Alright so ill start from the very first when i bought the car which was in 2006.

Since i was a freshman in high school i have wanted a MK4 supra so i dedicated my self to save up for this mofo. So in September of 2006, after i graduated i took a trip out to Road Island and bought me a *1993 RR Auto Tan interior high mileage stock body Toyota Supra TT* with very little BPU mods.

Cash :)

Supra purchased.

Andrews parents where nice enough to let me use their plates to get the car back to new york and just mail in the plates when the car got to its new home safe and sound.

No disrespect to the last owner but WTF was it with the two gray stripes? So on the following summer of 2007 i got the car resprayed all red except for the hood. Since i was painting the car i went ahead and got me an Ebay FMIC with XS power IC piping, RMM carbon fiber center TRD replica spoiler and a wing west front lip from MVP Motor sports, Fluiedyn radiator APP fan shroud with fans.

When when all the body work was done i just decided to patch up the stock antenna, rear wiper, rear wiper squirters. For the car to end up looking like this:

So for the summer of 2007 I drove the car around went to a bunch of Honda meets to show the car off, and it sure did get a lot of attention from that crowd. I got the car tuned sometime in October-November.

Graph looked like this:

This is where is gets interesting. Around the same time of me getting my car tuned it was time for an oil change. I was in the process of doing so when my friend, who went to Lincoln tech here in NYC, a good automotive car school goes to take the oil filter off. I usually don't let none of my friends touch my car, but hey since he graduated the school with pretty good standing i said sure why not, the moron ended up leaving the old oil filter rubber ring attached on the engine. So you know what happens next, Mr KNOCK KNOCK comes out to play, the son of a b**** has the nerves to says he does not remember touching my car and wont take the blame (no need for me to say what happens when he said that shyt to me) in some part is it my fault for not double checking.
