Yeah, cool! Enjoy that road trip.

And great cars all these. I can't believe that Supra is 20 years old!

Me neither. Apparently its from the mid/late 60s and has an 800cc engine, that's all I know.

So Toyota's equivalent of the Honda S800 coupe? Bet it's got a wonderfully revvy engine.

Well, the LS400 is bought, and being made ready for the road trip. It's so much car for so little cash:



It's a barge, for sure, but it's super quiet and that engine is so smooth. I can hardly hear it (although that's a bit of a shame, because it's a V. Interior feels newer than my 5 year old Aygo. Few niggles and new timing belt to do.

Already getting quite attached to the old thing.

You sure can bring back a lot of wine, cheese and other goodies, with that one.
Have fun on your road trip.

My Gramps had two of those in the old country (Dominican Republic for me), he had a yellow one and a white one. Those things ran for 30 years before he passed and they were sold, they are probably still running. (Sorry no pics).

That is a beautiful TA22 Celica!

Very original and very, very clean. They are becoming very scarce on the roads now.....41 left in the UK.
