Stolen right after I went to work. Pic:


Purchased from CkAnderson's sister September last year. Charcoal Grey, Racing Hart 5 spoke rims. H&R drop, no front lip spoiler, large stainless exhaust tip. Flat black stock urethane front bumper cover. Billet TEMS buttons by David Swearington.

I park my car just around the corner for the benefit of shade in the afternoon. I use another vehicle for work usually.

Timeline: I got up for work @ 7am this morning. I got ready, had breakfast at a restaurant, came home and took care of some online stuff. Left my house @ 830 for work, car was still there. I did a small job and came home at 10. Went to my car for my shades cuz its getting bright again out here in Cali. NO CAR there! My neighbor works in his backyard, said he didn't hear a thing. There's no broken glass. I was stunned. Like, my hands went numb with rage, I couldn't think, I was in shock and disbelief. I had a hard time using the phone because I had no patience. I made all the appropriate phone calls, and spread the word to everyone I know. All I can do is hope. I had a lot tied into this Supra, even in the short time I had it. I was supposed to use it as a reliable DD eventually for community college. I was almost through getting all maintainence done before I aquired another block to build on. This was going to be my first major financial responsiblity away from home. This was going to be my pride and joy, some thing to show for the effort and money that you just can't come up with just partying.
Damn.
Please keep an eye out, especially in the Bay Area and Central valley in Cali, thanks.

Thought I'd give yall a heads up that this happens no matter where you live.

Chriso, I'm sorry I didn't get the airbag cpu out before this BS.

Yeah, plate is 5szv045
Nothing special in parts, just hks intake, most of 3" exhaust. I work too much to tinker.
I'll feed the culprit their left nut when I find'em. My efforts shouldn't go down the drain cuz some tweaker wants to get from A to B fast. Its like some one raping your woman. Disrespectful.
In the mean time, life goes on.
Thanks for looking into it.

wow that scares me alot, today after me and my friends went out to eat and came back, I saw a guy walk up to my car with some keys and look around the inside of my car, and luckly I came right in time, saved my baby, he gave it all the weird looks and stuff too, my car is pretty much all stock except for the 3" exhaust, intake and bov, reminds me of how much I love my baby! and so sorry about your car, didn't mean to hijack your thread

I'm sick of seeing supras get stolen. The scary part about supras, is that my key works on three other supras in my community (I actually am friends with the owners, I didn't just walk up and test it). God will give the theives what's coming to them. Best of luck on finding your baby. I'll be keeping a close eye out. God bless.

-Positive lead to fuse box has ~4inches of red 16awg, joined by shielded pink disconnects
-Megan racing DP, stainless 4" to 2nd cat, 3" cat back. Painted flat black from muffler to 3rd elbow in


Thats about as in depth as I could get without telling you how it drives.
Now that its night time, I remember trying to get rid of the interior film on the windshield by using windex moist wipes. Like, instant upgrade!! But the exterior of the windshield filmed back over, so it must be fun trying to see the road at night with oncoming traffic. This is the one time I can pray to get a BHG, lol

Agreed....it will come full circle on those a$$hats. It use to be cool when some people come up and give you props on the old-school ride. But nowadays, you have to be cautious of who is being genuine or not.

Best of luck to you, holmes.
