Your about right there mate yes!
The ZX, being modified too, was getting a little hairy scarey for the old man to cruise around in.
On high boost setting she'd hit nearly 2 bar and the rush can catch him out these days, so before he wrecked it we decided to sell it, and before he kills himself good and proper, the GSXR 1000K4 is also going!
so as a practical toy, we decided if we had a 147 GTA in the stable of cars, he'd be happy for as much as when he uses it, and i'd be more than happy!
so we now have a MY53 147 GTA which we're already setting about modifying! typical eh!
Matty, the supra's are lovely, but are certainly no better than the Big Zed's, i've done tem myself, but the weird thing has always been that the proper ones, i.e. twin turbo manuals, have consistently been twice the price of Zed's in the same spec, for no good reason in my opinion,
just demand for that style and shape i suspect?
anyway, enough about the Rice Burners for now, but they are excellent cars, and i almost wish i could have taken the Zed to cadwell on the 21st!
