well, it the only reason the people you know with trucks aren't willing to go tow it for you is because they don't want to strap it to their frame, then go rent a u-haul thing that is specifically for towing cars (sprry, i forgot what the name of that thing is), strap that up to the truck, and hook it up to the supra...my brother and i have done that many times before...

That's retarded dude.................... :wtflol:
What happens if/when you have to slam on the brakes? This is a disaster in the making. Just be patient and wait until you can find someone with a hitch and then go rent a car dolly, do it right or not at all. You will be putting yourself, your buddy and everyone else on the highway in danger.

Highway patrol would have a blast seeing you towing a supra without a tow bar or trailer.

my brother and his friend drove 800 miles from roswell NM, to Calorado springs up and down hills in a 91 eclipse gs to go pick my brothers car he was buying up (91 talon tsi) and they started coming back and the clutch went out 80 miles from where he bought it. they bought a tow rope and towed that shit the rest of the way up and down hills. my brother in his car steering and the other one driving. they drove about 9 hours going 80+mph on the highway. never got pulled over or anything. nothing goy fucked up either. i think it might be alright if the car is turned on but not started in nuetral.
