This. It should be a capital crime for a guy to know as much as Mike, own and operate a business that services Supras, contributes as much as Mike, be an all-around good guy and NOT OWN A SUPRA. Congrats on the 10-years, Mike. Get yourself another Supra so you don't feel naked when you go out in public!

Ken.

I can't believe it, I've been on Supraforums for a full decade as of today. It didn't even occur to me til Stu Hagen made a recent post a couple of months ago about the early forum members. (at which time I also discovered I was member number #23) Over the years I've met a lot of people through the community and made a lot of great friends (and unfortunately ran into some questionable ones as well). Most including myself don't even own Supras anymore ; I remember making jokes about "Supra-less Supra meets" years ago.

Little bit of Supraforums history for those that have not been around quite as long. Supraforums was actually started in the late 90's, but had a lot of database issues the first few years. Everyone had to reregister, I think I did so at least 5 times. Things finally stabilized 10 years ago.

Over the years I've owned 4 Supras. My first supra which I bought back in 2000 was a 93 auto which I bought bone stock and fellow forum member and good friend Kal and I drove from it from Pittsburgh to LA in 36 hours flat! (with a minor run in with law enforcement who was not so amused) That car went [email protected] at full weight with BPU (no +'s), my second was the infamous anthracite TT hardtop formerly owned by Ron Tsan and Steve Theodore. My 3rd was a 94 white 6 speed, and my last was a 94 auto.

Last year I finally decided to take a chance and open a shop and ended up competing with Curtis Chen's Supra where we made history winning the Castrol Syntec Top-Car Challenge (formerly the Sport Compact Car Ultimate Street Car Shootout)

Currently I've moved onto domestics and presently own my 2nd Corvette, but my fondest car memories were definitely in Supras.

Thank you to the Supra community for the knowledge, support, good times, fond memories and most importantly good friends. I am however iffy about how it (literally) turned me into a full time mechanic :p

I'll be 10 on August 20th this year. By that time F&F had been out & bidding wars for these cars were quite common. Off Topic was Anything Goes & the mkiii section was as wild as todays OT. No idea what member number I am and given thr ftenzy after the movie, it can't be low Nick & V8THIS'.

Would have never realized this year will be my tenth year on SF if I didn't cross this thread.

Its been a good 10 years even though I do not own a supra anymore, I am currently in the market for one again.

I bought my Supra finally, but I place the blame squarely on Kal and Mike. Thanks, jerks! :D

I bought my Supra in 1998, but I joined MKIV.com forums because I didn't hear about this one until 2005, when I joined up here.
