    Im from the caribbean, island called Trinidad. Most of the cars are right hand drive. This Cressida was imported from Miami by the previous owner thats why its left hand drive. By law, I need to put that decal on the bumper. (dumb law)


    On the track for some fun :

    hey whats going on guys another trini here wishing I was home but in Brooklyn NY. Well I had mostly corollas and rx7's and I just purchased my first 85 Cressida from a older woman. This car is very clean n well kept, so what I wanted to know is what exactly is needed for the swap im on a budget and going to do it myself. As far as engine mounts, trans mount Im just concerned about getting in bolted down n fitted right ?? Does engine mounts move front back lower ? I just need to kno info on getting it fitted right ..i would really appreciate it.
