Steel Wheels and road rash. Not a bad find though!

lets do a under over competition. winner gets to brag. Hmm, people are over these cars, but Connecticut was a stronghold, Has wrong radio, and dreaded EGR, any chance this was a LPT turbo GLT? I dont think they made them yet. 1850$ my guess. doubt that was the first timing belt a110K and 20 years, it would not have gone that long.

No LPT for that year. Not until 97.

This is the perfect sleeper. You'd just need to wear a hat and 60ies style glasses to fool Ricers.

I'm in. But let's do it price is right rules. Closest without going over.

I'd offer $1250, but I'm going to say it goes for $2200. Don't know much about CT's car market but why not. 😆

Well, I bid $854 because it's an 854 and somebody bid more than me in seconds...

SOMBO says I can only have 3 cars :cry:

Anyone want a 99 Toyota Rav4 with a leaking radiator and an awful tick?

Rich sporty people. these things were 35,000 in 1995 dollars. 1995 was a recession period too. 88 to 99 if I remember right.then three good years and then dot bomb 2002. a couple good years then 2007. now its due again. Please shoot me. this time around you won't want to be here if marginally employed. be eating grass like the n Koreans, but we have taxes and loans so it wont be in a house. At least they have a house. but I digress.
