    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think it's a vinyl wrap...adds too much weight. SLOW CAR! :laugh:

    You probably know this already; it's often used on test and pre-production cars which have not yet been introduced at a car show to "camouflage" the exact shape and lines of the car when such "spy shots" are taken.

    Yup. Used to see cars in the Detroit area all the time with their lines hid in various ways.

    Need to interrupt the Kraut-fest with a JDM public service announcement.

    Picked up my dream car last Fall - '95 Supra TT 6 speed bone stock (cept for wheels, which are currently barf). Even though people gloss over the stock performance of these things I'm thoroughly happy coming from a 90s Ford Taurus daily driver. Awesome powerband for both city and highway driving cause of the sequential twins and stays neck and neck with the E46 M3s and recent S4s that I've come across. I've come to realize the Supra spoiler might as well be a fishing lure.

    Will be a few years until I take it to the 600hp single turbo / e85 mark. Unless I hit the lotto. Then it's Vin Diesel time. Come Spring the first order of business is a wide-arch carbon fiber front/rear fenders to allow for 10 inch wheels up front, 13s in the back. Likely going with a set of Work Meister S1s once that's complete. By year's end I'll add exhaust / boost electronics to reach 420hp on the stock twins.

    Kinda... here's the console and the engine bay. Take my word that it's spotless. Black, too.

    My awsome mustang! I used to own a challenger but it parked like a tank and I hated that.

    Several sources seem to have the '95 Supra TT running 13.5s 1/4 mile times.

    Depends on the year and source but the e46 m3 looks to run 13.1s to 13.6s; they seem to be fairly matched.

    Just a little more boost and that Supra will be right quick indeed.

    Quarter mile times for the stock supra turbo range in the 13s, yep.
