i really dont see myself driving a silvia. sorry. ive never liked them and i dont really have a good reason for it, but i wont drive one. ditto the soarer. in fact, i have had a long standing aversion to toyotas in general.

although... i had never seen that Toy Mk II, and it looks very tempting. also i recalled my misplaced affection for 20b Eunos Cosmos. also FD.

a 'hard' car is generally acceptable for just me, but as it will be the only car, it needs to be a bit practical too. so even an automatic (shudder) is not out of the realm of possibilities.

you could an evo IX wagon? or a evo VI TME.
i'm also randomly posting cars from local jdm meets until something catches your eye

edit: i added the suzuki carry in pic 4 because it's hilarious and i want one, and the S12 gazelle/leopard in pic 5 because it's not technically a silvia

Fair enough - a fair few people have those aversions - But maybe if you drove a good one your oppinion would be changed to the dark side.

What are the actual critirium for your selection?

or you could buy a Mitsubishi Sigma wagon. They aren't even horribly expensive,

I would avoid almost any classic car in japan.

Their definition of a rebuild and restoration is extremely sub par for anything that cant be seen by the casual onlooker.

Under the car can often be a horrific mish-mash of plate steel hastily welded over cut outs of chassis. - Get anything older than 20 years inspected thoroughly is what I'm saying.

I would avoid the Suzuki Cappuccino - its f*cking miniscule and having recently ridden in one for more than 20 minutes I would never own one.

the criteria that i have is that it needs to hold 2 people, a small dog, and potentially a child seat. potentially. so a 2+2 car at a minimum. a wagon would be nice (stagea?), but not essential. 2 doors are okay. im not sure what i will have by way of parking. that is often an issue for people buying cars in japan, but i think it may be less of an issue where i will be living.

so ummm if you need someone to look after the G...i'd be more than happy =) i kinda miss mine. I mostly miss that exhaust note and the wild thrashy roaring engine that works so well. I miss the oil consumption and burning smell of it after a hard drive.

and if you want, i know someone who can take the RX off your hands too! (my buddy is a rotary freak and has an RX8 himself)

I guess if we need JDM parts you can get them? 2JZ's? RB's? haha. good luck out there man. I would say get an R34 just cause well its godzilla. I want to go skiing in japan and drive on some of those mountain roads.

my vote also goes to the R34. Its the first answer that pops into everyone's head for a reason. Why bother getting an oddity just for the sake of being different? I don't think you'd regret it .

That Accord Euro R looks like a great idea, suggested by Spastic I think.

If anything, you might want to go for a Accord wagon, or from the US perspective, a TSX wagon. You could also go for a Forester STI or a Legacy STI too, I'm sure that'd be a lot of fun. And can you bring back the car that you drove in Japan? That'd be lots of fun.

On a bit of a side note, didn't you just renovate your house in California?
