as some of you may know, I have a fairly original SA22C RX-7 series 3 turbo tucked away which needs a bit of finishing before it can be road-registered. Now that I’m done restoring my TX3 it seems like the next logical project to move on to, and I spotted this freshly imported S3 turbo on a dealer’s yard in Invercargill during my breakfast trawl of Trademe this morning and wonder if I’d have any chance of selling mine for that much (once it’s on the road, of course).

anyway, I don’t like the paintjob (definitely doesn’t look like the factory Sparkling Black though I could be mistaken), and I certainly don’t like the wheels, but $20k is the road-legal asking price. Which bugs me a little. the fact that this guy can’t seem to shift his S3 turbo for half that tells me I’m being overly optimistic, and perhaps that’s what the dealer in Invercargill is about to find out.

Recession and all that, hem hem hemmmm.

$19,999. CHEAP.

kyteler, it’s in your neck of the woods – mayhaps you could go checks it out for me sometime? Who knows, they might even let you have a test drive!

Moar photos after the jump – but you could always click through to the auction instead and save yourself from my snarky comments ;)
