    Introduction: HOT CONTENT!

    Well shit fellas...

    Hi...


    I own Toyotas... lots of old Toyotas... I also own a 400HP S13, but who really gives a shit about that.


    Well.. this is the new daily driver that I have been building. It consists of a 1JZ, MX73 IRS with crossmember/frame grafted to the existing frame. V-notched the frame, etc etc... R-154 tranny, full custom air ride with 2500 series bags up front and 2800's in the back. Lays frame, floorboard and pinch weld.

    It is currently running 1 bar of boost, so.... cheeea! From wiring it headlight to taillight, making the JDM round gauges work, and finishing every other aspect of the car, I would say this is yet another Old Series GARAGE successful build.

    good luck, and enjoy.

    P.S: I will post some build up pictures later.






    Some random pics....






    Goodwill bitches...



    All your wagons, are belong to us. We set us up the roof racks, how are you gentlemen.





    Lights, camera.... no action.




    most recent pictures thanks to Ian and Danny. I also finished the full exhaust... which I will take pics of sometime tonight or tomorrow...

    Also, I took the 14X7 mesh off and put my 15X7's on... damn, believe it or not, it actually took some inner fender work in the back (im talking about the very top, because my car lays out frame and floor board, therefore the overall radius of the tire affects my limit of "tuck").

    I want to go even lower, but I would have to tub the back of the car to do that :roll: .








    Here are some pics I took of my wagons exhaust..







    good luck, and enjoy .

    I think that you've just begun a new trend in Japanese car modifying. I'm speechless!

    [jaw on the floor]I saw the first two photos posted on some other forum, and I instantly fell in love with your car.[/jaw on the floor]

    Unfortunately, these Crowns are scarce in Europe. I found one for sale in Germany not long ago, but I couldn't afford it. Dang...

    By the way, have you got any detailed rear suspensions pics? I'd love to see how exactly you cut up the existing frame to use the MX73 IRS... Did you consider any other IRS, like the Jag setup?

    I like it. :tu: Reminds me of a the HoodRide VWs before the site went tits up. Just remember when the v8 guys look at it, your car has "patina," not rust.

    Wow.

    A friend posted pictures of your wagon on another forum I'm on awhile back, and he got them off a Celica/Supra forum. So it seems to travel around.

    That wagon= sex. I love everything about it. And I am suitably jealous.

    It's hard to see in that sunset picture- what is the other wagon?

    Got any pictures of your other cars as well?

    I seriously love that Corona though. Good job. I want one. 8)

    Thank you all for the warm welcome.. I will post pictures of my other cars in a minute...

    p.s: My wagon is in no way affiliated with a Corona. From late 72 to mid 76 (many many changes in between) Toyota used the name "Corona" and put emblems next to the MarkII emblem to make the model "MarkII" known (it was BRAND NEW at the time, its the first generation x-chassis).

    Basically, the chassis desegnation is MX29, just as a Crestas, MarkII, Cressidas, and Chasers. They are all X code chassis.

    Coronas are T- chassis... so thats a whole another animal.

    These are the cars which I CURRENTLY own... yes, I said that right, currently - meaning I can go and rub my balls on any one of them.

    So, what I am going to do is post one picture, maybe two, and put the name of the car and some things that are done to it.

    If you want to see more pictures of a particular car, let me know, and I will post more.


    Here it goes:

    My gay 400hp 240 (sorry, my only pic)


    1987 FX16 (Just a backup car really...)


    1971 Toyota Crown (all original. One of FOUR imported to the states with a manual tranny!)




    1971 Toyota Celica RA20 (BEFORE SUSPENSION! Fully restored by me for my father- Now getting a Beams Dual VVT-i 3S-GE from Altezza with 6 speed man. tranny.).




    My celicas..




    I will further elaborate on which one is what and what they have under the hood...



    My 1971 Corolla is seen here in this pic (the two Coronas on the right are sold and gone). I will provide better pics of the corolla... as soon as I find them.

    My other MarkII wagon!!! (7M-GTE - I built this like 4 years ago, and am now building a much much beaster 7M-GTE for it)




    My 1975 TE37... (trying to decide on what engine it will get - this is my first car and my baby)




    Ah, finally my 1971 TE21 (4A-GE from AE86 under the hood... lots and lots of suspension)





    My 1971 TA22 celica (4A-GE on Megasquirt - not finished yet).




    Mint and very original 1971 RA20 celica (going up for sale :-( booo!!!)




    The red 1973 MarkII wagon when it was stock:

    You all know what it looks like now...

    My 1973 RA21 Celica (full out track car--really though look at it).











    Ok... im tired of looking up pics... I will try to get more later...

    have fun, dont hurt your eyes.

    "We have winner!"

    Wow, that's an amazing collection.

    I think I share the same disease. I have a thing for station wagons with ridiculous amounts of hp too. The reactions you get driving it around must be priceless.

    Man, I love that TE37 Corolla too!

    Great stuff. :tu:

    Wow.

    Just wow.

    I'm suitably jealous. Those are some sexy ass Toyotas.


    I gotta ask- how hard are these Mark II wagons to find? Because after I saw the pictures of your red one for the first time, I decided I want one- but yours are the only ones I've ever seen/managed to find.
