cool. I may give it a shot. It will be just for summer trips on the trails. it is about a 30mile drive to the trails we use. about 10-15 of it being highway and the rest two lane mountain road. Sounds like it just might work.
Thanks

just snag a bikini top. either one of the mesh like ones or a canvas, bestop makes one for like 73 bucks, covers the front and back seats. i think it needs a windshield channel that bestop also makes.

too logical and inexpensive

On a side note the dealer added ac pump is toast. Finally turned it on and it has a major knock and rattle/grinding going on..bummer about $200 for a new one. I can do the work my self so I may give it a go in the next few weeks.

I probably wouldn't use it much but on the 100+ degree days it would be nice with the decently sealed up hard top.

My '90 cressida with the 3.0 will pull about 25. Fairly impressive for a 24 year old car. The 7MGE is a great motor.

ya my mileage just depends on how much i wanna hear the whistle. its at the point in its life where a set of larger injectors are needed. 8 psi is boring. and fuel cut at 13psi sucks...
