Hey everyone! Just thought I would post a bit about my car.

I know my car isn't the best an it doesn't look the greatest, but when I got the poor thing it was in pretty bad shape. I've replaced the belts, starter, and timing belt (THANK GOD for non-interference engines!!!). It's still got the original 5mge in it. It needs a new transmission soon (manual). I have a pretty bad exhaust leak on the manifold. It's leaking oil kinda bad but I'm not quite sure from where. I replaced the original wheels with almost brand new ones that i got off matt (lime green MK2 supra....can't remember his username on the forum....sorry!). I've been fixing things as they go wrong or need replaced. There will always be the little things here and there wrong with it beacuse it seems like no matter what I fix, it insists on breaking something else again. I've done what I can to fix it up and I think I've done pretty good so far. I can't really do body work yet because of money issues, plus the other stuff listed above are in more need of attention than the body work. But anyway, I just thought I would give you some background before I posted the pics, so here they are (tell me what you think please!):

I think I wanna know who's driving in the 2nd pic...

Got any interior shots? I mean it actually doesn't look too bad from the outside. Trim piece missing here and there, but can't complain really.

Welcome to C-tech!

thats a nice SDR 85 MKii supra. So you mean you still have the original 5MGE engine, and not the 5MGTE ;)

Keep up the work on the car and you'll enjoy it!

I have a strange fetish with those cars...

That CAR NEEDS BUFFED! I can tell looking at it its pretty much oxidized... if you buff it the paint will come out a million times better.

I actually hardly have any clear coat left on the poor thing...When I buff it out it only lasts about a day then it's off an looks like I haven't even touched it...I know what you mean though

just a daily for now...one of my buddies says he wants to paint it but idk if that will ever happen...I have no money to be able to do anything else with it other than to fix up the broken parts for now but I'm happy with that...at least I'm bettering the car somehow right?
