    Newbie With Marmite Supra.... Thoughts

    Hey Guys/Girls

    Been a member on this forum for a while now and never introduced myself.
    So my names Luke and i drive a yellow supra from Bristol.
    Car was originally a NA 5 speed but a couple of years ago the head gasket went so decided that i would go down the route of a 2JZ-GTE VVTI from a supra that Garage-D was breaking.
    JodyT on here converted my car for me along with all maintenance and any other niggles ive had since owning the car.
    Back in March the car had a full glass out repaint in Ferrari Giallo Modena and fitted ridox skirts, oem spats and active front splitter.

    So what do you guys think?

    If you were an engine would you like JP as your owner:-)? I'd report him to the RSPCE (Royal Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Engines).-Chris Wilson

    You are bloody nuts. Nothing comes close dude, what the hell would you replace it with? A GTR, that's like going from Kiera Knightley to Susan Boyle.-Supra Gaz

    It is indeed. I didn't buy it direct from Rich and have heard about the old post where people were trying to make money etc. I've since met up with Rich and I'd like to think he knows it's it good hands now.

    Strangely I really like it, a credit to you.

    for some reason it reminds me of my old Celica I had when I was 17 or 18, possibly my bad memory as it was 25 years ago.............
