Bryan Cortez was looking to get into drifting when he purchased the 1989 Toyota Supra. “At the time I was looking for a rear-wheel drive car for me to get into drifting,” he recalls “I didn't want a 240SX because that's what everyone else was driving and I wanted to be different.” The Supra has since become more of a hybrid race/show car, with dozens of modifications and two award titles of ‘Best Overall MK3 Supra’ and ‘Best Exterior Modified MK3 Supra.’
