Anyone from the Phoenix area?

Postby New Guy » Thu Jan 30, 2014 5:34 am

I'm looking at buying an '87 GTS this weekend but apparently it's the norm to bring a +1 when buying a used car in Arizona... Way different process from New Mexico, that's for sure.

I wouldn't need your assistance for more than a couple of hours and free lunch will be involved. :smokes:

Already went and got it. I did go armed, just in case. Couldn't meet anywhere public as the car was a non-runner located in Suburbia. Nowhere I could meet him with my trailer in tow.

PO was a pretty cool dude. Car needs some work, but what can you expect for $700?

It does have 98k original miles though.

I helped my sister find a mint condition '86 Celica GT-S back in the early 90's.
I used to enjoy borrowing in once in a while as a change of pace from my '82 Celica Supra.
Even though it was fwd, it was still a lot of fun, plus it looked great in black.
That car was a fine combo of class and sport.

She does need a lot of work. The back of the head is broken and was JB-welded back together. It's a non-critical area but it does leak oil. Fortunately I have a 3S-GE head at home, but it's stripped down and someone kindly lost most of the parts... So I'll have to be the one who finds everything. Gotta love when people move stuff in your garage.

So I need to get it running well enough I can drive it ~300 miles one-way, get a bunch of Suzuki parts for another project of mine, get the head and all of its pieces, then drive it the same distance back. Then I'll have to reassemble the head or pay a shop to do it, then swap the heads out.

Oh, well.

I have another at home that's been hot tanked and inspected for cracks. Name a price, I guess...

I'm going to try and get this running well enough that I can drive it home and pick up my pile of parts for this and various other projects here in AZ.
