Thanks for all the comments and kind words
Recently I was thinking about acquiring a new ride because I was missing all the drifting scenes and eventually I really wanted one so bad.
Since I had a pretty tight budget and a very hard choice upon picking RWD cars, I came up with something everyone would have thought about - R33 GTS-T.
It wasn't that easy to source a perfectly unmolested (sorta) example within the hometown, which basically explains the side effect of import bans ongoing.
Well but I could find one eventually, not entirely stock at the first glance, but reasonable. A bit of price to pay but the perfect investment to build a decent grass-roots drifter.
I didn't even realize this one still retains its original two-tone paint whereas most of R33s here are at least repainted more than twice.
It's the early 'zenki' version of GTS-T, basically dubbed as 'Series 1' among enthusiasts. It's missing its iconic 5 spoke wheels, which is now a Z32 stockies. Didn't expect that.
All the bulbs work, no problems to the glass, no issues so far.
I picked this for V$ 10000 and I assume it will be a great blank page to start with.
Typical Z32 stockies wrapped in generic Dunlop tires. Basically this thing was driven by either a picky OEM+ nerd or boomer who brought this thing over when he/she retired.
Without it, I cannot justify the condition of this car.
Anyways, it is fairly well-maintained overall, with no visible flaws so far as I mentioned before.
Probably the mileage is the one thing I worry about. It's been over 25 years old since this was released, and I hear some noises but that doesn't really bother me since most of the components will be replaced or refurbished.
It's showing about 100K km to the odometer, not bad for its lifespan! And lack of driver airbags do really tell how old this thing is.
As a small gift, I put my old cup holder to the air vent
Unlike the yellow R34, this 'project car' will serve its purpose very well!
