you know you own a mk2 supra when...

your car is down for repair half of the time, and the other half for mods :twisted:

when people ask what are you doing to it now :?

when people ask what kind of car is that :?


Keep them coming

When the only way most people can tell what kind of car you have is the large "S U P R A" on the hatch.

When the body completely rusts off, but the engine is still running strong.

You get angry when people call your car a "Celica" without adding "Supra".

The pop up headlights fascinate people (who have obviously never seen a MK II, MK III, '82-'02 Firebird, Fiero, '84-'89 300ZX, Probe, etc.).

You look "Supra" up in the dictionary and find it means 'above' and figure that's just par for the course.

Cruising with the moonroof open and the windows down, with Starship's classic "We Built This City" blaring from the stereo is the perfect Sunday drive. (OK, this one may be just me...)

The highlight of "The Fast And The Furious" is seeing the MK II. The downside is that you never get to see it race...

when getting that damn drivers side front flare is more important than getting the engine running.

You get all teary eyed as they load it onto a flatbed 'cause the m*therf*cker won't start...AGAIN!!!

You tell people there's "only" 198,000 miles on her....

The stereo only seems to get good reception when there's an early 80's song playing (a la "Christine")

You disdainfully look at the MKIII in the repair shop's lot, until you see the 7M-GE and wonder what it would look like in your car.

You let the car sit for 8 weeks and then go to start it, and not only does it start, but it smooths right out in the first 20 seconds.

Everytime you work on your car, you think "Man this car was ahead of it's time!".

You'd rather work on your old MkII than drive your new vette'.

Even though at the autocross, your car had the power/weight ratio equivalence of a 450# ballet dancer when compared to the group of miatas, vettes, wrxs, mustangGTs, preludes, and integras, it still manages to finish right smack dab in the middle of them all, all the while looking like the sexiest 450# dancer ever to wear a tu-tu and stand on its toes.

...you give it away to your brother-in-law, but later consider selling your MkIV and getting another MkII to pimp out.

...or maybe that's just me. :)

You look at the Mk III in the shop and think "that things weighs how much?"

You've had to explain more then 5 times that in 1985, the Supra didn't have a turbo (much less a TT) option.

When you spend the $200 on parts for the Supra rather than the birthday present for your girlfriend and she just sighs and tells you it's ok.

When you know if she ever finds out how much you really spent she's going to kill you!

When you've got your girlfriend(or significant other) saying "The Supra!" every time she sees it or you pull up in it.

When other members of your family and friends start to recognize all 4 different models of Supra.

When the said family and friends call to tell you every time they see one.
Especially when they see that one broken down MkII sitting in the median, that reminds them of all the times they had to come get you from the side of the road all those times when your Freakin MKII died on you.(thanks dad!)
When your friends say all suprised, you went all the to where? and got back ok? without the car breaking? And you have to remind them all the work you've done on it lately.
You're reading cs.com at like 2am and run out in the rain to check you'r vin# and model code becuse you discovered something new!

when people ask what year your supra is, you list the years of at least 2, but sometimes as many as 4 or 5 different cars.

when after you've given the above answer, you quickly inform the person of how many you've owned in all over the years.

when you consider buying newer, more technologically advanced cars, just so you can steal their parts and transplat them into your good ol mk2 :D

when you pull away your diff goes clunk :x

when you take 90degree corners you have to fight the urge to hang the ass end out.... because your significant other is in the passenger seat :lol:

When people ask you what kind of car you have (when it is not with you) you say 'Supra' and they get all excited asking what year (assuming its mk4)...then you have to let them down stating its a early 80s ruster. LOL

When people ask you how much the wheels cost, and you tell them, knowing its probably more than the book value of the car.

Yeah... that's pretty specific to you, brother. :)
The "my wheels are more expensive than many cars" thing is typically a MkIV-punkass characteristic. :roll: :wink: :twisted:

When, after sitting more than 5 seconds, you can smoke ANYTHING at a stop light.....All the while cursing the valve-stem seals to the depths of Hades :bad-word:

When you get an inordinate amount of fun out of driving by buildings with huge reflective windows.

When you HAVE to sit at a table where you can see your car.

When you think of the speed limit as how fast you can go around the next corner. All the while trying hard not to think about the 60 series rubber that's flexing.....a lot :(

When, if your girlfriend is wearing a white sweater and gets within 2 feet of the center console is covered in oragne foam. Applies to all colors...especially black :mad:

When you always REALLY A LOT VERY MUCH consider EVERY MKII you see for sale...(even though you can't afford those damn headstuds and gaskets and....etc...etc...)

When you drive from Oregon to Canada(or NM to CA to OR to WA) to pick up a clean interior. But I know it was worth it you two!

When you make the guy at work with the '02 Civic Si consider getting something else, like an Evo 8, after you handed his ass to him at lunchtime.

When you park in the boondocks so people aren't adding to the already extensive collection of door dings and to enjoy looking at the Soop while you walk back.

When the best feeling in the world is coming back from a 2 week(no driving) trip and getting into your MKII and driving home on the freeway! 8)

When you can relate almost anything someone says to something about a Supra.

When you drive past houses and garages, and out of the corner of your eye, you keep thinking you see a mkii and get all excited, only to be let down by something else.

Poeple think they are about to get in an accident when you DO see one, or that you are possibly having some sort of attack :)

You watch the backgrounds of street scenes in movies and tv looking for a hidden MKII. (Like wheres waldo, only wheres Supra)

People ask you if you have the 2jz, (no shit), then you proceed to explain the difference in 5m/6m/7m, when toyota first intruduced the j block, differences in model years from 79 up, and all the while you are ranting and raving, they have no idea what the hell you are talking about, but you smile anyway :)

Someone can ALWAYS make you drop what you are doing and turn around by saying "There goes a supra"
