Ive got some good news, and some bad news.
First, i sold the AE86.
Well, not much to say about it. I had a couple of reasons, the main cause was that i ran cold in the project. It was a coulpe of great years driving it, but now its gone.
That was the bad news.. Crying

The good news is that i also have sold the Carina and bought myself a Sportsvan 2.2TD anno 2001. Wave

A sportsvan??? Think it's called a Avensis Verso here... And you call that the good news? Angry



Seriously: I hate too see another hachi owner letting their hachi go, but ofcourse you have your reasons for it and I think most of us have been in the position doubting to keep the hachi or sell it off... Undecided

1982 - TA60 Carina 4dr sedan - fun cruiser
1983 - AE86 Sprinter Trueno - import project
2013 - Honda Civic sport - daily driver
2004 - AEU86 dot ORG - daily domain

leaving the AE86 is like leaving behind hard assed drugs! It ain't easy... sure a few have done it... but if the AE86 was truly a part of you... then it remains inside... it may not be now... it may not be a week, or a month from now... but mark my words... you WILL be interested again... and understand that it is a habit that requires its "fix".

One of the reasons i sold it, was because of the expensive maintence, the lack of used parts and because of the expensivity of keeping it rolling.
I have just used a fortune on restauration, and still it needed to get the engine and tranny fixed.
Another reason is that we needed a bigger car, and the Sportsvan is about twice the price of the carina in insurance and taxes. I simply couldnt afford to pay insurance and taxes on the Corolla..

Fortunatly i sold it to a buddy of mine, so i will still see it once and awhile. Confused Hes a mechanic and has promised to take good care of it.

Its not the Avensis Verso, its the older Sportsvan - with rearseats its called Picnic. And YES, its very good news! It drives 10 times better than the Carina, it got EVERYTHING in electrics and a big boot where we can keep the dog :wink:

Kim understands my reasons, so no need for him to beat me up. The only thing i regret about selling it, is that i didnt get to drive it while it was finished. All the hours i put into it doesnt matter, i learned alot working on the car. Thats worth alot too :wink:
