    What to make sure of?

    I wouldn't say that theres much different to check for in our AE86's than when buying any other 2nd hand car. But main tips I guess would be to be sure that the engine conversion has been done properly(if you want something with more than 4-AC) and that rust wont be too much of an issue for you.

    Welcome to Sydney.
