Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this poll :thumbs:

A survey of members cars was conducted in April 2004. This is hopefully going to be an annual survey so this data now forms the baseline for all future attempts to catalogue member's cars. A previous attempt in Nov 2003 was hampered by incorrect classification of the different models. Hopefully we got this one right!

The poll indicates that we have a total of 30 NA cars and 118 TT cars, making a grand total of 148 Supras. Quite impressive! However, when we consider how many Supras there are in the UK we've only got around 14% of all the owners. If there are around 1000 located in the UK (approx 650 UK cars sold and we're adding in 400 imports for good measure) that means there's still lots of people to be recruited. For the UK models we only have 4% of owners in the club!

The most popular variant is the RZ manual with 19 examples. The top six in order are...

1) RZ manual - 19
2) GZ auto - 16
3) UK auto - 15
4) RZ auto - 12
5) GZ Aerotop - 12
6) UK manual - 11

You want more number crunching? Okay, here we go:

J Spec cars outnumber UK cars by a factor of 5.5 to 1 (144 v 26)
Auto cars outnumber manual cars by 1.4 to 1 (81 to 58)
There's 4 TT cars for every NA car (118 to 30)
There's 4 pre-facelift cars to every facelifted car (115 to 29)

All these leave out our overseas friends as we were unable to record specific model info for these members due to forum limitations.

I'd say we have less than 14% as i think there's probably nearer 4,000 than 400 import supras......

BTW results could have been (doubt they were though) distorted by those of a mischeivious nature as you could vote in all the different thread catagories eg i voted for GZ aerotop AND SZ-R 6-speed.........maybe something to think about next spring?

Lumping all the RZ in together is a bit misleading too, because the pre-facelift RZ is the same as the facelift RZ-S. The facelift RZ was quite different, being the "racey" one, manual only, Recaro seats etc.

That really is a bit annoraky though isn't it? :innocent:

We split out the RZs, there's no lumping together...?

As for people voting for more than one car, yes obviously we're aware of that, but there's nothing we could do. The forum will only allow a certain number of voting options per post, so we had to group together like cars and split them across multiple threads. We prevented people voting for more than one car within the same thread, but there was no way we could stop people voting for one car in one thread and another car in another thread.

Yeah I know, I meant in the results summary posted up here. It's interesting stuff though. I'm suprised that there aren't more autos than 81 to 58!

I still don't understand! No matter.

Also remember that not everybody has entered their car into it.

There may be more owners than we have in the survey, but we probably have a fair few members who never bothered with it.

Sorry Dave, didn't mean to sound like I was putting down your efforts or anything! Like I said, it's interesting stuff, and you did a great job setting it all up :thumbs: I was just saying that the fact that Toyota changed the models round confuses things slightly...
