1G-GTEU swapped.





One of member brought Soarer because his XX couldn't run now.
GZ10 Soarer GT.


Take a look at interior door knob for rear passenger!
It's only on the left door.



Soarer share many parts with Celica XX including chassi.
Take a look at seat, same seat with Celica XX (or Supra P-type) but back side have suede-like cloth.



Soarer was flag ship model of Toyota in 80's, so it had all "new high-tech" stuffs at that time.

Same engine with Celica XX 2000GT, 1G-GEU.
Celica XX 2000GT never had auto tranny because it was "sport model" for JDM Celica XX.
But Soarer had 1G-GEU with auto tranny and manual. This car is auto!

Watching and talking time as usual:)



Some member tried Soarer to see difference between Celica XX.

Why not, me too:D

Body rigidity was lot better than Celica XX because of coupe body.
1G-GEU + auto tranny was better than I thought, but I like 1G-GEU + manual better.





Next test drive is M-TEU Celica XX:zzzzz:

It was very torquefull and gentle engine.

Surprize!
I had chance to drive HKS monster Celica XX:eek4dance:


This place was too small for this monster, but it was fun any way:D
I was surprised that engine and car was really smooth and stable at any engine rev.
But when boosted, it runs crazy:eek4dance:

Thanks to all owners who let me drive their rare cars.

Turbo Celica XX, 1G-GTEU, 5M-GTEU, and M-TEU.


I took some pictures of my car with mount. Fuji.


Oops! Mt.Fuji is hiding behide my car:duh:

Excellent pictures as usual Satoshi!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

The wheels that are on the 83 2800GT w/ the flares. Any idea what those were?? They look like Racing Hart C2's.

Major big thanks for showing those interior pics of the Soarer. I don't get to see too many interior pictures of the GZ/MZ Soarers, so some of the little features that these cars have are cool to see.

The restoration on that MA63 looks awsome!!!!

Thanks again!!

Thank you very much for many kind words:)

Chris;
You know sooo much about Japanese wheels!!
Yes, it's Racing Hart, I'm not sure it's C2 or C4 though.
I'll ask owner when I have a chance.

Satoshi: Excellent pics as usual. Thank you for sharing.

The Subaru blue looks awesome on the XX!

The Racing Harts are C4s. I own C2s that's why I know they're not C2s. ;)
