Finally getting round to putting this project up on here. It's a 1983 Toyota Crown MS112 I got from the second owner back in 2008, and it's been a sweet daily since then. Previous owner drove Oxford to Chch every day for a decade or 2, so now it's pushing 375000k. I say sweet daily, but it does go through headgaskets at the standard M series rate. No other probs at all though. The last time it went I found the head is starting to crack up, so decided it was time to swap up to something a bit nicer for trouble free cruising. I've always wanted the burble of a V8 with jap reliability. The wife must actually listen to my ramblings because she organized with a bunch of family and friends a sweet 30th birthday present... She even managed to grab the early 1uz with mid sump, log headders & slip yoke trans! No excuses left now, so the young lad & I got stuck in this weekend.
