      Ownership history
      Imported in 1998 and I became the UK second owner, also in 1998. Nothing modded or changed since then, car still looks the same today, over 20 years later, as it did in 1998. Same wheels to same paint. Its proved bullet proof with only one non service item failing, a holed a/c condenser in 2003. Full service history car with a full set of MOT certificates.

      It was the only car, daily driver in the early years of ownership doing 12k miles a year but has since 2003 been a second car to go on to become a car amongst many so that the annual mileage from 2015 is only a few hundred per year.

      The car underwent a comprehensive underneath refurbishment in 2017 with a galvanized sub frame and all new OE bushes and arms fitted while they could still be purchased from Toyota. All wheel bearings were also changed as well as roll bars, links etc. The underside was rust treated whilst the rear frame was off the car and painted with POR 15. Then, in Spring 2019 a complete change of the front suspension arms, bushes, links and roll bar completed the underside overhaul. The dust shields, 4 new Toyota Bilstein shocks and wheel bearings were replaced in 2016 so the car has been restored to drive as a new car would. After all the new suspension components were fitted, the car was treated to a full chassis tuned by Centre Gravity.

      Not very often on show these days, usually garaged, It did get out to make a rare public appearance on the club stand at NEC classic car show in 2016.
