    What's your favorite car other than the supra?

    I have to go with an early NSX with pop-up headlights. Something I have learned over the years is that fun cars can get very expensive to maintain if you want to drive them a long time. Although I could afford a brand new luxury car buying one faces either a future of expensive repair bills or...

    Dealer Video of a 1992 Teal MK3 with 12k Miles

    Did Toyota switch to the circle logo in '92? My '90 had a maroon rectangle on the front of which I was quite proud. It was nice that my logo was different.

    How hard is it to find a Mk III?

    Okay, so I have basically two situations. 1. Project car need an engine. The only real choices are 7M-GE or 1JZ-GTE because the A70 came with both from the factory so the 1JZ isn't a Frankensupra like a 2JZ or 1UZ from an SC400 would be. 2. Running car but has 150K+ miles on it. Now the...

    How hard is it to find a Mk III?

    This is one of the reasons I am open to a car with no engine. If a good mechanic is told "put a 1JZ or 1UZ in this" and can start with a rebuilt engine from the beginning I don't have to worry about constantly fixing stuff. The way I look at this is I can buy a newer used car that is not what I...

    How hard is it to find a Mk III?

    It's okay. These appear to show up often enough that another will come along soon. I would have taken that one though.

    How hard is it to find a Mk III?

    How is this going to be expensive? It is a 1990's era Toyota. If I get a NA with a standard there is no reason it isn't good for 200K miles with regular maintenance.

    How hard is it to find a Mk III?

    It is amusing when people take this view. My '90 was NA and I would be hard pressed to beat many cars off the line. I think it did 0-60 in about 7 seconds. My Volvo S70 sedan was faster than the Supra.

    How hard is it to find a Mk III?

    It looks like Autotempest has a few that would be acceptable. Looks like I'll start there when I am ready.

    How hard is it to find a Mk III?

    I saw that one, actually. That is a little more than I think is reasonable. Given that it isn't a Mk IV and is an automatic, not a stick, that kind of price should have under 50K miles imho.

    How hard is it to find a Mk III?

    I used to have a '90 Mk III and would like another MK III. Given the age of these cars its first stop after purchase will be a relative's auto repair shop for a thorough examination and repair/replacement of mechanical parts and interior work as needed. I can do an engine replacement if I find...

    Can I get a taller rear differential?

    I have a '90 NA Mk III I drive about 550 miles a week. I don't care about speed but I am starting to care more and more about the cost of putting gas in it. Is there a taller rear end available that will let me lower the cruising rpms?
