Finally home this week after 10 years. Looks nice in pics but lot of restoration work ahead
Fires right up every time and amazingly the JDM gas is 10 years old but no issues
Tires haven't lost any air in 10 years and that was before it was shipped
205 will be stripped to shell and every inch of car will be gone over to preserve it
to like new condition and avoid any rust even though never going to see snow again .
This a weekend fun car so no rush to drive and for me part of fun is restoration .


When i got gas kid working at station goes "sweet supra"!!!! LOL
Bought as a 30 B-day present to myself and now here i am 40 next
year so it will be 40th B-day present to myself .

Oh also anyone interested in 3 spokes and near rally spec jdm winter tires
PM me .

FINALLY! tongue.gif Wow, that's a long wait. So why has it taken you so long to get it back there - just the whole process of trying to get it into the country and registered with silly laws?

BTW, do you still have a TRD quickshifter available? I PM'ed you ages ago and have been trying to hunt one down tongue.gif

No getting here was the easiest part
Life got in the way
Women, Money, Career , House all
got in the way, sometimes all at once !!
Plus i kept buying other "projects" and not
focusing on 205

I have so many requests for that shifter
Will let you know .

Well no exciting ST205 updates but big news is i added another RHD toy to the stable

White 1998 MR2 Hardtop (Beams) w/ 45K miles shipped from SE Asia in a crate 13' Long . 6ft wide x 5ft tall
Cost was 5800 total including car cost to my door if your curious .
Both 205 and 98 have identical Recaro confetti interiors, TRD steering wheels,Optional JDM Toyota Pedal kits and even similar floor mats

Beams will be going into my White 94 MR2 which already looks like a 98 .
98 then will be getting 2GR with TRD supercharger and Evora close ratio 6spd which i sourced from OZ and UK
If i didn't have all of these toys the ST205 be 100% done long ago !!!

Pics up soon

Better update the MR2 tally..... you sir, need to seek some serious 'help' tongue.gif

So is the '98 ever going to be road registered, or a track day weapon?

Any updated and pics on the projects? I've been a member for a while. I spend most of my time on Alltrac.net as member and Moderator. But will be posting here more often as I have a few ST20X chassis cars as well, that I will be working on.
