No crack on the center air vent - those are rare

It is what it is .. expensive JDM RHD supra mkivs and under powered specs of the MKV is increasing the demand of the USDM MKIVs thus revving up their values. Most especially the very low mileage stock 6 speeds.

Until the SC crowd mentality changes , no where will our damn SCs go up in price. I don't see it happening . Am sure most if not many who had tried selling their SC extra parts or even their SC have experienced how cheap the SC crowd is. Try it and you will know what I am talking about , lol.

Definitely a 97 SC300 in Renaissance Red with around 60k miles (or less) is a very rare car! It was definitely the rarest SC I have owned until I sold it to this guy from Maryland.
I personally don't know if the SC will ever be a true collectible from a market perspective, but from my own preference, I definitely want either a 97 SC300 manual or a 98-00 SC in my garage 20 years from now.

Why not just keep quiet and keep the price down? Do you need the car to be expensive to enjoy it? i personally dont mind paying $2500 for a decent SC 400.

Dont get it.
