Hey guys i gotta question for you. Today my step-mother told me about a cressida up the street from my fathers house. Its a 1988 red one with cloth interior, it is near mint. I didn't see any rust spots. I didn't check the mileage but it looks really clean, I think he is wanting 2,100 dollars for it, is that a good deal. Because i'm thinking of jumping on it so i can give my supra some rest. Don't really have the money and could spend it all on my supra, but to have a different daily driver car would be good.

please comment

LMAO. Hot Rodders famous last words...

1) "But Honey, I am only gonna build this with 300 HP to the wheels...."
2) "I promise Honey, This time my project WILL stay on budget..."
3) "I promise, I'll have this motor in and be cleaned up in time to go with you."

LMFAO!

Gera,

If you can, go ahead & jump on this. 1988 was the last year the MX Cressida's had the 5MGE. 89, they went to the next body style and 7MGE's for the next 3 years. And yes, THOSE 89 - 91 MX owners ALSO gripe about BHG's as well.

yep, Chris is right. 88s are a good years for those, they have the high comp 5m and they have the full independent rear (if its a sedan). What color is it? The only problem like Shawn says, is once you have one you quickly realize that its just a 4 door supra and you'll want to mod it too

i'll want to mod my supra before that, i haven't even modded my supra because i need a daily driver, the 84 is a parts car at its best and the 6m needs to be built up, the 85 is my daily driver/autocrosser so i need something else, unfortunatly, i don't know if i am going to get it, my stupid step mother is guilt trippin me saying that my dad needs the car because his 84 olds delta 88 is a pos, he don't even need a car because he only drives 5 ft to the store and back.........lol i want it i think i'm going to buy it from under their noses.....

I'm not griping. They make MX83 cars with blown motors very cheap on eBay. I picked up a beautiful '91 for $1225 with a blown head gasket. Fixed it and it runs fucking sweet.
