How it all began...

I purchased a 1990 toyota supra turbo A/T w/ every extra you could imagine (expect a CD player ) for 4100$, yes way more than i should of spent...

Clean body, Clean interior.... perhaps if i hadnt of driven 6 hours after a 10 hour work shift i would of been cohearant enough to notice the mechanical problems... But i wasnt so after purchasing a supra with a blown head and starting my 6 hour trip home to make it to work in the morning it breaks down about 50 miles down the road. Throwing a rod in the bottom end, making me abandon the vehicle on the side of the road 5 hours from anyone i know.... lol

Tidewater of Virginia was the car dealship that sold it to me, Thanks guys....

So i find a friend with a truck, rent a uhal and set off to get my vehicle that weekend. When i get it back i take it to a local garage, Cotton's Garage. where they informed me i needed a new engine...

Orderd one from http://www.osakajdmmotors.com/ who sent me a engine with a blown head. lol... refunded me 400$... So now i had to pay this shop an extra 1200 on top of the 1400 i just gave them to put the engine in to put a new head on a vehicle i just bought .... Alota cases much worse than mine wish i had visited this site before i orderd http://www.ef-honda.com/ben/Osaka.php

Anyways thats how it all started. Sure mostly stupidity on my part, shouldnt purchase a car after being up for 24 hours and pressed for time lol... Shouldnt of bought the cheapest engine i could find on the net... But that is what i did lol...

So about 4 months after buying my car i got to drive it, since then ive known it was all worth it.... Although my wife was not so understanding at first.... Now she loves the car as much as i do though.

..... More to come later about my trials w/ Claire (my cars name)
