I thought about a 2j in the sky, but my car was too nice to chop up. Plus the whole "its been done" thing. If I had some beat up NA sky, I would have put more thought into it for sure.
That being said, there were a few reasons to go with a supra mkiv.
1)The parts are all made and just need bought. No custom work required and replacements are always readily available....99% bolt on. (which means I can do the work myself.)
2)When complete, a high HP sky has next to zero market. A supra can be sold without a horrific loss as long as you are patient.
3) Its more rare than a kappa... only ~11k or so were imported to the US over the ten year production span
4) I am addicted to the sound of these cars
A big single supra is just very distinct.
In my area, they are ignorantly rare. In NE ohio you are more likely to see bigfoot riding a unicorn than a supra rolling down the road. I have only saw one at a car show in the past few years and it was all stock. I have met a few modded car owners, but they are very few and far between.
