Easy. Use the new ones, then send me the old ones. 8)

Are those head units available stateside? I love the retro look of them...

Yeh, I was leaning towards the old ones. But I just wanted to see what people here thought. I haven't even hooked them up yet, so I don't even know if they work. :roll:

LOL :mrgreen: I paid more than I thought I would for them speakers. I might actually sell off the newer looking ones.

The head unit was a surprise find on Ebay. Carrozzerias are on Ebay once in a while used. But I found this unit New In Box. Just got lucky I guess. Didn't think they were sold here.

Wow, that is amazing. You know where that is?

Inspiration? Inspired but I can't see myself achieving that.

That ITB is sick. Would be a dream to have on my car. But it may just be a dream...

pagong, looks like you found that old central WA, blue MX32 cressida. I was never able to make it there. I had no Idea it was for sale over here. The buyer of that saved you the longer trip into the farm fields.

Rare to see one for these for sale let along two at the same time :)

Update:

Car is "cosmetically" put back together for the most part.

Since it was burning a little oil, I'd figure I'd change out the valve stem seals. But as I began to take her apart, I realized that about 8 or more of the head bolts were stripped and not holding down the head! :evil:

Since I had bought a full gasket kit (mainly for the valve cover gasket and valve stem seals), one thing lead to another, I ended up pulling the head, getting it surfaced, changing the valve stem seals, and helicoil the block.

Found a water pump no problem, the time chain/gears are on the way.

So it's a waiting game with the motor, so since I am waiting, the process of air bags has begun. Will post pics of the progress of the bags soon.

While the head was off, had the opportunity to do a little cleaning with a bit of simple green and elbow grease. It looks better but I wish I had access to a pressure washer (yet). :roll:

Before:

After:

Could really use a pressure washer... :cry:

I was just told today that the blue cressy was sold. The only mechanical issue was the exhaust. I took a look at it in central, wa as I was driving to and from spokane at the time. It was sold before I got the chance get it for $800, iirc. I found out it was for sale again in western, wa but didn't get the reply I was looking for and promptly forgot it was still available. :mrgreen:

:)

sorry to thread jack.


I bought the blue mx32 and the owner fixed the exhaust. Car runs good for its age. I just need to replace the fuel line thats in the engine compartment as it has a small slit that lets fuel "squirt" out. Not too much but enough to bug me. :lol:


Ok back to OP's build thread.


I love this thread :) this is my inspiration. :tu:
