I've been on JNC for a while but thought I'd finally put my cars into their garages.
This is my latest nostalgic. I was looking for something bigger than my 510 wagon to daily drive and carry my kids and their friends in. What better car than a bigger rare Toyota? Shipped it to Salt Lake from Washington along with a parts car.
Here's some history that I know. The brown car was parked in a garage in 1992 after gas prices reached $1.00. It was rescued the end of last year and now has the entire drive train of the yellow parts car. I still have a few items to dial in but it runs great. Both cars came with the more rare (I am told) 4 speed manual from the factory.
The yellow car was owned by a producer at one point and was actually in the 2006 TV series 'Vanished', obviously before it was wrecked. I considered getting ambitious and repairing the yellow car but there are too many good parts that I want to swap over and it has quite extensive buckling in the unibody.
When I got it I promptly dropped it 2" and threw a set of DR20s on it. Much better. I will update as I go but for now I'm driving it and fixing and detailing as I go. Here are some pics:
