** I really don't know where this belongs... but if it's in the wrong place, please move for me...**

So I'm leaving to College Station/Bryan for College.. and I have not decided where to live at yet... (Apartments / Townhouse)...

I really want to bring the Supra with me... as it's my only car, but I already told myself... If the place I'm living at doesn't have a good parking lot / garage I won't bring the supra...

Any of you guys got experiences with this problem?

How safe are "covered parking lots?"

Is it worth it to spend the extra cash for a townhouse with a seperate garage?

Or should I just give away my Supra to a fellow Supraforums member? haha jk...

honestly man if i were you i would not take the supra to college. I just entered college this year as a freshman. I park in a structure on the very top floor where no one else parks and in covered lot. I was going to buy a nice car (lexis is300 or possibly a supra), but i am glad i didnt. I bought a cheap 97 camry. so far this year:

1 mirror gone
1 Hole in the bumper
2 Hubcaps broken off by a hammer
1 Dent in the driver side rear bumper on the corner
1 huge dent in behind the the rear passenger wheel
Dents on the hood

Pissed me off. This car was so nice and now it looks like a piece of shit.

so if i were you.. leave the supra at home and go to school or buy a beater and take it with you

Shit! If thats the Supra.. some ass would have to be beaten...

But good advice man, if I can't find a place with a garage... consider the Supra at home.

Since we live in the same town you can park it at my house and I'll let you use my daily driver. :1poke:

A garage at college is an absolute MUST!

Getting an apartment/condo/townhome with a garage is so worth the money.

Depending on where you go to school, there is always a) drunk idiots b) jealous peeps c) shitty weather

GET A GARAGE :)

My supra got keyed twice in my first 2 semesters of college. I then invested in getting a beater so I can leave my supra at home with the parents.

You should think about getting a really good alarm. That will deter a lot of people from doing something stupid :)

That's what I'm gonna do with the Evo the second I get it ;)

Dont take it there.

Ditto, get a $1000 beater for those low lifes who will trash your car while at college.

Thankfully, I only took mine rarely since I had private parking due to landlord house.

Well I never really considered problems at my school as far as parking and never had any either. But I guess if you are going to a major university, then it may be something to consider. No one ever tried to screw with my car, and the only thing I really had to worry about was rain, but I washed my car alot so not really a problem. Just my 2cents.

I'm guessing your going to A&M university if so you should be alright most people that go to A&M either don't know what a supra is and if they do won't be messing with it. but I would get a garage. the storms can get bad down there

Buy a cheap shitty beater that you could care less about what happens to and when college is over leave it at the side of the road with the old dorm refrigerators and furniture that is chunked out when people graduate.

If you try to be smart about it you should be ok. I had a modded red TT and luckily also lived in the very back of a large townhouse/appt complex. No issues.

Leaving the car at a mall or something that though...probably not such a great idea.
