So it's a long update, but here it goes. I recently got 2 more cars. I bought Fastcars' clean S13(updates will be posted soon on that) which is currently in the shop for the airbag update. I just put on NISMO sideskirts for my R34 and painted them. I have Carbon Fiber Fenders coming soon.

The big news however, is that i finally got Jay-z in my life as well as my RB28. Translation: I got a 2jz powered car. Specifically, a 1994 MK4 Supra.
Now I know what you're thinking. "Why the hell i would buy something that looks like that?" Well here's what happened. On the way to drop the S13 off, i saw it sitting in the driveway like that. It looked rusty and it kinda was. Then the owner came out and we started talking about the history. Apparently he bought it as a project car, but had too much on his hands and he needed money so he was letting it go. He had it for months and some of the weather affected the bodywork. But despite that, he said that it runs(although only on 3 cylinders). I was thinking he was lying, so he got the keys and it started up. Then he needed V$2250 for it, but with amount of time and rarity of OEM parts it wasnt worth that much. So i negotiated him down to V$1500 for it with the rims, which had dust on them but was otherwise clean. So after i dropped off the S13, i went back and got the Supra. It did backfire abit and the transmission was abit...slow. When I got back, i checked the vin number and it turns out this used to be a turbo model, the RZ. What i plan to do with it is basically have something to run with the R34, like a sidekick.

Finances:
S13 purchase V$5000
R34 Nismo Skirts and fenders V$1000
MK4 Supra RZ V$1500
-V$14000
___________
Total remaining:V$6500

I've worked on a few JZ's before, so i might have this running quicker than expected. My recent inspection on the car shows that structurally its still got strength left in it, so i might have to do some welding. Its gonna take abit of time though. I have the perfect color to paint it with

And i can fix the rear bumper and make a carbon lip piece for it. I think the roof might have to be replaced, so im just gonna get a carbon roof. Idk about the spolier yet.
