My Old Supra.

Just been reminded of my old Supra because the current owner has contacted me through the Supra club and asked for my Email, its now in Germany after going to live in Holland in 2010, it will be nice to know how its doing now, so I thought I would put up a few pics of it, I can add some details if anyone is interested?
First pic is how it came to me.

That's quite a transformation! I love Supra's - it was a close call between one of them and my GTS-t. A Supra is still high on my 'To own' list!

Nice mate, I preferred it in black, but it did look a little odd using mr2 indicators! Would have been better if they were clear though.

Really nice car, post the specs

Out of interest, how did you find the handling? Is it as tail happy as people say, or is it more the case that you have lots of grip UNTIL you overstep it?

Thanks I think the tail happy bit comes from people driving them with either crap tyres, bad geometry setup, or just plain don't know how to drive a RWD car, mine was fine.

I'll have a dig and post up the spec, and maybe a couple more pics of the body kit going on.
