Not mine to buy or sell... just similar to what's in my garage (minus about 100,000 miles).
It's always interesting to see what the free market has to say.

ah ok, I was kind of sad, but didn't want to downplay the auction thinking it was yours. I bet it might end up around $5K since it's in great condition. The chrome wrapped and questionable condition vert sold for $4K on ebay not too long ago.

The same day BaT also posted an auction for one of our long-nosed I6 friends, and I’m curious to see where the 2 auctions end up relative to each other...though the Supra is probably too rusted in the rockets to get good money:

I seem to remember the forum-goers going gaga over this old Toyota model as well (genuine JDM so RHD but this one only made it across the ocean to Hawaii, unfortunately):

Man, that corona's in the perfect condition - exterior looks great, interior is ready for an overhaul, and plenty of room for a JZ under the hood.

I saw that Supra too... is it just me or did someone try to put expanding insulating foam into the rusted out cavities on the rockers?

The last person my grandmother had fix the rocker panels on my '90 Civic did the same thing. BTW, don't EVER do it, it holds moisture between the foam and the panel, and just makes everything rust out very quickly and much worse.

Dang, that 'vert got allll the money, highest price for a RA6x I've seen (don't know if the black coupe $12k CL ad in LA ever actually sold the car).

Supra got the rebuilder's cost.

Nice looks like the vert is worth more than I thought :biggrin: Still a bargain really.
