Tough to beat places like ebay, but there are also specific sections of this very site for buying and selling parts. 8)

My advice would be to get something that is popular, as that means parts will be easier to get. A Datsun or Toyota will be much easier to own that an Isuzu or Mitsubishi. :wink:

Your best bet is after you purchase a car to go to a site like Amazon and buy a service manual for it. The "Haynes" manuals are usually the easiest to learn from. Factory service manuals are also nice, but assume a certain level of expertise, so not always useful for a beginner.

Namaste japclass.
Good to hear you are thinking of restoring one of the many nostalgic cars in Nepal. :tu:
When you get it post up a build thread and members on this forum will help with locating parts, technical questions and advice and support for your restoration.
I saw a few small shops around Kathmandu selling parts and the fact that there are so many E20's still driving around means you have a good source for parts.
Perhaps you could even trade parts with other members with E20's if you have difficulty locating a particular item.

Keep us updated and welcome to JNC.
