Well the pics are self explanitory.... i went out for a drive got cruising at about 50mph and wooosh i look up and my targa is doing backflips 30 feet in the air..... it was actually very resembling to the F&F Scene. Dunno what was wrong, i guess it just wasn't bolted down all the way, i will check on it later when i calm down and stop cursing the car. and i am also looking for a new targa so if you have one that is pearl white or even plain white send me a pm.

Needless to say there was not a single scratch in it before :(

Sorry to hear. Probably was just loose. I've got a primered targa with tan interior lining. It's off an '88 parts car i had that was completely prepped for paint. You can take the lining off your targa and put it on this one. Just take it to get it painted to match your car. Send me a PM if you want.

wow that targa got pwnd soo hard...

my top flew off one time...not nearly as bad as that though I could at least bolt it down lol...

have someone stomp ontop of it..im sure you will be able to bolt it down somehow :bigthumb:

replacing a targa top is a pain in the ass...unless u can find the same exacly exterior and interior color targa its gonna be a pain in the arse :hs:

I had to get a new targa top and rip out the non-matching interior, then paint the targa top and now put my grey interior crap back in it....not fun

That sucks man...Supras seem to be losing body parts left and right!

Not too long ago, there was an MkIV who's hood slammed itself against the windsheild (same thing happened to me; the guy that was fixing it just left :hs: ), and now this :hs:

At least it didn't fly into a motorist behind you. Then you would have to deal with the headaches of that in addition to finding a new top.

Yes you should! Now I have to shell out (okay $275) for a new hood and replaced windsheild! My targa got just a little bump or two from it, but thats probably because the hood is the only thing from Toyota on our cars that isnt omnipotent.

Such a beauitful car too, need to lay off the weed dude!:stickpoke:

Tops are always on EBAY and the FS section here for about $100.00

The way I always keep track of mine is buy the plastic plugs that go over the bolt holes when the top is removed. Before you put it on you have to pull the plugs off, lay the bag on the dash with the plugs in it. Next time you're tempted to drive away you'll see the bag on the dash. You should be able to still get the plugs, bag and ratchet from Champion Toyota.

You're mad at the car because YOU (or so many of you can understand "U") didn't put the targa on properly?

What am I missing here?

thats pretty funny, same thing happened to me about a week ago, woosh it was gone. And i was left wondering why it go so bright so quick, figured that out pretty quick. My local body shop was able to refit it with no problem. Luckly the paint side never hit the pavement, so i had no paint damage, it was jus left a lil tweaked. GL mam sry 2 hear it
