Been a reader of the printed mag since it came out. I was driving a '71 datsun pl521 when I fisrt started reading the mag, but I sold that, and just recently picked up a cressida, so I figured I'd make an intro post and show some pics of the x7 I just got
. I know it's not really a nostalgic car yet, but give it time, lol.
I finally picked up an x73 last wednesday, along with a turbo mk3 supra. Traded a stock s13 coupe with an rb20 for both cars. I'll pick the supra clean, and drive this until my ka-t coupe gets running, lol. Then I'll be dropping the 7mgte into this. Can't wait to start blowing headgaskets!! The car itself is super clean and straight, but the seats are kinda shit. The rest of the interior is good though, so I can put up with it for now...
Anyway, factory 5spd/lsd so that's a plus! Here's some pics...
Picked these up a while back for $100 off a t-bird. Did alot of polishing on them and they look okay. Trying to get some better offsets, but they'll do for now. 16x8 +10, meh. Was thinking of painting them, but the black actually looks pretty good on the car .
and here's some dirty pics I took the other day after chopping the springs and putting my wheels on. Car looks pretty sick . Just sitting on cut springs now, but I've got my suspension techniques supra springs and some agx's for it. The end height should be about the same, if not I'll cut the new springs to bring it down more, lol. Love the ride height, might just want a tad higher in the rear, but not much.
Also in my possession but not on the car yet are a nardi woodgrain wheel I scored for free from a friend, and luxis diamond acryllic shift knob. I'm a sucker for bubble shifters, so sue me, lol.
