    Got the wheels back from refinishing. Lips were re-polished, the faces were done in gunmetal, and I got new work stickers in chrome which were cleared over. I’m really happy with the near perfect match to the emblem and tail lights.

    Never seen a Supra without a bigass wing on it, but I must say, I like it a lot!

    I guess I forgot to share here but I got some sideways seat time a few months ago! I don't plan on drifting the car regularly but it was a lot of fun and I enjoyed getting more confident behind the wheel.



    Time for new rubber last weekend! Square Falken RT615K+

    Untitled

    Discovered this while changing tires, I have no idea how I didn't notice before!

    Thankfully the local rim repair shop was able to get it fixed same day!

    Although I went wit the same size, it began rubbing in the rear. My fenders are already rolled and pulling isn't really an option but I was able to do a little massaging which helped a bit. Currently the car has about 1/2" of reverse rake so I will raise the back up to where the front currently is in hopes that it helps. I have a cruise with some buddies slotted for this weekend and it should involve some nice windy roads so hopefully the slight raising will be enough to make the drive enjoyable without too much rubbing.

    The Falkens made their maiden voyage on a fun spirited driving cruise I set up with some good friends. It ended up being about 3 hours of solid driving including a little bit of highway, and a lot of windy back roads. The tires did great and were very confidence inspiring.

    Our initial meet up spot was Cars & Coffee where someone snagged this rad interior pic.

    Here's our route.

    Untitled

    We had a pretty diverse lineup cruising. In addition to my car we had a c3 vette, 2nd gen Viper, 350z, CTS-V, Cayman, and a 5th gen viper (not pictured.)

    Untitled

    This beautiful 930 Turbo Cabriolet wasn't part of our cruising group, but we happened to stumble upon it as we rolled into the biker diner/bar that we had lunch at along the route.

    Untitled

    The guy in the red Viper managed to get a few good rollers while taming his beast.

    Being the lead car has its drawbacks, Texas sized bugs LOL

    Untitled

    In other news, the wifey's 4Runner got a set of Falkens as well! We went to a 285/70R17 (close to a 33) which required a lift. This was accomplished with Bilstein 5100s all around, with 2.5" of lift in the front from the adjustable spring perch and 1.5" of lift in the rear from a daystar spacer. Very pleased with the ride, noise level, and most importantly look of the setup.

    Also, we're building a house! The lot is in a flood plain which with Houston's past with floods, is taken very seriously. Because of this, the house was elevated roughly 6 ft. above the natural grade. In order to minimize the difference in roof heights the garage walls were taken up to 12 ft! I know what you're thinking.....Supra + Flood Risk??? I will be acquiring a 4 post lift for permanent elevated Supra parking. The model I'm looking at has 72" of lift so I think staying 6 feet above the garage floor should keep the Supra safe. This will also provide an additional garaged parking spot under the Supra. Hopefully we will be moving in next February so we're super excited!

    awesome read! and the house is going to be incredible by the looks of that frame!

    should definitely keep garage updates on this thread of how the build is coming along.

    I will be in Houston in 2 weeks from the 28th October til 8th/9th November. If there is anything going on that you can recommend i come see (meets or car related stuff) or if there are any places you think i should check out whether it be food or non touristy bits.

    Houston Coffee and Cars (the official C&C event for Houston) is a pretty big deal here and it is a great event for someone looking to get a taste of the diverse car culture in Houston. I will probably be there with my family. It should be the following day/time/location.

    Saturday Nov. 2nd starting at 8AM, usually dies down between 10AM-11AM.
    Memorial City Mall
    303 Memorial City
    Houston, Texas 77024

    There's also Towne Lake Cars & Coffee: Cars on the Lake the following weekend at another location. It is not as big as the one at Memorial City Mall but still a nice location with quality cars. Most of the cars are gone by 10:30AM though so if you want to see everything you have to get there early.


    Saturday Nov. 9th starting at 8AM-10AM
    The Boardwalk: Towne Lake
    9945 Barker Cypress Rd
    Cypress, Texas 77433

    There's also a few dope rides usually at Catalina Coffee on Sunday mornings. Its always a surprise as to what will be there but its usually some nice JDM legends.
    2201 Washington Ave, Houston, TX 77007

    There's good food all around the city so I would just suggest searching whatever type of food you like in your area and going off reviews. The more "hole in the wall" the place looks, the better it usually will be.

    Hit me up on IG @EricT93_Supra if you have any questions.
