Street Machine



“I BOUGHT my Toyota Cressida over 10 years ago from its original owner, stock as a rock. Not long after, the 7M decided to blow its head gasket, so a 1JZ was dropped in with a Garrett 35R turbo, cams and E85 to make 600rwhp, all with a standard bottom end. The shift-kitted A340 auto has a small stall converter and is operated with a B&M ratchet shifter. Body and paint were carried out by my little brother, who wasn’t happy when I told him I wanted the black and grey two-tone after he spent a lot of time handfabbin­g the metal fender flares and the rest of the bodywork! I haven’t taken it down the quarter in a few years, so I’ll be taking it out soon to hopefully crack into the 10s.”
