Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

Along with a late, and rare, twin­turbo model and a large num­ber of spares that he refers to as ‘half a car’, Nick owns the white 1990 model you see here. ‘It’s a tur­bocharged MkIII that I bought 16 years ago. The Supra was a quick car for its time and I re­ally like the styling so I spent a long time look­ing for the right one be­cause I wanted to avoid an ex­am­ple with lots of prob­lems. This one was in gen­er­ally good con­di­tion. It needed at­ten­tion to the paint­work and there was some cor­ro­sion around the rear wings and whee­larches, but I sorted those out. And I’ve re­placed the head gas­ket with an up­graded item along with high-ten­sile ARP head bolts. I do a lot of the work my­self with help from other club mem­bers, but on the whole it’s been very re­li­able. It mostly gets used for spe­cial oc­ca­sions rather than daily driv­ing, but I at­tend a lot of shows and it’s lovely to drive over long dis­tances. It’s a very com­fort­able and us­able clas­sic, and one I def­i­nitely won’t be part­ing with.’
