A good thing would be to meetup at the next Riverstone Cruise In -- next one is on April 21st:

http://www.poboyscarclub.com/calendar.html

Every 3rd Saturday from 2PM until dark @ 2200 Riverstone Blvd. Canton, GA 30144

Literally hundreds of hot rods and modified cars show up every month.

To give you an idea:

$5 to enter your car in the show. Free to just show up and see some incredible rides and meet hundreds of very cool car guys without putting up with the punks that show up at some of the other shit meets I've been to around this town...

I'll probably bring the hardttop up there on the 21st.

I'd meet up with you guys, just to say hello and see your cars.
Right now my supra is apart for full restoration, so I'd be rolling large in my daily:

I went to the varsity on Thursday and then a meet in Gwinnett on Saturday. Lot of young kids in pieces of shit that think they are the shit. At the varsity, a good 80% of the cars were 80's caprices and such with obnoxiously loud sound systems and 22's... Of course doing burnouts and acting like bad-asses. I hadn't gone to that meet in a number of years, and it reminded me why.

The Gwinnett meet was OK. Some dick approached me asking to race and saying "it's just a Honda". I told him, "I like having my license, and you can do a lot of different shit to a Honda". He looked mad.

I think I am going to try and arrange an Mk3 meet if anyone is interested (will be in a separate thread).

both of those meets are shit fests, i wish the city would disallow them to meet at the varsity and gwinnett (i will never go anywhare near that place) is just full of old rice thats been sitting in the sun for 5 years. Barrett is where the big tuners hang out now days but there are only 20 guys in that group and then the rest is a bunch of redneck trucks and hondas with no bumpers

if you want to do a monthly local GA thing it needs to be somewhere nice and in a location that is not Balls

Lol you are grumpy.

Honestly, that's exactly why I want to do this to meet and exactly why I'm pushing supras only (aside from those who's cars are under the knife of course). The more low key an exclusive you keep it, the more of that typical scene vibe you keep out. I don't particularly enjoy the varsity or the gwinnett meets, so I'm trying to do my own thing. You are more than welcome to help pick out locations and set up various other details. It would be nice to have someone else on board with this.

I will say, you can't expect everyone to have nice cars. There are bound to be a bunch of works in progress (rice obviously being a different story), but as long as everyone acts like an adult it should be fun. What about a bbq at a park?

Drift motion offers a service where they replace leaking capacitors. Might look into that.

Unfortunately I don't have a 1j, otherwise I'd help you out.

Thanks for that and yes I know Driftmotion has that service and I am going to send it to him I just wanted to be 100% sure it was the ECU but for 60 dollars I really have nothing to loss so I will just send it his way.

I did the stage 1. Wasn't too hard, but you'll want to have a dial gauge+magnetic mount if you don't already have one.

I might have it-
Lemme check.

Damn!- sorry, ATL. Turns out I have an extra temp gauge sensor, not the CSI switch.

There is one by me, (tucker/atlanta area about 2 hours away from macon) that did a 1JZ swap for a guy over here. I'll have to ask him the details. They did good work though, his engine bay looks amazing and he has yet to have any problems.

Honestly right now I'm just on the warpath to get this thing running like it's new. Tentative plan (once this hellish semester ends) is to:
- replace all vac tubes with nice silicone
- New rad/fan
- Timing belt, water pump
- Head gasket (+rebuild?)
- brakes/pads
- shocks and suspension

Then all of the upgrades hah. I'm not really looking for any shops so much as some fellow Supra owners nearby

Damn, that's quite impressive; here I am struggling to get my 7mge back on its feet (er, wheels). Hopefully I'll be able to make some real progress beginning in a couple of weeks... What series/year is your NA?

I've heard that conversion's a bitch... I'm glad I don't have to worry about it hah. Have you upgraded your NA at all? Or is it just basically pure stock?

Still sounds like a pretty nice DD to me... I'm gonna head that route once I clear everything else up, but I'm sure I'll eventually head down the turbo road (although I'm still debating between NA-T or a simple swap).
