^^ Dayyyyuuuummmmm....

I love these things. Miata killers.

Always been a dream of mine to get one and boost the hell out of it.
Get a hard top, they look sick on them.

02-22-2008, 12:05 AM
hell if i find a cheap hardtop i would love to.....

02-22-2008, 12:08 AM
thats not bad at all though would be nice if you had center caps. Which celica are you ridding of?

02-22-2008, 12:11 AM
lucky you... don't you have to have a certain license in order to buy cars at an auction? if so, how might i obtain one :wiggle:

02-22-2008, 12:11 AM
its like $50 for a year to visit the auction, but can be VERY worth it

02-22-2008, 12:12 AM
not for the police auction, its open to the public, they had last week a 01 vette for 6500 and a 1997 celica hit in the front so sold for 300 dollars.....

02-22-2008, 12:13 AM
I need to find out where our police auctions are...I just know of one auto auction an hour from here where you do have to pay for a membership

02-22-2008, 12:14 AM

02-22-2008, 12:17 AM

02-22-2008, 12:24 AM

02-22-2008, 12:25 AM

02-22-2008, 12:57 AM

I could never own one, but looks good, especially for the price.

02-22-2008, 02:30 AM

hehehe i was not a big fan either until few years back drove my friends and i loved it....and yes its got a great new home :)

02-22-2008, 04:16 AM
i dont know, i just never really did like em. i mean you got yours for a absolutely great price and its in good shape, i just never liked the front end to be honest. the placement of the engine is better in this mr2 than the two previous generations with the engine facing u as u look at the rear. i dunno, it just doesnt add up to the sw20

02-22-2008, 05:48 AM
Dude, thats awesome! I have a poster of one at home...yellow and everything, I think one of those would be a blast!

02-22-2008, 05:54 AM

I want to go to a police auction

02-22-2008, 08:23 AM
ive never been to one either. i think id be pretty scared though. id try to find out the cars history somehow. do they tell u if someone got shot in it or something?

02-22-2008, 09:38 AM
I believe that would be confidential, but I may be wrong

02-22-2008, 05:41 PM
the car was trying to get stolen....they took it and impounded it...nobody claimed it over 30 days so they sell it right away....i got a clean title with it since it was not a damaged car.....they also u.s marshall police auction which DRUG SIEZED CARS!!! mostly new cars they had a 02 jetta gli(preformance model, factory lip kit,turbo,18 inch factory rims.etc..) for 3500. and a 07 impala ss with 12,xxx for 11,ooo

02-22-2008, 05:45 PM
