omg all americans are so generalizing :C

Like, when I lived in Germany, they all fell into water beds like on that video in the shopping mall.
Oh, and I Found out I like "Kinder-Eggs" (what I used to call them).
Sexy skylines, but I fucking busted a nut laughing at the rims on that purple thing.
I thought I was being obvious enough
so theres this guy with a white supra but i dont hate him because although his exhaust could be used as an oversized cookie cutter, its not loud as shit
Mashed my Mazda in horrid accident so it's time to go job and car hunting.
Assuming you guys are great at it, what's a good import that is RWD and has a great after market selection? I'm still at my first pick for a Nissan S13. I'm going to be doing work soon which requires me to frequently race to different cities so I need a fun car. Nothing too fancy since I'm going to be working for it. Suggestions? :)
oh shit i noticed im in the jap car thread, nevermind
Nissan 200SX S12, S11
Toyota Celica pre-1986
Toyota Supra MKII, MKIII
Toyota Corolla E70 (3TC Hemi engines are the bomb, dude)
Toyota Corolla GTS/AE86
Nissan 300ZX (Shit engine, swap to SR20)
Toyota Cressida (Supra motor in a sedan? Sign me the fuck up)
Mitsubishi Starion/Dodge Conquest
Mazda GLC (Rotary swap, or the I4 is totally fine. Cool car)
Mazda RX7 in any form
1st-3rd gen Dodge Colt (Poor engine selection but with work 4G63T compatible)
There are a lot of cool choices to go with. Some are harder to find but more rewarding, the Nissan S platform is the easiest to get things for but also the hardest to keep running, they aren't as reliable as some others. If you want something nice and respectable, get an E70 corolla. They're cheap as dirt right now and pretty sweet, and even though they have a carb'd 3TC (Hemi, 1.8l) they can easily have tons of pep by simply adding a hot coil, plugs, and header. Plus, the 5-speed variant used a Borg Warner T5 gearbox, not the world class IIRC but still, very fun gearbox. Get an E70, slap on a header, some nice wheels/tires, and weld the diff or get a Supra LSD under her and she's a doriftu box for sure.
If you don't want to be as subtle, I'd say MKIII Supra or an RX7. Two very practical jap boxes with plenty of stock power from the get-go. Definately go for turbo supra, though it's debatably worth it on the RX-7. Turbo wankell engines are ticking time bombs under someone with a lead foot, stick to the Toyota.
Just my $0.02. If you're looking for a fun, but dependable, RWD import, with a lot of aftermarket support... I'd go with an older Toyota. You can beat them to hell and back and they last a good long time.
If you don't like boxes, Nissan 240SX would be better for you, the S13 or S14. But keep in mind those things are hard to find with no problems, and the stock KA doesn't hold up for shit.
Now I had to register to facepunch, just to discover photos of my car used by someone claiming to be me. Seriously uncool.
The reason why my Nismo 400R has been standing in that driveway is true that I gave the car to my photographer friend Hans Lehtinen for shooting nice magazine photos of it.
Couldn't even imagine something like this would occure though...
Sorry, I have only written some build topic here in the finnish forum for Drifting:

After taking a ride home from school in my friend's 1986 300ZX, I had a love for Japanese sports cars.
It also handles like a dream from what I could tell in the passenger seat.
I am japanese racecar.
I've got a first generation camry, it's not a sporty car by any means, but it's plucky, fun, comfortable, and spunky.
Best Japenese car Ive ever seen.
(User was banned for this post ("Threadshitting" - Craptasket))
The GT86 looks to be a fantastic car from Japan.
Hell yeah, Japanese. My first car was an automatic V6 Mustang. After finding that to be slow as hell and pretty much impossible to drive in the rain, it's been the Mitsubishi and now the Subaru. Never looked back.
Old school japanese ftw!

I see you, jdmbro.
for sale here for 2450 euros.
1987' 300zx turbo
should I get it?
Yes. Yes so hard.
dat rear end
I never found myself liking the 90's + supra rear end.
Mk2 is best Supra
Old Toyota master race
The older the Toyota, the better it is. I love the 80's toyota the most.
If you have the money, why not make it atleast respectable?
Speaking of 80's toyota
It really was their best decade
I smell a couple of '78-79 Cressidas in there.
70-80 toyota is best toyota
Later today i'll have a picture of my father's 75ish 260Z racecar
Or sometime this week actually
I'd cream my pants if I find shit like that. Not even the fact that it's cool old cars, just finding shit that's still "new" and untouched. Like, in my mind, I'm sure there's somewhere in Russia with like an abandoned warehouse in Siberia with an untouched stock of arms, tanks, cars, etc. Just shit like that would be so cool to find
Have you read about the Corvette?
1978, 13 miles, interior still wrapped in plastic and featured dealer stickers, and started first time using original fuel! The car was found under a mass of boxes. By chance I believe.
