  1. Didn't take long for that one to sell. Great price!

    1. relisted

    2. And.... gone again!

  2. Always sketched buying used cars from recently flooded areas!

  3. I have always been curious about these. They have to be fun.

    1. So much fun and the upgrade to the Celica engine is pretty easy and makes the cars even more fun. For this price I am not surprised that it sold fast.

    2. I see there is a nice aftermarket hardtop as well. I think it would be a really fun auto X car.

  4. I often wondered about whether or not to get this over an equivalent Miata. In all of the instrumented tests that I've seen the performance between the two cars is nearly identical. Even the driving experience is very similar, according to the testers. (Car and Driver, Motortrend, Automobile, etc.) Having owned both an AW11 MR2 and NA and NB Miatas, I was of course intrigued by these 3rd gen Mistah Two's. But, considering the storage-space advantage, aftermarket support, and easy-peasy livability of the Miata, it's hard to justify purchasing the MR2. Plus, as cool as the mid-engine configuration is, it can't be as brain-dead easy to work on as the Mazda. Plus, the looks of the Toyo are a little polarizing....

  5. If there are no leaks, what keeps it from filling with water?

  6. They studied proprietors of 3-year old models that were bought new and requested that they distinguish issues that had emerged over the most recent a year. good used cars

  7. It additionally classifies the market dependent on the topographical conveyance of the Automotive Collision Repair showcase. preowned travel trailers Missouri
