Cars for Sale

By the time you read this article, the auction in question will have expired (either with or without a buyer).

Phillip Weston RMVT or one of the Mitsi aficionados can correct me if I’m wrong – but as far as I know, facelift narrowbody GSR-Vs (post-1985) with the 2.0 Sirius DASH engine are a rare breed, since by this time the widebody GSR-VR model with the 2.6 Astron had pretty much superseded the rest of the Starion range. So to see one for sale on YAJ in tidy condition, and for a very reasonable price is pleasantly surprising indeed.

and don’t you just love the versatility of bronze Watanabes?

1987 Mitsubishi Starion: DASH 3x2 powered!

For 280,000 yen (buynow) you’d be safe to assume someone would snap it up ultra quick, if not locally within Japan then possibly internationally – as this recent thread on Austarions would suggest.

if I had the means to buy it right now, I would… but bigger and better things currently take precedence. Hopefully in my next scheduled blog update I can shed more light on this very subject.

1986 Toyota Century VG40, start price $12,000

I’m finding more and more ’80s Japanese sportscars and other rarities on tardme every week. The fact that most of them are listed at ridiculous prices has its advantages and disadvantages (as I’ve complained about bitterly in the past); though I suppose if prices stay artificially inflated there’s a chance I might get a tiny bit more than the “asking price” I had envisioned for the KDR30 if I ever decide to pass it on. We shall see.

But it’s amusing to see the sort of price disparities that exist between the auctions in Japan and the yards over here (even after taking shipping and compliance into effect) – which might be the subject of another blog entry one day if I ever get my USS login back.

Anyway, back to liberty8… this must be the yard mentioned in an earlier blog post, because in addition to the aforementioned Century… look – there’s that Soarer, that AW11 MR2, and that Fairlady 200ZR!
