    Although globally the TR market is soft and have gone down i noticed this month on autotrader and ebay it seems to stay afloat around 100k.
    As far as the time capsule i would buy my car to drive it so for thag price i am getting a 458 speciale or something but not this;)

    But a pretty poor result if you are the original owner and kept it for close to 30yrs, spending money on maintenance and storage without the benefit of driving it. Didn't they sell for close to 200k when new?

    I remember a time capsule in NY with factory miles (~130) sold for about $120k 5 years ago. Don't think it was regularly maintained though.

    I went to check out the car and it was a very clear TR but no way a time capsule example. The front was painted and the color match was bad. Also new leather work on the interior with other wear marks that are not consistent with a car that has only been driven 500 miles. I think the mileage is not accurate, no way to have the bluster wear (same wear as my TR with 17K miles) and needed replaced dash leather if the car was not driven.

    Just my opinion so RM dont sue me, but No way this car had 500 miles!

    In this pic you can see the poorly matched front bumper, you can see the color is darker than the body.

    IF that's the case then the seller did quite well.
