just find a shop near where the car is, see if they can get you in for a check up, its well worth it, if you plan on buying the car. atleast it'll give you perspective on what you need to fix


what shop do you work at bob?

matt, there is a red 89+ at the dealership by the big chinatown entrance in victoria. i didnt have time to look at it, but the paint looked really nice. i think it was grey interior, and it had a wing, so it was probably turbo...

If I could I would... but I owed Allan a favour for finding me all the deals he has. I told him like a year ago if I ever found a tranny I'd let him know.
But if I ever see another one - I'll let you know

Oh, Matt 6003, check out this link if you are goign to vancouver it might be worth checking out
http://www.supraforums.com/forum/sho...hreadid=223597

Also, if there's body/interior parts that are bad on it, I have a blue on blue car just sitting here waiting for people to get parts from before it goes to the wrecker.
