Default Want to buy a Supra, though having some problems finding one.

Ey everyone. So here's the deal. I'm looking for a Supra MK IV, but I have a few problems when it comes to finding one. First of all, I'm from Europe, Romania. The reason i posted the zone is because after a lot of searching on european sites, the only supras i found under 25k euro are right-hand drive. OK, so this is the first one. The second would be finding a RZ so it's 6-speed manual. Third, though not that problematic is finding one that's stock, not tuned. Fourth, one that doesn't cost 40something k. And fifth, add them all up. Maybe it's a little pretentious, but you know how it is. When you buy a car, you would rather have one that's ok from the start so you can drive it without any problems and get working on it(and when I say working on it I mean tuning, not changing stuff so you can DRIVE it). But maybe that's just me :P. I found some Supras even under 10k euros, all right-hand drive and Automatic. If I were to buy one I could change it to left-hand driving for about 5k Euro, but I don't think it's worth it(this is the kind of stuff i was talking about previously). Besides that, it isn't an RZ and it would cost a lot more to mount some turbos on it, not to mention it's Automatic. Some tips maybe? I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry to say that this is a very rare car, relatively speaking, and one in good shape typically commands a higher-than-average price.

I'd advise against the conversion(s) you suggested...and just save up for the model/configuration that you prefer. For example, the auto->6spd conversion is very pricey and a LOT of work:

Yeah, I know, that's what I said. But 40 grand + shipping from the U.S. . That's going to take a while to save up. As for the production, from what I know, about 11500 Supras were made in the MKIV series(aproximately). I don't know. Correct me if I'm wrong.
