Bosozoku Starter – 1986 Toyota Cressida

October 10, 2013

It’s a wonder how an obscure Japanese subculture from the post-war era has had an influence on the Japanese classic car scene, 50 years later. It’s also transformed what was until recently considered a large, floaty Japanese approximation of a Buick into an object of desire for a generally young group of people. The trend is not widespread in North America, but is spreading, and there are still various options to get in on the ground floor. Extensive research on the internet and Facebook (huh?) shows that the Toyota Crown is one of the more popular cars to modify. In North America, the Crown was known as the Cressida, and we’ve found this 1986 Toyota Cressida with period-looking Hoshino Impul wheels and lowered suspension in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA for $3500.
