    I picked up this little beauty of a project car back in October, and she's been my daily ever since. Simply put, I love driving "The Takumi car", it's not quite like any other car out there. It's slow, but it's just so much fun to drive. Fellow OT'er Anfrey can attest to this. :)

    Might I add that I found this in pristene condition, and not more than 2 weeks ago a DHL delivery truck felt the need to backed into my car, which was parked (I was inside when it happened).

    Yours looks good! I miss Mr. 20Valve's Levin hatch, too. :wtc:

    I found an SR5 hatch for a friend, and he bought it a week ago. It was just sitting in a guy's yard, and he only wanted $100 for it.

    It doesn't run, and it looks like some kids tried to play 'Pimp My Ride' with it by painting a white stripe with a green dollar sign on the hood. They also tried to glue a bobble head dog onto the front as a hood ornament. :ugh2: The front and rear bumpers were green, and rather than clean the OEM alloy wheels, they painted them silver. :uh:

    I'm going to help him get it running, since it'll be a daily driver. First priority is to get the 4AC out and replace it with something else. I suggested a 4AGZE, but my friend is also considering a 3SGTE. Cash is a bit tight, so I figure a 4AGE variant will be cheaper. :dunno: Until there is enough money for a carbon fiber hood and/or an aftermarket bumper, we'll probably just paint the stockers black.

    Yeah, it's an SR5. Getting ahold of a GTS in the midwest area/east coast is fucking difficult to do, so I got this little beaut of a slow, slow car.

    My 4AC finally gave up the ghost, so I'm out of my daily driver for a few weeks until I get my 4AGE. FUK. :(

    put a better engine in there and twin turbo that beast or you could just get dual exhaust with flamethower mods and people will think you have rockets attached to you and everyone will fear you
