The MkII Toyota Supra never received the affection garnered by its younger siblings, but it set the standard for future coupes and is still beloved in certain circles.

Power came from either a 2- or 2.8-liter inline six that produced anywhere between 145 and 161 HP and was channeled through a five-speed gearbox. Weighing in at just over 3,000 pounds, it was a quick ride for its time and proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable whip for both this writer and Flickr member longbowmkii.

There seem to be fewer and fewer of these on the road in decent shape, so we thought this particular example deserved a spot in this week's RR of the Day, 80s edition. We're even more enthused that Mr. Longbow has gotten his MkII out to a local autocross to see if it can still hang in the gymkhana world.

We're still on the prowl for more rides of the 80s, so tease your hair out, throw on that zipper laden leather jacket and submit your photos to our Flickr account by following the directions after the jump.

How to submit to RR of the Day:
Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. Search for and join the group called 'Autoblog RR of the Day'. Upload up to three photos of your ride to your own account at a size no larger than 450 pixels wide if possible and include as much information about it and yourself as possible. Even if your ride is sweet, it will not be chosen if there's not a lot of info accompanying it. Click on each photo and just above the picture it will say "Send to group". Click that and select the Autoblog group. You're done, that's it!

      I had an '84 Supra that was wrecked; just found another in pretty good shape - only one rust spot, and NO rust on the back hatch. How much should I plan to give for this beauty (only has 79,300 miles)?

      Between this and yesterday's 6-Series, this week's RRs have read like a "greatest hits of the '80s" list, at least stylistically. These Supras still catch my eye.

      Add a despoilered, well-taken-care-of C4 'Vette, Camaro, and 5.0 LX Mustang, and and you've got some of the best-aging cars of that decade.

      these have always been a favorite of mine, and I think a very underrated design.

      Just too bad it's hard to find one that's not badly dented up or rusty...

      A friend in High School had one of these. We took to Daytona Heach after graduation and cruised the beach everyday. Good memories!

      Meh. To each his own. In the right color, in the right condition, and with no modifications, I find all of them attractive.

      I've always loved the Supra! No disrespect to this owners car, but I wish this was the model with the wing spoiler on the roof, the fat Dunlap tires and GTS rims. That model was a show stopper and it definently would be in the top five(styling) of the 80's cars.

      I knew a kid back in High School with one of these, it was black, someone else at that school had a red one too. Those were the first Supras I had ever laid eyes on, and then I saw a 4th Gen Supra, all Black at my college (unfortunately drivin by a teacher, who smoked...), it is by far one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen before.

      great ride. had a matchbox version that was my favorite "carry car" .
      glad to see you take good care of it.

      PJ, that's not saying much. Those cars look terrible today. The Mustang looks like a crap wagon, the C4 Vette was the least interesting of them all, the Ferraris were as flat as Paris Hilton, and the Jap coupes were rip-offs of the Porsche 944--which hasn't aged well, either.
