    if you're getting 10k, you have a LOT of options.

    well im not really looking to drop the whole 10k on a new car- which is why this is pulling me in its direction-

    i can buy a car ive wanted for a long time
    and save nearly 1/2 for other expenses such as my marriage later this year
    a little back up incase my morgage goes up with property taxes and all that it involves which sucks in my area cause it climbs to fast -

    Look around a little. This sounds like a total scam. Just remember, if it sounds too good to be true, someone would have bought it by now.

    i dunno my buddy bought a 97 tt for 20k with like 90k miles.
    a 94 n/a should be half that, maybe its just a really good deal. whats mileage on it?

    and i know you dont plan on staying n/a, but B is right. n/a supras are slow as shit, like stock civic slow.

    but hey if thats your dream car then go for it, just realize that modding it and maintenance on it will be 15x as expensive as whatever honda you had before.

    mileage is at 100k but said he had the tb change as well as some other things - clutch makes noise like the pilot or throw out bearing is going out- and needs some rear bushings cause rear "squeks"
    money isnt the option- i wouldnt mod for speed this time maybe some rims hre !

    defenitly sounds like a scam.

    have someone around that area actually go cheack it out.

    If its in the NYC area I'll do it for you.. I don't have 5500 so you don't have to worry about me taking it.

    Sounds like a scam to me.. Ask him what payment method he wants to go through, if its squaretrade or western union, something like that, you'll know for sure its a scam.

    Also keep in mind - if you got your Honda stolen, just think how fast this supra will get jacked.

    Hmm. Still, it sounds like a total scam.

    Have you checked autotrader?

    scam: I deal with a lot of lowriders, over 90% of the checks that come from Europe are fraudulent checks. The biggest scams in europe right now are checks... so imagine, once he said, I am in Europe, that killed the deal... sorry. But its most likely a scam.

    There are a bunch of supras over here for way less money. You could probably fly over here and drive it back even.

    This may not be a scam. If he's got it with a shipping company in NYC, that company is Sarizer automotive - And the owner IS a Supra guy :) (Like, he developed a suspension and bushing for the Supra and MR2)

    There are lots of funky things with Supra owners in NYC. There are two kinds you'll find: Complete hunks of junk or really really nice ones.

    I would check it out.
