VEHICLE STORY

This car is a Japanese imported, right hand drive, 1JZGTE MK3 Supra. I had been in the market for pretty much anything RHD or 1JZ powered. I had been looking at a Soarer before I purchased this car, but the seller of the car I was looking at told me someone had bought it already. Being disappointed that I couldn't buy that car, I looked on Craigslist and came upon a white, right hand drive MK3 Supra. I hadn't really been into MK3's all that much, but the car was at a really good price with low KM's on it, so I jumped on it mere days after the Soarer fell through. One weekend, I went to the place that was selling it, checked it out, and drove it. Unfortunately the clutch was slipping and the paint needed a really good detail, but everything was there, interior was near immaculate, had no rust anywhere, with 160k km on the clock, it made turbo JZ motor sounds, and I knew I had to have it. After coming back the next Monday I negotiated with the owner of the shop it was being sold at and got it for near dirt cheap because of the way the paint looked, and the clutch being on its last legs. Overall, the paint cleaned up very nicely. Only thing that was wrong with the paint was all the grime from transport from Japan.
