Anyway, I've been using them (free service) for a few years to manage professional contacts, and it seems to do the job reasonably well.

http://www.linkedin.com

Partially to be funny (in retaliation to some ridiculous groups I saw being created by co-workers and ex co-workers) and partially to be serious in my own way...I created the following LinkedIn Group which was approved:

Toyota Supra Enthusiasts (1993-1998)
http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/70816/47D7CF2CB929

Anyway, if you use the LinkedIn service and qualify as a Toyota Supra Enthusiast, please feel free to join my group there. As funny as the idea might initially sound, I have made a ton of friends and professional contacts through my many years of affiliation with the Supra community, and this is just an extension of that same thought process.

Why not professionally network with other Supra owners and take advantage of LinkedIn's network, right?

Thanks for the space! :)

I just got an email through my school regarding this service. Haven't looked into it yet but I guess it's worth looking at. Can't hurt to network with people.

I've been using it for about a month now, and have found some professional contacts from a couple years ago that I haven't kept in touch with. I like it.

Sweet! Anyway, I know it may initially be perceived as a bit odd-ball, but if you stop to think about it we all relate very well to others in our Supra community. Please help me to spread the word, and let's make a big professional association out of it. :)

I'll go approve folks now, since I didn't even realize I'd need to do that. Heh.

I know FYRARMS is on.

Wouldn't it be better to not include a year range for the group? You'd be limiting it to MKIVs only and I would think that the larger the group the better.

I've been on LinkedIn for quite some time. I am a recruiter, so LinkedIn is obviously a perfect tool for me to use to find people who are good fits for job openings I have available...

I'm LinkedIn to Dusty, too. ;)

I'm on LinkedIn as well. Started when I worked in Finance for AT&T a few years ago.

Steve, thanks for the add! Now my profile is complete since I'm in the Supra group :lol:

Thanks for the feedback. You know I did think of that, and while I certainly respect all car enthusiasts, I believe that MKIV owners have a very specific bond and I've always felt that way. However, I called it a group for MKIV "enthusiasts" not owners, and if someone simply has the proper appreciation for the MKIV, they are more than welcome to join the group. I'm not going to check everyone's credentials...so at the end of the day it's just a name.

FYRARMS, join the group already! :)

see my post above...that is how I got to join, through Steve's public profile and clicked on the "Supra" group. Steve has to approve the people joining, I just was lucky enough to catch him online last night...you can also send an email as well.

Also, if anyone could provide me with two small MKIV Supra outline images (100 x 50, 60 x 30 pixels) I could use those for the group logo.

If you're having trouble seeing the group, I believe I can add you by e-mail address...there are some options like that available from my group membership control page. :)

*edit* I just approved you Dan...thank you for joining!

Stephen Schuster is online and just joined my LinkedIn network. I am going to get that OG pimp Supra boy to join our group! :)

Thanks. It's weird because unless there's another Steve Theodore from Seattle, I didn't see the group in his profile.

Anyway, I just requested to join.

Edit: Ah, you're under Stephen.

I didn't see it either in his profile. I'm on board now, though!
