well i have the chance to buy a 92 supra with 104k on it for 100 dollars, yes 100 dollars though work.

pros:

good body
good paint
new tires
no parts missing
car is in good shape cept for 1 thing

Cons:
automatic, though trans swap is easy
non turbo, still 200 hp stock is decent
arm rest is torn
driver seat bolster is busted
no spoiler
motor knocks really really bad to the point of where u can feel it

basicly if i do get this car (if one of the salesmen havent gotten it yet, im selling the celica for a motor, and other stuff the engine would need)

if i do get this car it will be a long term project, but mobile project

hard to say... sounds like it would need a ton of work to be back on the road

well the interior is fine cept for those 2 things

basicly if i just put an engine in it , it will be on the road. but if i do get anothor motor ill reseal, regasket it. drop it in and go.

engine change out would take maybe 2 days

oh and the lady can drive it so that way she has to insure it, and get tags for it meanwhile i can do stuff to it.

$100 sounds like a giveaway. What a great base car to start with though. Oh the possibilies. It's in FL as well?

200 hp for those heavy fuckers sucks although i do love those cars the na sucks and the turbo isnt even that fast. i raced a turbo in my celica and he was on stock boost. he did beat me but it took a while for him to pull away.

but they are great cars and i would love to have one as well!

also you do lots of engine shit by urself so i agree with you wanting to get it. u already have a reliable dd do it :)
