    Soarer guys?

    Hey guys, I bought a 1992 Toyota Soarer a few months ago, and every step of the way it has just be a complete and utter nightmare!!! When I bought the car, it didn't make it 5km down the road, the head gasket went. I was forced to drive it home the remaining 5km or so, as a result the excess combustion pressure in the collant system blew the shit out of the rad. It took me well over a month to get it all back up and running with a new head gasket, and a couple of other maintnance fixes. Not to make it another 10km... The turbos went!!! Now every time the car gets up to operating temp it spews smoke, leaving it undriveable... I've had it with this car, and have put it up for sale. I may be putting a big single kit on it to fetch a little more in the sale, but then I don't want to find out there may be something further wrong with the engine (Cracked head :S ). So I've been looking at the possibility of putting in a whole new engine (which I might add is much easier than even finding the stock turbos) but I don't really have the $3K to just buy up an engine, if I could find one that'll be on my doorstep $1,750 max I'd be laughing, and seeing as It's a new engine with warranty, I may even concider giving the car a second chance... But as It stands now, I simply want it GONE!

    I'd really like to see $5k for it, it is in outstanding condition for the most part.

    For the most part I've gotten all of the quirks worked out, but it's still giving me grief every now and then... Luckily it's been good enough to let my rage simmer down a bit, I was about to drive it off a cliff lol.
