all i can add to this is drive one! with the original 4a-ge engine and t50! its like the e30 you understand the appeal when you get behind the wheel!
they feel like a rally car on the B roads very quick revving little engine for the power that's in them! i would rate the ae86 as an equal to the e30 in terms of a fun driving car and very easy to drift and throw around! they only weigh around 1080kg which is what makes them so much fun!
regarding weather there worth the money or not! im not sure! the uk spec cars are not worth the money in my eyes as most original ones are rust buckets/low spec and styled the same! were as a nice clean jap gt apex levin or sprinter trueno (popup headlight) in two tone black/graphite red/black white/black ect... are worth the money as they are class cars and have a huge following across the world! i loved working on the trueno i rebuilt with a mate and i am really looking forward to building up my own red/black 2 door trueno when i get the time!
