Thanks man, yeah they are 15inch Soarer wheels. As for the vents i don't really know i brought the car off a guy who had used it as a track car so i guess he put them on to help with cooling.

Very nice car. Were you able to pick it up looking that great or have you done a lot of restoration work? Really nice.

Does the nose bade say 2.8GTR? Jonathan sent us a Kiwi badge that was 2.8GT. I've never seen a 2.8GTR badge before. Interesting, bet Mr. Eng doesn't have one of these...... :oops:

I brought it like that all i've done to it is a service, the last owner must have really loved it because its been looked after real well and has pretty low kms for its age (163thousand with a full engine rebuild at 80thousand i assume thats when it became a track car) the red paint is only a few years old, interior is real mint too. The only thing wrong is a little bit of rust is just starting to come throught on the hatch. Hehe it also came with some magazines from the early 80s with articles on the mkII in them

Yeah the Badge says 2.8GTR

Wheel caps?? you mean centre caps?? its already got centres caps with pictures of little loins on them(soarer logo)

The vents are made Erebuni. Go to the clearance section of their website and look under toyota --> supra. $150 :roll: I just saw them last week when I was browsing.

Just curious. Your pictures are great but no landmarks. Seems to me like the setting where you took the pictures looks like much of New Zealand. If memory serves me correctly, there is a casino at Christchurch that was extremely lucky for me. :lol:

Ok...so this begs a question...

Most of us know what a 2.8GT is, pertaining to the Supra but....what on earth is/was a 2.8GTR?

Anyone want to take a stab at that? Does the badge really belong on that '83 Supra or is this another version of the car that we never got over here in the USA?

Good question.....I cant for the life of me track down a 2.8GTR model in NZ. mind you a lot of our cars are imported s/h from japan......but i think the badge is of a another toyota..........We only got the 2.8P and L models over here.....even if there were a lot of variants of them imported.

hahahaha ROTFLMAO

Chris,

I knew that would get to you. Do I hear "group buy"? I wouldn't mind having one as well. Should be pretty easy to add an R to the program for aluminum badge upgrades.... :lol:

Ok so what am I doing wrong? When I go to their website, I don't see anything about a clearance section. I tried for an hour to find something that would lead me to anything about those vents. I'd really like to pick up at least one and maybe two.
