So here is the recent addition to the stable. A 1986 AE82 Twincam that cost me $200.

Basically saved it from the scrapper and the plan is to use it as a club car in events such as hillclimbs and motorkhanas. Car was cheap as it is unregistered and motor is in pieces as it was cooked by the previous owner. All the bits are there but in the boot and interior has been ripped apart as he took out his stereo. Definitely get stuck into it next year when I get back from holidays. Once I have it running i'll strip it out get club reg and see what it can do/how long it will last on the track!

Here are some pics.

P.S. everyone knows that red is faster :)

Nice work.

Look forward to seeing the progress.

I have had plenty of FWD cars. Just makes you more creative in the tyre selection & pressure department.

This will be fun... I hate front drivers but my tincan was one of the most fun cars to drive that I have owned!

Can't wait to overtake you on the back straight of winton :P

Just re-hone the bores, new bearings, new rings and run a gasket set through it. Should be nice and reliable this way.

BTW Jarrad you might have me on the straights but you'll be breathing 4AGE fumes in the twisties :P

Should be fun. I do tend to agree with Evan though, FWD wouldn't be my first choice.

LKE-020 - 5k build slowly on the way.

AW11 + SC14 - starting to dabble in weekend motorsport.

I wouldn't chose FWD intentionally but it wont pose a problem for a little lightweight, well set up car with only moderate power. FWD generally poses a problem when some decent power and weight is thrown in. So I can't see it being a problem for me.

But... if only I could have got an ae86 with twincam in similar condition for the same price!

Ive owned 3 AE82's, and they have all been awesome cars, one of my favourites!! My last twinky with mild head work suspension etc had no problem keeping up with my mates WRX. I love being able to brag about that :lol: . With minor mods and treated well, they are crazy fun cars to drive. Best of luck, Luke.

Haha thanks Stu. It'll probably be more fun to wring the neck out of then the Datto 200. Funny you mention the shed, as it seems this recent purchase is the final straw for the old man and will be staying outside! Might invest in some tarp from Bunnings me thinks.

Oh and I got the gearknob back on it today. Things can never be a straight fit can they? It seems someone 'modified' the thread on the stick. All sorted now at least.

*Small update*

Started back at work this week (where the car currently sits) and have been either way too busy to look at it or the weather simply said "NO!". However this arvo it cleared up and although it was too late to do anything on the motor sides of things I repainted the grille with red highlights :)

Next is to get a bumper for her and front lip spoiler of some description. (and of course rebuild it)
