GX81 Cresta Super Lucent G

1G-GZE powered, so it's actually not too shabby for a ~1,600kg (3,500lb) car. Pretty simple setup with BC coilovers and a J160 gearbox from an IS200.

Pretty cool ride, and I don't presume you'll meet many like it in Aus... :tu:
Now is it the pic, or are you running massive negative camber on the front?

Thanks, guys!

@Anders: There's a few other import Cresta/Mark II/Chaser getting around Australia, but they're not often a common sight. Also, it's just the picture I think. There's about 1.5-2° of camber in the front, but it's by no means massive, haha.

Bought a wheel.

Bought a knob.

Also ordered a replacement passenger side tail light, as the one in the car has a bit of a crack in it, so it's leaking water in and rusting the light bulb terminals.

I've also be sussing out all the service items to do the 200k service, since it's currently on 187k at the moment, but it looks like getting the parts out of Japan shouldn't be too pricey, which is nice.
