    Hello,

    Old member here looking to get back into one.

    As you all know, finding one in good condition is getting incredibly difficult. Does anyone have any leads for clean MTX cars?

    I was thinking that attending the convention might be a good idea, never been before, but didn't know if anyone tried to sell their vehicles during it like other shows I've attended?

    I frequent the FS section and SHO finds here, and craiglist, etc, but have a feeling a quality car is a "have to know the right person" type of thing now.

    Thanks!

    Welcome back!

    If you are willing to go as far as the west coast, Mike at Shosource had a couple of Gen 2 MTX cars and Kurt had a Mocha 91 for sale as well. This was a few months ago so you would need to check with them to see if they are still available.

    There is actually a pretty decent 89 on cl from Colorado Springs just now, for a decent price too, I think.

    I have seen a few people try to sell at Conventions, but it’s a gamble to expect it. Keep looking and you will find one.

    And definitely come to Convention!!

    A quality car find is a 'look all the time across all the platforms (here, ebay, craigslist, facebook group, auto trader, everywhere). The more rare they become, the harder to find, and you need to cast a wide net
