Hello everyone! I've known about this forum for a while now, and decided it was finally time to join. I am currently the proud owner of an 83 Toyota Celica Supra P-type. It's my first car and I love it to death. When I was looking for my first car I was trollin craigslist, and stumbled upon the ad for this car. The only pic was a small shot of the passenger side profile, but I instantly knew I had to have it! I've owned it for almost 5 years and it's been a great, fun little car. It currently is an auto trans with 200k miles on the clock, but I have gathered all the necessary parts for a 5 speed swap. I have recently been battling with the old 5MGE trying to fix it's ever so annoying oil leak. after all my efforts it still drips right at the front of the motor. But I will get it all fixed eventually. My future plans are to get BC Racing coilovers with 9k & 7k spring rates, new sway bars, bushings, get a front strut brace, get some wide, low offset 15" rims, and eventually do a 2JZ-GE swap. Not looking at doing any kind of crazy 600+ hp turbo setup or anything. Just want a fun, sporty, good looking sports car I can drive comfortably every day.
Anyways, enough with the boring shit, here's the pix!

Recently got married, and my ONE condition for anything about how the wedding went was I wanted to use the Supra for the getaway car, haha!
So, that's me. Just tryin to keep the J-tin spirit alive one day at a time.
