Hey thats a nice looking car. I've been mildly interested in finding a coupe TR7 for awhile now, do you mind if I ask what you paid for it? Whats the overall condition?

Hey Phil. I recently saw a car that looked just like that in NorCal!

mine is still in oakland ca, under a tarp at my inlaws house. I think I blew out the diaphragms in the carbs (driving to hard). I probably paid too much, $2500. But it looked in pretty decent shape and I have an extra engine, etc.

Hope you get it home soon, you will love it.
Oh, I love the rims. Any information on them you could share?

i was told by previous owner that they were special racing rims purchased from europe. don't know whether to believe that or not, but they look good I think. The receipt for the respray says painted "alpine white" whatever that is.

I liked the fact that on the fhc I could roll both windows down fro ventilation and not be buffeted around by the velocity of the breeze (even exceeding the legal speed limit). I only wish it had the 5 speed, I keep reaching for that fifth gear.
