had a great deal (at one point the entire car was $650) - people are fools - let them go to junkyards as I buy a car to keep this one myself - later on doods!

If you were closer I'd buy it (after inspecting of course). The engine part makes it hard - especially if someone needs to come and help remove it. I searched and remans are in the $2k range, used as low as $1,000. You sure you want to try to remove this engine and sell it without one? You sell the car with the engine for whatever a typical resale value is and use that to buy a spare engine maybe?

SFCamry has got me thinking ...the other option is this: make an offer on this poor girl as she sits and tow her home!!

SFCamry your quick post/reply gives me hope this website is active - maybe someone near Indianapolis will "be smart" - wife's MR2 is only reason I want the engine as a spare but truth be told I do not really have room - the right person will get a helluva deal if they act quick - ankle gets better I will take the time to dismantle this great car - SUCH a shame truly drove like a well-cared for low mileage garage queen should ... then she was vandalized ... dammit!!
Welcome to the site by the way!

Some areas of this site are VERY active. The older models don't see as much traffic. When you poke around you will see there are many, many forum areas here so people do wander around a bit. This For Sale thread gets some attention. CraigsList is probably the fastest way to sell her, or some kind of on-line posting in your area. There are some Toyota fanatics that would jump on a car that is not rusted up. I couldn't drive out that way to two her home, my boss (wife) would never go for it and we have limited room as well to store things (already have my pop-up and trailer to contend with, let alone the three cars at the house). Looks like it would be a fun car to restore, and the convertible element is nice - I would like to have a drop top for summer days.

Good luck with the sale!

Why not fix it. If you can gather the body parts cheaply, it would probably be worth it.

great ... quickly learning the site is full of helpful advice not serious enthusiasts ... "thanks Farnush"!
