JZA80 TT MT prices are through the roof. Finding a nice example, even with mid miles, get ready to write a heavy check. Then modding it hits the value hard. IMO this takes the wind out of the sails of experiencing an MKIV to it's "real" potential. What's a tuner to do?

This is gonna be FUN!

Resale value will go down for sure, but you get to give "collectors" a big f*ck you.

James,

Just ran across this. I can't believe you posted such a bad ass thread without letting me know 馃檪. I really like what you've done.

FYI, Bauxite is still living her best life. Keep up the great work.

You know no other way, my friend. This black beauty for you or a good customer?

It's great to have you back on SF.

True that 馃憡. This beautiful slick top is part of the Just Driven fleet. Last year a group of us like minded car addicts got together and started a YouTube channel. We've collaborated for years, and doing something like this has been a constant topic, so we finally pulled the trigger. Check it out when you get a moment.


Thanks for the welcome, GREAT to be back on SF.
