An SC300. 114k. 5 Speed. Interior is nearly perfect. It has been in Colorado its whole life and garaged. Exterior is completely straight with just a couple nicks. Good maintenance history.

I apologize in advance for the sub-optimal pics but there weather is not conducive to outdoor auto photography.

Well that looks like fun but I don't think ARB makes any accessories for it. It looks like its got an FZJ80 steering wheel.

Nothing says WalMart parking lot like Teal. But it isn't the '91 Saturn Teal, it is a darker, bluer teal.

And I expect you to scour the internet for hot rims!

Not gonna happen. Pimpin' 20s and some thumpin' base. It's funny cuz the PO said all the calls he'd gotten were folks looking for a new Lowd (lowrider).

Are they 6 on 5.5? I think Farnham's right, go straight to 20's.. http://s0.ilike.com/play#Lil+Troy:Wanna+Be+a+Baller:73840:s624362.9078372.6307113.1.2.134%2Cstd_030cae1eb44a44d3b8effee944021854

OMG is that funny!

Couple years ago we were down in AZ in late May and meeting some friends at Greyhawk, at pretty trendy golf resort, for dinner. Parked in the lot there had to be a dozen pimped out Escalades and I said, "What, is it NBA day Greyhawk?"

It was. The Phoenix Suns were having a team tournament.

To set it apart, you need to score some Toyota Soarer badges for it.

I've always liked those cars, the sc400, too. V-8 engine?

No V8, that would be the SC400. This has an inline 6 that many overstate by saying it is the same engine as the Supra of the same era. It is a 2JZ-GE versus 2JZ-GTE but the motors have differences in the head, head gasket, and pistons.

Still, strong motor and fun to drive.
