Default Intro...97 Toyota Celsior

Been a long time lurker but finally pulled the trigger and picked up a 1997 Celsior with 41,000km.

The car is in fantastic shape inside and out...it even still has the original plastic protector on the door sill and dead pedal.

I am planning to mod it to a certain extent but want to keep it clean...my days of super aggressive fender rubbing fitment with mad camber is many many years behind me as I am approaching mid-40's. I love the comfortable quiet ride so want to retain that as much as possible while still improving the look of the car..

Have spent a lot of time reading many threads on here already and it is full of great info. I hope to update this thread with my own project progress from time to time...

Here are some pics of my car:

Welcome and your ride is clean....I love that its white with black interior. Perfect combo.

P.S. Just noticed the car (fender) has sidemarkers, cool.

I noticed it does not appear that you have the air suspension. Could you post the chassis code? I am curious because it is a JDM Celsior.

The car must have used at Yokohama. The radio setting is telling me so.
