Looks gorgeous now that it's lowered :) Those wheels would look fantastic after a refinish, although they look good now.

Awesome. Completely in love with it, completely pissed we didn't get them.

BTW, the US spec Supras had the adjustible hand pump stuff on the seats as well, my buddy's '82 P-type had them :tu:

It looks fantastic lowered. And yes, those headrest covers are the bee's knees. They even have the Soarer logo embroidered into them. How cool is that?

Welcome to JNC!

Closest I will be to owning one of these will probably be the emblem I have. Bought the wrong style for my SC400. But if the rest of the car is as nice and well built as a simple emblem it's has to be a sweet ride.

Well it pretty much is a MX73 Cressida Coupe, they share the same body style and it's been stated by a lot of people that, that's exactly where Toyota got its inspiration from

Oh yeah another pic when I took it down to the beach this afternoon



This is one of the great misconceptions about the Soarer that it was nothing more than a two door Cressida.
Even though the 1981 Z-10 Soarer filled the gap left from MX-31 hardtop Mark II (or Cressida in the US), the Soarer was the production version of the EX-8 concept car that appeared in 1980. This was Toyota's first large coupe conceived purely for the Japanese domestic market.
Hence why from a styling point of view the Z-10 and Z-20 Soarer's can seem "ugly" and "disproportionate" especially with the low bodyline and large glass areas to people accustomed to "western" automotive styling.
Mechanically, Soarers are very different to Cressidas of the same time period. Trailing link IRS that appeared on the 1981 Z-10 wouldn't be seen for another 4 years until the X-80 Cressida of 1985. The double wishbone mcpherson strut suspension developed for the January 1986 Z-20 Soarer was near identical to the A-70 Supra's released 5 months later.
Hence why these first and second generation cars were so much more than "Cressida Coupes", these were flagship cars that Toyota placed their cutting-edge technology into.

They are great looking, extremely well built cars that are fantastic to drive and after saying that I really want to get my GZ-20 back on the road.

P.S. Really nice car GZ10 :wink:
