OK I'm new here & have no idea where to ask this question :?:

but here goes..

Where can I get a Bonnet Badge for a Celica Supra (reg 85) ((MA61)).

Sadly the one on my b/f 's car was stolen yesterday and I'm finding it impossible to find a replacement.

He is very upset, to say the least and I was hoping to get the replacement in time for his birthday

Hello Bethy,

Welcome to CelicaSupra.com Forums! Having owned a Triumph TR-7, I'm familiar with the term "bonnet" ("hood" to us Americans over here).

Do you remember what the badge looked like?

Was it this?


Or did it look like this?


You should be able to get one from your local Toyota dealer still, although they may have to order it for you. If not, possibly a wrecking yard might have a Mk2 Supra on hand. If all else fails, one of us could probably send you one from the US.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance.

**By the way, what is a British Boffin? I know what it sounds like, but being polite...I'm not gonna say it. ;)

You're so smart. You must have looked that up on the InterWeb.

In other words..as long as your Toyota is a SUPRA and not a Celica XX you shoud not have a problem finding badges. I'll send you one, some.. whatever you need free.. It'll be snail mail though. As we say in PORSCHE No old Supra's...Just new owners.

TEMPEST

let me know

:D Wow you guys are Fab... the badge was like the second one, with the swan...

If any one has one I would be so grateful... maybe even on the verge of sexual favours style thankful..... Well maybe not, but I think you understand how happy I would be.

And no I'm not a woman of science but I am a woman of brains and humour, a rare mix I'm told.... and I have great taste in cars :wink: don't ya think??

Thanks guys..

Well I think the ChestwigChariot guy might object..... it's his car that had the badge stolen.

But thanks

Hi. I was once an Englander also. I was born there but moved to Canada when I was 7...anyway thought you might like to know that its not a swan. Its a Greek Dragon :) The word Supra comes from the Old Greek and means: Over, Above, Beyond.

IIRC

Cheers :)

Nah, it's the famous Supra Duck! Sorry, old joke. When I next go to the local wreckers (I've been threatening to for yonks, but just haven't had time), I'm going to pick up a bunch of XX B-Pillars for some of the US list members who have put in requests. Last time I was there ('bout 6 months ago) they only had Supra Duck bonett badges, but if they have any XX big badges, I'll grab them too.

Also, I saw a pic of a TA-22 in an old mad recently and it had a pretty chrome grille badge with the Supra Duckon top of the letters GT. Anyone know where these came from or if they are rare?

cheers,

Justin

Now a supra duck sounds more like it, but then that comment is from an Aussie.... man after my own heart.. in the homelands.

Be good guys and keep saving those badges

But if we catch the shit who stole ours... you'll know who it is cuz his legs will be down his throat

My local Yota wrecker, who was a bit of an arsehole to begin with, has recently gone into overdrive - no toucking the merchandise, etc. All beause some low-life chiselled a Supra Duck off one of the bonetts in the yard. Bastards!

I live in fear of someone nicking my 2.5Tiwn Turbo grille badge - wish I could weld the sucker into place!

Good luck catching the wankers,

Justin

Unfortunately we are still unable to locate afore mentioned SHIT. Still have badgeless Supra...

*whispers* but I'm still having fun pissing off silly gary boys in there Ford escort RS's.
They see me in what looks like an old banger and cruise past at 60-70 mph.. only for me to PISS past them at 102mph seconds later...

Why do men assume women can't drive.. I am as yet to have an accident and regularly exceed the speed limits.. Hell what were speed limits made for but to Speed through??????

I would like to point out that I do not approve of speeding.

Particularly in my car

Particularly at 102 on a back road that's bumpier than the acne ridden face of the little plonker that thought it would be a good idea to nick my badge :mad:

Personally I stick rigidly to 30 and 40 limits - make my own judgement on 50's and when it comes to a GLF sign - well - GLF! :twisted:
