YEs.. i want to know.. how much can i trust this site and does anyone here have info on this?

You see, from what i heard the last Toyota 2000Gt in England was sold to Japan in 1998, ohh and its WAY! too cheap! so is it real.. if it is i might just buy it :D

Actually, I was very skeptical at first. But after reading an article in Sports Car Market Magazine, a ratty example could be worth somewhere around 20,000 pounds. Whereas a clean example could fetch 50,000 pounds and more. From the decription, it looks like this car has been neglected for many years. So this could be a good investment opportunity IF you can find the parts and labor skill needed to restore it back. Both of which would be rare to find.

On the other hand, there are a few ratty 2000GTs racing in Europe in vintage events, and those cars are hardly worth $50,000?although, with massive doses of contemporary technology, they have proven to be quite competitive.

The 2000GT will always be an orphan car, with a limited following. If all the cars owned by the two dealers were to come on the market at the same time, we would likely see a price implosion. However, so long as the supply is strictly limited, prices for good cars should stay in the $100,000-$150,000 range.
