Very pretty car indeed! Have fun with it!
I just re-read it and you are right. The car was in better condition than described. That hardly ever happens! Wink

Correct, that's what really troubles me now. It really would be a waste of a good car to turn a stock Supra into a track car.

Correct, it's way better than I was hoping for. I still owe the guy a box of beers or something, he helped me out a lot to organize the transport as well.

I hope they accept the car as-is at the local inspection so that I can drive it a couple years just the way it is. It's super comfortable and quick enough. In essence it's a sporty Lexus. Dodgy

In the meantime I have to save up money anyways now, race/track cars are expensive... Yummie!

That's exact opposite of what they say about the SC300 / Soarer: it's a Supra in Gran Tourer guise! Big Grin
