    KE70 or AE82?

    I was presented with an opportunity to own either a KE70 4dr sedan or AE82 4dr sedan.

    What would be a better pick?

    - same level of restoration needed for both cars.
    - parts availability for AE82 more difficult but not impossible
    - not a daily, used only on weekends and short trips, no tracks, doesn't matter if RWD of FWD since no drifting just want to enjoy the car.
    - 4K engine for KE70, 4AC for AE82

    thanks for the responses

    Would you be keeping it all stock or replacing the motor with something better?

    Stock for stock, I would probably take the ae.

    thanks sleeper.

    i'll keep her (KE or the AE) stock for the first year to make her a roadworthy vehicle first then will change to 4age 16v twin webers.

    I say the KE. I like the KE body much more. I find old rwd cars then to hold up better as they age. The best thing to do is look at both, drive them if you can. Pick the one you like and has the less to fix.
