I have only owned 2 at once, but I know Dean Anderson currently has 4 mk2's, Josh Brower has 3, I believe Phil Dupler now has 4, and Damon Saul has more cars than a small dealership, many of which are mk2's! I think he said he has 13 vehicles all together right now.

I have three runners right now with a parts car and am in negotiations for two more - one in Illinois that looks good but the motor is shot and the other is a rustbucket in Wisconsin with a good driveline. i have owned nine, including a 91TmkIII and an 81 mkI. I like the 85/86 mkII the best.

I only have two that are driveable currently. A third is in several thousand pieces atm undergoing a resto and the fourth is a rusty parts car.

Multiple Supra Syndrom (MSS) is a rare but seldom fatal disease of the central nervous system. It is characterized by insatiable desire to possess every Supra the patient sees regardless of its condition. Actual possession of more than one Supra occurs only in the advanced stages of the disease at which point there is no known cure. If detected in the early stages, radical surgery to remove all cash and credit cards from the patients wallet and bank accounts may be temporarily effective, however, subsequent surgeries may be necessary. Surgery should only be used as a last resort as recovery is incredibly painful and side effects of treatment may be that the patient turns to a life of crime to satisfy his/her cravings. The exact cause of this troubling affliction is unknown, however, it seems to be spread through contact with contaminated lubricants. :wink:

As one of the few that has MGSS (Multi Generation Supra Syndrome) I can safely say that I have 2 at the moment. Otherwise, I've only owned 3 Supra's.

See sig below.

Car 1 (that is not listed in the sig) was a 1980 MA46 Copper Metallic 4ME 5-speed.

gawd Will! you suck, lol I'm 21 and about 5 cars behind you...but then I've never had a mk3. I'm content w/ the 4 mk2s I've had since I was 19.
I'm a cheapskate though. I just happen to find the cheapest mk2s around, heheh
My Silpra was $985 --183,000 miles when I bought it
My Redpra $675 --110,000
My Blackpra $650-- 130,000
My Blupra $100 --187,000

Total of $2,410~~ :p

I shouldn't have joked about MSS b/c I didn't know last week that my symptoms would be worsening. I picked up #5, an 84 ptype 5sp in so-so condition Saturday at a charity auction. Auction fees, tax, title and license were more than the car! It was donated because it wouldn't start and generally needed alot of work so I guess the owner felt it wasn't worth fixing. I replaced the battery and battery cable ends and started right up. Slight miss at idle and a little smoke but drives OK. Needs lots of cosmetic attention and overdue maintenance. Here's a plus tho - it has four nearly new Michelin Pilot Sports in the stock size that I doubt have 5,000 miles on them yet. Just dunno when I'm ever going to find the time.
