i guess this is more directed for the people who get snow and store there car(s). what are your plans? or is it a secret?
i got nice plans....
SP67 with a .68 a/r, custom exhaust mani, custom MKIV style intake mani, big FMIC, 3.5" exhaust and DP with dump pipe for external wastegate, bigger radiator, JE pistons, crower rods, re-balanced crank and blueprinted (crank seems a little off some vibration)

and some other mods....also its getting repainted this winter, either the red it used to be, or white like it is now just professional, black, or a dark saphire blue..

so what are your plans?

Seal up the hatch before it starts leaking water into the rear tire hatch again.

Actually... I just found out my father is building me a car port... so, It looks like I'm driving my corolla this winter, and parking the Supra..

Start her up every 2 weeks or so, and drive for about 30 minutes, and park her again.

So; nothing too much. That fuel pump should go in next, with the 550cc injectors... then I'm going to prepare my brain for the e01... so prepare for questions. :)

i don't know if i should start to seriously mod up my supra considering i got a new kick ass paying job, or buy myself a yamaha R6. Either way i'll be doing a custom or purchasing a full 3" exhaust, mandrel bent IC hardpipes, HKS BOV.

I always park mine for the winter and drive my beater 86 4Runner "BushBuddy"! And she needs some luv'n too before long!

My plans otherwise is to foucus my buget on the body, trim and paint by leaving her over the winter with my local body shop. I'll catch a price break by giving them the time to do her at their leisure when things are slow for them... As Long As I have her back before early to mid April depending on the weather.

Come April I'll be looking to get the 3"DP\Catback as well as Eibach Springs & and shocks(yet to be determined)

I'm fighting with myself about keeping TEMS or not.
