Dyrell Acosta and his father purchased the 1973 Toyota Celica you see here from California, and had it shipped over to Hawaii. Since then, the father-son duo has been building the car, adding their own personal tastes into the modification process. Inspired by 80s style with a new twist, the Celica is all sorts of cool.
