Minty fresh MkIV Supras are now regularly selling for six figures, so it only makes sense that these cars will start to be sough out by automotive restorers and preservers. This isn't only Toyota's idea, either. This appears to be a growing and welcomed trend among manufacturers who want to support the huge followings these RADwood era sports cars command. Mazda just kicked off their own restoration service program last October and dropped an impressive 42-page catalogue full of new parts for the NA generation MX-5 Miata. Nissan started a Heritage Parts Program in 2017 building spare parts for R32 Skylines and hopes to expand their catalog too depending on how well the program succeeds.

Start small, build up...

If you're not quite ready for a full-on resto job, why not start with a slightly smaller Toyota? Like this 1:24 scale Supra model from Tamiya.
