My 1987 Toyota Supra Turbo

   Welcome to the Section for my 1987 Toyota Supra Turbo. I purchased this car from a gentleman in Philadelphia PA on 4/11/99. The trip there was more than worth it, besides I was quite comfortable in my friend Chets Merc SL300. We had quite a bit of fun on the way home, stock supra vs. stock sl300, supra wins;) The car was 99% stock when purchased, there was only an HKS 75mm dual tip installed when the stock one fell off. The quiet ~300 mile ride home in her really gave me time to get a feel for the car. The rattles, the handling, and of course the need for more power. Knowing why I loved the mk2 and how it felt, I knew where to start on the mk3, the suspension. Within two weeks I replaced the rims with (my older) 18s, the shocks, springs, sway bars, and lets not forget the Turbonetics MBC for a little more fun. From that time until now, I have done a few other interesting upgrades....

       I'll keep this simple for now by putting some pictures up that I have been saving for a while. I will update this page for the rest of this winter and spring until I finish the car ( not much left, but it is in storage and I won't touch her for a few more months). Please enjoy the links to pictures of the current parts in the list of products.
