I own a 95 sc400, platinum metallic with black interior. It has 57,0000 miles and all original. Still has the cell phone and the indash cup holder. Great car.

Blessed to have 97 Platinum Metallic 130k original with 1st gen V8. Best coupe for the price, reliability and appreciating in value. Worst part is sharing parts with the Supra makes prices a little higher but that's only because the parts are actually quality. ✌
