15th Anniversary Edition '97 Toyota Supra

If I had to start at the beginning I would say that I was born with automotive blood. My Dad was a Toyota mechanic for most of my childhood and has since moved on to working for Toyota Motor North America for the last 25 years.
I was 17 the first time I drove a Supra in 1996. A Customer brought one into the dealer to get an oil change. It was Forest green with a tan interior, turbo with the V160. I was working for the summer as a Lot Porter and the temptation was just too great.
After the oil change was done, I snuck out the back entrance and ripped it up and down the street a few times, The owner of the car just happened to be walking to 711 down the SAME street to get a drink. And that's a great segway into how to learn valuable life lessons when you get your FIRST job. Needless to say, that was the last time I drove a Supra till I bought my own.
This Car will ALWAYS be a work in progress, It truly is my dream car and I’m so grateful to, after so many years, be able to own this icon. The Supra is the one car I don’t think I could ever get rid of, and much to my wife's dismay I still have a long way to go before it’s complete.
