1k: Stormtrooper Needs Hyperspace Drive: 1985 Toyota Celica GT

This next feature comes to us from tipper Andy L who writes:

Here is a great-looking 1985 Toyota Celica GT (for $1800 in Lincoln, NE via craigslist) that somehow managed
the last 30 years without getting consumed wholly by the tin worm and
only accrued 89K miles.  Unfortunately, the engine has failed
catastrophically and this Imperial Storm-trooper transporter is getting
sold for chump change.  

On the other hand, the
front-engine/rear-drive layout seems like the ideal starting point for a
sleeper, track car, drifter or whatever you’d like.  It shouldn’t be
tough finding something to propel this classic shape faster than the
original 22RE and slushbox combo.  What engine would you like to see in
it?
