Technically second post they won't let you post urls/links until your second post. I usually fart around on PSTOC our local Toyota forum but due to the cars I own I may need your guys help at some point in time. So here are my rides.

So here is the somewhat current state of my 1976 TE37 deluxe...

She actually has recently received door panels windows and heat as she will be returned to street car status as I acquired a 1975 TE37 SR5 for $300 that will now be the autocross/racecar project...

And this car is the real kicker for me to start participating on this forum. Last night I bought a 1970 MS55 Crown for $750 and an HP printer...

And I also have a 1978 Subaru 4x4 wagon which is on it's last leg as rust has taken control and beyond repair granted it's not Toyota but J-Tin none the less...

The only major issue with the Crown is a rusty gas tank. Other than that you cant beat a s super cool J-tin classic for $750.

It's up for sale/getting parted out though it has huge rust holes in the floors rocker panels, fenders and rear quarters. I am kinda sad about it but the Crown will keep me happy!

There is as another one not in the picture and it is a notch back. They aren't mine :| My buddy is collecting parts for the hatch and another buddy will be using the notch for parts for his Starlet. So he will have a shell available if you want one?

Sorry I didn't make it over today. This being unemployed has made me lazy. I didn't even leave the house today.

Ironically most of the parts your buddy needs for the hatch is sitting right around the corner from your house but I don't know what Rix would sell :)

Nice score on the Crown! You definitely came to the right place. I agree with Bura, that Subie goon looks sick!

Welcome to JNC!

No problem, I might go to Tako Thursday but def NW Toy Run.

He has a crap load of aftermarket stuff like coilover, 4links, tomei lsd, braided lines sway bars and the like what he really needs is a ring and pinion. when we were towing it home the rear locked up on us on the freeway due to bad pinion bearing and no drive shaft/tranny which mucked the teeth all up.

hey Jake!

Yeah for those who didnt see the CL post Jake's being a bit modest. Yes he scored but he saved the Crown from the scrap heap or part out.

good to see you over here, great group over on this board.
