Aww, Sorry for your loss, Treboen :(

At least your Cressy made the pages of a great forum and his and your pride and joy was shared with so many appreciative fans to enjoy, before he died. I know he is watching over you and your MX32, also. ;)

I love my MX63 Cressy, and will post pics when I get her looking more into satisfactory condition.

Welcome to JNC, man. lol 8)

Nice ride!

Yours definitely looks like it could go lower!

Here's mine next to a standard one (although the other car has been 'done' now - it's on this board!):

You should be able to see the difference! Mine is quite compromised ride-wise though.


Is it still possible to find one in good condition in britain? They're so rare here, and even rarer in good condition. The ones that are are simply inseperable from their owners and the ones that are not are unloved daily beaters, which require lots of expense to do up, such as this one.

To my horror its been retroed with a diesel :td: which is a very popular practice over here

Most beautiful MX32 I've ever seen, including mine. The RX32 is my favorite car, and yours is the best I've ever seen, so you know what that means. :wink:

Uh, how is THIS one a beater?? It looks in just as GOOD shape as the 2 in the previous pic.

It only needs a good washing, that's all. If you notice in the pic.. they've must of had a recent snow storm... and it looks like it's been driven through some slush and road salt. :|

You must judge your cars, by Concour's standards. lol :roll:

I took its pic after we had some heavy rain. I also dont like the dark patches at the bottom of the doors.
This example has been retroed with a diesel for more economy for every day use :td: so who knows if he still got its original engine! (My guess is that European cressies got the 18r) so thats the first task should I lay my hands on it. Next to go are the crap wheel covers; chrome ones with a set of whitebands will look elegant and classy on it.

That's YOUR car?

Like I said, that thing is in pretty good shape.. just take it to a car wash. Also, why waste time with wheel covers or hubcaps... especially if you hit a pothole and lose one.

It would look great with a set of baby supras for now. lol

How did you use the ae86s 4link? ae86s runs 12mm bolts and x3 run same as a a40/a60 supra/celica and run 14mm bolts?

the ae86 D2 fits with a bit of work , the 4 link fits if you use some 12mm washer's/sleves (thick) and weld them on the car , and use 12mm bolts.

thanx for good feedback!
