thats some help i wouldnt mind. this one is sitting in a garage in des moines. i owned an 87 before this, pulled the motor/tranny rebuilt the motor (HG issues) redid all the seals in the tranny. body was beat. sold it when my "full time" job started to become more "some of the time". two weeks later get a call from the kid asking if i would take it back since he blew it up. after that his dad calls and says his kid was out hot rodding it, he watched him basically hold it at redline at a stoplight while "racing" his friend. his dad goes "tell him to F*** off, he doesnt deserve to have money when he does things like this".

only issue with this one that im looking at is it needs the clutch bled and a TPS (seller took it off to put on his rather than buying new). body is rust free has a dent in the fender (younger brother can fix it) glass is all good, new struts (non tems :( ) and eibach springs all new as well.

omaha, 87 7mge.....looking for fellow Supra friends. Currently rebuilding would love to have someone help!!!
Know the feeling man...Backlash has been a big help to me man, he knows his stuff. I've been through all the steps of a full rebuild tho so hit me up anytime. I know how big of a help just having someone else there to give opinions is.

thats the one. guy has 3 of em (supras). seems decent enough. im shippin him one of my extra TPSs (ya go figure had an extra). told him if he proves it runs ill come out and snag it for my haggled down price

the old one made me laugh for the most part. i drove it all spring/summer and most of fall. motor was great, had the oil sent in for analysis (diesel buddy gets it done for me) and everything seemed perfect, so idk.

Yeah I was meaning the 86. I should have used better punctuation it would have made more sense haha. I've noticed not many people keep the single piece wing compared to the 3 piece. Maybe its just me

There are a select few that prefer the look (Hi!)....but not many. I am keeping mine because I think it looks much meaner and aggressive on a widebody MK3...which is the route I'm going in the loooong distance future.

the only thing i honestly prefer over the older is the 89+ tail lights. everything else is just a choice. the spoiler is just a fancy add on, i honestly dont think we go fast enough for it to make any difference haha. the 87 style with a lip looks just as good as an 89 with/without one

although, best color is black on these cars. shows every damn curve

Ill admit I really like black on these cars but I really like my gun metal grey... With a good polish mannn she shines like liquid haha. Towards the spoiler I think itdepends on what gears we have and how big our wallets are... I think that pretty much determines how fast we can go haha

I very much agree, these cars even look good wingless IMO. The 89 tails are a no brainer though...much nicer looking.

Yeah I'll probably switch to the 89+ tails but I'm sticking with the 88 bumper. I want the tiny amount of air to be scooped in to cool the intercooler and radiator haha.

damn. thats gotta blow. luckily with what i drive there is a near 0 percent chance of getting a speeding ticket. 85 is bad enough in a lifted tj

and it didnt quote maxburn in my last reply. that is confusing
Yep he wasn't very impressed when he pulled me over... He sounded a little... pissed haha.
What do you drive currently?

ive gotten 3 fix it tickets for my tires w/ no flaps or fender coverage... um, pulled over for too loud exhaust (now it has a banks monster kit on it) and pulled over once to be asked if i was on "iowa side" mudding... luckily had just taken it through the car wash in blair so told em NOPE.

but for speeding... nope. its got pep, but 60 65 is where you lose the pull. i can take most of the lil honduh civic rice rockets in omaha though haha

BLAIR NE... they are freakin exhaust nazis. HWY 30 is one of the most used drug routes in this county, and they pull more people over for mufflers than they do with drugs. My dad is a deputy here in the county running for sheriff so ive got a target on my back as it is. its just pathetic. OOOO you wanna run down main with no headlights puffin on a join, NO BIGGIE.... HOLY SHIT you paid to have a nice exhaust put on, well heres your ticket...

ya, not a fan of that crap. my buddy has a BUILT 07 F superduty dually it was built by his brother who owns C&C complete in bennington. the truck is FAST, he gets a ticket weekly. his latest? 49 in a 45.... they dont like anything nicer than they can buy

I got pulled over for like 57 in a 55. Never even told me how fast he clocked me, probably because it wouldve been embarrassing for him lol

Wasn't even driving the supra either.

I was pulled over for not stopping at a stop sign (which I know I did..) The cop was a younger guy that just wanted an excuse to ask me about my car. Like what it was haha. He asked me how fast it goes and I was like the speed limit sir. He was like ... Good answer... lol

the bone headed part of the 49 in a 45 was that it was going up a hill as you exit town, he was clocked literally 20ft from the 60mph speed limit sign. cop got short with him and kept saying "you cant go faster until after you pass the sign." he had been following us all through town, we had to go pick stuff up at the fire department for our fish fry, so from the fire dept, to the place we get propane, then over to the grocery store, then to where the ice trailer was sitting, then on the way out.

the old supra got a fix it ticket every time i went to town, "its too loud"

i think my uncle has the record for verbal warnings. i guess when the plates on your viper read "HLO OFCR" they all want a chance to give him a hard time

the loudest vehicle we've ran through town was a hood piped mud truck. big block, stupid aggressive cam. that lasted all of about 3 minutes before they said either tow it home or it gets impounded. it had a few other things that brought it to the attention of the law other than just the pipes, but theyre what got em pulled over. it was a really stupid redneck engineering feat. with i had pics of it, but the kid moved out of the county and the truck eventually blew up...

44" swampers (no mud flaps, outside the fender lines) questionable seats that i honestly think were held in by zip ties, no speedo, just the biggest tach you can find screwed to the cowl, plexiglass windows that popped in and out. plexi windshield... full cage the ONLY reason it had plates at all was because the truck was bought in state so the vin inspection wasnt needed. top speed was like 40-45. like i said, giant redneck feat of physics

im not for sure on the seats, they may have been welded but with that guy who knows.

Hwy 77 in between Lincoln and Wahoo is redic also. I used to take that drive to work everyday. True story: back in 09 was pulled over 11 times in one year, was given 6 tickets out of those. There was only one that I thought I deserved and it was like 78 in a 65 because I was super late to work. The rest were tickets all under 8mph over the limit. I ended up losing my license for 6months because of points. My wife is a grandma driver and takes that hwy to work still to this day and has been pulled over 5 times on it for speeding since like 07 but of course has not been given one ticket. I think they just like to pull people over for something to do over there. At the time I was driving a scion Tc, my wife drove a grand am....funny thing is ever since I stopped driving that hwy in 09 I havent been stopped one time. Not even in the supra.

so i might be passing on this car in des moines, guy took pictures that made it look way better than the detailed pics show. passenger side is perfect, drivers side paint is oxidized, surface rust behind the door, the front fender isnt just dented but also looks tweaked and its right on the body line. he still has yet to prove to me that it runs like he said he would. UGH the search continues i guess

well found a pair up in pierce im going to pick up tomorrow for 2500. black one is an 89 5sp NA clean title, motor and tranny are currently pulled (they come with), white care is an 89 turbo targa 5sp, no title parts car. the 89 runs and drives great other than it slips in 4th and 5th under full boost. black one has supposedly (cant read the odo in his pics) low miles, brand new tires, motor ran and clutch was good when he pulled them. he was gonna do the swap then lost interest.







pending condition of the front bumper, ill be taking the 89+ tails, and the 89+ front bumper, have the bumper sprayed by my brother who is in school for auto body. obviously motor/tranny/wiring im taking for a build to go into the black one. all else on the white car (even the 3 piece spoiler) will be fair game to whoever wants to come down and strip it
