Hi All,
I purchased the car as is, only addition by me was new 4-2-1 headers, previous owner works for the TRD rally team so he was meticulous and if he coulndn't find a suitable part, then it was fabricated at the workshop. eg front coilovers which provide a suprisingly comfortable ride :)
Just took it out for a spin....my dad messed around with the carbies, without my knowledge so it isn't running as it should be :evil: getting it tuned by Al Palmer so hopefully all goes well, with no hidden surprises.
Thanks for all the positive responses, ahhh...no it isn't a GTV, they are rare as. Just a replica:D hmmm...my guess about power, before my dad absolutely screwed it is probably 80rwk, not to bad for a car that weighs a ton, goes harder then my bros previous V8 soarer and that harsh old school sound.....love it :) :) :)

Finally got it tuned by Al Palmer and it is now running sweet. Honestly can drive it everyday if i choose, just that i don't want to park it at the local train station. Ride is supple, even with the coilovers and only slightly harsher then my daily driver civic. Now struggling to find things to do to it....any suggestions???

Probably take it to the next eomm, schedule permitting, hopefully Kevs car is ready by then or other old JDM's turn up ;)

Nice car mate, very sweet.

This is one of the best shapes Toyota came up with...glad to see one in such great condition and authentically restored and improved.
