    hi folks

    Im a truck driver and on a delivery i was doing 3 weeks ago stumbled across this car which sat in this spot for 11 years untouched. I got talking to the owner and having found out some of th story behind the car and how much he'd accept , we shook hands on it and the car was now mine. Im totally new to supras as im a skyline owner also but knew this car had potential..

    Details are

    1993 toyota supra sz
    w58 5 speed manual
    100% stock bar headunit
    115k kms
    1A1 anthracite in colour

    plans are

    subtle front lip
    lower suspension a bit on springs most likely
    source oem floor mats
    change oem 16s for oem 17s
    fit some spacers all round


    ive only driven the car onto recovery truck. It started first turn of the key when i connected a booster pack. Before i use it as a sunny weekend car i need to give it the full once over, including changing timing belt and tenioner, plugs and fluid change, new tyres and a 3 stage machine polish

    the car has no damage or rust but paint is very flat and lifeless, ill do full windows out respray in the winter but just want it presestable for the summer. Ive attached pics showing the resuts on a test panel the detailer did

    looking forward to members thoughts

    Looks like a cracking car love that colour..but makes you wonder how many other cars are left in sheds around the country like this??
    Will it get the same treatment as the skyline or just a respray?

    No just a windows out respray in the original colour. Keeping it close to stock will add value as there is very few standard cars around
