Well this kid might be flaking out on me, he still seems really interested and stuff but i dunno if he actually has availablity to the funds so we will see for all you guys that want me to keep it it might still happen i dunno yet. Either way you know, i will be happy. Cause believe me i do want that car still. It was just an offer i couldnt turn down. Anyways he says he will know more by monday once he talks to his dad about getting some money fronted to him so i will keep you guys posted.

i dont look at this thread for one day, and you go and sell the supra? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO dont sell it!

if he wanted his car rebuilt, he should have kept it and done it himself when he had the time. now YOU have alot of time and money into the car.... and if you sell it, just to buy another MK3? wtf? why would you sell a brand new engine/turbo with a nice body, for a beaten car with 100k+ km?

if you REALLY have to sell it, at least wait until you have the car finished and you can drive it. THEN, after you know how the car feels/handles, make your decision....

I wouldnt be too concerned with it guys, i appreciate all your opinions though I dont think this kid will come up with the cash anyways. It sounds kinda cheesy. And no, if i sell the supra it would be to buy a brand new superbike which is the other thing ive always wanted. Because enraged your right, there would be no point, this one is clean from california, no rust, and it will be a fresh engine and turbo... so if i sell it ive gotta consider myself done with supras for the time being. But like i said dont worry until i see if hes good for the cash. He has till Monday to get back to me otherwise im keeping it for sure I will make sure you all know what happens as i find out.

Yeah so im keeping the car, no worries. I dont think the kid could ever get the money if he wanted to. And i already told him i wouldnt accept anything less so he just decided i should keep it. He also said he felt bad for wanting to take it from me cause of all the time and $$$ i have into it. Oh ya and in the meantime guys im also looking for a new exhaust manifold that isnt cracked!! and a couple new upper rad hold downs with good rubbers. I guess now that im keeping the car i better get on these little details. They looked so far away before when i first started tearing her down but it goes back together quite quickly when you start doing it seriously.

I'm glad to hear you are keeping the car

It's going to be sweet when you are done. Sounds like everything is going together pretty quickly too! THe bike will come one day. Once you get the supra together, you won't want to sell it either.

One of these days I'll get my car fixed and come back down there for a day (if I don't work 70+ hours a week this summer) and we'll go for a nice cruise or something.

Yeah, i thought about buying one off of SF or SM but i figured its gonna cost out the ass to ship cause its so heavy so i figured i better check locally first. Also i might just be able to get this one welded up, im not sure yet what i will do.
