Toyota Supra: A Retrospective – XCAR

Sharing this from a friend that’s an absolute Supra fan Mr. Supra Nick.

“”Wow! For once a video with true stats and true auto enthusiast opinion rather than the usual BS about the Supra!”

UConn Car Club Annual Car Show

We have coverage from the UConn Car Club Annual Car Show that was this past weekend April 14th Located Rentschler Field, East Hartford CT from our East Coast fam Jeff Aldana.

BobsYrUncle crew goes to Cars & Coffee, Irvine P.1

Car & Coffee Irvine is always something to look forward to even when it’s meeting the homies up at 6:15 in the morning. I met up with few friends at the Irvine Spectrum and caravan-ed it to Cars and Coffee shortly after.

(Pre-meet)

Finally parked and ready to walk around the meet.

This Merc totally caught me off guard. Didn’t think much of it besides ey look super clean classic car. Till I walked over to the front of the car and saw the hood up and what i found under the hood O.o WOW!

The 2JZ-GTE fitted in the engine bay!!! There’s wasn’t many mods to the stock 2JZ but it was nice to see it in an old Merc style Benz. The car also was sporting a face lift interior. IS250 dash  gauges and center console fit just perfect in the car. Wish I had more photos but memory card problems = FAIL and pictures didn’t come out. 😦 https://i1.wp.com/i3.photobucket.com/albums/y57/billshea99/IMG_1160copy.jpg

Because Supra: JZA80 Appreciation

I don’t usually post Friday through the weekend but I found these amazing Pics via Stanceworks – M.Burroughs and my jaw dropped. There’s just a few cars that are truly timeless in design and the JZA80 Mark IV supra is one of them. Body lines flow so well and we all know the 2JZ-GTE is one of the best motors out there. Iron block twin turbo out the factory back in the 90’s is total genius for it’s era. The pics below give me a total appreciation the JZA80 platform. Simple, clean with factory aero and still makes you stop and stare.

Enjoy
