Not sure i can justify the cost atm but what a sexy peice of machinery!
Am i missing something? A banged up old supra with an irish number plate?
well i like it....
holy huge image batman!
looks like a nice project though
Get one that isnt broken instead, that one looks like a right nail.
A fully working one is worth less than 2 grand, with MOT and tax.
200 vs 2k? if i had 2grand maybe i would i wanna pick up a car for 1-200 and fix it up
Soon as a i saw it was an old 3l supra i knew it'd have a blown headgasket. Leave well alone. Apparently these are an absolute money pit once the HG has gone.
Mate, there's 1000's of these around. Worth not much at all, even in GWO. Hell, you can get an NA one with tax and test, in reasonable condition for around 800 quid.
My dad has had a 1992 turbo version of one of these for about 2.5 - 3 years now and unfortunately HG failures are common.
His went 4 days after purchase and he managed to get the place that sold it to him to pay for it and give him a 6 months warranty on the car if i remember correct, final bill was around £800 as it needed head work.
If you want one of these i'd at least try to find a manual turbo one, with no blown head gasket or corrosion.
As Jez says, broken ones are money pits, and you can probably find plenty of not broken ones out there at quite nice prices with aircon, heated/elecrtic seats & mirrors, cruise control and the other common stuff.
Quite cheap to buy, expensive pain in the arse to fix, buy a good one or dont bother i say.
Dads car -
Get a s13 or s14a 200SX if you want a project car. You'll thank me...
Where do you get an s14a for £200 if you dont mind me asking?
what he said ^^^^
Excuse the ignorance but what are s13's and s14a's? sound like inland revenue forms, 200sx's are spensive no?
Theyre the different models of 200sx variants.
the old supras are still nice, plenty of nice ones around for less than you will payout overall for that one ;]
Well as US muscle cars are out of my price band these jap puppies are looking promising. Insurance quote for next year comes in at about 1200 on a 200sx which isnt bad since im 22.
Havent quoted a supra yet....
This looks interesting, bit more than i wanna shell out on a damaged one but sexy linky
See thats actually quite nice The newer shape is lovely.
at category D it should be within the realms of fixability for me but then with 60k on the clock someone will go to 2k for it i reckon, heck i would if i had the cash
Its sorely tempting, i really really like the supra and that damage looks very very easy to fix
