| ||Model of the car:||Supra Turbo|
| ||General comments:||Ok, people make Supras out to be beasts that have lots of stuff wrong. You know why? BECAUSE THEY DRIVE THEM WRONG! They drive Supras like they're commute cars. They're not. They're performance coups not used for driveing long distances, day after day. Especially the turbos. Did you know turbos need to be warmed up and cooled down or else you're going to screw them up? No? well now you do. Now that that's outta the way, here's someone that actually knows about Supras. They are great cars and if you play your cards right can get 600+ hp. The only problem is you can only find them these days with 100,000's of miles because dumb people DRIVE THEM TO DEATH. I got mine with 170,000 miles, only 13,000 on a new motor though. I had to replace the turbo, re-nitrate the crankshaft, rods, and pistons, and turbo piping. But hey, that's what you get when you buy your car from someone that doesn't know all the intricacies of the performance sedan. So to sum it up: If you're a middle aged man looking for a "cool" sports car to drive around and show your friends, don't get a Supra. If you have a good knowledge of cars and an appreciation for high performance vehicles, by all means get it|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Can't find them below 100,000 miles and when you do, they're usually beat to crap.|
| ||Previous car:||RX-7, 300ZX, 3000GT. Supra beats all (except for the RX-7 on some occasions)|
