    Just thought i'd post this up!

    1991 Toyota Soarer
    100,000k's
    V8 Auto
    Airbag Suspension
    Sunroof
    Leather
    Digital Dash
    2.5" Exhaust with hi-flow cats and hotdogs ( Got this installed as i hate nothing more than a V8 you can't hear! )

    I know what some of you are thinking, Why did i buy a Soarer when i could've had a LS1 for the same money?

    The answer is simple, Basically my gf wanted me to buy a sporty coupe or a euro car ( beamer, merc etc ) and i wanted a V8, this is the comprimise!

    Picked her up 3 weeks ago for $6500 with 98k on the clock!

    Ill post up some pics later tonight
    Feel free to comment!

    Lol forgot to add i had over 10 to play with.

    And don't have any plans other than the 100k service ( thats steep! ), like the car as a whole!

    Nice, I quie like the soarers. One of my mates had a TT one, it was quite quick and fairly nice to drive.

    Nice pickup!

    i raced one in a mk4 supra @ 8psi and left him 1/2 a length behind by the line, he pulled ahead by 1/2 length in 1st and most of 2nd.
