Default I'm new here!

Hello everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself on here cause I know I'm gonna be on here asking some questions for you all aha... I'm from canada and I imported myself a nice clean rust free 1993 SC400 from the southern states (can't find those up here really) plus I got a sweet deal on it, I knew some about the car before I bought it, but I'm far from a pro, the car needs a bit of interior work which I'm working at, I bought myself another SC400 that had some body damage for parts, (got a sweet deal on that one too) this one didn't run so I got it for cheap but I got it home checked the fuses and it was just the 150 amp main fuse fixed that and she fired right up haha lucky the guy I bought it off wasn't the smartest, anyways so I've got this nice clean SC400 that I'm planning to clean up and whatnot, and I know lots of you guys say the 2JZ-GTE swap into an sc400 is harder and expensive, but I'm eventually gonna give it a go, I'll probably post some pictures of my progress on this thread too just for the heck of it.

How much did you pay for the SC if you don't mind me asking?

Pretty clean SC from the exterior. Those wheels aren't too bad. Thank goodness they weren't 30 inchers.

$800!! It's not running though so I'm in the process of figuring that out and it only cost me $40 at the border

The interior is a bit rough, I bought it mostly cause I'll never find an exterior like that up here in canada:P
The tires were rubbing at the front:P I understand the style down there is big chrome rims:P you get funny looks up here for those hahaha

Welcome to CL.

It does not appear that bad. It looks decent from the pictures. I have seen a lot worse. I want to see the interior. What did the previous owner say about the running condition of it? Are you going to swap parts from the one you already have, or buy new things for this one?
