Jessica Barton recently replied back to some questions asked of her on SupraForums.com regarding if she’ll ever get back in the game of building another Supra after hers was recently stolen just 5 days ago.
According to Jessica, who goes by the name Supragrl93, in response overall how she felt,
“At this point I honestly don't know how. I can't put into words the amount of time we had invested in making that car perfect. There is so much to be done to build again, a lot of me to ask Darin (her boyfriend) to do. So many custom parts, hard parts to find, things I might have to wait a year or more til one pops up to buy. It's not easy to find a Supra either."
And most importantly she replied back by saying,
“I will get another supra, but what kind of build is questionable and I can guarantee it won't be as nice as this one.”
The facts stand. Jessica Barton is actively searching for the thieves who stole her 1994 Toyota Supra in which she invested over $150,000 dollars into as well as spent thousands of hours in wrenching and tuning in conjunction with her boyfriend and owner of Double D tuning, Darin Dichiara. Jalopnick uploaded a list of parts to look out for in the Florida area,
“Tilton clutch which they don't make anymore, Precision 88/91 only a few out there right now, Penske suspension that like no street supra runs, Stock modded intake manifold, very nice harness by Double D Tuning, and a good looking nitrous direct port set up.”
I have to applaud the decision on her part, that if by chance she doesn’t get any of her parts back from her previous build, that she has somewhat unofficially recommitted to build another Toyota Supra. Nevertheless, we look forward to justice being served to whomever the perpatrators where and look forward to Jessica Barton’s future build.
