New to the family

I live in Colorado and just picked up my Sportcross a few days ago. I have had a few opportunities to take it on some curvy mountain roads already and am absolutely in love with how it handles.

And the brakes...Damn! My son said that he felt his face sliding forward when I nailed the brakes on an empty road.

After I sell my other car, I will be rebuilding the 2JZ and turbocharging it.

Sorry, no pictures yet.

jrich 479,
Looks good. I have some 18" TSW Tanaka wheels on my Supra that I am going to put on my SportCross, and looking at yours, I think they will go great. Clean ride, I love the all black look.

Hey all, new owner of a sportx solar yellow. 192k miles rebuilt title for 2500$. Had to drive over 2200 miles round trip for it.

Hi there, I bought a mint 4WD IS300 a couple of months back. It is currently in storage - I get to see it in about 3 weeks. It has had one owner - and she is 79 - she wouldn't even let my friend test drive it. Need less to say, she never drove it hard. I did a full AA check - and they found zero issues. It has only done 65000 km. I must admit I had a little buyers remorse when I read about it being not great for fuel consumption - a little ironic for me being a greeny and a bit cheap. But hopefully the fact that it is mint will mean there will be no surprises (bills) for quite a while.

But I wonder if I should change the cam belt?

Anyway - I'm very excited to see it / drive it. I'll be making a lot of trips to the local skifield this winter.

Cheers, Murray

Just bought an 05 IS300 Sportcross on Tuesday. Has 113k on it now and should have headers, coilovers, sway bars and some other goodies sometime this month. Unsure on which wheels I am going with. Interior is pretty clean has the normal dash wear though.

04 Sportcross

I am picking up a 2004 Black Sportcross with 74K on Monday. I am very excited. Thanks to the admins for keeping up the forum. Information is always appreciated.

I need to find a remanufactured steering rack with a warranty. Anyone have a suggestion? PM me.

Thanks.

Picked up another PW one, 2002, so have a Thing 1 and Thing 2

Gonna keep Thing 1 loaded one with full leather, heated seats etc stock, and do a nice TT build on Thing 2, the rust free non-optioned (aka lighter weight) one.

Also picked up 2 Sedans for misc parts if anyone needs something send me a message.
