One day, I hope to be as efficient/industrious as you (or at least as you plan to be ). Never really done anything with suspension or pulled/installed an engine before so I'm likely to take it real slow.

LOL oh I plan on this taking all damn day, and possibly having to drive one of the company trucks home that night if it's not done

Me, Moto-san & A70 (from Supra forum) pretty much stated next gen is a troll... BUT I'm hoping they get their sense back again and trash the current concept and start all new concept to get back to what 86 truly means before next yr summer.

Am I wishing too much?

Yes. If they are that far along they will not go back to the start and have anything by next summer. Just the logistics of ordering the parts and the retooling that would take place would take too long. Even with a completed plan it is getting close to where production could not possibly start by summer much less a vehicle be available for sale.

You don't have to grow tomatoes in the basement when you're going to the trouble of installing grow lights. There are more productive crops that grow very well in such prime conditions, crops that can supplement your pension.. you can easily make enough to say goodbye to your Twin and hello 488!

They were supposed to be an early maturing variety. Well, I do live in a forest of very large, tall trees - so, direct sunlight rarely reaches our place.

There is not really much money in it anymore since those, ummmmmm , herbal supplements, are legal here

Remember you are adding "value" when dealing with such stuff. Buying "herbal" supplements from a nondescript pharmacy ain't much fun... @humfrz can throw in extras such as:

1. A ride in his Twin
2. "Back in the day" story
3. Share nap time techniques
4. Chuck in some home grown tomatoes

The World is his oyster so to speak..

Tada-san did push back release of 86 twice. Once due to trans issue and wasn't satisfy with it, so had to push it 3wks (iirc). There was other time... but I forgot. I remember it's due to debate between Toyota & Subaru.

So who knows
