    I'm one of the guys looking for my first Supra. I was so confused about the market. These past few posts have really helped me understand what's happening.

    Thank you all so much!

    Ok so here is my take on this. If you ask a friend how much he paid for his home he'll tell you that he paid more than he really did. When buying a car he'll tell you that he paid less than what he really paid for the car. Think about he's trying to impress you on how expensive his home is and that he can afford it and he's such a great negotiator that he got such a great deal on his car.....everyone has a line of BS when it comes to these purchases.

    You just have to do your home work and be ready to pull the trigger when a good opportunity presents itself. Jump in and don't wait for the big discount bragging deal that your friend of heard about, chances are he may have paid full price just trying to impress you with what a great deal he got. Remember, all the deals your friends or family told you your crazy to spend that much money on a car. I bet those decision for not buying that ride you wish you didn't listen to them back then and you missed the deal. I know I have stories like this just buy what you want the market will catch up and you'll be happier in the long run.

    Okay, maybe I need to clarify. I definitely appreciate this thread, because it is the goal of it to find the deals and let our community know. My original rant was based on what the market is, not the "deal market" is. There will always be overpriced anythings in any market, but the majority listed supras are $5-$10k higher than 2017 and 2018. And yet, spin through this thread over 2 years ago and nobody believed a low miles TT should be in the $40s. I trust the judgement of the group, but can we agree almost any Supra has increased in price 10% or so in the last 18 months. Finding a deal is in our blood, but the market has once again gone up. Those who wait for the deal, will sacrifice a portion of their parameters ultimately.

It didn't sell. So of course, as protocol demands, it was re-posted on Craigslist for mid 50s "with a paint job." Last I checked, still sitting around.

    I can see how the market can be very confusing to someone just looking to get into a mkiv for the first time.
    Scum of the Earth right there lol. The one you're talking about is probably the number 1 offender, it's pretty hilarious.

    There are plenty of them on here, every time I see them post I just laugh because literally EVERYTHING they post is overpriced and usually never sells, when I see for sale threads started by said users, I have to go look at how much of a joke their post is.

    I don't care for the flippers any more than anyone else, but calling someone 'scum of the earth' for it is harsh, even by my standards.

    Heh, that was pretty lightly put IMO.

    I mean, humor me, is there another "group" of people in the Supra community who you would consider "worse" than flippers/scalpers? I'd say no, they are definitely the lowest common denominator.

    Thieves? Scammers? Liars? Two-faced shitbirds that happily let you help them out when they need it, but never return the favor when you need it? How about the whiny peanut gallery that likes to bitch about prices and the cost of events but contribute absolutely fucking nothing of value to community as a whole?

    Seeing as how about 60% of my paycheck actually gets to my bank account because I've restrained my motherfucking genitals, Obamacare made my health insurance costs 5x more expensive, and I don't make enough money to play all the games to hide my income from the man - I have no beef at all with anyone that has a chance to make some side money here and there.
    The guys trying to make $10k on a flip sit on those cars forever for a reason and who gives a fuck. Don't like the price? Don't fucking buy it.
    Don't like people buying and selling shit to make money when they can? Better stop frequenting any type of businesses at all that take money and just join a fucking hippie commune in the mountains or some shit. People need to make a living and on a car forum that celebrates 1000whp street cars I shouldn't have to explain that it's fucking 100% okay to jump on opportunities that help you live comfortably and do better in life than just barely getting by.


    Edit:

    The high prices of MK4's are a good thing. If you want businesses to keep developing new parts, develop replacement parts, and otherwise support the vehicles, those cars need to be connected to a demographic that has disposable income to buy that shit. The MK4 has a very accessible strata now with RHD imports and if you keep an eye out it's not hard to find decent examples for sale around $20k.
    Believe me, I don't make the kind of money where I have $20k just chillin and waiting for my next car project so I get it the frustration. But it's not difficult to finance it and make it happen if that's what you really want to happen.


    Another damn edit:

    The only fundamental problem with flippers right now is that they're competing with each other and raising the prices somewhat artificially, and the lower end NA's tend to be the hardest hit by this. But given another 2 years of JDM imports we'll see prices trend downward on the RHD NA Autos and that kind of thing, so we'll have plenty of good cars to build at a lower price.

    TL: DR

    Your first 4 words definitely describe the majority of flippers and scalpers so you're just furthering my point, they are generally one in the same.

    Also, what have flippers and scalpers contribute to the community? Absolutely fucking nothing lol.

    Supra's having a high cost has little to nothing to do with businesses developing parts, not really sure why you think a car being valuable has anything to do with parts demand, companies develop parts when there is money to be made, which happens when there are people buying and building cars, which would happen more often if the prices were lower, not higher, not to mention the rarer they get, the less people will mod them, so, I'm just going to go ahead and agree to disagree on your stance on a 30K NA car doing absolutely anything for parts development.

    Last point, "somewhat" artificially? How about, completely artificially.

    Either way, we can agree to disagree. We'll see what the future holds!

    Buying a car at one price and selling it at another does not make you a thief, scammer, or liar. When Toyota made the MKIV, the didn't sell it for what they had in it. They sold it for a profit. Just my two cents worth.

    So buying something with the intent to sell for a profit is the same as stealing? Are you fucking serious? Stop huffing paint for a second and honestly mull that one over. You are suggesting that someone beating you to the punch on a $17k NA auto and you see it on ebay for $22,500 two weeks later with new tires and a detail job is the SAME FUCKING THING as someone STEALING something that belongs to you.

    Also, it's not a 'stance' it's a nice solid 20 fucking years of seeing car shit happening like this. See any badass top shelf parts made these days for C4 Corvettes? 7M-GTE Supras? S13's? No? That's because businesses that develop top shelf $2000 parts for $4000 cars go out of fucking business. Most people with $4k for a project car don't have another $4k or $10k to dump in it. Simple fact of life. People with $30k for a project car/fun car, on the other hand, DO tend to have substantially more disposable income for things like nice parts.

    Most -not all- but MOST people buying and selling MK4's right now have been in the MK4 game for a minute and their experience and scrutiny generally benefits their customers, so there's some value in that markup. They also have the vested interest of being in the Supra world so people will know who they are so they aren't out to fuck anyone, either, lest it haunt them.

    The random douchebags with $25k and no idea WTF a Supra is only that they sell for lots and otherwise don't know WTF is going on, yeah, they're just a McFlipper and usually they'll over-ask for the car and if you let them sit on it for a month or two you can usually lowball them a bit so they can get their money back out of it. Either that or the car is a mess and that's why it's cheap and that's why nobody is buying. It sounds like perhaps you dealt with one or two of these types and that's why you're so pissed off about it that your moral compass can't tell the difference between someone buying and selling something and someone stealing something that belongs to someone else.

    But ultimately the reason prices are staying strong is because people are paying those prices. If a MK4 isn't worth that price to you then so be it, go buy a $10k C5 or something.

    Well this exchange sure ran into a ditch with quick fashion, and every post it gets worse, so I'll just stop.

    My 2 cents.... Iíve owned several mkiv supras over the last 12 years. Every single time I've put one of them for sale I've had multiple "flippers" message me and pretend to be an enthusiast looking to purchase their "dream supra." As recently as about 4 months ago I sold one of my other supras and it seemed significantly worse with people lying to me about why they are trying to purchase. Once they provided me their info I would do a little research on my end and like clockwork, their info would pull up a "mom and pop" dealership with several supras for sale. A lot of those calls and emails were from New York and New Jersey. These places would use a couple people to email me if I declined their first person.

    Even though I had one "flipper" offer me slightly more than my asking price (which was super weird because I'd get low balls from all of them), I declined. I would never sell one of my supras to a flipper only to see it somewhere online sitting collecting dust. I would rather screen a potential buyer and roll the dice that they are going to take care of her and are indeed a supra enthusiast.

    Even though having cash for a car purchase is much faster and more convenient (one benefit of flippers); I've always gone through the extra steps involved with someone financing through a bank if I got a good vibe from them that they are purchasing because they truly want a mkiv. Most enthusiasts Iíve found finance since not many people can just pay 40k+ cash for a car and have a trailer outside my house within 48 hours. I had one flipper from Dallas actually email me "You arenít aware of the market, everyone is buying these cars to sell them and you wonít find someone just wanting to buy. Smarten up and I can pick it up tomorrow. Iíll have a trailer out to you in the morning." Of course, I told him to get lost.

    I hope that anyone selling their supra sells it to someone who will take as much care of it as you did and is really looking for their dream car. That's just how I see it.

    I've no intent to 'agree to disagree' with the kind of fucking idiocy that conflates a profit margin with thievery. They are nothing alike at all and if you can't readily see the difference and admit to that difference, well, we can agree perhaps that reasonable people have nothing to gain by talking to you.

    Very few people think or work like that anymore, and that is commendable. I did the same when selling some other desirable cars in the past few years. If someone searching for their dream MK4 can find a seller like that, that is amazing, but I would not expect to work with someone like that if I were buying a MK4 today.

    this abomination is back on craigslist after about a year. If the seller gives you the car with some money you may find it a deal of the day.

    I picked up my 98 supra for what i thought was a fair price and I wasn't really in the market for it. I don't think I would have actually traded my turbo TA for it if it weren't for the fact that I knew the two prior owners very well and felt I could trust it's history. We worked out the trade with some cash on top from my side. Otherwise I cringe at the idea of trying to byuy one from people I don't trust hiding some serious issues especially when the market seems to move these cars very fast. If you're not prepared to jump on good deals fast you would miss out.

    It would take 15k just to make it an eyesore. Best bet is to burn it to the ground.

    I hope that anyone selling their supra sells it to someone who will take as much care of it as you did and is really looking for their dream car. That's just how I see it.

    I'll need your contact info, because that's the sort of seller I'm looking for when my time comes. Far too many flippers out there. Honestly makes me sad seeing them passed around like the redheaded step child no one wants to keep. I'd take it over a million dollar Koenigsegg in a heartbeat. Call me crazy.
