Well I just got my RX today. 76,000 original miles. Damn near mint condition. got a cracked tail light on one side. Needs T-belts to run but other than that, its a sweet car.

Got it for 200 bucks

Wow, nice! Any pics? The last $200 Suby I bought had more than 100,000 more miles than that and needed a hell of a lot more than timing belts. You got a great deal. Especially for an RX.

well there was a long battle to getting the car. the owner of it was out of Alaska all winter, and the guy who was fixing it went out of buisness and left the state, but he parked the car at his house.

We got ahold of the mechanic and the owner said he wanted his car back and we were gonna go get it. So I have the legal title in my hands. I started to attempt to get the car back in September so it took 6 or 7 months to get it worked out.

The reason why I got the car so cheap, was its been sitting for a year. The owner assumed that it was parted out so he figured he was at a complete loss. When I told him I knew where the car was, he said give me 200 bucks and its yours. I was really happy to hear that because the old mechanic wanted 1500 bucks for the car....

Dang!:eek:

That is an awesome score, Brad! If I remember correctly, you'd been wanting an RX for quite some time. Now you've finally got one.

Is it running yet?
