Ok, so, if I were an 82 or so Supra, in decent, not showroom, not complete rust bucket condition, running, and at a low price, where would I be? I'm looking to price something out so I can think of purchasing one sometime in the future. I need a car as my Honda is well, crashed, and my limo sucks way to much gas. Any ideas what I should do? Again, I'm not looking to buy right now, just looking at pricing out, checking out my options as far as something in or near Wisconsin. Thanks for your time.

Anywhere from $1-2k depending on the owner. There's a MINT '82 for sale here in Fla. that I'm gonna grab when I get my taxes back in Jan.
It's an '82 5 speed P-type, Terra Cotta, paint is 10 years old, but looks brand NEW. Wheels are MINT almost look chrome, louvers on the rear window, engine has 105k miles, was rebuilt at 90k, interior is deep maroon cloth, no dirt, no tears anywhere. The shift boot even looks like a month old. Double din CD player, the guy wants $2,500 for it, heh
This car has got to be worth around $5k, but he's got so much money, he doesn't really care on making a profit, he's also the original owner of the car...sigh...I wish January would hurry up!

Man, that sounds sweet. Aparently my friend knows of a guy who 'hates' his terra cotta 82. I'm gonna try to get that from him, but again, money is at a shortage. So, I'm hopin to win the lotto or something. Maybe I'll get a good paying job, and be able to afford it...

yeah I'm not to into the Terra Cotta color, but if I'm lucky enough to get it, I'll prolly paint her a nice blood red metallic to go w/ the nice dark red interior, here's to hoping for "new" cars! ;)

Black Supras are gorgeous, but I'm starting to rethink the whole black scheme w/ me not having a/c and living in Florida, bleccchhhhh
I like the blue color that changes in the light, and the light blue metallic and silver....so many colors...only 2 cars...hmmm

Yeah, black is a good color, until you get in the sun. I have a black limo that is my every day driver (can you see why I want a supra?). Good color, but even in Wisconsin it's hot hot hot. I'll drive any color Supra, because hey, it's a Supra. You know what I'm sayin?

I got my car for $1K. 85 P-Type 195K miles. Beautiful condition. Runs perfect, garaged its whole life, original owner, original silver paint (looks great). The clutch, the tires, the waterpump and the alternator were replaced within the last 10K miles. The car is perfect for a fast daily driver. It needs some interior TLC like shift boot, shift knob, upper dash panel and rear seat clips. But other than that, the interior is also flawless. Sunroof works, Pwindows work, cc doesn't but I don't mind. Best of all, the car has no rust whatsoever. The car smells a little like gas when I stop driving it so it needs 1 or more injectors, but I'm gonna wait to replace those when I do an engine rebuild (which I might not even do cause it's so nice already).
