MrLolololXD's 2002 Toyota Supra SZ-R

    ERMERGERD it's actually happening, I never thought this day would come! :D Here's a quick run down of everything so far.

    2002 Toyota Supra SZ-R
    91,000kms
    6spd manual
    Moonstone (6N0) colour
    fully stock
    has all of the usual options, plus one or two not so usual
    expected delivery time is mid-March

    It's an SZ-R, so it's a top of the line non-turbo. It has all the things that the turbo Supras have, big brakes, 6 speed Getrag manual, lsd, 17 inch wheels, basically an RZ but without the turbo. Plus it's a 2002 model, the last year Supra's were made, there were only a total of 337 Supra's made that year worldwide (Japan). As it's a non-turbo model it has a 2JZ-GE.

    It was an auction listing 4B, which is just about the best you can come across for a car this age. The highest possible rating is a 4.5B. Anything higher than that denotes a new car.

    Things that will need attention are:
    The gear stick boot (it's come unstitched, it's repairable but easier to just buy a new one)
    A little spot on top of the drivers side of the dash where it's popped up
    Fading on the front and rear bars, a patch on the driver's side of the roof and stone chips down the drivers side.
    I'm gonna need a new set of tyres too, the ones on it now are pretty well buggered.

    Anyway, on to the exciting part, PICTURES! :msuh3:

    These are the first few pics I saw of it in the auction listing, including the grading sheet:

    And here are a bunch of pics of it sitting in the docks in Japan, all de-registered and waiting to be packed onto a boat, which it will be this week. The fading is a lot more noticeable in these pics.

    That's all the interesting pics for now. It looks quite dirty and like it's rusty underneath. But I've been told it's just really dusty, I believe them because they are one of the country's most reputable and well known importers and they've been in the business for well over a decade now. It only has minor discolouration, and mild surface rust on the exhaust, in a couple of spots, apparantly it's held up quite well compared to some other cars of similar age.

    I'm currently in talk with a guy I know to do a full respray in the same colour and I'm tracking down some new bits for it, like the gear stick boot. Also might be looking at getting a few mild mods aswell to whack on when I get it.

    Congrats Harley. I'm sure you will do a great job restoring it and probably modifying it later at some point (personally if I was going to do a full respray I'd pick another colour - maybe midnight blue (might clash with interior though). Just don't forget to clean the interior early on in case the previous owner picked his nose or something :p


    And how is Project GetYourLicense going?


    The only problem is that you'll be seen as a P plater in a Supra... if you know what I mean ;)

    Epic mate, I for one LOVE the brown dash, usually see them as all black, didnt know they did 2 tone, looks cool- i've always loved the wrap around 'cockpit' styling on the MK4 dash too. Looks like the interior is loaded with goodies too, nice head unit, carbon fibre steering wheel- are those gauges stock, they dont look it to me but I havent paid that much attention to ones I have seen. Regardless, cant wait for it to land, maybe I'll even come down later in the year and see it :D

    What's that little black box to the right of the head unit stuck on the side of the console?

    Nice one Lol!
    looks in great condition.
    Hope the shipping time goes fast for you.

    Thanks :D And that steering wheel ain't going anywhere. They cost 3 times more than any Nardi wheel to buy, plus I love the look of them. I'd rather keep it semi-factory looking too

    Thanks Ryzza :D I love the moonstone colour, I'll probably just respray it the same colour because it's easier. A colour change might be a few years down the track, dunno, we'll have to see. I plan on doing a full detail of the interior as soon as I get it, so it'll be 100% booger free.

    Project GetMyLicense is going well, although I got lazy again. Hopefully if I stop being so lazy I'll get it before or not long after taking delivery of the car. And I know what you mean about the P plater in a Supra...

    Lots of harassment from the :bacon:

    I love the brown dash too, it looks refreshing for a change, I haven't seen many with them :D It has all options except for the Recaro bucket seats, but I'll get them eventually. The gauges are stock, but another thing I'll be after soon is a full TRD gauge cluster. 320kmh speedo, 10k rpm tacho and the triple gauge cluster, they're getting hard to come by though.

    Sure, you can come down if you want. Otherwise I'll be heading up there around the end of Feb next year for Australia's biggest Supra cruise. Was gonna suggest to you would could go for a cruise around Mount Panorama :D


    And I actually have no idea about what that little box is... Maybe it's a radar detector? I dunno :hmmm: I'll shoot off an email and see if the guys know what it is

    --- Post Updated ---

    Thanks! It's in pretty decent condition, just the few little things I mentioned to fix up. I hope the shipping time goes fast too, It's only been 2 and a half weeks since I won the auction, but it feels like 2 months :p

    I'm probably wrong but it looks a bit like a minidisc player.

    I guess you could be right, that format never really took off here. Either you listened to cassettes or CDs and had the relevant adapter or retrofitted head unit if need be. Being Japan I'm surprised it hasn't already been removed. If it was a Ford/Holden I'd say it looked like it was a retrofitted box for switching between petrol and LPG (dual fuel).

    minidisc didn't take off anywhere...
    Maybe Lol could put up as poll/comp to guess what the mystery box is. Winner gets the car. :D

    That's a bloody sweet ride mate, love the brown dash :D That gear shift boot still looks better than the one in my Audi, guess your Supra wasn't owned by a dog-owner beforehand :lol:

    Also, I'm with Tim when it comes to the little box, definitely looks like a minidisc player imo :hmmm:

    Nice to see someone has got one of there Dream cars. :cool:

    I know you'll treat her well. :nods: Cant wait to see pictures of her in tip top condition!

    Thankyou, I have many fun times ahead of me :)

    Thanks. It does look awesome :D And yeah I've never really been a fan of those 'tear' style front floor mats. I might see if I can eventually find a set of the solid black Supra branded floor mats one day.

    Thanks man :D I've been getting a lot of mixed opinions about the dash colour, but most people love it. I reckon it goes good with the carbon fibre wheel too :nods:

    I've been tracking down some new gear shift and handbrake boots, found this online store called Redline Goods. I've heard lots of good stuff about their products on the Supraforums, so I'll probably end up getting new ones from them. If you wanna give them a look, here you go http://www.redlinegoods.com/AudiA39603shiftboot.php

    Yeah, now the only remaining cars on my 'dream' list are a 1969 Camaro ZL1, Zonda Cinque, Koeniggsegg CCXR and a Shelby Daytona Coupe. But none of those will ever happen :lol:

    Thanks, and I can't wait to see it looking 100% again either :D

    No worries :)

    And I just purchased my first modification. I was hoping I wouldn't jump into modification quite this fast, I won't even have the damn car for another 6 weeks lol, but oh well. Will post pics when it arrives.

    Congrats, mate! :hi5: Looks tidy for a Supra! It just needs a big detail in the interior and engine bay. I'd suggest you retrimming the worn out steering wheel, because it makes the interior much older than it is actuall mileage. Ad the dash, I like this one for example, looks way modern in my opinion.

    Slap some wide wheels and mild drop and call it a day. Oh, don't forget to get some huge turbos, cuz anything less than 800 HP sucks!!!!

    This is epic. Looks like it needs just a little work to get it looking new again.
