Good luck finding an AE86 for sheap there buddy They usually run about $5-6000 in average condition. Your best bet would be to look on Autotrader.com. Sometimes a cheap one will pop up on there.

Get a 1993 Acura Integra GSR. Those are about $1500-2500 right now.

Firstly the GT APEX model is from Japan and they go for a lot of money for it's state. The GTS is similarly spec and is from the US but these also go for a large amount. Even a Miata go for less than what the AE86(what's this world coming to!).

I know its crazy. I want a Corolla GTS real bad, but as high as their prices are, its almost impossible for me to get one as a first car Thats why Ive settled on a 1993 Acura Integra GSR.

I've seen a few (around hereand on ebay), for under 4-5 thousand and not bad shape. Just have to wait and look for the right opportunities to come around.

puerto rico is a small country and im not complaining.....

anyhow, i hope u arent thinking of buying a corolla gts just cuz of initial d..... in real life, those cars arent THAT fast....

honestly, they really arent fast until they get a lot of money thrown into them....


older integras go for cheap....


actually, all old hondas go for cheap.....


do u just want any car thats affordable or wat?

if it is coz of initial d then i would go get something like lancer evo or fc... -.-
ya i admit that after i watch initial d i hav interest in car n i was dreaming to own a fc or lancer evo if i afford... i just come out wif it " ehh the front light of that trueno is cool "^^ of course i know that it cant be that fast... ^^ i just want a good looking car < in my thought > and able to do some drift that will be more than enuf ^^ but of course if i afford i will get some new model that can run fast XD

just for now i am still targeting for trueno panda ae86 ... wan the front light tats probably main reason? haha

but if i found there are others car that is more cheap and my type of course i will change my target ^^ as long as i afford it and it is my type i will consider it ^^

Don't just point the finger at Initial D. Ever seen Best Motoring/Hot Version Videos? Also D1 has some contribution.
