The burnouts were fun and it surprised my friends. the launches were stupid ricer clutch pop launches which i did because ill admit i was stupid and couldnt drive. i know the correct way for launching now and its twice as fast as that clutch popping shit ever was.

painted mudflaps looks bad. the wing isn't HORRIBLE, but it's not the greatest either. would look better if it were a different style lol

buying my supra sight unseen, then listened to my dad making me think that there was something really wrong with it. then completely disassembling the engine and then realized that i could have fixed it in 20 mins and be driving it right now. (just needed to clean the spark plug valley of oil due to bad cam cover seals and clean the spark plug wires of oil.) now every time i look at it i feel like the stupidest person on earth.:3d_frown:

Most definitely!

I have learnt more about my car in the last few months than I did in the last few years of owning her :)

The stock intercooler pipe near the air filter exploded about a mile from my house, I thought I shot a piston out of the block...

Car wouldn't idle or run well at all, it was chugging all over the place. I had to pull over and wrap a t-shirt around the pipe so I could limp my way home, I didn't have anything else big enough to cover the hole lol.

Stupidest thing would be me wrecking a supra 5 days after I bought it...with insufficient insurance coverage to cover a single penny (liability only)...!!

With my old motor, I accidently hooked up a vaccum line coming from the head to a coolant line coming off the throttle body.

I had no idea where it went. Well, needless to say after idling for about 10 sec and having coolant shot directly into my motor, I was scared shitless. White smoke everywhere!

I ended up changing the oil about 10 times over a 3 day period. Thank god no damage was done and the car ran great after. The first oil change was horrific though :(

I knew a guy that had that happen in his T-top camaro. His were glass though, and was a douche so he deserved it. Good luck with the repair or replacement.

A week after I bought my car I changed the oil and instantly got rod knock then proceeded to drive 10 miles home.Thanks for putting some thick ass oil in there to hide it bonesmoker!

Having a shop do the engine build, three weeks later bhg.

Taking it back to that shop to warranty bhg, headgasket never sealed from the shop.

Getting tired of pulling motor and pay another shop to put bhg'd motor in.

Driving the car from baltimore to roanoke and back with bhg, blew out coolant like a spigot had to stop every couple of miles to refill, 3hr trip took 8 1/2.

Give up on the supra and leave it sit for 4 years, dog totally destroyed paint and 2 out of three of the wipers. (still like this)

Continue to neglect the supra while I bankrupt myself on an 03 cobra.

Buying that crap ass almost completely worthless ssautochrome 600hp turbo kit. (still using it)

Blow the 100amp main fuse then break plastic around it and bend two sides together to make something closer to 500amp fuse lol. (still like that)

Yank the door closed just a little too hard and break handle at the top bolt. (still like that)

Bypassing the pcv system and use breathers for a few weeks, lost like 6qts of oil over entire time and flooded valley causing a night stuck in dark alley and misfire.:3d_frown:

Then last night when I finally get it running good me and a friend on way home from taco bell decide to play around a little and as soon as we get out of residential areas and no traffic near midnight, he does a third gear pull I leave it in fourth so he gets half a car in front of me until my bigger turbo spools as soon as it does I see a cop sitting on the side of the road, we both slam on our brakes but the cop turns his lights on, my buddy jumps on highway and I go straight well of course cop follows me. I figured maybe 15 over but wasn't sure because my speedo is broke, turns out I get five tickets with a whopping total of $1470 (still unemployed) apparently I was doing 94 in a 45, reckless driving, negligent driving, engaging in a speed contest, and to top it all off my license is suspended because of a $40 ticket I thought I paid. Luckily I didn't go to jail and my girlfriend was with me so she got to drive my car home. :cry:

The tow truck driver looked pissed when I said fuck yeah she can drive stick.:love:

Can't think of anymore right now but got plenty...
If anyone needs to feel better about their day I'll post more.
BTW Is there a prize for the winner?

Paying a shop to fix some rust. Worst idea ever... they thought it was white, not pearl white. I of course did not realize this myself at the time as that the guy was supposed to be a trained "body/paint guy". Yeah, the only body he probably knew anything about was his lover, Anthony.

Most people can't see it, but it's all I see when I look at the car.

And all the rust is back anyway.

Buying a Supra that was half-assed more than I'd realized for too much

Doing a Headbolt retorque with a shitty torque wrench (led to me fragging the motor last year)

Not realizing half the shit I needed to do on my rebuild in a certain order...causing more delays than there should've been...lol.

I think that about sums it up for now.

Removing the stock front lip from my 89, and throwing it in the garbage before installing a bomex 3 hole. After 1 month of driving the Bomex was ripped off the car after hitting a dip in the road.
