I was pumping gas today in the 79' Supra when I was approached by a guy saying "Hey nice Celica"

Well for those who don't know me I like to say back "Thanks, if you want take a look."

We got into a discussion, showed him the original documents it came with and he mentioned this site. Searched yahoo and found it.

A little bit about myself.

At 13, I wanted to get into something besides riding a bike for a hobby (lol) so of course playing Need for Speed wasn't good enough and decided I liked cars in general. My favorite were the old cars on the game. So I did a little bit a searching on the net and found a local import tune/shop.

They took me for a ride in a T04r SPL 1994 Toyota Supra. I believe it was running 20ish psi on race tune. BOY THAT GOT ME HOOKED.

So I'm currently 18, with a record of 4 Toyota Supras.

ben - What are your plans for it


Thanks!!
My plans are to keep it as a daily all original until I finish my 87. I want to do a Precision single on a 2jz. Once I finish the 87, I wanna keep it in the garage until I die :)

All original paperwork, I bought it from a designer manager at Houston Texas, who moved to the plant here and Kentucky and sold it to me. He saw the first 10 roll out of the plan on his trip to Japan (Back when he worked at Texas) and bought it. It was from the same batch as the Black 79 in motortrend against the 200zx (I believe or maybe a 240 I can't remember)

I love it. I get plenty of compliments including a guy "Ben" at a gas station who told me to come here :D [/quote]
