4 Cylinder Engine
*The piston starts at the top, the intake valve opens, and the piston moves down to let the engine take in a cylinder full of air and gasoline. (Part 1
of the figure) This is the intake stroke . Only the tiniest drop of gasoline needs to be mixed into the air for this to work.
*Then the piston moves back up to compress this fuel/air mixture. Compression makes the explosion more powerful. (Part 2 of the figure)
*When the piston reaches the top of its stroke, the spark plug emits a spark to ignite the gasoline. The gasoline charge in the cylinder explodes ,
driving the piston down. (Part 3 of the figure)
*Once the piston hits the bottom of its stroke, the exhaust valve opens and the exhaust leaves the cylinder to go out the tail pipe. (Part 4 of the
*Now the engine is ready for the next cycle, so it intakes another charge of air and gas

A LITTLE HIDDEN JAPANESE HISTORY ...
ABOUT THE TOYOTA CELICA:
Where did the Celica's actual style and inspiration come from? Here is a little bit of history that you don't hear much about, but many Celica owners know.
It all started in 1964 with the Ford Mustang. This was a definite flag ship for Ford and one of the biggest turn-on in the automotive world of it's day in the
USA. Clear around the world in Japan took notice to this love struck country over this Pony car. With notice, the Japanese also fell in love with her beautiful
lines and power too. Japan's Toyota car manufacturer took on the challenge of designing Japan's own version of the American Ford Mustang. After completion,
production followed with shipments pouring into USA in 1971. In 1974, Toyota introduced the first GT 5 speed Celica which is shown below. In 1976, Toyota did
not pull any strings when the Lift back rolled off the assembly line. This was by far the most obvious copy of the stylish Ford Mustang fastback and MACH1.
Toyota did a great job on these cute versions of the Mustang and like the Mustang, The Celica stormed America with open arms.
Our family was crazy over them too, I owned the oldest one shown below, 1974. My brother owned a 1975 GT and my mother topped it all off with a 1976 GT
Lift-back in a beautiful factory Root-beer brown metal-flaked paint. If you are a Celica owner as like us, you can understand exactly why our family owned 3
Celica's at one time. As most owners all know...once you drove one of these speedy little rockets, you became hooked for life. Well, I bought mine 1st and
outlasted our family by a long shot. Owning this car since 1976 and just recently had it's 30th B-Day.
When I eventually move on...my daughter has already informed me that it will become hers and has promised to carry on this car's legacy with our family. I guess
my life is complete now that she wants it. Little does she know that I may just take it with me,
