Yes, I fully understand what you and Johndoe mean. Of course it is fun to have such a sleeper. The expression on people faces when you stomp them = priceless. It is just that… you know… damn it is ugly. No offence.

Kinda like the effect of stomping someone in a miata? I think their hideousness is what makes them so damn cool...try to find a less aerodynamic platform that's not a wagon or van, lol.

Might be a sleeper in Kansas, but Supra powered Cressida's are all over the NY boroughs.

There was an episode of pinks that had a 2JZ swapped one. Hilarious episode, the Mustang he was supposed to race broke down. Then they called in a 2nd Mustang and he broke down.

I'd drive it.

I have a 92 Cressida with a 7MGE.... Stock motor for that year. It will either get turbo'd or I'll do a 2JZ or 1UZ swap one day. People that say they are ugly need to drive one and see one in person. It's a big 4 door, but it's loaded out. Really NICE car IMO. It has a Supra drivetrain stock too. It's basically a 4 door supra.

As cool as I think that is, I'd like to find an old datsun/nissan maxima when they were rear drive just to be even more different. Z-car parts bolt right up.

I think he meant...

Or

Quote:
I love 'em though. so underestimated with a swap like this under the hood they'll kill off or remove a large proportion of a group of people, animals, things, or a good amount of cars out there.
Or as Kotomile suggest, maybe he meant...
