Fateful Day

Rate this Entry
Woo. Trying this new feature out. I started out loving cars when I was young, thanks to my family. I ended up not getting my license until I was 18, but I ended up buying a pretty decent (or so I thought) MkIII N/A Supra:

I held onto that for about a year, and decided it was too rusty and smoky, so I started shopping around. I found a 97 VR-4 for $3500 (scam, lol) and caught the 3S bug. I ended up picking up a '94 3000GT VR-4 a few weeks later. Pretty good shape cosmetically, and decent enough mechanically. Pics from the day I brought her home:

Yep, the previous owner stuck some sweet gold/black numbers on the ashtray to remind them what the shift pattern was because the crappy aftermarket shift knob had no pattern on it.

I caught the bug, and went from having money to spare to having a money pit.

    8k + taxes. Not too bad, considering it's a really solid car, and has been reliable. With another 3k worth of parts into her, lmao.

    When I got her 134k. I'm at very nearly 154k. Almost two years. Just over 10k per year, not too bad for a DD
