Well this has sort of snowballed - I've found a brilliant start point.
This is for sale up near clutch - and well within reach of my budget.

Images too big to inline.

Which is great, And its already got a 1JZ-GTE + R154 manual box in, So thats something I don't have to worry about (which is AWESOME).

No(r)way.
Aiming for this?



Just had to do it

Do it if you have money,time and facilities to do so, it's fun and exciting and gives you a deeper understanding of how your car is put together.. which also makes it easier to rebuild it when you trash it on the track But always remember, rebuilds tend to "take off" when you have just started, ending up way above budget. I find that part interesting too, cause you will end up a place you never dreamt about when you first bought the car!

Good luck!

Well I've discussed the plan with a fair few people. The missus isn't wild about a project car, but assuming the maroon supra above is mechanically sound then we've sort of agreed that I could just use it as a daily and do the paint etc at a later date.

And RE the 2J swap - The maroon one above currently has a 1JZ-GTE (which in stock configuration has 210KW) which is heaps of power.

Go for it! If it's all good then you get a fun project, if it fails miserably we all get to laugh at you (more)! It's win-win!

An outlaw Supra would be the shit, 'Balls. Do it Oz style... a Toyota with P-car RS + aboriginal vibe = win. Has anyone else done it?

No, Because anyone with Aboriginal blood would wreck the car for being disrespectful.

That and I don't think any form of "art" is acceptable on cars.

EDIT: Clutch - Exactly the same sort of look I'd be going for.
Love the bright green door pull from image #1. I'd do that but bright red.

That's a shame, could make for an impressive interior. Has the guy with the aboriginal art on his 911 Targa had problems? I thought that was painted by a well-known native artist. Cars melding performance with a personal aesthetic can transcend popular images about motorsport, but it's your project. Still, loving the notion of an outlaw Supra.

Honestly I'm sure no one would harm the car due to the paint, but I just don't think Aboriginal art is aesthetically pleasing.

I meant interior materials, not paint... but no matter. Build what you like and enjoy.
What do you have in mind for wheels? Old-school Watanabes or more modern in size & style?

I've put little effort into thinking about wheels..

Basically my thoughts are smallish diameter (17" max) and wide as practicable. So maybe 9.5 or 10 wide.
