Drifthanie my Unicorn (Rootbeer Paint, undercarriage done!)
I'm presenting you my beloved Manual IS300
Bought it in april 2018 with minor bodywork required
Here is the evolution
from the time i got her until today!
A bit of History first!
My name is Math, I'm from Quebec, Canada in a town just a few minutes from the US border. As many of you I felt in love with that car when I was much younger, like 17 years old! I saw that sexy ass for the first time in Gran Turismo but really enjoyed it into NFS underground. a few years later being 24 I bought my house. Like a sign from the gods or some kind of destiny one of my neighbor got one sick as hell black onyx 1.5jz-gte IS300, I was melting every time he passed by my house. Then time passes by again, 4 kids later nearly teenagers, i'm 36, been looking for a new ride since a few months but cannot set my mind. Wanting a Manual IS is hard work to find and it was the first requirement! So wandering craiglist and all wasn't that successfull I've been introduced to a Guy in our Province that can be titled by the "IS Guru". So He managed to get this one imported from Ontario, the Neighbor Province.
The previous owner loved her and took good care of her until he had an small car accident in late 2017. Car has been imported in february 2018 and pass the mechanic and alignment specs inspections in march 2018. Bought her the 9 or April 2018. I know that she was in need of bodywork but everything else was top notch! always well maintained by previous owner that was a Technician at a Lexus Dealer. Still have all booklets and original documentation. The interior was mint, even no sticky dash issue, seats will need a shampoo but overall its examplar for a 16 years old car. Didnt't took long I've started working on her, First thing I've done is Swaping the Shift knob with my Carbon Fiber TRD shift Knob
