G'day austarletclub and welcome to my other ride.
You can find my Starlet here:
Unfortunately due to moving and having to drive ~150kms per day for work, I had to upgrade my daily from the EP71.
Model: 1998 Toyota Soarer SC300
Engine: 2JZGE (w/VVT-i), 4spd Auto (3spd w/Torque Converter)
Features: Power everything... Power steering, Power seats, Power mirrors, Power windows, Power steering column, leather seats,
I love this car but for very different reasons than the Starlet. By comparison, this car is pure luxury! Yet still quite sporty, the 2JZ has a lot more power than I've ever had before and handles great. For the 2 hours of driving a day it is perfect.
The car is 100% stock. Very quiet. It originally came with Advanti 18" rims, but I blew a tyre and recently acquired some stock Supra 16x8's for cheaper than new tyres on the 18's. I don't plan on doing much to it, as it's a Series III Soarer the stock body kit is already sexy, the only mods I'm thinking are an exhaust (you can't hear it running at the moment it's that quiet).
I'm resisting the urges to head down the path of Manual conversion and/or engine upgrades (ie 1JZGTE/2JZGTE swap or bolt on turbo kit). But I do miss working the gears (I once swore I'd never buy an Auto) and the linear power even though more than the Starlet isn't as fun
