Give this a shot for further research in your area (Alabama, near 36695 ???)...http://msn.autotrader.com/cars-for-...nerId=100023102&captureSearch=true&Log=0
In Los Angeles area (Beverly Hills, 90210), I see about 25 Celica. ALL Ranging from $5k - $9k, all with 100k - 150k miles.
If the interior is really bad, and the car has over 200k miles on it -- 50k miles more than its peers -- AND he wont go lower than $3k, you might want to take a look at something else. Toyota engines can take a lot of beating, but for the 200k miles which is already on the engine, this sounds like he should price it accordingly for the 12 year old vehicle that it is.
Either he wants to sell it, or he doesn't want to sell it. We all love our Celicas, but some times it is time to move on. Have him call you when he wants to drop the price further.
This is only my opinion, so take it as a grain of salt.
