Hi Guys - New Melbourne Member

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd join up considering I am a Toyota enthusiast and am now a proud owner of a super clean Cressy.

I guess I'll start with some introductions.
My name is Lee and I'm 24 years of age. I currently live in Preston Victoria with my girlfriend and I currently work for Aegis Global. I am a Subject Matter Expert (sounds important huh? No...) for the Origin Energy campaign (yes I indirectly work for an energy company).
I currently do not have my licence as I have never needed it until recently (bit sad, I know but why pay rego or insurance on something I never needed - public transport was easy between work and uni until now) but I'll be getting it sometime in March.
*Update* booked in for 28th of March.

My Ride:

  • 1990 Toyota Cressida GLX (Silver - Blue Interior)
  • Bought for $3000 and Stock and Grandpa Spec as hell.
  • 180k just ticked over.
  • Straight body, minimal scratches which should come out with a cut and buff.
  • Interior is nearly immaculate.
  • Shifts smooth.
  • Engine had a full bottom end rebuild with new top end gaskets and bolts before I bought it.
  • Previous owner was a grandpa who always garaged and never smoked in it.

Tonight when I finish work I'll post some pictures of it.
I will also add more detail as I'm currently typing this off my phone and I cbf.

Currently my misses is driving it as we both work together anyway. (Since I bought it she refuses to drive her 94 barina until I get my liscence Haha)

I am also interested in contributing to some guides and how to's for MX83 owners.
Guides I will look into creating are:

  • Alarm Install with Pictures and Wiring Diagrams (I didnt find the Net helpful with my own install and I have successfully self installed it after much digging and testing).
  • Back Seats and Parcel Tray Removal (Rear Shocks and Speaker Install).
  • Headlight Removal (Globe replacement).
  • Taillight Removal (Globe replacement).
  • Door Trim Removal (Speaker Install).
  • Cluster Removal (Globe replacement).
  • Dash Fascia Removal (Head Unit Install).

Looking forward to joining this community.

Thanks Jeff.

Unfortunately time did not permit me to take some photos in daylight after work and the only other photos in daylight are from a camera phone. So I think a nice night shot will suffice for now until i get the time to pull out the Nikon in the sun and give it a photo shoot.


Just installed some White LED parker's aswell before taking the photo. It helps the Optical Side Marker lights stand out more.
