Hi all

After rolling my beloved 85 back on Jan 28 I've been in search of another supra. I've got a butload of parts most notable a ported and polished 6m with a fresh valve job which I'm already into for close to $2K not to mention addcos front and rear, LJM front tower RC intake and $2k stereo (was in a custom amp rack which didn't survive but the amp did)

If anyone could help my find a supra with a blown motor and straight body/good int. I would be willing to pay a finders fee.

Thanks for the help

Best regards
Will

Is it me or is it impossible to find a clean supra these days?

Will,

There is an 84 MKII that may be available the first of next week here in Albuquerque. It is dark blue with a blue interior. I have seen the car but not up close. It appears to be very nice, certainly is from the outside. I have no idea what the JY will want for it. The owner said it was totalled because the engine was blown on it. A friend of his was supposed to be wanting it but He wasn't sure. He said to give him 10 days and then call and check. I'll be glad to check and see if it is still available next week if you would like. LMK. I can put you in touch with the guy who owns the yard and you can work your own deal if you would like.

WIERD :shock: I wreaked my 83 two years ago on Jan 30

I hope you find a nice clean mk2 soon. There are alot of mk2s over here in the Southern Cali area for around $1-2K, try Autotrader.com

Yeah, the Oregon Mk II market seemed to die about 1-1.5 years ago (just a little after I got mine). The ones that are for sale around here are usually trashed, rusted, and not running. What used to be Mk IIs at lots seems to have gone over the Mk IIIs (fun to testdrive :wink: , but I don't want one)

Thank alot guys.

I have looked in autrader pretty much every day for the last few weeks and have gone to take a look at everything within 100mi. Idealy I would find a MKII in perfect shape with a bad motor. I've just got to much into the 6m to not get another supra (that and I can't imanging finding anything in my price range that i would rather have).

One of the big problems of going out of state is that after looking a a bunch (like a dosen) of supras I'm afraid to make a trip only to find the car unsutiable.

Leslie please let me know whats up with the car and if you could get me in touch with the owner that would be great (pix would be super) thanks much.

dogstar that would be great I appriciate the help.

Sparky you are so right most of the supras I've seen have just too much rust for me to want to deal with.

Thanks Zankone I'll keep my eye open. If you find another great deal like you did for your cars please let me know.

Again thanks all

Best regards

Will

TomD has a line on a very nice rust-free '85 for $1000. He offered it up on the Yahoo List. I believe it was white. Anywan, Tom has been hanging around Celicas/Supras since before some of you were probably born. He highly recommends this car. It is located in North Carolina, I believe.
