Cool! Is it a V8? BTW I got some Lexus badges if you want (I used to have a 4.0GT)

Put a zorst on it...2.0in dual catback with balance tube. It'll sound awesome :)

Nah its an I6. I dont want this to end the same way as my last car.
Id rather keep the toyota badges - griffin ftw.

Ill be leaving the exhaust stock, much rather a quieter car now.

nice soarer dude....is it 1jz turbo or NA 2jz powered? , like the wheel choice you've made on it too.....

What happened to your old car if you don't mind my asking?

menty

NA 2JZ powered.

Wrote the old one off, lets not go into that

Needs a good cut and polish, which Ill be doing soon. Would have loved for the wheels to be wider, as these were actually ordered for the cressida (and hence the offsets are a bit higher.) The rear tyre is also stretched on, but I dont want to waste 2 good tyres and buy some 275s to put on

Nice... :D
But what's the JVC thing mounted above the glovebox..? Also, I'm surprised no-one's brought up the slushbox yet :P

Tats
02-08-07, 07:43 PM
JVC thing is probably an aftermarket stacker controller.....

Love the late-model JZZs. Nice interior and tail lights :D NA 6-pack auto is a bit boring but would definately make a comfy cruiser :)

menty

Yeah, its a CD stacker.
Also had a TV/gps too, but someone stole it :(

Need to find a way to ply in an auxillary audio input

Washed, waxed and polished the car today. (ran out of polish for the RHS)

Anybody reckon that it is sitting too high? Photochops welcome.
The side pic is a little dark. How can I make it stand out more?

Im getting bored of it. Coilovers are in my room, and some wider wheels are to come (and possibly spacers)

Also need a rear bar, sideskirts, and possibly a 97 front bar if I can source one.

Then itll be exhaust time :)
