anyone messed around or researched these before? The more I look into it, the more I want to start building one up. suspension and drivetrain interchangable with altezzas would mean there's a lot of aftermarket for it.

here's some pics

there was one guy at spring drift matsuri with one and ever since then it's been on my mind.

I'm going to bump this old-ass thread, because I'm looking for a new project and these are pretty fucking cheap. Uglier than a IS300 possibly, but I think it has character. Anyone got any relevant info on these things?

Actually, they are better looking than an IS..........

At least they don't look like a jerbil.

You might be the guiny pig on this. These had just came out when I lived in Japan and the only dudes that bought them were very rich younger business men/ yak.
I kind of dig the cars, but not the chrome dubs. Might be neat with some massive weds, or 20in work equips.

I keep comming back to toyotas. Guess it's where I belong!

Yea, I don't mind guinea pigging if I know JZXP has my back when I run into problems (or just lets me know when I'm doing stupid shit).  Not sure what direction I would go with it, but first thing I would do is go dissect it next to an altezza and figure out the similarities.

My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

Jesus, $522CAD car in Japan = $3385CAD car in Canada. I know you can buy an ok IS for less than that, must be your area. Just buy the bodywork or someshit. If I was going to re-body an IS, I'd go JZX110 first. Although I like the ugly look of that Progres, pretty sure it would freak people the fuck out since only a few people would ever know what it is.

 

Pretty sure I read somewhere the Progres had all sorts of wacky tech gizmos. Was like a market test for stuff they weren't sure about putting into Lexus yet back then.

hucker, pm me about that spring trip...kinda want to get this as a Christmas present to myself, but I could hold off if going in on a container could be cost effective (and could snag some other progrés parts at the time)

Bill, a shit IS is like 4k out here...all owned by brown kids who dub them out. No way I could repanel it on the cheap.

Mark, I think 2023...I'll bring one down to you then for the low price of $10,000

We get burned on car prices up here in B.C.

example  http://vancouver.cra...4702847369.html

^^Is 300 255,000k^^  loser is asking 7k

Nac this is awesome.

I will be importing something someday guaranteed.




take off the oil cap, then shit into the valvetrain. if you are like most 7m owners, the semen content will act as a sealant and prevent your hg from blowing for the next 100 miles or so. repeat as necessary.

just paid off my credit card so I'm in for JZXP ugly sedan intercontinental smuggling ring 2015

who knows somebody in windsor? 


It had been two weeks since the 7M had finally locked up in his parent’s driveway. Jason lit a fire in the Venture’s 3400 on the way to work. He had to get there. He had to get to Final Bout2, somehow. Clearly, the Cressida wasn’t going to cut it. He was certain of that. He just didn’t want those cretins to be right. He didn’t want to be a Johnnycomelately. They didn’t need to know though. He could keep this under his hat. -- Crab Spirits

These are ugly as all fuck.

 

I like it.

 

 

Can also agree, I paid off my credit card. Would sell my IS for a JZX90 or 100.


 

post-cressida jzxp is a fitting limbo for us to exist in. hell is a choose-your-own-adventure story and there are no "good"endings.
