OK, based on my 60% reduction in price on Toyota spares I was wondering just how much I could build a Toyota Supra kit car for.

Just order all the spares a bit at a time and put 'em together, just like an airfix kit.

Any comments? From a technical perspective is this possible do you think?

Sorry this has nothing to do with skylines but I wondered if someone had done similar with a sky and could share experience.

Maybe if I buy a knackered supra and do her up, F&F stylie. Make a 10sec car, well kinda.

considering Toyota mark up lets say 70%, leaves you 10% off the list price of a Supra oh and that nut you didnt tighten up. whoops. NO warranty.

Shucks. not bad while it lasted :)

Next best thing, get a kit car and put a supra engine in it. etc.

If you`re thinking of doing a kit look no further than a Dax Tojero (AC Cobra) My oldest & closest mate built 1. Took him 5 years mind,but the build is superb & i know for a fact its won a few trophies. Small block Chevy (i think) putting out 650bhp in a car that weighs about the same as a can of beans. Ive been behind the wheel a a few times & there aint nothing like it that ive ever experienced. Ive no doubt it could show some of the heavily tuned GTRs a thing or 2. Think its up for sale right now for about 30k.
