*I have moved away from the where the car is located, but am back few times year or could have family member meet you. Next time will be back is in early May for weekend. Located in Vancouver, BC, but it is an American car. can potentially meet in Washington if you don't have passport and can't get into Canada for small fee and deposit ($100 fee $300 deposit if Bellingham, $400 to Seattle). However, I'd prefer to meet in Vancouver since the border can cause problems.

One thing the Toyota inspection noticed was minor exhaust manifold leak on cold start. Mechanic says it's very minor at this point, but could be looked at in the future. They also noticed minor oil drip below transmission that hasn't been diagnosed yet, but believe it's very minor. Will update if get it checked. Final two things on the inspection were very minor play in one wheel bearing (I have bearing for when it's needed) and sway bar bushings are worn (I have part. hour labour). have not done them yet because don't notice the issue. There is no noise on the highway from the bearing. don't notice rougher ride from the bushings being worn. The Toyota mechanic said it's judgement call whether to do the bearing now, and the only reason is to potentially put less wear on the hub, but you'd only replace it now to save you $200 part in the future.
Paint isn't perfect some chips around the front bumper and some water spots on the hood; you'll want new paint job if you're looking for pristine paint. Interior is in good condition for 25 year old car, but don't expect brand new car. There was one collision in 1997 that required front rear bumper damage for $3600. Seems like lot, but that is quite minor accident consider what the body shops charge.
Sure, bit of work could be done, but remember that stock mint condition one of these would go for lot more $12k+.

You don't have to pay duty/taxes because it is from the US and that also means it meets US safety/emissions requirements.
