250 - 300 miles, say 4-6 hrs, break halfway, see below, cruise at 2000-2250 rpm, 70-85+mph, getting 30+mpg.
No aches or pains, that includes coming from the misses, although my eyes are knackered due to new glasses:lol:

3 hours road trip this past weekend with my 74 year old mother. She's had major spine surgery and my back isn't the best either but we were both super comfortable. Gotta say I was pleased for my Mother because I was definitely concerned about her back.

Now, her getting out of the car is another story ;)

Mighty long trip. How was it for you?
Not bad.
I don't recommend Louisiana roads with any car, let alone the Supra.
Other than that, the drive was great. Tanked up every 300 miles, not that it was empty by then, but around 3 gallons or so is my comfort zone in case there's gas station issues.

Too bumpy for the suspension? Yeah, it's better to keep enough fuel to keep you running just in cases there won't be any gas stations in the next few miles

600 miles. Went to horseshoe bend, and Grand Canyon north rim. Long stretches of empty desert highways and curvy roads through the forest right before we got to Grand Canyon. The Supra is such a good gt. Good fuel economy for the power it makes if I’m not going ham on it. So comfortable as well. Every time I see the sign “passing lane in 500 ft”, I’m like “if you insist 😏”.

Louisiana is just a rhythmic series of bumps the entire way. It's like each tile of road is not at the same height as the last one or next one. It's almost comical because driving through Texas is very smooth. You know exactly when you hit Louisiana roads.

Vegas to LA round trip to hit those legendary canyon roads. Supra handled the trip quite well and I can’t wait to get back out there!

How do you guys drive on dirt roads? My car would be spitting out rocks and gravel for miles with the sticky Super Sport tires.

The road to the left is paved and that’s where you drive. We pulled off for a photo shoot and I have ZL1 guards installed so no worry.

I'm definitely jealous of some of you guys living on the west coast / east coast. You guys have a lot of options for some beautiful scenic drives. Besides Chicago... if I drive a few hours in any direction, im just met with corn fields.

It's whats really been keeping me from taking any long drives with this car. My longest was probably 100 or so miles each way to Wisconsin.
Used to live in McHenry County. Man, I miss those long fields of corn haha. Some of the best back roads to open it up. West coast, has lots of traffic TO GET to scenic roads and there's lots of congestion in general. Oh yea and lots of police looking for fast cars and/or modifications.

It's jazzy so to speak. Speaking of jazz, did you ever made stops on music bars there?

I can't say I have. Most of the time I just drive straight through Louisiana.
I only ever stop there to visit some relatives...and eat some great food.

1800 Miles From Denver CO to Napa CA and back. When your just cruising, not in sport mode, the car gets ~33 MPG and that is with a pull or two in there to pass slowpokes.
