Good runs and beautiful car! I love the VR-4. It's been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.

aren't the VR4's a 4000lb car? I remember weight being the biggest drawback everyone had with them back in the day. Though I also remember how the car was overbuilt to handle huge power on purpose by the factory, kinda a Mitsubishi version of a Toyota Supra.

One of my favorite cars back in the day, would have had one of those over a C5 vette.

Cannot speak to the '05 C6, but when I dyno'd my bone stock right down to the paper filter '06 C6, this is what it put down.

Bet you REALLY miss it when you see the retarded *** prices they are going for now. It's insane...I'm talking $35-40k for basic, mild modded, 150k miles factory turbo cars. I've seen salvage title, non-factory turbo ("NA-T") rebuilds with 100k miles SELL for over $20k!?!?

Expect to pay damn near $50k for a well modded/restored one. If you wanna cry, take a look at this forum: http://www.supraforums.com/forum/for...ed-Supras-Only

Hell of a lot of money for what was originally a lower end version of the Toyota Soarer that you can get a low miles unmolested one imported and shipped to the US for $5-7k now .

Actually mine was a third gen that was pretty fast.

4th gen prices are crazy including n/as. I would never pay that much for any of them. Plus here in Florida if any of the Orlando scum or south Florida scum see it, they follow you around to try and steal it.

Yea I'm back in Orlando for a while and even the little SC gets more attention then I like. Listed it for sale and getting a TON of tire kickers.

Cool cars though, so are the VR4s!

Sorry to the OP for going OT, nice runs and sweet car
