Judging by your description, the drive train isn't really there. How is the body?

body is spectacular....only thing i see is a very smal dent on the right front fender... but the trans is perfect, i replaced the clutch right before i stopped driving it.... all it really needs it new taillights, pass. windows, cams, and it to be put back together....

now you know not to thread crap, you seem to still be posting the same non-helpfull replys, this does not reflect good on you as a member.


just some words of advise.

now toy_celi, post up on cr more than you think you can get and go from there.

example, you set price at 900, although you are happy getting 500, someone offers you 700, you take it, now you have came out 200 more than you would have settled for.



you can tell ive sold lots of stuff :hehe:

Like I said in the other thread, put it up for what you think it is worth and then if someone offers you something then either take it or wait for something better.

If you want a number then $500.

there's only one way to find out. make a thread on the for sale forum and see what happens.

to be honest it will be hard to get 800, cause it does need a good amount of money to run as in, body panels,windows, motor, paint etc..... it will ad up quick, its better off being a parts car for 300-500. if it was a full body with decent paint you can get 800-1000 for a donor car for a 3sgte.

Well the paint is primer... it doesnt matter the color, nobody still has stock paint except those guys who are going for the sleeper look... either way whoever buys it is gonna sand and paint it.. we will see, im gonna make some shit in for sale areas....

people like you are TRUE car people.... you take any car that needs help because you see what it CAN be not what it IS......

that is what I tend to do, I dont need the highest of quality nor am I willing to pay for it. I'm the type that likes to tear in to it and build it back up, and payin say $5000 for a car with virtually no issues just feels pointless if Im going to tear it down and build it up my way anyway.

Toy_Celi, i dont have a celica, im just saying it is 1000 times easier to sell it with pictures available.

Oh and about the miles i was talking about Joe's 3rd gen, i should have clarified.

And Ohio and Arizona are not very close toy_celi. And Springfield, IL means Illinois.
