So, what had happend was I accidentally found myself with six cars again in December. As my homeowner's asscoiation can bearly deal with my Cressida being outside, I had to use some clutch problem solving to keep three cars in a two car garage. Ended up throwing the Mark II and Miata on dollies and pushing them against the wall to make space for zee German interloper. When I sell this house, I'll be sure to mention the three car garage...
It was supposed to be a temporary arrangement, but my lazy ass only just sold the Bimmer Saturday.
Anyway, it's back to working on the wagon now that I can actually get
to it again. I keep all my projects on battery tenders, and damn if the Mark II literally started on the first crank. Love Toyotas!
First order of business was to get it off of the dollies. Check that suspension droop!
During the hibernation, its antique plate expired, so this morning I went down to the tax office to renew it ($61 for five years, score!) and applied to use year of manufacture plates. So much better than the godawful standard antique plate with a buggy on it!
So yeah, excited to get back on the road with this thing.
Next steps are kinda fluid at this point. I've got some headlight mods to install and I have a whole new taillight set I'm going to clean up and paint. There's nothing mechanically wrong with it now, so I'm just going to keep working on the paint, finding small projects to work on, bolt on some cool old school stuff, and most importantly drive
