2nd gen Turbo II rx-7 would be fun or a 1g AWD DSM.

A 1g would mean first generation. Then theres 2g and so on. The Skyline sounds kinda cool although everything is usually better in 2 door. What do you think of it? Would you be proud to drive it?

EDIT: so he means a First Generation (1g), All-wheel drive (AWD), Diamond Star Motor (DSM) <-- i think thats DSM

1g AWD DSM = 90-94 All Wheel Drive Eclipse GSX or Talon TSi

The turbo rotary is unreliable period. But, it's a fun car. Can swap a V8 in it.

93 Skyline for $4000 from where?

Unhappy

I found the deal by calling a local exporter in tampa bay, they call it scratch and dent cars...but not any problems with this particular one. and yes i would love to have a skyline...just the car alone would be something you dont see everyday.. had an 88 rx7 gtu before...one of the better cars ive driven, just didnt realize it before i sold it....
