Hey, James! Great video about one of Japan's best sedans. I remember seeing one in Japan and the owner was blown away that I wanted to ride in his car. Luckily, he romped on it and that single turbo 1J was... Yeah, it was like being in a 2JZ Supra. Fast and I enjoyed it. The R33, GT-R was a better car. Back to the Chaser though. There's people building up Cressida cars in the USA like their Japanese counter parts. Same with the old Crowns. Thankfully, Toyota classic RWD cars have a large following in the USA. As, one day I plan to build another one of these cars. Thank you, Donut Media and team. (:
