Ahh that's the C210 Skyline. Not interested sorry. ;)

Although if anyone knows of a decent Datsun 240k Coupe or a 1977 Celica ra28 fastback for sale, let me know. Have cash waiting.  :)

Jackaroo's are made in Japan Johny. They are known as Isuzu troopers in every other country.



Hey Mick, yeah I know they isuzu. I did say doesn't tick any of the boxes BESIDES made in japan  ;D


So AE86? From your list, I think that's all that matches brand new ~30 years ago and not a rotary...


bzzzzzz wrong. year was 1981. I remember it clearly like was yesterday. sitting on a tilt ramp in the middle of the yard. Bright yellow with full optioned body kit and alloys. it was the hottest car in the yard.

I remember circling around it and imagining my dad cruising in it with me in passenger seat. I was running around him begging: "Dad dad buy that car" hmm he never did  :'(. i was sucker for sharp lines and pop up headlights.


should be a give away now.

mate this what i was going to check out next but didn't want to spend 3K though Plus got a good deal on the car I bought. If you want me to check it out for you I probably can. Just shoot me a pm if interested.

other cars i was considering for their specialty

yeah
cordia turbo GSR is understated. good car but don't like FWD

Holden/ISUZU (too keep mick happy) Piazza Turbo (EFI RWD and TURBO YAY)

Mitsubishi Starion ( same as above and rare as rocking horse droppings expecialy later model with aero kit)

Another holden/isuzu gemini coupe

Any of the 2 door corrola's

early celicas TA22 TA23 RA23 and R28

Mitsubishi Possibly starion/sigma turbo but later don't fall in my category as its got 4 doors.

Pulsar ET turbo (with stock kit) rare as and crazy little car. also N12 Exa turbos expecialy the later models. pitty FWD

Silvias S13  abused to buggery atm. Hard to find a nice one

200ZR Z31

Z32 300zx TT  2 seater same as S13 atm.  cheap and thrashed out good ones hard to find.

Used to like 240k the one Retro Z is asking for, but lately been put of by it. they not a really nice looking car unless you going to spend big $$$ making a GTR replica. That's my opinion anyway

to me celicas (even i don't like toyota brand) are tuff looking car. it looks good on the outside and on the inside.

same goes for RX4/ 929 Coupe and RX3, RX2 but we know they are quite hard and exy to get.

enjoy hunting guys good to see we all looking outside the Z box every now and than.

Im all for trying other cars but we all know we keep the Z in the special place where no other car can replace.

Regarding that Skyline I posted pics up of earlier (C210 apparently), the car is at Buderim on the Sunshine Coast and the owner is asking a very negotiable $1500.

cheers

Yeah that car has been on and off ebay for like 2 years. I remember as i have bidded on it unsucessfully 3 times now. It looks decent but cant seem to figure out why the sales always fall through..my guess is its hiding something sinister. The same photos were used in the ad from last year too. Wonder what it really looks like now. ???

No probs.

Haha i like your thinking. Was thinking the same.

Peeps if you have the cash and space now is the time to buy these hiding classics.
And keep an eye for a clean example of the future classics.
Like i said before keep an eye for s13 rps13 z32 and r32 r33 gtr. These are droping in price and getting destroyed at incredible rate. soon to be followed by s14,s15 and r34.

This. It's been a recent dream of mine to find a green/grey two-toned 1988 manual, sunroof, CA18DET, HUD equipped S13 and hunt down some parts to make it pretty much fully factory optioned. Retro goodness such as cool-box, rear quarter glass light-up inserts, FACTORY HEAD UNIT!!!, digital climate control, rain visors, brick lights,  the lot!

I have never seen somebody do anything like that. Every S13 I see is modified, cut up, skidded, crashed, repaired, blah blah. Nothing against that, but it would be very cool to see a proper, original, top of the line Silvia.

I think even more so than the GTR, since it's much more common to see a bone stock, clean GTR (since they're a valuable car).

Absolutely love them! There's so many funny/weird options that were available for the car. Not to mention nismo parts. Factory option knee-pads on the door:

This is a rare car I came across in Japan that I had to import - I think it must be classified as collectable as only 200 were produced in 1988...

yeah my cousin had a green silver two tone s13 with HUD and digital dash climate control etc.. was Ca18DE but we converted it to CA18DE-t. also had some rare factory front lip on it aero//nismo.

he sold it few years ago was clean. saw it recently on gumtree for 5k but in lot more sorry state  :-[

it cheezes me off when undeserving owners thrash/mutilate some nice reasonably rare models to make it look like a POS and than ask big
ok if you play with common not so special models but mutilating Aero or GT models should be punished by death by stoning or crap parts they put on these cars.

Exactly ^ so many hacks writing off and raping their Autech S15's for example. All good, means an autech motor might pop up cheap for my s13. Would be fun fun fun.
