    Came across an article this weekend that confirms what I felt on the test ride... the Supra definitely has more HP than the 335 it's supposed to have. A dyno run confirmed that it actually puts out north of 370 stock. (376 hp / 390 lb-ft)

    https://www.motor1.com/news/363247/toyota-supra-ecu-tune-420-hp/

    Where things start to get exciting is that a simple remap bumps that figure to 420 hp, and 440 lb-ft of torque.

    There has been a few XJ13 replicas built over the years. It was an amazing car

    Mr PistonHead needs to brush up on his automotive history because the 5.3 Litres V12 (not 5.0) was scratch built... not two Straight 6 XK engine mated together

    This is my neighbour Zef on his road-legal jetbike. He's also got a 1000hp Porsche 911.

    This car was covered with 37 years of dirt and mold but still a testimony of quality...

    Makes me wonder how a modern SL will hold up over the next 37 years. Yesterday they were built to last. Today, they are built to feed the replacement part business. Programmed obsolescence?

    In other news: the not too popular "market price adjustment" by certain stealerships is causing folks at some automotive forums to veto these dealers. Nice to see forum communities coming together...

    The car started as total loss that was in garage fire, I used the complete drivetrain and suspension out of 2003 Mustang cobra terminator with a Eleanor body kit.....I wish boats parts were as cheap and easy to find as vintage mustang parts..

    The car was red with tan interior and need a lot of work , it’s one of 50 made in the Eightys and a few were used in the Movie “ Ferris Buelers Day Off” I made the car very vintage , it looks like a $20 million dollar example , but you can actually drive this car to the marina or the golf coarse with out a security force, I am considering selling it
