My next car

Postby datmo » Mon Jul 08, 2013 8:30 am

I was thinking of getting an ae86 hatch. But more than likely a 610. Datsuns all the fuckin way
Just wanted to throw it out there because there's mo topic in this forum.
I know i shouldnt be looking at my next car if I havent even finished my dime.
Just thought they were interesting.

Anyone ever have one?

Never had one. Neighbor used to have a dope one about eight years ago. Didn't know what it was at the time. Once I was online a bit I figured it out. Sick little cars. I'd daily one

Drove one for a few months, but it was an auto... and slow as shit. If you like an 86.... get a 200sx. You will be much happier.

I saw a pretty sick one on the streets a few days ago.
It was a hatch trueno ( just look initial d) and fell in love with it.

I can't come to like the 200sx. something about it just isn't attractive.

Can't love the 200sx? They look the same.

Later S12s came with independent rear suspension.
Also being able to swap in many different diffs is pretty cool in my eyes.
CA18DET will bolt in to the 4 cyl. crossmember.
Or just be happy with the VG30E.

The S12 is everything the hachi wants to be when it grows up.

It was on that grassy pathway near roadsters and that 510 goon if anyone remembers?

The last comment made my fuckin day. lol

Not to mention that S12s haven't succumbed to the Takumi-tax.

Can be had for the cheap.
Easy swaps are readily available.


Don't get me wrong, I love Corollas.
One of my Top 10 dream cars is a TE72 4dr.
But there is nothing wrong with a S12.
NOTHING!!!

I actually think I like the s12 more because it looks meaner and faster.
Damn, how much do these things run for.
Searched 4 different places on cl and found one but it was inaccurate.

So i started looking into s12's and then I went to clubs12.
The people that they're not cars to daily?

I'm not sure between the ae86 or s12.
I def love how the s12 looks but they also said parts are scarcely rare.

Parts to be had a plenty.

Parts cheaper than an 86.

Way more imagination to be had with an S12.

Think about this.
You buy a Corolla. What you gonna do to that Corrola?
Blacktop 20V 4AG-E. Techno Toy Coilovers and adjustable links.
Maybe throw a W58 Supra transmission and a Supra solid axle diff in it? If there are any left.
Throw a set of fake Wats on for good measure.
Hmmm...sounds like every other 86 out there.
BORING!

Or...
KA24DE, CA18DET, SR20DET, VG30E built, VG33E, VG33ER, VG30DE. Maybe a VK or a VH?
What diff? R160LSD, R180LSD, R200LSD?
What other of the fully interchangeable parts from many different Nissans would you put on it?
S13 suspension? Z32 brakes? 5 lug hubs?

See where this is going?

They were telling me parts are actually hard to find and there's little to nothing.
I was planning to literally lower it dual carb amd echaust.
it was a daily so i dont wanna slam or some type of shit.

I do and thanks.
i can only imagine that with the right knowledge and tools, it could be an awesome amazing car.
I like how you can have imagination with it.
Thanks for opening up that point of view to me.

I would like a ka swap in it just so it's reliable for a dd.
Thanks a ton.
I'm excited to get one.

I was also wondering on a side note if i could get the tracking number to the mc?
