    Just a random question, might sound a little dumb.

    But has anyone here tried doing a search online for those plates?
    Almost like a ''registration check'' on the Californian DOT website or something.

    Only reason I ask, is because here in Aust, we can search our registrations online and it comes up with Vin#, vehicle make/model and expiry.

    Thought it would be interesting if you could search these plates and see if any info comes up.

    There has been tons of high resolution photos that show the outline of the quarter panel window.

    Plus it's a part of the fake panels that go over the rear hips.

    I wish it was a GT car and have the same proportions as previous supras but it is very small and compact i think.

    The B pillar on the Supra looks about as big as the 370's

    right and who is calling the 370Z a GT?..cannot be a GT without +2 seats IMO. It is shorter and wider than a 86

    Personally I like small cars, lightweight with engines that make them go fast. I had 2 Nissan 300zx twin turbos (sold when the kids came) but
    loved them, 2 seater no back seat, lots
    of fun..(that design today still looks fresh to me) Anyway that is the setup I am hoping for in the new supra...with modern technology...

    Seems like the right desription as long as not too much on the luxury side, sacrificing feel and being nible, think ex. BMW M2, enough create conforts but not loaded down with bunch of stuff we dont need...
