2nd the first comment, this car is awesome. They did a nice resto on it, dropped it on some proper era wheels. Very cool.

good lookin 3rd gen. I love that profile shot. it has a period look to it, more so if it was stock.

Such a beautiful classic. Too bad someone had to ruin the suspension.

The front kind of reminds me of a period Chrysler landyacht. When you look at it that way it's kind of a sad story... weird alien lookalikes descending and eventually taking over the world...

I thought this was the (formerly Horizontal Blue) MS50 featured on JNC at one point, until I did a quadruple take and saw that it was a later car on original 92s instead of the earlier car on the reissue wheels. I know it recently changed hands, but I thought it was weird to see it outside of it's former SoCal home.

This one has less rake and looks to be more original, though. Maybe it served as inspiration?

I'd prefer this with a rake and slotted mag wheels.

I don't like Japanese cars... not even the early ones usually (some are OK) and certainly not a Toyota in general. but this thing is sweet.

I live in CA which seems to be ground zero for this type of stuff you're bound to have run across eventually, even grew up in the shadow of Toyota HQ USA and can't believe I've never seen one of these. totally sweet old school ride. paint and everything seems to be original and impressed with just how long and sleek it is.

Almost Rambler American-esque.

These never made much in-way, as you got closer and closer to Detroit.

It cool to see my car getting some love. To me these cars want to be black and lowered. I have been working on this car for a few years now and wasnt until after I did body work and paint that i saw that so-cal car had been painted black and lowered on meshies. The suspension is still a work in progress and i havent cut or modified any original parts (yet) and i now sits with a slight rake.

what i wouldn't give to see one of these in stock trim. hard to believe these really were imported here.

@calvin: i agree. total chrycorp landyacht lines. looks like an imperial to me.

@ anon Crown owner:

your car gets points for having stepped-lip 92's, the rake fits. i'd rather see this car on modified static suspension than the airbags the socal guy ended up going with.

do you have pics of the car before you started body work and resprayed it? what was the color?
