I really don’t understand the Japanese used car market. On one hand you can’t touch a MkIV Supra for less than $50k, but you could get something that is cooler, more unique, and more Japanese for much less money. Plus you get gull wing doors and mid engine power. Find this 1993 Autozam AZ-1 offered for $16,500 in Olympia, WA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
