View Full Version : 2 years of searching........

hey guys im new to this site but have been members of nissansilvia and secret drift for awhile.
any way....the story.

im aaron and for the past 2 and a half years i have been looking for a toyota sprinter but to no avail. my basic requirment was that it needed to be fairly tidy and at a suitable price. it took me ages to fulfill this. last month i decided to sell my s12 that ive owned for a year or so and get serious with my search. finally last week a mate told me that a couple that he knew where selling a sprinter so i decided to take a look. by this time it was my 8th 86 ive actually looked at since the very begining of my search and was sort of already expecting the worst. i was completely shocked when i rocked up to there house to find this white sprinter sitting in there yard. i had a good look and a test drive and decided then and there that i wanted it!!!
i asked the price and was told 3 grand. by this time you would think i would have a bit of money stashed....but after owning the s12 all my money had gone to tyres, petrol and booze. so i told them i would give the 2k.....they said no. a week past at which i was deperately trying to raise the extra money and was starting to lean more towards an r31 i was shown. BUT i recieved a phone call from the couple saying that if i could take it away soonish it was mine for 2k. .......i was at there house ten minutes after ahahaha.

any enough of my boring story the car:

its a white 84' model toyota ae86 sprinter ADM
it has been resprayed in metalic white before but there are some paint chips in it already.
new shocks
sound system minus sub and amp
everythink else completely stock
there is some easily fixed rust in some places but i will fix that within the next few months
unfortuanatly there is rust in the hatch.

coments would be good but be kind lol

it would be cool to meet up with some of the SA boys and girls and get to know some of the other sprinter owners to see what sort of mods theyve done and advise.
