    Having owned nearly every toyota in the performance spectrum I'd advise you to buy cautiously...I spent $30k building mine up and sold it for under $10k, they're money pits and practically worthless now. Will never own another import (used to live in Brisbane).

    I love the shape of the Supra and the interior, and the 2JZ with twin turbos are pretty nice too :D It's a car I've always wanted to have. Modding cars would be the same for almost every other car out there though, you spend big building it up and it gets sold at a super low price compared to the money that's went into it.

    In the past 3 years the supra I sold end of 2011 went from sale value of 26k to 9k and to keep them running (being dated vehicles) costs a premium...nice looking cars, just something I'd never go near again.

    I have a reliable daily for the family (Chevy van) and building a classic for my toy...been eyeing a 1950's Buick coupe but also have my sights set on a 1930 model A tudor both of which are sitting around the corner from me. If I got offered one of the 70's model Corollas down the line I would likely take that in the garage too, I grew up in classics but had a 12 year stint in everything Toyota JDM.

    BTW not saying the Supra is a bad car to get, just check it over REAL good top to bottom and don't sink to much in one...know when to fold your cards if you have to, I do however still have hookups in the Aus supra scene so could point you in the right direction if i called in some favors when you start looking.

    This was my very beloved car way back during my last year of high school which was circa 1997.
    A Nissan Skyline GT coupe R-32. Rechipped and had a few other mods I can't remember.

    Nowadays I drive a Toyota Hilux Surf turbo diesel 4x4.

    Seeing some of these rides make me miss my little '90 Talon TSi AWD. It was pretty built and made 360 WHP and 330 WTQ @ 22 psi.

    You will love it. I have an 05 Goldwing (back when the only choices were color and whether to have ABS) and it has taken me a lot of places. My other bike is a Harley-Davidson 09 Road Glide. Otherwise, I drive a 2002 Buick LeSabre (152,000 miles with no major repairs).

    This post is pretty old but the problem had nothing to do with hill assist or drive by wire.

    The culprit ended up being the rear O2 sensor which was over looked.

    Really been digging these...was into the old shorty 40's (FJ40) and these seem to have a similar feel to them.
