I Love It!! — I absolutely love the inline six design... Burning out is fun and reaching 100mph is quick and easy. No matter where you go this car turns heads. When the car starts up and the engine revs, I feel totally relaxed.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Power, handling, shifting, driving this car is effortless.

Cons: The fact that part of the intake manifold had to be removed to do some work on the top of the car.

86 Supra Turbo — Lipp 60-1 turbo, Spearco intercooler, Lipp IC piping, 550 injectors, SAFC2, Zeitronix Wideband 02 sensor, ACT performance clutch, Tanabe 3" Exhaust and downpipe, blueprinted block. Car is amazing fun to drive but needs better braking system. Cost of this beast is a little bit expensive but worth every penny.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fast RWD

Cons: ABS sucks

Amazing!!!!!! But A Pain In The Ass Sometimes — Fun and amazing can be a pain to work on but has a lot of potential. you can mix and match parts of a mustang too. Cost can be expensive because its toyota. the car is absolutely fun to drive though i can tell you that.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun and easy to drive quick and fast even tho its heavy lots of oppurtunity for it and possibilities

Cons: head gasket brakes and rear hatch leaks

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: so fun.

Cons: busted engine

Not Worth It, Unless Everything Has Had Work — Mine fell apart, the engine is a pain that most shops won't even rebuild, but you can have fun with it. Gas is pretty good. Not a very fast car, but it can drift pretty well! At least the old ones it may be something you dump money into, so ask before you buy to see what's already been done!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its fun

Cons: pain in the ass

I Love It As A Project Car. — The 5m-ge is a solid engine, very capable 12 valve. it feels underpowered stock. but every part is rock solid. engine itself if taken care of, like any car, will last forever. toyota reliablity at its finest. of course mine was built, but i still miss how fun this true sports car was, it was a little piggly though, and had body roll with a relativily high center of gravity.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: classic, great to drive, great on gas, very reliable.

Cons: rust.

1986.5 Supra — this was my first import car that i started to restore and modify. i had big plans but a small budget. parts for this car, being a 1986.5 model, were hard to find and extremely expensive. the car had 250,000 miles and ran like a charm! it had an adjustable suspension that worked really well from inside the car. the body seemed very susceptable to rust under the trim.

Pros: run forever

Cons: expensive parts

My Ma70 Supra... —

This is my first car, a MkIII Toyota Supra. Its a MA70 7M-GE. This engine is a non turbo. Was great while it was working but i did come across a few issues. The car being the 1986 model had a few aging issues and therefore heaps of problems. So after i killed the first 7M engine i brought another MA70 that was a ride-off to replace the first one... due to not fully filling the gear box with oil i blew the gear box and clutch. I have now since then done a 1JZ-GTE engine conversion. This was stressful due to lack of mechanics willing to take on the project. But now having it fully completed i love it. Performance - The stock 1JZ is a fantastic engine. It puts power down as nice as a Supra can due to stock suspension set up. In saying that my Supra handles very well I've found. Mine still has the 7M-GE brake set, which is the same as the 1JZ-GTE... So I've had no issues braking from a high speed. Build Quality - Well i already mention the 7M's aging engine problem, enough said on that. There is an annoying squeak from the boot hatch. The doors are a very heavy part of the car and due to the shear size of the door it becomes a issue if u park on a slope it falls back onto you or hard into the ground, damaging the bottom corner. Appearance - The exterior of this car screams Japaneses power car. It has slick angles and curves to entice to eyes. With its long nose and stock wide front and rear quarter panels it just has a tough stance. The front bar with its split look, hiding the parkers and indicators and big open air intake to cool engine and optimize intercoolers effectiveness. Fog lights mounted down low and the very typicaly 80's look of pop-up head lights. Interior is a true 80's sports car look. Long dash full of gauges and switches to let you know whats going on at all times. Bucket racing seats to hold you in place while driving. They're also adjustable to hug you perfectly. Plenty of leg room for the driver and passenger, not so much if you get stuck in the back. But thats a given with all two doors coupes. Cost - Well with any sports car its not going to be cheap. They're not great on fuel, but be truthful who buys a car like this for fuel economey?? No one. Maintanence is shocking being an import spares are hard to come by. You need to find a speacilist in the type of car or maker. Due to the age it also makes it hard. Fun Factor - Well this would be the most important part really. Oh MY Goodness!! It is most deffinetly a fun car to drive. Takes off hard, truns heads of other motorists. Gives a real addreninal rush as you push into boost. Throwing you into your seat as you and the car race up to any speed limit. Flying up into the corner then braking hard and droping down to the right gear to boost hard out of the apexi of the corner. A car like this encourages other sports cars to want to race you down the main street. Would i recommend this to a friend? Yes! I would but only if they are willing to fix it and put time and money as owning a sports car is a money hunrgy thing as i've learnt the hard way. But to me the money i've spent was worth it. Overall i would give it 10/10... But in a proper rating. I would say 8.5/10.

Pros: Up-grading to the 1JZ-GTE and people commenting on such a nice car.

Cons: Fuel consumption and the Age

86 Supra — pretty, sturdy, quite fast, good reputation, a bit expensive on the maintenance part, it has good acceleration, and breaking...handling is pretty good... not awful on gas, it could be much worse, very fun to drive, especially when drifting and power sliding..and it has plenty of room for all kinds of things

Pros: it has a 7mge engine inside..rawr

Cons: it needs more work
