First, for all my friends...I found another time-sensitive car to consider buying, so want to see if I can sell my Supra for it. :D

For the rest of you...this is one rare and desireable car. Potentially 1 of only 10 ever sold in the USA with alpine silver, hardtop, and TT. It is truly that rare! You certainly won't see yourself coming and going, even at large Supra meets. ;)

For full details and a few pics, please go to my web page listed in my signature. This car has 125k miles but was bone stock its entire life until 120k. It currently has BPU mods installed, but is run very conservatively on the street, usually at 15 psi. I now run the car exclusively on blended gas with at least 94 octane also, just for extra insurance. I thoroughly inspected the car prior to buying it in April 2004 and it has 155 psi compression across all cylinders and had a leakdown of 10% per cylinder (balanced and natural wear...no problem).

After reading the description on my webpage, please note that all performance mods are included, and all stock parts removed from car are also included (no stock exhaust available, but stock catalytic converters are).

This car is aggressively priced for a quick sale at $25,999 (notice the $1 price break from $26k!). :D

Anyway, the car is available immediately and I hold clear title so there are no games with any bank. No low ballers please as I know what the car is worth, and am only selling to get another HT...if I can't sell she will stay with me until the next "must sell" opportunity.

The VIN# is JT2JA82L5R0018832 and she has received a lot of recent maintenance during her stay with me (oil, plugs, hoses, many fluids, and a few cosmetic pieces). She is the most structurally solid Supra HT I've ever owned too...feels great overall.

This car is priced where it is due to my belief in full disclosure. Although there is a lot to get excited about, this Supra needs a few things if you want it to be cosmetically perfect. Notably the front bumper needs to be freshened up, the windshield has a small chip (not a crack), and the hood needs a lot of very small hail dents removed. Also the interior needs a few trim pieces (including a center console) to be perfect, but the existing parts are all there. The car has a fresh ignition and clutch, and is VERY strong for a straight BPU Supra, dynoing 400 rwhp, 425 rwtq at 16 psi of boost.

Please send all questions to me via e-mail (NOT via SupraForums PM) and feel free to check her out here at her home on the Supra Turbo Hardtop Registry:

Man you must have found a real jem of a hardtop to let this one go, I thought you always wanted a silver HT. Good luck with the sale. To anyone interested in buying his car I have his 95 HT, although it was in someone elses hands between him and me; the car mechanically is in excellent condition.

Just to be clear to anyone interested, I received an offer of $22k this morning. I'd only be willing to go somewhere near that price if I pulled off EVERY performance part on the car, and downgraded the headlights back to the old 1994's.

I am definitely willing to entertain serious offers of course, but I feel I've priced the car fairly already so take heed. Thanks all. :)

Any close up pictures of the interior (pieces that you suggest need replacement), the front bumper cover, and the hail damage?

Interior...I'll see what I can dig up for you. Front bumper cover is pretty clear from one of pictures I did show, and the hail damage is impossible to notice in a photograph.

Just in case there is local interest. It would be nice to see the car stay in Washington after all!

I saw the car when he purchased it and I've seen it since. It's in good shape.

Best of luck with the sale, Steve. That's a very fair price given the upgrades.

Thanks a lot for the kind words guys. Due to a lot of factors coming together and a lot of decision making in my family, I'm pulling the car off the market. The offers I was getting were in the $22k range and, although the car hasn't been listed for very long, we have determined that the replacement vehicle cost is just too high to pull this off without incurring significant expenses beyond what we feel is reasonable for our financial goals this year

As I'm sure many of you know, the only real way to determine what any used Supra is worth is pretty much to put it on the open market. I think I've learned that my car is worth about $22k to a potential buyer (with all current faults), which I don't have a problem admitting. However, that is not enough money for me to eat the acquisition and switching costs associated with any other interesting vehicle worth replacing my Supra with.

So, I'm going to bite the bullet and do all the maintenance my car needs and continue to be a Supra pilot for the forseeable future, as well as attend to my duties here and the Supra Hardtop Turbo Registry. My apologies for the distraction, but maybe you'll be seeing me all again here next spring! ;)

Thanks Mike. The only kicker is that since I pulled the car off the market I've received 2 solid offers, and one of them is considerably higher than the original stated asking price. Decisions, decisions. ;)
