Default first time buyer, help please

hello everyone, im looking at buying my first supra and i was just wondering if i could get some opinions from people on wether this would be a good buy for a first mk3 or not ?

OK the car's body is straight, has never been in a car accident, I've spend over $4000 building it back to almost perfection, hopefully someone can finish it. When i first bought it i had the entire under carriage under-coated so there is NO rust anywhere, not behind the moldings, door jams, strut bars..engine compartment etc! NONE!.
Engine/Transmission, now i spent over $4,000 rebuilding it, with a new CT turbo, Greedy TYPE-S BOV with REACTIVE pipping all around. Magna Flow Exhaust with Duel Slant Tips ( Installed today), NEW RAD, Brand new clutch w/ clutch master cylinder (200kms ago). hmmm there are many more parts, i can't just think of them right now. Car has 178,000 kms on the body and orig engine. 5 Speed Trans.
The BAD
Has a oil leak somewhere, and the head gasket is blown.
This will make a perfect car for someone who is mechanically able. The engine was rebuilt a year ago, 3 angle valve job, resurfaced head..etc..to the block and internals are bullet proof. I have the receipts for everything.
I'm asking $2000 OR bring me any reasonable offers. I really need to get rid of it before summer, so bring your offers! This is a really nice supra, sounds great with the new exhaust, blow off valve is extremely loud and intimidating!
Also comes with 4 extra rims, extra targa top, and a whole room full of extra supra parts I've acquired over the years.


Now ive read up that mk3's are known for the head gaskets going but im wondering if this is a good deal or not, and also if any idea on how much everything said and done would cost to have the head gasket repaired and road ready

thanks and much appreciation
