All Jap spec celicas should have the talkie voice thing. Its pretty annoying and doesn't just go when the doors open it tells you when the fuel light comes on, when the parking brake is on, when you leave your lights on and maybe more.

Haha no one believes me when i say my car can talk :roll:

Haha.... :lol: and the tape deck would spit out all tapes except for Huey Lewis and Gloria Estefan.
And Air Supply, Hall and Oates, Tina Turner, and that weirdo with the white glove.

The voice would be built into the ECU wouldnt it. Could these be imported and run in our cars...I need someone to talk to when I drive :lol:

Great post TEMEST! :lol:

Hmm...

- when you hear gurgling behind the dash and suddenly find coolant all over your floor boards.

- when you have dumped almost $10,000 into it over the last four years and it still looks almost the same, needing body work and a complete interior make-over.

- when you get owned by ricers in Hondas and swear over and over you're going get that Reg Riemer 7mgte swap.:lol:

...When the girlfriend/wife walks past it and says "hi girlfriend"

...Me too on the dash clicking

...You think that well I'm done for now but if I had...

...You scan ebay looking for that one thing that you think no one else wants.

-when your Supra breaks down and it takes four months to figure out what should be done for the least amount, and after it's towed away for a new 6m install, you actually miss looking at it parked in your driveway.

-when you refuse to come up with something else "just to drive" in the meantime, thus wasting future Supra money, and just take the bus to and from work, and don't care what people say.

I also liked the one about driving by the buildings with the huge mirror windows and gaze over thinking how good the car looks, even though it may be a rustbucket.

I can relate easily to these previous traits of a MK2 owner...

.....you buy multiples and multiples of one single, $5 part at various yards in order to find that "perfect" part. In doing so, you've spent nearly $100 and have a box full of this one part.

You start purchasing various literature items from EBay that is related to your model year specific MKII (Electrical Wiring Diagram manual, Toyota brochures, magazine ad's & article write-ups, etc, etc....).

When your dash makes clicking sounds periodically

You can't find performance parts so you make your own (lol!)

Jeff Watson recogonizes you by your voice you spend so much damn money with him

When you see another mk2 in the road you think of possible ways to fix it up

And for my own additions...

When you spend alot of time finding the ultimate matching maroon leather.

Leading the pack of 6 MKIV's, winding out 4th and one of the MKIV owners
saying, damn, that's a quick car.

When you own three cars, move, and are forced to get rid of two and only keep one... And there isnt really any question as to which two go :) Even though the other two are both newer and in better shape!

When your wife talks in front of friends/relatives about your mistress- When the PCs at work have celicasupra.com as home page & favorites- When co-workers ask what you are doing to your car at lunch, instead of where are we goin to eat- When instead of Porno, all your downloads are Supra related- When your work sysop calls and says that Supra means "Large Penis" in some arabic tongue and wonders why you spend so much time looking at them- When you have a big fight with your wife/partner about them spending 40 Bucks for an Oil change and you think nothing of blowin a 100 on a coffee can full of Maybe parts at the junkyard- When a Used Car Dealer starts a sentence with "You Supra Guys"- When you think a great morning is a cup of coffee, a great sunrise, and a dissasembled Supra that you can play with- When you tell people you "ARE NOT OBSESSED!"- Mike P

Hey All,

I do most of the above.

- I curse at the car when something breaks.
- People know me at Toyota and ask what part is needed for the Supra.
- Forgetting that that car behind is turning.
- Knowing anything breaks that it costs big bucks (thanks for the resistor Dave A. :D )
- When the Girl/Parnter asks if it is "the car or her"... ('Supra' is my answer of course) :oops:
- When everyone asks how is the 'Celica' when they mean 'Supra'
- People ask if it is fitted with a turbo.
- Girls at work asking how is the 'Celica'
- Forgetting that the Supra has more power then the SA63 Celica.
- Paranoid knowing someone will knock off the center caps andrest of car.
- Parking fair way away so there is no 'trolley rashes' or dints.
- Putting a car back on the road after being declared a right off.
- Chasing parts for months until you get the right part.
- Fuel Consumption
- Being told that I am going too slow (Digital Dash Installed)
- Spending a lot of money every week to make it factory.
- Not many wrecked MA61 in the car yards/wreckers.
- Admiring the car reflection whilst staring into another cars when driving.
- Nailing corners forgetting it is wet

Just a few Issues just to name,

Cheers.

How do you think the "other" peeps feel when you have that rusty spot on your hatch,.... And The only part of your Supra they can see is the BACK cuz they don't have enough power to pass!!
Hehe, the silent insult,... Your Porsche (or Mustang, Camaro, Vtec etc) just got smoked by a :oops: "rust bucket" :oops: !!

Jamie <-- will get around to painting and installing that rust free hatch one of these days!!

-When you call every tire shop in town and say "What do you mean I can't get a snow tire in 235/60/14???"

-You love it when it rains because you spend more time driving sideways than straight.

-EVERY Supra is still restoreable

-You need to work on you Supra for a week so you put the plates on whats left of your parts car and drive it! ... and enjoy it!

-in the local doughnut shop..."But Officer! The sign said Doughnut!!!"

-You forget you girlfriends aniversary but remember what the weather was like on the exact day you bought your first Supra.

-You just can't understand why you can't buy a five speed, rear wheel drive, 200hp, 2300lb car with suspension designed by Lotus at ANY car dealers anymore? They would sell millions!!! :whutthef:

-Your girlfriend says "If you love that car so much you can sleep with it tonight!" and slams the door in your face. You just smile and think about how comfortable your new P-type seat is going to be.

-You REALLY pi$$ off the ricy Honda you just smoked in a race because pieces of your rusted trunk lid keep falling off and hiting his new carbon fiber windshield wiper protectors! :rotfl:

Actually the Lotus Elan is coming to America next year. 1900lbs!!!! Yes I aint shittin you 1900lbs really!!!! And its Toyota powered 192hp 2ZZGE or whatever the celica GT-s Engine is with a few tweaks. That doesnt sound like much but the 0-60 is in the 4 second range and the 1/4 mile is in the high 12's I think.

haha

-When you ask your girlfriend if she wants to go shopping and she spends 2 hours dissambeling a tranny at the junkyard while you ask the owner how much cheaper it will be if you take it out yourself.

-When you mainly buy the newspaper everyday just to check the classifieds.

-You only turn up the volume on songs with good parts in them or the battery will go dead.

-When you see another supra and hunt him down and find where he lives so you can leave a note on his car to sell it.

-When you buy an 85 or 86 mainly to put the rear spiler on your 82-84.

-Your impressed that your 5mge Supra has upgrades that give you a total of 175hp.

-When your so used to people asking what kinda car you have, you tell them its a Ferrari just to impress them and so they still dont know what kinda car it is.

-Your too mature to street race cuz of your stock 5mge.

-You reverse into every parking spot.
