    Just seem like an ideal choice, plenty of engine displacement, turbo, AWD, comfy, rare, attractive to look at IMHO. More of a grand tourer but that would make it comfy as a daily too.

    You'll be suggesting Z32 300ZXs next!

      After not seeing any for years I've seen a couple of GTOs in the past week. They do have a lot of road presence.

        Wait what? You had a GT3?

          ‘Mine’, I went halves at the time with my old man (he had sold his business, I had a big liability payout for medical reasons).
          reason we sold it is that we took it to the track three times and promptly realised we were idiots and relegated it to street car duties for a year before selling.
          could never be comfortable driving something of that value around.

            So it was a while ago then?

              Aaages. Before I had the white martini car (that car was a direct outcome of that experience)

                What would be a decent investment at a cheaper price would be a DC2 Integra Type R.

                None on gumtree, none on carsales. Though there's hundreds of 'WTB' ads for them. I'm assuming they were all written off in the early 2000s?

                  A mate of mine has one, or had one last time I caught up with him many years ago. Probably worth good money these days.

                    I guess it depends where you live and what your commute consists of, but for me these days a daily has to be an auto.

                      I'll be dailying a manual on the Coorparoo/Cleveland run until I can't buy one anymore.

                      I can see your point on an inner city commute though. I'd probably go hybrid or electric if I had to work in the city every day (actually I'd probably ride my bike, but anyway).

                        My morning commute is about 8.5kms and can take anywhere from 25-40 mins.

                        No shower in my building so riding is out of the question. Plus I go and see people during the day, so need the car.

                          Yep, that would suck in a manual. Mine is 25km in 25-30 minutes.

                            Do people honestly think these prices for VF HSV's (particularly LSA powered ones), any real late model V8 Ford / Holden, S15's, Hondas etc are sustainable ?

                            A tidy VN SS was sub 15 for ages, crackheads now want 40. I saw a very nice VS Clubsport listed today at 52k. What the fuck, it's a 15k car at best ?

                            Even my LSA R8 Clubby is now insured for over 80k when a year ago i had to argue to have it insured for 65.

                            This shit can't go on forever surely...

                              Nah, bubble has to burst soon.

                              I will predict when the jobseeker, jobkeeper and super runs out, or the corona measures drag into next year and more people are affected that can't access money to live on.

                              I would hazard a guess that a lot of the money being spent is money that would have spent elsewhere if there were no restrictions.

                                People like me for example. Covid didn’t effect me, in fact we are busier than ever, I work from home now, no overseas holiday. I got all this disposable income and no where to go.... I’m currently rexy hunting.
