Phil, you are the man. I am in the works of picking up my first Supra. I've been reading a bunch of your post. Thanks for educating and helping beginners out.

Glad to help, phamily. Please post back after you've purchased your Supra!

I haven't helped anyone purchase a Supra within the past few months, but if things are anything like they were (or worse), you have to use every national web site and car selling publication to find a Supra in great condition for sale. It's a very rare car, as you probably know. I know several people that literally had a suitcase full of cash, ready to hop on a plane to be the first to a seller. Of course, you still need to get it checked out by an *objective* person that's knowledgeable in the Mkiv, including a test drive....but if it passes all the tests you may need to be ready to pay on the spot. I even know of some sellers that would only sell to someone that *really* wanted a Supra, and that wasn't just buying it as an investment! They actually sold it for less than they could have, as long as the new owner was someone that would take care of it and appreciate it.

Good luck with your search, and again...please keep us informed.

Congratulations, phamily!!!

Welcome to the Supra brotherhood/sisterhood.

I don't know of any shop offhand in San Diego, but I'll do some checking and post back here.
