celica looks. Absolutely stunning, isn't it?

Here comes the sun.

I know it took a while until I could place the solar panels in the right location but I've been busy all summer long.
I bought four solar panels at the end of July and they arrived at the beginning of August. First, I made a provisional installation to see if they worked correctly and they did, but they could not take advantage of direct sunlight all day long.
I started building the frame to hold eight big solar panels and I did all the work to put it on the roof of the house. Today I have finally "uploaded" the four initial solar panels and connected the cables. They have been producing good electricity all the afternoon. "Good" as in both "environmental friendly" and " for free", or "gratis".
If the results are good, I'm gonna get four more for Christmas. They are really cheap now so it is the right time to do it.
Here are some pics:
