  • Picked this up from Mike(Supra Newb) with a Rod knock. Slid a 5M into her, did a few other things, and shes back on the road again. Big Thanks to Bob(Talksoup AKA the E-thug) for letting me take over his garage for 3 weeks. To Mark(RA24man) for GIVING me his old 5M, when I called looking for an oil pump. To Shawn(SMP7mgte) for 5M parts, cause I never thought Id own one again....

Looks really good Mike! Which Supra are you going to bring to the Kirkland meet this year?
Unfortunately, I cant keep both. I had planned to keep Silver car as playtoy/race car, but I lost the race against rust-Its getting parted out. Some pieces will live on in red car, but this car isnt getting the 7mgte/race suspension/big brakes, etc. It will be built for relaxed cruising at high speed. I miss Big-Blocks...

Vultures, LOLOLOLOLOLOL, Cough, Cough..Oh damn. Im looking at either parting it right away, if someone desires to use it as a donor, or late summer if not. The race tires are up for sale right now, Nitrous will be out tomorrow and posted for sale, and 7mgte swap package is being looked at locally.

I saw the car last week when Mike was working on it. He isn't showing you the mess of wiring from multiple alarm and stereo installs that was under the dash. He pulled many pounds of wire out.

Sorry, Dan, The Weds are never gonna be for sale. Thats them on the red car with painted centers. The silver car has a bad core support, there is a 2"x6" hole rusted thru the box section right above the bracket, and the bracket is pulling away, so I cant help you out there. Thats one of the reasons I bought this car-When they did the bodywork, they fixed/rustproofed that spot, among others.

I'm interested in the brakes. Did you have the MPV rotors w/ 300zx calipers setup? I bought a pair of machined hubs about a year ago to fit the mpv's but never got the rotors and calipers.
