AE86 vs. '89 S13 Silvia

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  AE86 vs. '89 S13 Silvia

Alright being a young male my insurance is gonna be hell, my insurance agent said i can lower it by getting a '89 or older car. I wanna know the opinion of others which is a better car. Toyota Corolla AE86 or the '89 Nissan 240sx (silvia) S13. IM leaning towards the S13 because it has 155 hp as compared to 112.

Insurance for the 240sx is gonna be a lot more than the ae86. If your really worried about insurance, get a geo metro, or a civic. FWD will generally be cheaper on insurance than a RWD. Now I'm just assuming that your into drifting (based on your post) so if I were you, and I could aford it, I'd get the AE86. You could build one mean drift machine and get down your technique in it. It takes a lot more skill to drift an under-powered car like the Hachi-Roku. However good luck finding an affordable one in decent shape.:2cents:

Insurance for my car is $130 a month listed as a part time driver. Its really not too bad.
