Well, I finally got the console back together with the new stereo installed so we took our 83 out for a spin.

Hi Seamus,

The timing for the Ogopogo doesn't work, but the JTin show is a possibility. It also gives me some time to clean up at least one of the cars.

I removed several external pieces to go for a cleaner look. I took the hatch decals off within a month of buying my car. I planned on keeping the car a long time and figured that the large 'Supra' decal would stop the paint from fading underneath. I felt that eventually any decal would degrade and when it came off there would be an obvious difference in colour.

I'm somewhat sorry that I did that. Perhaps I should have bought the replacement decals in 1983 when they were still available. However, I do like the cleaner look.

Perhaps someday someone may reproduce the Canadian 1982/3 decals. IIRC, the large decal on the right said 'Toyota Celica Supra' and a smaller decal on the left side of the deck read GTS.

I don't think that I have any pictures of the rear of my car from 1983.

In Canada, this was the original factory decal layout.

I have the front grill 'Toyota' logo removed, although I still have that. I may reinstall this now that the topic is coming up.

Well, you weren't wrong. Though considering how little sun your car sees, they may have lasted fairly well up to this point. Clean is nice too, I had just forgotten that you didn't have any decals. Hey, its probably been well over 10 years since I saw your car last ;)

So yeah, bring it to AJC...

3" to the back!


...from the rear:

Cheapy 3" Mk3 exhaust, needed the hangers lopped off, cat welded inline, one 12mm pie-cut on the secondary pipe, and two pie-cuts on the section that goes into the muffler. Weld back on the hangers and bob's your uncle... (Way too much time spent, highly suggest just buying one that fits the mk2 instead.)

Is that the 2J car? Sounds good and deep.
Yes sir, 2jz-gte vvti, CXracing downpipe (unmodified) to their MK3 exhaust with a 3" magnaflow catalytic converter and cheap magnaflow style 3" in/out muffler... Much better than the super stealth exhaust I had on there.

Ha, shoulda got the SC300 if you wanted a Supra! Still would just be a Soarer though ;)

Very nice, I've been trying hard to resist getting one of these myself right now.

I pretty much paid for the stack of maintenance receipts from early July. Guy just had all the seals redone, timing, fuel system gone through. 148k mi and clean interior. Yeah, I'll take it.

It's almost comical how much nicer it is than what I'm used to haha.

I got him to knock $500 for a grand total of $2750.
It's a 1992, no VVTi but all forged internals and heavy duty rods, prime time for Lexus.

Coming along nicely.

Now that I have the SC400 I really appreciate the Supra even more. It's a nice looking car with a naturally good stance, but it doesn't even compare to the 82.

Hope that's real TBH, I've been looking toward hydrogen cars for a long time. Hydrolosis is an easy process that effectively "makes" hydrogen on demand.
