    Default The Mistress

    Ok, it's time to let this lady out into public again. The thread title comes from how my jealous wife refers to the Supra, in case you were wondering.

    The story: A friend of mine, Jeremy (or Turbo Drifter here) from the club originally owned this car. He, and a few of his friends, are responsible for most of the work done to get it to this point. Special thanks go out to Randy, Bill, and Tommy. I've seen this car develop over the years, and expressed my congrats on a job well done on several occasions.

    Mid 2009, Jeremy calls me and asks if I want to buy the car. I'm stunned - I can't imagine anyone giving up a car they've put this much blood, sweat, and tears into - especially given that you'll never recoup more than a small fraction of the costs/effort you've put into it. I talk to him for a couple hours, with the objective of convincing him to keep it. By the end of the conversation, its sounding as if he's coming around to my point of view.

    Fast forward several months.

    Beginning of Dec, 2009, Jeremy calls me again and says it has to go. I talk to him for a while about it and this time I can tell he's serious. Within a week I've arranged to get the car transferred to my name, pick it up and since then, I've been driving it daily.

    The car is pushing 578rwhp on pump gas with water / meth injection. I've never done a race gas tune. It's run 11.63 @ 123 mph on the strip with slicks. There was room for improvement on that run, too, but any faster than that and I'll get kicked off because there is no cage - not even a roll bar.

    Wow..... I drooled over the exhaust. Custom? Absolutely beautiful! Giving me ideas on where I want to take my body work/color down the road.

    I'm just glad the new GF has no issues with my other woman (the supra of course). lol The last one hated it and still does.

    Calling the exhaust 'custom' is like calling Angelina Jolie 'kinda cute'. I don't know how many small pie cuts have been put into it all together, but it's hundreds, and each one hand welded by a true artist in the field.
