anyone in here interested in keeping their mkII original or is everyone about modifying the hell out of em
I was waiting for someone to say this. Let me respond:seth_31584 said:I'm keeping mine as original as possible so it won't lose its value if I ever try to sell it.
IMO that's not much money when you think about other cars that retain their value or increase in value.Toyota4555 said:Actually they can be worth some fair money for how old they are, I have 78k miles on mine and could sell it now for $4k, these cars were not very popular as well, the mk3 now there was a common supra.
Except for putting in a 6MGE, header, intake, exhaust, springs, having the interior redone in 2-tone leather, and (hopefully as soon I hear something back) some new rims, I want to keep it pretty stock.gammbino said:anyone in here interested in keeping their mkII original or is everyone about modifying the hell out of em
The only problem is, except for guys like us, there will never be a collectors market for them. Too many were sold, too many people still own them, and way too many are still being driven in an overly "dogged out" condition.quick said:

MA60 Supras aren't worth any money unless they're _low_ miles (under 60k) because so many were sold. Why would someone pay $$$ for your car when they can get another for $2700?
You're going to have to hold onto that car for decades and hope that a collector's market grows for it if you want to get any money out of it.
On the flip side they hold their value well (but the value is low).
Exactly my point.hard_drive_j said:

I have seen about 5 in the last week that were on their last leg, and honestly should either be one of our parts cars or in a junkyard. I can't even believe that the folks driving them, got them through inspection.
Come to Atlanta sometime, you will see plenty. I don't even have a problem finding "used parts" for mine, because so many are in the junkyards here. Just 1 Pull-a-Part location has 5 alone. Spend one hour in an area in the Gwinnett/Dekalb county border area around Jimmy Carter Blvd. and Indian Trail Rd., and you are guaranteed to see at least three in terrible condition.SloppyGoat said:The MK2's are extremely rare here in the south. You can go years never seeing one. I really don't think they're as common as some of you think. Also, in the northern states, you won't find many, since older cars all rust.
I bought my 86 MK2 because I've always wanted one from the day they were new. It's not in mint condition, but it could be very easily with a little work and a bit of $$$.
