1986 Toyota Supra NON-turbo from North America
86.5 - Quick and Comfortable
The car ran hot for a year, but never overheated. The dealer couldn't determine the problem. Finally, a local mechanic determined it was the head gasket at 75,000 miles.
The stock Goodyear Gatorbacks are horrible in rain/snow. I recommend RIKEN tires on this car. They don't last forever, but are great if you use the car all year round.
The car is extremely comfortable on long trips. The driver seat has all kinds of lumbar supports.
The digital climate control is my favorite feature. Works just like a programmable home thermostat.
With the stock exhaust system, you can't even tell the car is on! A very quiet sports car at 200 hp.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with it being nice and quiet, I'm looking at purchasing this very car and when I heard it running and even driving around I really couldn't hear it barely at all, you could sneak up on somebody with this thing. It isn't quiet when you punch it though!

My name is Kevin, and I have an uncle that wants to purchase a 1986 Toyota Supra, and he wants me to work it off. I was kind of thinking of not doing it, but then I talked to my other uncle who knows about cars, and he told me to get it, and we will work on it in our new car modification garage/business. Your comments that I have read, make me want the car more. Thanks.

Well I bought the car (see second post) and I have a blown headgasket, but it has been a blast to drive (even though it wasn't running full potential) and everybody likes it. I was expecting the blown headgasket when I bought it so I'm not drawn back by it. Thankfully I like cars enough to do the fix myself and aside from machining the process should be relatively inexpensive compared to having a toyota dealer do it. watch for common signs of a blown head gasket and get it checked and replaced if need be when purchasing a supra; once that's done you'll have a great time!
