Are you aware that the car has a rather dubious history? It wasn't an aerotop originally
There's a couple of massive threads on here about your car

I think we can say with a degree of certainty that is is!!

Poor sod!!:rolleyes: Wonder how much he's paid for it??

Why don't people check up on these things before hand. We all know that I was about for ages before I made my purchase and it certainly didn't do me any harm!

well on the surface it looks like its worth a fair whack...I think he may have gone to tie him self up to the rafters :(

Poor guy, feel for him, not nice being ripped off. I guess it was a purchase from the heart...some people have no patience H, like me and him obviously lol :blink:

hi mate, welcome to the forum.

i'll let someone else fill you in, just bare in mind, we're all enthusiasts on here and are here to help......

Basically, the car was not bought by one of our traders as it had a really dodgy history in japan. Someone else bought it and then tried to say it was mint and it was proved otherwise with photo's/history/eyewitnesses and auction docs

The original seller in Japan was less than honest about it's history so Jurgen (importer) understandably walked away...

Don't panic :)

As others have said you'll need to become a member to read the thread, if this is the same car I really encourage you to do so. If you make the payment via "Paid subscriptions" in UserCp you will be able to read the thread right away. If you can't pay right away send me a PM and I'll give you access to have a read this evening.

If it's the same car then the issue is very serious and I do not think it should be used on the road. Its a show car only.

Nemisis have a rather less than perfect reputation in the Supra world, so be warned.

I DEFINITELY agree on this one. structural rigidity is in question - not something to be messing around with.

P.s. Hats off to Homer for being so accommodating.

It won't be a case of being able to 'fix it', you can't. The chassis is different

If its the same car, then go back to the company that sold it and get your money back. Unless you agreed it was a chop job its been mis-sold.

I really hope we are all talking about a different car mate for your sake. We are a friendly bunch and none of us likes to see a fellow owner (or anyone) get so blatently ripped off, especially when we are talking about large amounts of money. I'm also sorry that your first experience of the club may have been a negative one. If you need more info or any help, we have plenty of people who would be happy to do what they can to help you out.

Let us know how you get on.

If guy who sold you this car told in advert that it is BASED on TT Aerotop, he didn't tell truth, so I would say your deal is non existent as car is not sold as in specification.

Don't know if this helps but this is the original thread that will shed a bit of light on what happened. Would I be right in assuming that this car has been purchased from Street Candy then?

Is so, I take it that he didn't advertise his knowledge of the arguments that had taken place with regard to the lack of extra chassis strengthening?

Surely that in itself means that the car has been sold illegally as it is not fit for purpose?

Well Stu the car certainly looks stunning, lets hope the conversion was done well and the extra structual rigidity was added during the conversion and maybe it will be fine, just get it checked out...You certainly own a fine looking supra I can say that much for it!

I was thinking just that in the above quote .... Surely no idiot is going to cut the roof out of a car and not beef up the chassis structure ..... Would they ??

And hows it passed the SVA ?? or don't they go into this much detail ?

If the conversion was honestly done buy veilside surely they know what needed to be done to make this conversion possible .

Absolutely, I wasn't meaning that anyone had deliberately tried to make i crap for him, just a shame that what should have been a "how cool is my car" ended up being a kick in the balls for him.
