Adding to the collection

Post by Drift Limo on Sat May 09, 2015 7:39 pm

I've had my 1986 mx73 now for about 13 years, i figured it was time to add in another Cressida.



Its a super clean 89 i just picked up.  everything works, bone stock with the exception of megan coilovers and some exhaust work. So far I love it.

That's legit dude. I also have a mx73. Currently dealing with voltage drop/ starter solenoid issue and oil leak. What were some of the first few repairs you made (I'm talking only engine, I want to do suspension and cosmetics last)

Anything...everything. I cannot stress basic maintenance enough. It is more important than any mod you'll do to the car. replace everything you can, even if it's expensive or a pain to do. Filters, gaskets, bearings, bushings, seals, all of it. One of the best things I did to my MX73 was to replace the steering rack. The car drove noticeably better afterwards and my old rack wasn't even that worn out. Get the car to be as "new" as you can, it makes a better stating point for mods and it makes for a more reliable, efficient car.

I been good man, busy, but good. Ive got a ton of exciting stuff for the MX73 to put on, so I will have cool stuff to share soon. And unfortunately I hate those wheels. They are the only complaint that I have about it. They are knockoffs called STR wheels, and they don't fit the car at all. 17x10 +20 wheels apparently fit a stock fendered MX83 like crap. They rub all the time, on everything. Super annoying thing for an otherwise perfect car.

Is that a stock 89 grille? I like it better than my 92 grille. I'm new (dumb) to Cressida's so bear with me on all the ?s Very Nice Cressy by the way! What a Face

As far as I know, it is the stock grille. I'm new to X83s myself so I'm still learning about them, but I want to say I read that early X83s had this grille with the Cressida emblem, while later X83s had the Toyota emblem. And thanks, I appreciate the compliments!
