Totally Agree! My Mk2 has definitely made me a believer in Toyota quality. As for your Mk2 hobby, I am right there with you! My Mk2 was also my first car (acquired August 1989). I love the Vette, but I just drive it, I don't play with it. I have no fear of dismantleing the Supra, but the Vette makes me nervous! I am sure I will get over that in time, but for now, I just polish it and drive it. I am envious of your Mk4 though. Man those things are sweet! I would work on getting one of those next, but I foresee Mk4 prices falling slowly, and the 70-72 Vettes are climbing steadily, so I need to work on that project next!NiGHTS said:
- Square...Ya, I have 2 Supra's...an '83 MK2 and a '95 MK4 TT.
Love them both, but most of the time I'm trying to get the MK2 to run as perfect as possible...it's become sort of like a hobby fixing it up ever since I got the MK4...The MK2 was my very first car and I've kept it even though I got a MK4 years later...I guess I have too much love for it!
Oh, I didn't realize you meant 230 miles...far out! That's almost double mine! Soooo much...it's good to see she's still going strong! That gives me hope for my car...lol...I hope she is alive and kicking after 400,000km's...well done!
Such a reliable car though...Toyota Rock!
As for the mileage, yeah, she has held up well. I will need to do an engine swap or rebuild at some point, but that is down the road a bit. I think you can expect your 5M to go at least 320,000 km, and with a car loving owner (such as yourself) 400K shouldn't be a big deal. I will try to get some video of my Supra starting and idleing once I get off my butt and get a digital camera!
