808 Project

Written by : Posted on April 27, 2011 : 2 Comments

It is unbelievable that it has been over 20 years these cars roamed our streets in abundance. Japanese vintage luxury sedans are becoming very hard to come by nowadays, specially in this shape. The good news is the better looking ones are being sourced out by enthusiasts in this community. Ralph Sabio from Hawaii has had this Cressida for five years now and he still remembers driving it stock in his high school years. Seeking suspension parts for this car has been a difficult task, he had no other choice than to go custom. After two years and several sets of wheels, he finally found a full set of SSR Longchamp xr-4’s in the size and offset he really wanted. His Shakotan project was coming close and he’s very enthusiastic about the progress he has made.
