Oh, and no smog station, and i haven't been pulled over once for my loud exhaust. I am in Southeast Texas though so it may be different for you northerners;) I am originally from Reno Nevada, now that place really sucks.

I live up in the DFW area and I don't think anyone gets pulled over for loud exhausts... because I've got a few people a day driving by my apartment that are louder than fuck.... but just because I haven't been pulled over doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

Nope, but they will target you and harass you...

My supra has been broken for a year and a half, had to get another job to finally start putting her back together. I have 90 percent of the parts (just found out i need more). She will be back together in another month or two. Does anybody know when and where TX2K10 will take place?

Heh, you feel lonely?!? I'm in Texarkana, there are two mk3s in town. I own one, and my friend has the other(that hasn't run in 4 years). I'd like to attend meets, but most of them are halfway across texas.

Is your avatar your car? wiseguy


Yes, that's my baby. She's got a 10 footer paint job, but that's the last thing I'll worry about. I picked her up a year and half ago from a toyota shop worker. Said he had never taken it over 90 mph, no races, nothing. The way it runs and the almost perfect interior(factory) I believe him. It's an 87' with around 116,000 original miles on it. Got truely lucky; he was asking $9k. But, he settled for me showing up with $5k in cash. Something about money in your face that makes you forget what your doing, lol!

I need some help with blue printing my car as well. I mean I can handle easy stuff, turbo timer, intercooler kit, down pipe, stuff like that. But after a lil more tech it gets over my head. I used to be a GM guy(well still am via 95 t/a in the backyard), but have gotten hung up on mk2 and mk3 supras.
