Are you a writer/editor for Road and Track? Or possibly Turbo and High Performance.....because I would renew the membership if you were lol.Here's a little update for everyone...
This is what happened on my way to our semi-local Supra meet. I was driving as a Supra should be driven through the twisty Cascade Mountains, and as I headed in to a hairpin turn, I started to brake. A quick assessment by my ninja like race car driving super skills indicated that I needed a tad bit more deceleration. Fearing that the asphalt would be shredded by the grip of my Reikin Raptors, I downshifted in to third. This brought the rev's to ~5500 rpm's, which was maintained long enough to push out the front main. That's the hypothesis anyway.
Well at least there's no shortage of motors in your possession!Ha ha my exact thoughts as I was fueling up! Even when she's broke, she looks dang good! Thanks Ron.
Yeh, it's an easy fix, I just think it's time to retire that high mileage motor. Plus, I lost enough oil to cause concern. I'm just not sure she can take any more thumping.
Thanks Pyro. Show your car proper love and she'll keep you smiling. I with that worked for women...Kenny, I love your car! This is the motivation for my car. Someday I'll be able to afford to get a quality respray for my car. Your car is just beautiful though! The color, the xxr wheels, everything!

So, the poor sap had to say goodbye to his very first car. He'd had it for nine years. Poor sucka... Happy me though! :biglaugh:Read trought your build. Sweet!! Hardtop with sun roof is quite rare.

Where in Washington is your shop?Hey everyone!
Not gone at all. Still here. Still have my Supra. It hasn't seen pavement for about 4 years.
I changed careers. No longer doing biomedical work. I resigned, opened up my own shop, and have been loving it! 4 years and going strong!
