Aron9000, you should do the DIY Aux-In Cable to get rid of the use of cassette adapter and the wire lol Cleaner sound too.

I wish my dashboard didn't have the airbag cut out for the passenger...

This is the break down I've seen from the majority.
RSP/HT/120 > B on B/HT/120 > HT/120 > any of the 120, and so on...

I was searching for a 97 5-speed for two years here in Chicago, and finally found one with some body damage in Pennsylvania last October. So any 97 5spd is hard to come by. Here is my Classic Green Pearl as it sits now.

That tan/black interior combo is looking good i need to paint mine like that
Thanks man...right now I'm just mind sketching appearance. I know what I want to do to the interior which will be staying with the factory two toned theme, but with my twist. Nothing else as of now...focused on fixing the little minor things it needs.

120 = 97 oem 5spd. 120 was the amount of manual SC's made in 97.

I stumbled upon a Renaissance Red 1997 5 Speed with the Tan and Black interior while i was shopping for mine. I still don't know why i didn't get it.

Default 275,000 Miles on a 1997 SC300 Stick (a 120)




My "120" just tripped over 275k. Still runs great! Motor was rebuilt at 172K (overheated due to a fan clutch failure).

I love the car, but thinking about putting it up for sale. I got a BRZ and my wife is probably getting a company car in the near future, so we'll have one car too many and as much as I love the SC, the BRZ is more fun to drive.

I'll post this in the 120 club also.

Of course any of the 120 97 5spds are highly sought after. Add a hard top and black interior even better.

I think my factory 95 300 DWP w/ black interior is up there. To bad it's auto (not for long) and has a sunroof. In the GS world the white on black color combo adopted the name "unicorn"

Edit: Just realized this was a 2yr old thread.....
