    New direction for my MX73 Cressida

    I have owned this car for several years. I bought it from a good friend of mine who originally built it to the way it is now. I haven't driven it that much cuz for awhile there was something always wrong with it. I slowly started working on it and working some things out. I had to put it into overdrive when my AW11 decide it needed a engine rebuild. Well now that I have been driving it for awhile I have gotten a new inspiration for it. I have now decided to completely re-build it in modern VIP style. We are talking full leather interior, custom front a rear VIP tables, VIP curtains and custom lighting. I also plan on converting it to air suspenion, some very nice 18" wheels and a complete re-paint in late model Celica dark blue.

    Picture from several years ago, in it's prime.



    How it currently looks right now.







    I figure I will use the current wheels on the MR2 and just clean and powder coat them. I will post some pics of the ideas I have soon.

    i was just thinking where's all the junction produce stuff & then i scrolled down & saw the pics :tu:

    SSR Professor's or OZ Opera's are some pretty awesome rims to consider also

    you might be able to get some leather seats from the last gen Cressida we got here in the US & make those work nicely.
    IIRC they had these neat dimples/buttons & kinda like tie looking things -- they look VIP already in my mind anyways.

    good luck with the project looking forward to seeing the progress.

    PLEASE dont put xxr wheels on it. if your gonna put a bunch of junction produce stuff in it atleast get some real jdm VIP wheels. and if you cant afford it right now then dsave your money till you can actually afford a set.
