yeah its true i mean i know how to do the basic stuff.. oil brakes tires. spark plugs etc but engine swapping and upgrades kinda blows over my head.

i didnt know SoCal has their own forum? what is it?

i dont see too many supras around my area i mean i seen like 2-3 in vallejo area, and i havent seen any on the peninsula yet i dont think...

nice thank you for linking me up to here. i see they have supra meets but that was last year in nov i wonder if they'll have one again.
yea i think matrixs are hybrids.. i think so.
thats funny they're only like a wat? 2.0 maybe 2.4 at the most? lol

i blew past this 240 that thought i was racing with him when i was just in a rush.. cause i was driving fast on the freeway comin off the bay bridge.. and all of a sudden i hear some muffler hella loud like someone was accelerating or at least trying to . i look over and its some dropped dark green 240 with a giant muffler .. he started weaving through traffic then got caught up behind traffic and i just kept going.. haha :wavey:

yep we got to get are shit to together up here....Do you drive it daily or does it run....? haha :biglaugh:
Sorry havent had time to take some decent pix yet. Maybe this week sometime. No this isnt a daily driver more like a weekend warrior. I drive a company vehicle 90% of the time and this is just for cruisin. Ive had the car for about 2 years now and ran a total of 1200 miles only. I know pathetic huh. Just finished overhaulin the whole engine about 4 months ago. Everythings cool except for an annoying little oil drip from somewhere (maybe cps)....pending to be fixed. Other than that runs really hard and pulls like a mutha...!

Black cars are a pain. The thing is that with just a light layer of dust it looks 10X worse. I pretty much wipe it down before taking it out. My rear tires are BF Goodrich comps...they are a little beefier in the back. These were bought with the car and I cant wait to get a set of staggered deep dish.

lol i was suprised when i passed my smog. cause everytime i drove it the smell was so strong. but i passed.
My buddy with a silver 91T just tried to smog his car. They told him he was a gross polluter. :1zhelp: Funny thing is that his car runs great, idles fine. I guess something about a small crack in the Accordian hose and EGR valve. Cali smog sucks.

Welcome Carmichael
Hope to see you around cali.

would like some pics of your supra man. share some. :icon_bigg


if you think blacks bad with dirt...
look at white supras like mine.. little bit of dust or dirt. and looks gritty..

whats nice about black cars .. is those after washing or raining pictures you take.. with the beads of water on the car..
cant do that with white cars... i dont think...


i think i need a new set of rims and tires for my mk3 the past owner blew out the rear driverside and its alllll grinded up so im running 3 falkens and 1 michelin... ghey
