New from Sacramento CA
« on: Sep 30, 2021, 07:40:20 am »
Hiya! just recently picked up an 85 GT LB last week. been struggling to find one of these since i was guided away from Mitsu Starions. Something about those G54B engines popping like zits. Managed to snag one but its quite a frankenmobile. Im still beyond hyped for the car to slowly transform into my spirited driver.

Did a vin search on the chssis and discovered it was originally Auto but i purchased it manual. tbh the person seems to have done a great job. and every single panel is from another car. Cel/Supra hatch included. Its nearly gutted sadly and i plan to bring it back since i never plan to make it a race car.

Little bit on me, 22yo and my first real car tbh. Own a 97 4Runner and plan to stay team yota but learning how to do maintanence on stuff is fun. hope to make this sleek machine into my dream and i appreciate this forum already for helping out.
85 RA64 LB 5MT (T3 suspension bits coming soon! :D )
97 4Runner 2wd Auto (showing signs of rodknock..)
