I signed her off and watched her roll away. The sight of witnessing your very own blood, sweat, money and tears over the years just go away in that moment is something different. It happens so fast. The feeling of watching your very own car being driven away in front makes you feel ackward and flimsy to your very bones. He turned out and smashed her through the gears so I could hear her prowl one more time and she disappeared into the distant traffic and night lights. And that was it.

I cried a manly tear. Our legacy is done. But it's great to know she is in good hands, and maybe an even better home for the most part. I will miss her. Life goes on. I don't know when, but I'll be back guys. For very good reasons, I feel that I didn't just lose her. But you guys, along with me, lost her as well. Because through all the years of bolts, nuts and screws, you guys were right there to guide and lend a help when I needed it. Thanks for everything guys. You all truly made her who she is. Much love, my Supra brothers.....

Why did u sell her
My older brother has been in a big slump ever since he got laid off from his last job. Times are tough. The economy is fucked. He just had another kid and is struggling badly. I'm helping him out because he's done a lot for me. Also, I will be going to school to finish and get my degree. Let's be honest. Having a highly modded car, furthermore, being a Supra, is not the most sufficient way of getting through school when your income is still minimal, you have a lot of bills and dependencies.

Once u go Supra...U never go Back!
no joke, i had an awesome 6speed, built diff, turbo miata. i absolutely loved that car. but eventually i went back to a supra. and the only thing i'd get rid of this car for is another supra... or maybe a pickup... but that's just so i can swap in a 2jz =)

sai: usually when you get rid of a car for these reasons karma will reward you with a better one. so, good job for looking out for your brother... do what you got to do, because you know he did the same for you. good way to own up man. good luck with everything!

Its just a car.........an immaterial item........Metal, rubber and plastic.

What I've learned from the dozens of vehicles I've owned, Don't get attached and your next car is awaiting to be purchased.

Crying over a car is stupid.

Now crying for your new niece/nephew...That is perfectly acceptable.

^^Bite your tongue mister. ;-)

Sai... I've followed your car for awhile and used as inspiration to get mine where it's at today. Thanks for all your help and sharing of info! Can't ever imagine myself turning the keys over to anyone, after all of the blood, sweat, tears, POed Ex-GFs, and other sacrifices.

Good luck to you (fist-bump)!

I've had mine for nearly 10 years now and have made countless friends with it and have had more memorable experiences than I can count. Seeing this car go away would definitely be an emotional moment due to all of those associations, let alone how the car always seems to put a smile on my face. You may have a different prerogative, but that's all you, I love my car for all the experiences I've had with it.

Sai, sorry to hear you sold you car. But.. I have to give you props.. 20 years old and still will do anything for family. I think you will still be around the forums. Thats one thing thats also hard to give up. Once you have had a Supra... and sold a Supra... it only a matter of time before you have another Supra.
