How we all doing?? I'm Nick, 31 from England, currently an unemployed mechanic (no sympathy, was my fault :smile: ) have a lovely 1992 Aristo 3.0V my previous car list is too long to list, but I've been heavily involved with Toyota's for the last 8 or so years, mainly Supra's. I set up www.clubaristo.co.uk last September. Already spoken to Aaron, and hope we can work together between the forums to share the knowledge.

It is great to finally be a member of an Australian Aristo site.
Congrats guys on a great site so far.
I am a 33yo, Married with 3 kids, Account Manager for Canon, Melbourne boy all my life, who has always loved toyota's.
I am the proud owner of a Silver 1996 model with sunroof and leather which I have owned since Feb this year.
The cars I have owned. (Don't Laugh!)
1. 1976 Toyota Corona complete with baby cack mustard paintwork
2. 1989 Toyota Camry Ultima
3. 1995 Ford Futura Wagon (about to sell it) I was a pro rock musician
4. 1989 Toyota Cressida Standard 7M (also about to sell)
5. 2002 Magna Wagon Company car that was written off (long story)
6. 2007 Mitsubishi 380 Platinum Company Car
So as you can see, I finally have my 'Sports car' that I have longed for. I was going to buy a JZX100, but this was more appealing with the 2J engine.

'79 rx7 w/ 13B bridgeport turbo, hilux diff, microtech ect...

everything else is stock. looking into exhausts, rims, and suspension at the moment, and getting the rest of the stereo finished off

hope to see the perth guys on a cruise one day as there seems to be quite a few of us on here... _________________

I’m here to swell the ranks of the Perth Brigade.
Love cars, DIY electronics, ear bleeding clean sound with bass that rattles the eyeballs, (car and home Hi-Fi) designing and building stuff, hockey and squash and the challenge of blending all that with a harmonious family life.

Had some wheels over the years:
HG Holden (Original classic)
’81 Toyota T18
’88 VL Commodore
’85 Exa Turbo (thimble sized turbine worked very hard…..)
’90 MX6 Turbo Red auto (Good fun, but let down by self shifter)
’86 Pontiac Fiero V6 GT (Had the looks, but needed better brakes)
’90 Mitsubishi VR4 Black manual (Great car)
’90 VN 5L Calais white (My first new fuel injected 5 litre, “massive” 165kw, swore I’d never buy another)
‘78 tray-top ute (0–100 in 6 minutes, but dangerous to take shopping cause there’s nothing you can’t bring home)
’90 Magna (It was a fill-in, so no comment)
’90 VN 5L Calais (Bought another one, disgusting mushroom colour, but it was cheap)
’91 MX6 Turbo white manual (Greater fun than the red one, torque steer heaven)
’92 Black Nissan Bluebird Attessa 4WD Turbo (highly modified, a blast!)
’92 Soarer T/T (Miss those doors) not!)
’97 Black Chaser JZX 100 (Best modified car I’ve had so far)
’92 Hyundai XL Sprint, complete with working tacho and spoiler (Slight misjudgment on Aristo arrival, so this is my temporary punishment )
’94 silver Aristo arrival mid May. (Really wanted a black one, might still happen…..)
Hi guys Jay here, finally got around to jotting down an intro.
I bought a 93' Aristo a few weeks ago that was complied but unregistered due to an engine issue (low compression on numbers 4 and 6). I have her in bits at the moment fitting the immobiliser and alarm but hope to get her registered in the next few weeks.
I am still very busy building the house at the moment so only have short bursts of time to get things going.
Myself, 33yo, 4 kids and live in a shed (sums me up pretty well). I have taken 6-9 months off work to build my pole home on 5 acres in Brigadoon and so far so good. When I am working I work as an Electronics tech, Communications rigger or Project manager for the mobile phone industry. I'll be going back to that when the roof is on my house in 2 months or so.
Previous rides, nothing worth mentioning. I got 80% through a 13B turbo conversion into a Corolla but sold the house and broke it up for parts. A few houses later and I've finally got a toy to play with. I have my XG Falcon ute, My GU Patrol and the wife's 99 Magna as daily drivers so the Aristo can be taken off the road as required when modifying bits and peices.
Anyway, I hope to be an active member and hopefully meet some of the Perth crew once I have my engine sorted. Anyone got a well priced 2JZGTE spare?
Hi. my name is Jeremy, username is my nickname. I live in Canberra, almost 20, currently studying science at ANU (dropped engineering)
im not an aristo owner (sadly ) because i spend too much $ on food, my computer and my current car (been through 3 CV joints in 1 month for perspective)
my current car (and only one i've owned) is a 1993 WA ford festiva, and i drive it as if it was a wrc rally car (hence cv's among other things going bye-bye) but on the plus side, it does mad handbrakies, tyres are cheap (woo, 13"s) and i save money on fuel, cos i can run it on 91 ron, and it's 6.5L/100km (well, that's if i granny it. it's more 8.5L/100km) so on the whole, it's a good, reliable little car for a poor uni student for me.
begs the question though, why did i sign up here if i dont have an aristo...
well, as of probably September last year, it has been my dream car. never seen one in real life sadly (apparently there is 1 in canberra...never seen it tho)
i had taken 6 months off uni, and with the prospects of lots of money, i got the idea in my head to get a car by x-mas. i was mainly looking for a VIP style car (so, more cruising, and way less flogging, so i dont break stuff as i do now) and someone posted up a pic of an aristo. i was curious as to what they were cos i had never heard of one before, and after looking into it (basically, looking at some pics and reading that it had a 2JZ) i was hooked. as stated, i never got one, but im hoping to have one i can call my own some time in the nearish future when i'll have enough money to buy and maintain one.
if i get one, plan is to make it all cruisy/VIP, so to start, i'd be looking at a black or white aristo with leather and sunroof and hopefully TT (depends on insurance i guess). then get a kit (seen some i like, nfi on the names of em tho lol. someone here has the closest to what im after as their avatar) some nice deep dish wheels, decent ICE setup, lowered, possibly on bags, and afew engine mods (nothing extreme...im used to 31.5KW of fwd crapness. big power + RWD would prolly = me wrapped around a tree)
so um, yeah... that's my long winded post about me and my non-aristo ownership lol
oh, and if anyone lives in canberra and owns an aristo, i'd be most keen to have a squiz at it
forgot to mention major reasons i signed up here. 1) read up on/ogle/envy ppl with aristos, and also learn more about them. 2) im the sort of person that knows what i like and want, but has nfi on how to get there on my own, so also could be a learning experience.

Hi! This is my first post on these forums!
My name is Simon and I am the brand new owner of a two tone (white on silver) 95 Aristo V. I have been waiting for this car since december 06 so it is awesome to finally have it in my possesion!
I live in Canberra and I have'nt seen another Aristo here yet, but I hope too soon.
I work for a bank as a mobile lender and have lived in Canberra most of my life. I am 31, married and have a beautiful 1 year old daughter.
MX83 Cressida with 1JZ auto
MX73 Cressida stocko
Mazda 808 sedan 13BT
Mazda RX3 sedan 13BT
Mazda 808 wagon's X 4
Mazda 808 coupe 13BT
Mazda RX2 12A
So as you can see I am a bit of a rotary/mazda freak but have come to love toyotas now as well!
See you all around!
I guess i found out about aristo's around the year 2000 when a friend purchased a front cut, had been in the back of my mind for years that i'd probably want one at a later stage..... and here i am now. _________________
My name is Dustin, I'm 20 pushing 21 I'm not married but close to it! Have a 2yr old son. I'm a 2yr+ active member of supraforums.com.au and currently own a 98 toyota supra SZR which is soon to be a RZ with a 2jzgte conversion currently underway and almost complete!
I am using a JZS161 VVTi 2jzgte which I have converted to a supra spec engine (Sump, PS pump, etc etc) for my project and have spend some time getting it all together! So basically joined the forums as I have 2jzgte knowledge, have some aristo engine parts to sell and also looking at buying a 95+ black with leather aristo later this year or early next year depending on funds and supra mods!
I know a few guys/girls on here from supraforums and know Aaron (Nakedterror) personally, I must say he and who ever else have done a great job on the site so far and it was a great idea.
G'day all, Names Ben
I dont have an Aristo nor do i have one on order, but after my first test drive i know i have to get one... im just not sure when. Im an apprentice fitter and turner in sunny Adelaide. 20 years old. Ive had a few cars for my age including:
91 toyota corolla hatch
1987 s4 Rx7 13b turbo
2001 surbaru forester
and my current ride is a 2003 4x4 Hilux.
I do an arse load of driving to and from work, and im always driving fair distances to ride my motorbikes. The Lux is an awsome car but its turning me into an old man as it shakes my joints loose every trip. The idea is i get an aristo chuck a towbar and some rims on and im in driving nirvana.
