Default Imported Soarers

I'm glad to see more soarers for sale (in the good ol US of A Murica) as opposed to the nose cuts and the US market rejuvenated
I've attached a screenshot I've come across with someone selling 5! It was in my local craigslist, but they wound up to be in WA.

I hope to own one, with all the JDM bells and whistles. Post up if you see some for sale.

I have been seeing quite a few pop up for sale. I would like to own at least one of each generation.

Now that they are legal for import we will see more of them for sale

1991's have been available for a while and soon 1992's will be eligible.

Still hanging on to my pipe dream of importing (and being able to afford) a clean 97-00 5-speed with vvti to complement my 99 SC4...

yes, a 295 HP 1JZ VVT-i would be very nice to have.

Another one! (DJ Khaled voice)
Pics attached. 1JZ Auto, 85K miles. cool design on the soarer floor mats. and according to the seller, rare back up sensor feature and rear UV shader.

I'm going to be using it as a daily. It is auto and the only real thing that disappoints, but I still have the R32 in 5spd to enjoy until we get around to swapping the trans.

There is software in the nissan world called "nissan FAST" which can pull up all of the specs and accessories cars came with from the factory based on vin numbers. Does Toyota have something similar? Vin is JZZ30-0025811 and looks to have most of the bells and whistles including the active suspension.
