I may be able to get a good deal on a '97 TT/6sp Supra in Japan, and would of course bring it stateside and legalize it. If I did, I wanted to know if anyone would be willing to trade a decent TT Targa 6SP for it, or would be willing to buy it. Just testing waters at the moment to get an idea for the demand on JDM HTs.

Before you begin testing the waters for demand on JDM Supras, you might want to test the waters for legalizing them for use in the US.

Its hard. Unless you fool with vins. However, if u can do it. I am sure several people wouldnt mind have a 97 HT.

Huh...? Why do you want to buy that Jap spec car and trade or sell it for a US spec car? Why not just buy a US spec car to begin with?!?!

Also off topic. Man the weather has been ok lately. I took my top off 2 days ago and have left it off. I get many compliments on my car. It's funny because no one ever say shit before when I have my top on.

This must be the dumbest comment of the day. Take a wild guess why he just can't buy a good condition US spec hard top.

Do you really think he'll resort to a fancy Jap spec trade, if he could just buy the car he wants in the US (for the price he wants)?

Why do all these people think they can just bring a car in to the US and drive it around legally? :blah:

I don't have a targa and none of my 3 Supras that I've owned have been...so I'm not much help in answering your question. Sorry.

I wouldn't mind having a JDM Supra though. Good luck with your idea, it's going to be an expensive one.

And that's exactly why hard tops have a better advantage.... oh besides having a stiffer chassis...etc.etc.etc. :stickpoke

Actually, I've heard that with the targa on, targas have a bit stiffer chassis. With it off however, HT's definetly have better chassis.

I wouldnt trade my car for ANYTHING anytime soon. I would rather it be hardtop though. I've owned it a month and still havent taken off the top.

Nope. Not even close (at least on the mk3). Drive a targa car (roof on/off) over a speedbump at an angle. Watch the corner of the windsheild move. Then drive a hardtop.
