    Scott's old R32 GTS-25.

    The last owner I'm aware that has it is on JDMST but the thread is like 3 years old, still look over the thread from time to time.

    and there were about two Suzuki Cappuccino's in NSW that I wanted, a red one from Campbelltown which I went to inspect which was sold that morning I went
    and a dark green one that got sold two weeks ago. Spewing.. Till this day I still want one and wish I got it rather than my MX5 at times so I could turn it into something I'd keep for a long time.
    Especially how you can't import Cappuccino's anymore and the ones that go up for sale are your only chance.

    Came with a shit load of spares, think he wanted $6.5k

    Went on holiday for 2 weeks, came back and he had parted it out

    It was exactly what i wanted, sunroof, S2, colour combo & all

    When I was looking around for my first car with a budget of $5k there were two cars I wish I had:

    1974 Fiat 124 BC
    197x Alfa Romeo GT 2000cc (with no rust!)

    ended up getting a Pintara TRX!

    About 18 months ago there was a AE86 Levin (think it was kouki gt-apex but it was ages ago so i've forgotten) White/Black Panda Notchback shell on Ebay, the guy incorrectly listed it just as a Toyota Sprinter & for only 3k, it look mint & had everything but a engine & gearbox. I was killing myself to get it, I went psycho & still today I think about how bloody lucky the current owner is, I still wonder what it might look like today.

    Had a chance to buy a AE86 Sprinter Trueno Black Limited for well under 14K - passed it up because it was missing the original driver's seat and was a bit raggedy - much regret

    I regret not buying a white AE111 with RPF1's that was forsale on jdmst ages ago, I think the old owner was 'DreadAngel' or something along those lines.

    Roughly around 1000 kg, you get individual throttle bodies as stock, an lsd, vvt, 165hp, lsd, 4 seats. Would've probably saved alot of money owning that car, seeing as aftermarket parts aren't that readily available for the car and it would be a great daily driver. Just own it, drive it, have fun with it. Way more spacious than an NA, more powerful and roughly as light (with a greater potential for weight shedding).

    Might end up selling the NA for an AE111.

    Parts not being readily available means you go searching... Means you spend more money :p
    And you end up seeking rare parts, or just parts which in turn are rare, as the care is fairly uncommon. It's like parts for my first gen... If I want anything that was an option, I will expect to pay anywhere between $100 (for something small) to anywhere near 1k (for something big)
