I just bought my SC300 about 2 weeks ago. I bought it with 140k miles & in overall good condition for 3800. The car was located in Austin, which is about 45 minutes from where I live. Aside from the gauges, a small radiator leak, & the factory alarm that keeps giving me problems, it is a great car.
I plan on building it over time but since this is my first car I've ever worked on myself it'll take some time
It is automatic but very rewarding to drive.
