I get it. You have a million bucks and change burning a hole in your tuxedo pockets, and you’re desperate to own one of those fancy hypercars like your neighbors all have. Who hasn’t been in that situation? But I am here to tell you to go another route: this perfect time-capsule 1967 Toyota 2000GT.

And now that one's sold for $1,155,000, there's even less chance…

Here's a rare event, a perfect, Bellatrix Yellow 1967 Toyota 2000GT has come up for sale, one of only sixty-two left-hand-drive examples to enter the US. Asking price? $375,000. Who says Japanese cars don't have value for collectors?
