If so, would please share your story?

Should I give up my search?

Give up your search, many times have I vented about this trying to sell a 98 myself. What gets under my skin is that owners of 93-95 car try to raise the value of their cars to that of cars like my 98. My car is valued at $31k and has every right to sell for more.. maybe not double though.. but someone with a 94 valued at $16k might just see fit to ask $30k+ and might just get it... it's crazy.. after I sell this 98 I will be in the market for a 1995 6speed which I'm sure I'll find $10k over blue book value... $5k is fine but almost double the value of the car.. thats just crazy.. but the market is there full of stupid people so oh well I wont complain with the offers I've been recieving.. :D but expect to hear from me when I am looking for a car and I see an mkiv with 56kmi asking $30k.. HA! ;) goodluck

Believe it or not, I got my stock 97 under blue book :) However, this was last March before all the F&F crap. I got it from a dealership that didn't know what they had. In fact, I was given a price over the phone even before the car was on the lot. Before the salesman even saw it himself. I knew something was up and could not pass. Viewed the car less than 30 minutes after it arrived on the lot, looked it over, drove it, got it inspected and before I knew it the car was in my garage. After the deal the salesman admitted that he should have sold it for alot more.

Don't expect this to happen nowadays. The law of supply and demand controls price. Blue book values.... throw them out the window.

Good luck though.

Crazy prices

The prices of MKIV's are insane especially for a 93.5-95, there is some guy trying to sell an auto 95 with 7x,xxx miles for 35K, hes like but its got rims and a system ect.. unless that car is making 700+hp and is really built its not worth close to that. I want a 94-95, but I onlt wanna spend 22-27K for a nice 6 speed, I wish I could find one just close to Blue book

I paid Blue Book three and a half years ago for my '94 TT 6 speed, which at the time had only 21,000 miles on it. I bought it off a doctor literally hours after he posted on ad on the internet. Obviously, he knew nothing about Supras.

I had been searching for a Supra for a few months....even more amazing about my find....this doc lived forty minutes away from me. :D

I paid $22k for mine in March of 1999. A red 6 speed, 67k miles, still under the Toyota Certified Used car warranty.

I think that was at the upper end of BB at the time.

You are not going to get a mkIV tt for anywhere near bluebook, anytime soon. i feel your heartache as i am in the market for one too, but not in the $10,000 over kbb market. most people here will tell you KBB means nothing in the value of their supras, and if you want to believe that, you too can own a supra.;)

Toe, that sounds almost identical to my story. Early in 1999 I was originally looking for a very nice MKII. I found a nice silver 85 with lots of documention. Had a few fluid leaks but nothing $200 couldn't fix. I sat on it too long and by the time I gave an offer someone else had offered his asking price. I was bummed and pissed at myself for waiting too long to give him an offer.

Lo and behold, the very next weekend I saw an ad in the local paper for a 93 TT 6spd. While talking to the guy and writing down all the pertinent info he mentions it was not a targa. Many people had called but were immediately uninterested because it was not a targa. I didn't mind one bit, targa's/convertables and my long hair don't get along too well. He was located only 45 minutes from my house. I went and looked it over. Very very clean inside, a small ding or two on the outside...hey, it's a used car!

It only had 27,000 miles! He too was a doctor and had two toddlers with another on the way. This was a pleasure vehicle when only he and his wife would go out. Since he had a third child arriving he needed another large vehicle. My offer was right at blue book (1999 blue book values) and he accepted.

Angels have to smile every once in a while, so why not on me!

You just have to have the money in your hand and wait.:) Took me six months to find mine and I've heard people who searched over a year. You never know when you might find the perfect deal.......

feelin

i've been looking too. i've been in the market for a new car for more than a year now. my cousin got me turned onto the import scene and i gave in. i loved imports but i made a decision, if i get one i want the king. i did all the research on rx-7's z's vr4's andi knew i had to have a supra. a while ago a woman was selling her 93.5 TT targa with 96k miles for 17k. i kick myself everyday for passing it up. i did it cuz it ws an auto but now i wish i jumped on it. so now imstill waiting, and seems when i find a 93.5-96 it's severely overpriced. i argue constanly about the pricing but people don't seem to reason. so good luck to you and toomyself. i hear stories like these about grandmothers and doctors sellin their supras and i just hope i luck out one day too. i search autotrader religously and my local ad papers (hint: don't look in real newspaper) just have to hope i guess.
