Wow!! (jaw dropped). The car looks great!! Congratulations. Glad it's gone to an Alltrac (& Toyota) enthusiast. The car looks mint. What are your plans with the it? Keeping it stock? Again, Congrats. That has got to be one of, if not the cleanest ST165s I've seen in a while. ST165s are my favorite.

I think that is the cleanest 165 I've ever seen!

I'm still on the fence as to whether this will be a long term keeper or not. I LOVE this car (very reminiscent of my 89 GTS I had back in the day). I'm working on a potential 4-post lift storage system in my garage so I can be sure it (and my 93 and MR2) are kept in tip-top shape and out of the elements. But if it comes right down to it, there's not prayer in the world that will get me to offload my 93. The MR2? Well, it's just too fun. :)

Fortunately, I have a very understanding and tolerant wife who let me get it anyway (and save those other decisions for later).

Regardless, I'm definitely keeping this stock. I'll probably start going through the engine bay, perfecting the little things. Maybe a set of wheels and (maybe) a low profile cat-back, but that will certainly be the extent of it. Aside from that one super-low mileage 165 that popped up on the radar not long ago, I've never seen one this clean. I want it to stay that way.

It's a Kenwood parametric EQ. The overall system is pretty nice - new components all around (haven't figured out what brand yet), Kenwood amps under the seats and a 12" JL in a nicely done, sealed enclosure. It was a pretty sweet bonus to the purchase!

There's also a radar detector installed - circa early 90's I'm guessing. Everything was professionally done.

That is the key to owning more than one car, or toy. An understanding wife. :)

Do your best to keep it. It looks like it's already in a good home, and in good company. It would be a shame to sell it to someone who would not care for it. I'd keep it very close to stock myself.

Yeah...my wife is "tolerant" of my car passion too lol, but she actually enjoys the cars too, so it's not that big of a deal either!

Thank you sir. :) I'm wanting an old school EQ for my DD, and that would fit the ticket.

I'll get the specific model number if you'd like - seems to work nicely!
