Brittany Hinz: 1993 Toyota Supra

Brittany Hinz  chose the 1993 Toyota Supra for many reasons. Surprisingly, seeing the car in a few "Fast and Furious" movies did not influence her decision, as it does for many. Though, with that being said, Hinz did want an iconic car that was able to hold its value and at the same time, a car that she could keep for as long as possible - a lifetime - if you will. With Supras, Hinz has noticed through the years of looking for the right one, that it only went up in value and became more sought after and harder to find as the years went by. It actually all started with a simple test drive in a 5-speed non-turbo (2JZ-GE w/ w58) around the outskirts of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. After ripping around a little bit, Hinz just fell in love with the spaceship-like design of the interior (wrapped around the driver), how smooth the transmission shifted, how reliable and easy to maintain it was, and how much power it could put down even just stock from factory.

Since purchase, Hinz mainly spent most of her time with repairs as it needed some TLC after previous ownerships, as well as maintaining it and a few modifications here and there when she could. She may not be on the same page as most tuner cars, "not saying it's a competition," states Hinz, but it's just a matter of time and money. She'll get there, eventually. We all have different budgets, different jobs and/or different situations that influence our purchases.

Hinz bought the Supra to hopefully be a life-long project. "I wanted something to occupy my time, something to work towards, and it sure did not fail to do so," mentions Hinz. "It has been a journey with this thing; I'm always learning new things with the help of family, friends, and not to mention, the late nights staying up with the help of the internet."

It's amazing how a car, or a group of cars can just bring people together the way it [Supra] does. Hinz will never regret the time or money spent on the RZ because she's met, and continues to meet, so many great, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable people. "It really is a great community and industry to be involved with," ends Hinz.

This is just the beginning. We all have to start somewhere. This is her kick-off!
