Country Hills Toyota has a brand new 1990 Supra Turbo Targa Red on Grey Leather, 5-speed with 92km on the clock (NOT 92,000).

It still has all the plastic on the interior, steering wheel, shift knob, etc, etc.

They're asking something ridiculous like $50,000 for it, so I doubt many people will consider buying it, but yeah, sweet car.

Red too heh.

x2!

That's f'in amazing... Working at a dealership taking plasic out of brand new cars has always made me wonder what my car looked like when it was delivered... Holy shit that is amazing.
I really don't want anyone to buy that. I mean, I know cars are made for driving, but this is something else.

Empty shell of a car. It has no soul.

'the owner would give it one' , No the owner will do exactly what they are doing in that last pic... trailer it to it's final resting place.

Still a really nice car I guess.

I would imagine it would need quit a bit of a tune-up though, no? (gaskets and what have you... ?)

^ you said a 7m was 'perfect'

Actually, looking at the engine bay pic. Not impressed at all. I've seen mkII's with MUCH cleaner looking engine bays that have been driven for many miles. Everything just looks... dirty and just generally crappy...

Is that rust in the bottom right corner?

*edit No. 2*
No, I guess it's just where the subframe bushing thing sits.

Clean! But for $50k :aigo: , you could do a factory-like (or better) full restore, all new parts for a couple of Supras.

Assuming that in 1990, it was $28k. It would cost $45,573.02 to buy it in 2007.

Need to consider Canadian dollars. It was more than $28k.
Sorry, Jeff. I was also assuming US $. But you could figure out the Canadian price and inflation, eh? :icon_razz

Wow, even though that car has never been driven...it's WAY past it's expiration date...look how all of the rubber parts are coated with white powder. That car would need a lot of work to it's mechanicals to be road worthy...IMO of course.

I believe a lot of the stuff seen on the car is both dust and cosmoline/coatings from the factory. The car was not washed before being put in the showroom.

that one IC pipe near the fender looks pretty bad though...

still...

about all I'd do is take the wheels off and clean the dust and crap off the suspension... have it sit in it's own climate and humidity controlled room and occasionaly go stare at it...

I thought the 90 models had the cruise controls relocated to the stalk, Jeff. Was it different for Canadian models, or am I just off in my recollection?


PS- The car is perfect. Sometimes the rubber parts develop a white grit to the surface over time, but the rubber is still 100% good. Just need to wipe it down and it'll look good for another 18 years.

It was moved to a stalk on the steering wheel when airbags were introduced. 1990 for the USA, 1992 for Canada.
