Well... after Robert was nice enough to give me a ride in his car @ Atl Motor Speedway, I have kind of been a fan of the gtr...

I hated supras for a long time, but then ended up putting a lot of time and effort into one. So that is prob what will happen with a gtr next. This is my supra, I will keep it around as the gtr's skinnier bitchier cousin.

Former 94,97 supra family. The GTR is way better overall car. Once modded, you can do well from dig and roll. That is one clean supra.

Glad to see some former and current MKIV owners vouching for the gtr... means I'd prob like it. Although, I'm helping my friend work on his gtr tomorrow, which might make me reconsider... the engine bay looks like it doesn't want to be messed with.

and how badass is that supra BTW

jeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzuuuuuuuuuuuuussss all that work/mods went into it? how long did it take you to put it together and most importantly... if u don't mind - how much did it end up costing? I venture to guess somewhere in at least 1/2 of GT-R price territory (not counting the labor, which I presume you did yourself?)

I owned it for two years, it was in pieces so I couldn't drive it, and I planned to do really mild stuff like just a GT4202r (which now decorates my living room), then I started actually working on it and my overkill tendencies took over. I worked on it almost every day for 6 months and got it running in July of this year. I did all the labor except for the welding, bottom end of the motor and my buddies had to redo some of my electrical (bc I suck at wiring). I honestly don't know how much money I have into it... a lot more than I planned. I've seen similar quicksilver supras with Full Race parts and similar big boy fuel set ups, etc. listed for insane prices but idk if they actually ever sold.

If I sold the supra and my f-bods and Land Cruiser I could prob pay cash for a GT-R... tempting...

And you do realize that by "helping" I meant I will provide my garage and tools and sit there drinking while you do it...

Very nice Supra, you brought that thing back from the dead. I love the plate too, don't know if that would even pass the screening where I live haha. My first car was a 7MGTE 1990 Supra, loved Supras and GT-R's since I was a fast and furious kid. I feel the torch is being passed on from the Supra to the GT-R in the tuning world, while the 2JZ will always be a legend, the VR38 has already nearly caught up in terms of horsepower tuneability..Couple that with modern day amenities and one of the best transmissions in the world and there's no way you would regret buying a GT-R.

They put me on the spot and made me spell out exactly what it meant before they would approve it. I had to pretend to call my boyfriend so that I had time to think, told her he said it stood for 'only made for great horsepower' then I gave her a confused look and said 'I don't get what it means, it's just what he told me to put, I guess it has something to do with cars?' Ha.

Depend what are important to you. For me, it was straight line speed from dig and road course. The ability of GTR to put the power down is incredible. It is just way better all around car. The car is 16 years newer and technology advance a lot in that time.

What made you jump ship?
I was on the fence until i actually saw one in person and such presence it had.

Mostly the 'newness' of it, as even a 98 low miled, one owner Supra is still so old school compared to the GTR. The AWD factor, can be daily driven even in snow and what really sold me was watching the Alpha 12 GTR video(its on youtube), the end of it where the passengers responses had me smiling from ear to ear. Not to mention I checked insurance and it is really affordable. Oh and lastly I love the technology of paddle shifting, no clutch pedal and the lazy man no shifting option. ;)
