    unexpected supra purchase...

    a friend called me this morning and was in need of some money asap. so he offered me his white 88 turbo for a good deal. ive always wanted one in white, except for the red/maroon interior (which will be taken out in the future). i may actually my just strip the interior, sell the parts then paint it and leave it.

    needs a little work, but don't they all. hoping to get some a little help with this new project. have not been on sm for ages, so ii posted up about my new project there cause ii know some of you guys are over there too.

    this is my 3rd supra now....currently have a 95 hardtop project too.

    will post pics later

    Guess it's always good to help a friend. In doing that right now ended up with mint tail lights in return. How much was it?

    When you decide to get rid of your maroon interior, if its in good shape, I might be interested in buying some of the interior part off of you ;-)

    Be careful - MKIII projects have a habit of multiplying!

    Sounds like a fun and serendipitous score! Where's the freaking pics?!?!
