Default Supra sitting at Car shop, what should I do??

Hey everyone Im new here, I have a question

Theres a red MKIV Supra sitting in the back of some car repair shop, just sitting there. Its kind of hidden, Im not to sure what year it is, it doesnt have any badges on it like 15th anniversery. But its just sitting there the Body is in like near perfect condition, a few scrapes. The headlights have water leaked in them, its a tan interior, 6 speed. Not registered, no plates. When I first found it, it was the first time ive been there like a while that was about months ago. So its been sitting there for atleast 5 months. If I offer the guy, about how much do u think I should? Ill gt more info, pics, miles, motor condition. Also its a targa top. Damn I want that car.

So I called the guy, he wouldnt tell me a lot. He said it has 60,000 miles, its a Twin Turbo, Supra Targatop. For $20,000. He didnt tell me what year, he said come by and we can negotiate. This sucks, why can I be 2 years older and I could get it. SH*T!

60K? Just in time for a new timing belt. You better start saving your pennies, you'll probably be 30 before you can afford a TT MK4.......

If it's a 6spd (i.e. not a 5spd), it's a turbo.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but why do you have to wait until you're 19? Just give him the $18k-$20k or whatever, and then drive away...

Agreed a lot of money, but it's a lot of car too.
