Weird, mine runs on unicorn piss and hacked up JDM parts.
Why do noobs always call their hatch a hatchi but no one ever calls their coupe a couchi?

About to head up to Cali in a week or two.  Been making a list of people to see while I'm there.  I'm very excited.

I'm also considering Oregon if my Cali trip turns out to be unfruitful.  I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

So the one I'm considering most is the following:







Owner claims it's a real GTS.

Uninstalled AC, but components are all there.  Car doesn't have canister(?) or e-brake.  LSD is replaced with a 'normal' (?) one.  Doesn't pass Cali smoke due to carb in engine and no canister (?).  New front shocks, rear brakes, clutch master cylinder, starter, anti-theft door lock, godspeed chassis arm rods and bars, lowering springs, and redline tail lights.  A leaky shaft and worn rear shocks.  All for $3500

Exterior condition is a little shoddy, but I'm repainting the whole thing anyways.  Interior looks decent.  If it can drive from Cali back to AZ, I'm sold.  Thoughts?

Holy initial D tax Batman.

...and the good points are?

Trashed paint, interior and wont pass emiissions for 3500?
 
No upgrades besides the wrong seats and wheels.

I wouldnt pay over 1000 for it.

Please be patient.  Something will come along.

The only AE86s under $1000 are barn finds.  Everything else I've found is this inflated.  This is actually one of the cheaper ones.  Exterior isn't as important because I plan to repaint any car I get anyways.  How serious is the emissions problem?  This one is appealing because it runs, and won't need to be towed back to AZ.  Interior would be nice, but I've yet to find one that isn't completely trashed and gutted anyways.  Upgrades are unnecessary at this point in time.  I just need a car that runs.

Suggestions?  Unfortunately, I'm on a deadline.

Haha, shame.  There's this one as well, but the seller seems to be very fishy and hard to contact:

Deadline is December.

Dont make a mistake and pay 4k for someone elses project.

Aren't they import-only?  Haha, I wouldn't mind that if it was a barn-find R32 or R33
