I often wonder how different things might of have been had I found a GT-S instead of my GT. I can tell you I looked for about six months, and certainly never found more than two GT-S’, and definitely not for a measly $3500 or in this condition, which I would have bought without thinking.
The seller says his uncle says it has trouble going into reverse... They’ve only had it for a year. Are they aware the pretty much every manual Toyota made grinds into reverse like a MFer? Someone might be really lucky. Even still, if it needed a transmission swap, not a huge deal. Talk them down under $3k, boom.
As for me, the GT-S would have fixed 99% of my complaints, but my head would still hit the headliner.
