Default O DEAR LORD what have i done now (56k take lunch a big one)

well started the week bummed out about not being able to go to NEBF and was just cruising craigslist for junk and ran across a project to wast time and hard earned cash on ( like i have any of that to spare )
found a 86.5 supra for 400 and decided it needed a home near me ...like rite out front .

any how it needs a transplant good old 7M DOA lol ( none of the Toyota guys seen that coming i bet )

it is dropped 2" shaved door handles some body kit and aftermarket spoiler theas things are more than likely going away as soon as i find stock parts to replace them with .
any how that is the new addition to the house hold here

P.*. gojo has something to share as well

not bad... looks like it needs a little TLC, and it could be a nice car

Hey its RWD at least, right? That means the possiblities are endless, or as far as your pocket book will allow.

L67+V6 F-body 5 spd + Supra = FUN!

If you do that, keep the kit and wing. they don't look that bad.

Mega NA build would be a lot lot lot of $, and would probably result in you being unique and not much else. If you're after the big power, stick to the turbo.

Snapped a rod eh? I've heard of it happening, if you leave your BHG long enough and leave a spun bearing long enough, it'll happen... but you'd have to be kind of idiotic to do that.
