I think you've come to the right place :)

But you'll have to narrow it down a little....what sort of car do you like?

Well $10k in Oz is the right sort of money for DR30, with $15k buying you a pretty exceptional car.

Plenty of inspration here: http://www.japanesenostalgiccar.com/for ... php?t=6172

And if it's what you're after, there are plenty of DR30 owners on this forum who would chime in with some pre purchase advice.

There is a couple of particularly good R31s for sale in aus atm.
This one is exceptional.

http://www.carsales.com.au/all-cars/pri ... 4&__N=1216 1247 1252 1282 4294963593 4294963846 1633 1664 391 410&PriceFrom=391&PriceTo=410&seot=1&__Nne=15&trecs=26&silo=1011

Both DR30 and HR31 have racing history in Aus.

the DR30 would most definitely be right up your alley then. Bulletproof engines with the potential to make huge amounts of power, healthy aftermarket support (impressive considering the engines and cars are now up to 30 years old), and you can still buy brand new items from Nissan if you were so inclined. Perhaps not the most popular car around but they have uniqueness and 'wow' factor.

Possibly the AE86 as well, but the D1 crowd and "takumi tax" makes them a little less affordable than they should honestly be.

How about rotary power? Series 1-3 RX-7s continue to climb in value. The Series 4-5s are at the point where they won't get any cheaper either.

So, I'm after a performance orientated car NA or Turbo that has at least some form of racing heritage, those crazy looking wheels and flares. Budget is $0-$15000.
I'm not looking for candy paint,50 inch rims, Kenwood speakers and stuff like that. Just something that looks 'Old School' that sounds good and can get up and go if need be.


heritage.... few if any other Japanese car got crazier for real racing then these....

My little build is @ about $15,000, and that includes some pricey look good stuff (spoilers, and custom stuff)

For more specifics.... viewtopic.php?t=12393&highlight=


For some specifics... 145+ whp, 1/4 mile in 15.7 @ 89mph(being driven poorly), 30+ mpg - highway. All from 1606 cc of Toyotas twin cam 4AGE.


Btw... I cut my teeth on older muscle and pony cars, having owned a 68 GTO, 2 Shelbys(one GT-350H, and a GT-500), and a 70 428 SCJ Mach 1. I love the corolla because it can be made to handle VERY well, and go like stink doesn't require anything more than a meticulous build. The Corolla can also carry TONS.... like a spare set of tires, and tools, and jack and jackstands to and from the track... you don't have to have a trailer!!!!!
