After we found out about a Supra meet that will be held after our very own ///M meet, I(Brian) decided to stay for the Supra meet as well. So, on 27 February 2016, there was two gatherings being held at The Garage KL. When all of the Supras arrived and parked up, I have discovered that the reason for this meet because was Stuart Hagen is in Malaysia as he is onboard an asian cruise trip with his wife, Joy.
Let that sink in for a moment. With no expectations of this, I was in awe as I am meeting one of the most respected Supra OG owner in the US community. If you trawl around supraforums.com, you will be familiar with the username “Stu Hagen”. Yes, that Stu Hagen who happens to be the pioneer of the stock twin turbo hybrid conversion with machined GT28 CHRA, gauge clusters and A/C control LED lighting conversion as well as some custom gauge cluster faces. He offered this service to the Supra community himself(LED/gauge cluster) or via a 3rd party vendor(speedforsale.com) for the hybrid twin turbo conversion. His latest Supra is a very clean USDM unicorn too, being a 98 Quicksilver hardtop which was converted to a 6-speed manual twin turbo car as the hardtop could only be had in NA form for 1998 in the US market. Not just your typical conversion but a very thorough conversion that even includes a targa top chassis brace bolted in, all little details taken care of.
With such an experienced Supra owner, all the local Supra owners were more than glad to meet him and have dinner with him. A total of 9 Supras and 1 SC300/Soarer turned up for the meet. The meeting ended by 9pm as Stu and Joy had to return on their cruise.
