Would you keep or sell this car?
A man from Dublin, Ireland shared his amazing story of stumbling on a Toyota Supra barn find in 1993. In contrast to other so-called "barn-finding cars", this one is covered with dust in the photos, including under the hood, so that it does not look like a staged photo op. The fact that such a valuable vehicle remained standing for 11 years is almost unthinkable for many enthusiasts, especially those who love Japanese sports cars of the 90s. So the story is pretty compelling.

According to the man who posted this story on the Driftworks forum, he is a truck driver and stumbled upon the Mk IV Supra while making deliveries for work. In other words, he wasn't looking for cool cars hidden on lots, he was just in the right place at the right time.
After recording a conversation with the owner about the Toyota, he learned how it stood for 11 years without being touched. At first he wasn't sure about the vehicle as he says he is a Nissan Skyline guy, but after a while he realized it had potential, especially after staying overnight parts from Japan and asked the Owner how much he wanted it.
It sounds like the negotiations were short, which is lovely since some people with a barn-looking car have such a strong emotional connection with the vehicle that they didn't care. It takes months or years for them to finally reach an agreement.

From the photos and description of the 1993 Supra, it appears that it is probably bone material. The new owner won't keep it that way, a move that will prove controversial, at least for some people. He wants to lower the suspension, put on a “subtle” front lip, upgrade the 16-inch wheels for OE 17-inch wheels and attach spacers for all 4 wheels. Honestly, this isn't all that wild, but some people think classics - and this could be considered classics these days - should be kept and not modified at all.
