  1. Phase 1: I found a pearl white X8 w/ grey interior on craigslist in bum fuck nowhere Washington. The guy bought it from an old man who drove it and then upgraded and bought a Lexus and then passed it down to his son. After about 1.5 years it blew the head gasket @ 230k and he sold it to this guy in Washington and he replaced the HG and had to sell it due to him moving to Florida. It was immaculate and bone stock. Picked it up for $1500. I drove it for a few weeks and then its passenger brake line blew up and i had to replace the front brake lines and while i was there painted the calipers off the shelf chevy muscle car orange/red for extra cool points. and for some reason i thought it was a good idea to use anti seize on the lug studs. My first time ever working on a car and i was clueless. My first goal was to 5 speed swap it. After a couple hours of research i figured out that everyone's w58's were shit and found a mk3 R154 on a Facebook drift page for $550 at a local shop with a 30 day warranty. After a couple more hours i figured out everything i needed to make the swap happen (shout out to driftmotion and Xcessive): I then found a d-max vented hood in Newberg, Or for $100 and riveted it on for extra jdm fucc boi points. Found some $30 S14 springs for some poor boy low. At this point i had the 5 speed swap done and was waiting for a driveline and i picked up some mk3 supra wheels for $50. I did a couple celebratory burnouts/donuts and realized that open diffs suck and i had a lot of play in the rear end. found a 3.93 MK3 diff in the middle of nowhere Oregon and picked it up. Painted it race car red and me and my friend Jeff McCall installed the Xcessive poly subframe bushings and poly diff bushings, MK3 diff adapter and sub frame re-enforcement plate. Got all the parts installed and got an alignment. I thought i was the coolest dude on the block. Then after about 2 months of daily driving I acquired a rod knock after doing a donut showing off for friends. And that was pretty much my first 1 year of Cressida ownership. I spent the rest my year not doing shit tryna save up and buy a house and i eventually bought a house in Vancouver, WA. That's when phase two happened. I'll post it later if i have time.

    The anti-cress

    So I finally got tired of the gay little nissan I've been calling my track car for the last 4 years and I decided it was finally time to build myself a track slut of the 4 door toyota variety. Goodnight sweet bitch. While the car drove great with the 1j it, I broke everything on the fucker. It taught me what not to do when building a car. My next car is sort of a "lesson learned" type of a build. Enter the white devil. 91 x8 The chassis has 110k on it, bhg, fairly clean body, and cost me a whole 1st gen Ipod touch. This thing is gonna be obnoxious, brightly colored , and hopefully able take a thorough beating in stride. fuck it.
  4. So I've been reading up on Z32 brake swaps for X8 cressidas and even found a swap kit at Flipside customs. http://www.flipsidecustoms.com/toyota-cressida/ Now the question is: If you get the swap kit, can you fit direct bolt-on aftermarket 300ZX brakes on the cressida? I got curious after I found these Z1 brakes and decided to ask. I want to know if the swap kits can allow us to fit more than just OEM Z32 brakes on our cars.
  5. My 86 Cressida isn't starting, turning over, making any noises, etc etc etc. Story began like this: I came back from Texas and hopped in the car after 2 weeks of sitting (maybe even less cause my brother moved it to the side of the driveway) and it started 1st time fine. Struggled a bit but it started and ran. I let it run for a few minutes then i turned it off. I tried to turn it on again shortly after and it would just make a ticking noise and my dash slowly started to lose power. I kept trying to crank till the dash completely died and the car wouldn't make a sound. Now nothing happens. No noises or anything. All of the interior lights, radio, windows and dash do not power on. The only thing that works are my headlights and turn signals. So far I've replaced the battery and main relay fuse. All the fuses checked out fine and my starter is still new.. Im thinking its the ignition switch but i want to be 100% sure. I can't keep buying parts that won't fix this problem..

  8. Hello Toyoers, I saw a 1990 Toyota Cressida with a 2L Diesel Engine and 5 speed manual transmission. How much Miles Per Galon can I expect from this vehicle? It has 238,000 km. Here, the pics: http://www.encuentra24.com/nicaragua-es/autos-usados/vendo-toyota-cressida-1990-diesel/2431686 What do you guys think? Kind Regards, Jorge

  10. I would like to sell my 1985 Toyota Cressida. This thing makes a perfect winter car. It has an automatic transmission, 127k miles, and runs very well. The heat works, the power windows work, the power locks work, the radio works, it'll even come with one of those sweet gadgets that transmits a signal from your ipod onto the car's radio! The wipers do not currently work. I don't know if it's a switch, fuse, or what. The various trim is coming off, and it has a bit of rust but not a ton. The fender and hood have some damage. The front seat is ripped. If you're local, come look at it for yourself! If you're not local, you should probably not travel from three states away to buy a 1985 Cressida. But you can if you feel like it. Sold as is and all that. This is a quiet, comfortable car to drive every day. I want $1,200.
