After having to sell my 97 jewel auto tt 2 1/2 years ago, due to increasing tuition costs of PharmD school and buying a new condo, I had been earnestly awaiting the next turtle. Well, here it is folks. Just what I wanted. The former owner was a 56 year old guy who said he hadn't driven the car over 500 miles the past 4 years. He owns cabins in Pigeon Forge and races his C5R on the weekends...must be nice.

97 jewel 6-speed with 53k miles on stock twins

Mods (Most done within last 5k miles)

HKS intake,evc,turbo timer
RMM downpipe
HKS super dragger exhaust
HRE 547's (18 inch)
Greedy 3-row
Tein SS coilovers
Greddy gauges (3 on a-pillar)
Do-Luck wing
Ab-flug hood and side skirts? (I think)
PWR radiator with Flexlite fans
UR pulleys (I am going to change out the crank for a dampened one)


See below for pic

Yea, that's the one. Considering how clean the car was, I think I got a decent deal. This wasn't a distressed sale, so the guy wouldn't budge a penny from 30k, but he had already came down from 35k (which I thought was a fair price anyway). The rims and tires alone were around 6k.

Congratulations, those HRE's are so clean. I'm hoping I won't have to sell my Supra to afford medical school :(

Hey man I'm not sure if you remember me but I used to have the white N/A in Lexington, I've talk to you a couple times. Hit me up man, I bought another as well. We need to do some driving! Are you keeping the Do-Luck wing? I think that car would look outstand with a RMM wing.

DoLuck wing.

Varis sides skirts. Keep those side skirts, hard to come by in the states.

Nice setup, any more pics?
Lose the sideskirts, there's a reason they're hard to come by in the states, no one special orders them and no one sells them because they won't sell.

Everything else is really nice.

get rid of the side skirts and spoiler....weird that a 50+ year old guy put that on....

anyway the wheels are a MUST stay...but please go back to stock side skirts and maybe a RMM spolier if you want an aftermarket? Thing would be sex.
+1 couldn't agree more

Is that you patrick? Jimmy Tudor showed me the pics of your new dawg on facebook, NICE....... I guess it was about time we came back to fold!!!!

Actually, I don't know what I'm going to do yet as far as changes. I actually like the side skirts and wing(I like the lower/wider profile of the wing). RMM is nice though. I'll post more pics tonight.

That car looks familiar from circa 2001. I wonder if the owner was from Virigina.

The stock body with do-luck wing is what is pinging the recollection.

Nice pick! I would just change the side skirts and wing to stock and then your set.
