    posted the other day in the main forum, i figured i would do the same here where the thread won't be buried so quickly.

    Specs: 89 toyota supra turbo. 5spd, targa roof. Low mile, bone stock, one owner, and barely driven. Mahogany brown pearl, w/ tan leather (fairly rare color combo from what i've heard). it's mad 80's and i love it.

    So rare I've never seen the combo especially with those wheels, good find.

    Looking at that extra clean interior makes me wonder, how many miles? Does the TEMS still work?

    I'd guess mid 60K miles. I've also never seen that color combo, good find. And yes, does your TEMS work? I'm betting it does, as mine still does at 90K miles now.

    it actually has 94000 miles. i verrified with carfax and it appeared to have only been driven around 4k/yr, then it was just garaged in about 2000. the owner was original, even gave me the window sticker. he never parked it out side and always washed/waxed it. it's a pity i don't have a garage right now :hsd: just going to have to wash it every other week or so. and yes the tems still work

    i had never come across the color either, and this is my third mk3. i think it was the only color other then the white package, or black in 89 with paint matched side mouldings (no stupid gray stripe down the length of the car). i think the owner had the stock sawblades polished or chromed, but i agree they look nice. i'll probably keep them and put fatter rubber on

    Didn't the jade green 93 have matched moldings? That's another rare color, either you're in a pretty exclusive crowd with yours as well.

    My aunt used to have almost the same car. Same color, 5 speed and everything. I think the head gasket blew right around 200k miles and she got rid of it...

    Don't park it on the street. Find a garage; if the garage is far away, get a moped to ride to the garage. That shit's gonna get stolen or broken into or bumped by a parallel-parker before the year is out.

    i love the 7m, it's a torque monster that makes for a very fun daily. if i end up swapping in the future, i will most likely go 2j so i can get it barred

    Someone offered to trade me a mint red MK3 turbo Supra for my 91 Nissan Pulsar GTI-R. I sort of regret not doing it. The thing only had 54,000 orginal km on it. And my car had 97,000km
