History
Ah the history of my 3S ventures. Back in 2006 I bought a 1992 VR-4 with 52k original miles. 4 hrs later I spun the rod bearing. I was broke. My friend and I spent the next 6 months rebuilding the motor back to stock cause thats all I could afford. I started the car up and she purred real nice for less than an hr before it overheated. whatever company I bought the head gaskets from sold me N/A headgaskets. I was devistated again. Spent a month pulling the heads and fixing it again. Started her up and put 200 miles on it, but I just couldnt trust the car. I ended up selling it a week later.

Flash forward 3 years. I was in the market for a sports car again and I wanted a supra I thought. As I was searching for cars I stumbled upon my the 99 VR-4 in mint mint condition. Only problem was that it was in Chicago and I was in FL. Hell I said, here we go again. Flew up to Chicago, got a fresh oil change and new tires and drove her problem free back down to FL. Since then I've only replaced the TPS sensor and starter. Currently I'm at 148k miles so I dont really get on the pedal that often cause I dont have the cash for a rebuild yet in case something goes. I'm working towards aquiring parts for the day I tear her apart to make her new again.
