I just sold my 92 celica last night ad i need a car to drive until my 87 is done. I found a 1979 celica supra for sale in mint condition for $2000.00, i have next to no knowledge of these cars. Good/bad idea? what are they worth? the motor was rebuilt about 3 years ago, it runs but he said needs some fine tuning. I'll be goingto take a look at it in a few hours.

Buy it!! I would love to own an MKI. Easy to work on and reliable. Very smooth also. But remember it's 28 years old.

:werd: I would buy it, those things are ancient. So if its in good condition it sounds like a good buy.

^ EXACTLY, dont buy this car so that you have two cars down instead of one. Buy it for the plain fact that you will be the proud owner of a MKI!!! It doesnt get much more oldskool..

DD the 79 until you get the 87 up and then mod the 79. Don't pass this up. If it's mint, buy it, buy it now!!

So I went to see it and it looked alright. Some rust around the bottom of the fenders and quarter panels. Interior was shot and he didn't have any gas to make it run. he was supposed to get it running that evening for when I came back, but he was drunk ... so yea. And this morning he wasn't home.

The car needs some love but we'll see. For now tho! ---> MK3 to the max
