I have been a V8 owner, exclusively, my entire life, however, a far more broad minded Mate has worn me down with spreading my wings. So I'm relatively new to Classic Jappa's in general and certainly the beauty of an RA28 had somehow escaped me until now. I'm not young and being a profound petrol head, yes, that's embarrassing to admit !!
I recently did the 9hr return trip solo, just for the Classic Celica Appreciation Day in NSW - WOW, what an event !! Everything about it is what owning cars should be about, the venue, the cars and the crowd. As much as anything, I want to get a classic Toyota, just because of the type of community involved. I've spent over 30yrs going to Summernats (yes, all of them), hot rod and street machine shows all over this country, and a couple of others - but none seem to get your blend of cars, fun and (the right) attitude.
As the title says, I'm desperate to purchase a RA28, so if anyone is ready to sell, or can point me in the right direction, I'd REALLY appreciate it thanks. I'm keen on getting a very good one, as I just don't have the time for another project, which just stops me actually going and enjoying the scene. I have an old bike and an old Val ute projects, so my knuckles are in no fear of healing fully, I just want to jump right into Toyota scene and do some actual driving and club outings.
Yes, I have a good wad of money to buy the right car but that's not because I'm rich - I came home from CCAD determined to own an RA and went about selling my matching numbers XC GS ute which was pretty special in many ways. I'd only owned it just 15mths, after searching for the right one for freakin' ages but that's how much I want to get into the Toyota community.
Thanks for the opportunity of being a part of this forum, cheers,
