Sweet Car!! — Car looks and drives great. The car needs a little up dating on its suspension and power. Dad bought it new in 1988 and gave to me for my 35th B-day :D That was 7 years ago. Still loving it!!

Screw 1jz Or 2jz, 7m All The Way :) — Performance: I'll be honest, everyone says this car is heavy and slow but, i think it handles its weight VERY well, and that's coming from an s2000. as far as 'speed' just do some bolt ons and it will be plenty fine after that Build quality: after a proper head gasket job, this car is built like a tank, i never had a car that felt more solid (and thats with a targa top! [granted i haven't driven with the top off yet]) Apperance: love it, classic 80's styling, nice long hood, pop up head lights ftw! The car is very very fun to drive

Cons

If You Can Get Your Hands On One Buy It You Won;t Regret It. — Never winter driven, so body is in very good shape. I like the way it looks without the spoilers it is still very sporty. Surprisingly nice to drive on the highway.Lumbar supports and fully ajustable seats make it very comfortable downside the back seat has minimal leg room. The car drives great corners like a go cart, and braking (four wheel disc.) A little stiff on the bumps. Still has original paint the aluminum wheels sttarting to show their age.The center console is starting to deteriate,if anyone knows a fix for this advise would be welcomed.

Pros

It's my dream car. Well close enough. My actual dream car is the MKIV model. I have the MKIII so I'm happy.

Cons

My car: the interior is beat all to hell. The car in general: nothing.

45

Huge Potential. — It's all stock, 7M-GE engine, interior, everything. The only thing aftermarket is the stereo. The bad things about the car is the all of the interior panels from the back seat to the hatch area have all been taken out and I'm in the process of trying to find replacement parts.

Solid, safe and reliable (as long as it is well maintained)

Great, Solid Car. — This car is a well built, solid car. Like every old car, it has it's down sides. One major is BHG, if the car you bought from someone has the original HG, chances are it WILL go out on you. Best thing to do is get the block decked and the head done, and put in a MHG with ARP studs. FOLLOW the torque sequence correctly. also keep an eye on the oil. This motor is VERY sensitive to oil starvation. RK is going to happen if the car is starved of oil, a good rule of thumb is to put an extra quart of oil just to be safe. Other than that, this car a great. It is hard to get one in really good condition, such as a great interior, motor and paint.

Kick ass smoothe ride

Fun As Hell In The Summer. — Mah engine lacks the torque, but the handling is pretty good. The TEMS keeps it on the ground well, and the Targa top is nice in the summer. Need to repaint it so it looks better as soon as I get the chance.

Great Car If Your Into Tuning But Could Get Pricy. — I enjoyed my 89 it was very well it was even good in the snow, i loved the seats and the targa top was great in the summer the only only problems i had with it whan i got it the previous owner did not take care of it and hoses poped almost every week (due to reglect) the i had an elictric problem where the alternator would not charge but i found the culprit was a broken wire other than that i wont mind owning another one.

Supra Blue By claudiomm95993

Toyota Supra Bpu By John

Classic, can't go wrong with this car, if you're single or not married yet. Think about it, add an intercooler, air intake, and put the boost up and you have ~450rwhp (NA version). Isn't that crazy?... Read More
