Two times the charm: Ary’s Toyota Starlet SE 1989 on TRD wheels
Vitto Savero

The early generation of Toyota Starlet hold a special place in the hearts of many motoring enthusiasts. For some reason they seem to have that something special that just gets under your skin, a feeling like you’re being just a little bit as a cool racer every time you take one out for a spin. This reputation was quickly earned way back in late 80s when this gen of Starlet was first launched.

Featuring a light weight chassis and strong power plant, it was a package that really rewarded the driver who was willing to put the effort in. So it should come as no surprise then that they have built up a massive following over the years. One of the best Starlet example is owned by Ary. A motoring enthusiasts who lived in one of the most beautiful cultural city in Indonesia, Jogjakarta. He choose this starlet because he has many of four sedans and had been thinking to have something a little different in a hatchback. 

For us personally the different is clearly shown here. It is not everyday you get to see a clean 1989s Toyota Starlet down the street, and it’s definitely not even a single day you get to see one quite like this.

Most of the exterior side has been restored and refreshed to brought back the shines. Ary spent countless hours to searching for most quality and it’s OEM parts to replaces, changes, and complementing several rare OEM from Japan as well from front lip. rear spoilers, side mirrors, etcs. 

One of the best things that Ary installed in this Starlet was an uber rare of TRD wheels set that completely rebuilt long before he had this lady. The stance of this car was also supported by the usage of coilovers which round out the exterior with a pretty overall looks. So after all is said and done so far, we asked Ary if there was anything be would have done differently, and he said that he would change nothing, because it’s exactly how he wanted the car to turn out. For him, the best thing about this car is the way this car sit with a sleek paint and clean wheels, he told us that he was a very happy and always put a full smile on his face when this car sitting on his driveway.

A few months back our new brother, Vincentius Vitto Savero from, Jogjakarta area ventured out and met up with Christianto Harlian Putra to finally shoot his car , it’s a Lexus Ls430 and its ridgy didge. Chris actually bought the car around about March this year because he always wanted a big sedan to achieve his classy VIP style goals. When he got it , the original paint still looks good, had free-rust body, good interior, etcs. Happy with this condition, Chris did not take too long to take her to further step.

Since then its had a full ground up modification which Chris together with his brother who has an experience on building VIP car in Jogjakarta completed. “It started with me hunting all the necessary parts from correct wheels to interior accessories, and I spent the time since early doing this.“

Chris explained us that he’d love a car which first of all she must be street friendly, drives nicely and get reasonable economy (provided you don’t drive it too hard). She also can be entered into show and shines and looks good on car meet up. A car that he can drive it here and there, and drive it home with hassle-free.

Power wise, Chris felt that the car have got enough power to have fun at events, thanks to the 4.3l V8 engines that can easily burn the tires and it was smoother than buttered teflon too, and liked a rev without ever getting hot and bothered about such enermous treatment.

The car currently sits tightly on a set of 20-inch red Zedd Wheels which sat beautifully inside the fenders when aired out. Its no surprises here, Chris opted for a complete Air Suspension kit fitted with complete Air Lift struts controlled by a management system installed by Air Custom Jakarta, which allows him to control the height of each wheel. He plans to upgrade to a full ACCU-AIR management system soon so that he is able to control his ride height via his phone.
