We’re excited to introduce Stu Hagen as the next competitor in our Import Meet Street Car Competition. The IMSCC is an event that will compare 10 import cars in multiple categories (drag racing, autocross, dyno, car show, etc.) in August 2013.
A new competitor will be announced each week leading up to the competition so be sure to check back next week.
The Toyota Supra has been a dream car for many people since the first time they saw the original Fast and the Furious. During the summer of 2001, Stu Hagen reached a point in his life that he was ready to own a sports car. His son, being 16 and into import cars at the time, recommended that he test drive an RX-7, a 300ZX, an NSX, and a Supra. Stu test drove all of the cars but instantly fell in love with the ergonomics and feel of the Supra. Seeing the first Fast and the Furious sealed the deal and he purchased a nearly new 1997 Toyota Supra Turbo that August.
