Help! I need a bigger driveway! (An adoption story and maybe build thread)
If anyone is north of Seattle and feels like helping contact me please! I'll be happy to pay for your time and effort.
Success!! And without a middleman in Washington state. (lookin at you RAT2!)
If anyone needs a midship E153 act fast.... During my search I learned there are now less than 20 of these NIB units left in the country. Over half of those are held by Rodland Toyota of Everett, who have no interest in working with you to ship one out (they supply RAT2 who will ship you one for ~$4500). If you have a good relationship with your Toyota parts person, theres still a chance you might be able to get one of the 8 remaining from the dealer warehouse in Ontario, CA.
