    2 that i know of. Mine and a red stock as adm. I'm pretty sure he has no clue what it is. I have heard (second hand info mind you) that there is a blue levin done up and also a white levin, but neither i or my mates have seen them and the dudes who told me about them don't seem to know much about cars so unless i see them myself i'm doubtful.

    Its funny when you meet people and they have no clue what kind of car mine is, (being a trueno doesn't help) or some young fellas who are like "OMG thats an 86, its like a sick old school drifter and shit".

    Spose thats what happens when you live in a bogan v8 town.

    Yeah after owning it for a year i could never sell, it would have to be a pretty special car to trade her in. i guess im more attached because i imported her myself, took 3 months of waiting, normally only 2 but she arrived in oz on the 19/12/07 and didn't come out of the compliance shop untill the 8/2/08 because of christmas shut down.

    whats your plans?/ current specs,

    mine is currently a stock jdm bigport, t50 and t series diff. tempted to upgrage to a turbo smallport, w58 and f series. i've got the motor (not turbo yet, on stand in shed) and can get a rebuild box for 700 and just got payrise so the future is lookin good.

    Also im guessing yours is stock atm would you ever want to upgrade to a bigport and/or disc brake t series, because if my plans go ahead, (im talkin couple of months) they would be for sale. but like i said thats the future and will cross that bridge when i get to it.

    i found someone who lives in townsville with a fully done up panda 86, he only got it on the road yestuday. and he said he is glad there is another 86 in townsville cause he thought he would be the only one driving around in 1.
