I usually like 14's on older cars and maybe 15's. The only way i like larger wheels is if you have bigger brakes that need the space. Large wheels with all that empty space is something i dont like. i guess yours will have bigger brakes right?

I'm a fan of the wheels already on the car, but that's just me. Wheels, like anything for our cars, are very personal. You have to go with what feels right to you. :)

I am going with bigger brakes at a later stage but finding 15's/16's for these cars are hard as hell not to mention expensive :|

Looks like I'll be putting my MarkIII's on

I like those rims too but I'll have to buy the rims first then try them on my car... meaning no turning back once its paid for :td:

All I can say is, WOW! What an awesome car. I was thinking of actually doing something similar. I just purchased an old school 1978 Toyota Corona Coupe (AKA Macho Machine in the Philippines) which I plan to restore. Initially, I was thinking of placing a 7MGE engine in it, but I have decided to instead go with the 3SGE engine from the IS200/Altezza (I will post photos in the forum once I start with the restoration). BTW, I like your color choice too. Please keep us up to date with your restoration and post more pictures!

Best Regards,
Andy



Thanks Andy.... I can tell you that it hasn't been easy by any stretch of imagination and its an absolute money pit.


78 coupe is one of my favorite cars

All that black really does a lot for that paint color. It's looking great!

At some point in the future will the front end be lower to the ground? :mrgreen:

And might you be attending JCCS this year with it?

Yes this is far from being done... I am going to airbag it in very near future.

My plan was to bring it to Toyotafest but its not going to be done by then.
I'll bring it to JCCS for sure.
