hi guys...

i'm an ex MA61 owner who's going to start some mods on my MX73, which is almost the same thing anyway... except it has 4 doors and Aus version has the twin cam 5m-ge.

i had the Supra about 10 years ago, i sold it when i went to Japan. i'd intended to buy another one when i got back but while i was there i discovered the early Chasers and Mark2's, like the GX71's and 81's. anyway when i got back i bought the MX73 with plans to build it up, but i also really wanted a genuine GT type performance car to do some track days and some drifting.... so i imported a JZX90 Mark2. i chose a stock auto for easy compliance (plus it was cheaper), then converted it to manual, fitted some Teins, a Cusco and basically derestricted the inlet and exhaust, ended up with 225rwkw's too :naughty:
the car proved very good as a track car, but a bit too expensive to risk as a drifter!! so after about 2 years i sold it and finally decided to get stuck into the Cressida.

plans are fairly simple, convert to 5 stud, convert to manual and fit a good LSD. i'd originally planed to go NA-2j, but i sort of like the 5m-ge so i'll see how this goes to start with..

Welcome my fellow Cressida brother!
This forum is way better than the Cressida forums.
Better info, better people, and wisdom.

Ohh hey, I've seen wind deflectors on a few Aus Cressidas at all four doors. I think they were factory because one of them (I think it was the driver's side) said "Cressida" on it. Have you seen this, or know where I can get some?

Welcome, I also have a MX73, as well as a MA61, 2 RA65, and a MA71. This is a great place to find good info. You should check out toyotacressida.net as there is a lot of Cressy owners from Aus.

here's a few pictures of my old Supra. it was a 1983 model, 5mt, dk burgandy in colour. it was stock expect for extractors and a 3" stainless exhaust. i just lowered it 50mm.




rt36, i haven't noticed any door window deflectors on the mx73, i think i've seen them on the mx32 though

That's a beautiful mkii. I love the color too.
What's the bike?
I'm saving up for a Triumph Daytona 675 right now.
Do you still ride?

thanks, i really liked the colour too. seemed every Supra i looked at was either red or white so finding this one was a bit different, plus the interiour colour was dark maroon which was cool too.

the bike is a 1993 Yamaha YZF750SP

i sold it a few years ago too. i still own a road bike though, a 1980 GS1000S

although i don't do much road riding anymore, i've built the same model historic race bike

That's awesome man, I love the classics.
I had an '06 Raven R6 about a year back.







I miss it so much... but I had to sell it because I didn't have a car and needed one for school.

Anyway, I know of a Black '85 L-Type in my area. It's stock other than a swapped 6m, no other mods at all. Interior is so-so and the body is clean.
Might be $$$ to ship it though.
