yeah if you got the entire car $250.00. You figure you put in 2000.00 it would probably turn out pretty nice.

I've seen rolling chassis sell for a grand, no interior no engine so ya. Worst case scenario you turn around and sell the 5spd R154 to someone and get your money back, if not double.

Default 2 Supras for $500 each

I bought an 87 NA for $500, got to drive it for 2 1/2 hours and the motor locked up. I knew the engine knocked when i bought it so i wasnt to dissapointed. Rebuilt a junkyard engine, and now im working on fixing the rust. You can definitely get these cars for cheap, put some money into then and have a really solid car. Bought a second 87 (Turbo this time) lots of mods but engine acces were in a bucket, wire harness was in pass seat spot, brought seat home in truck. So unfortunately this is a parts car, and i have to kill it.
