Default Trade my 03 350z drift ready with 80k miles for a stock ae86?

So this ae86 is in a super clean condition, it’s bone stock inside out and was restored by an old man from japan that lives here in Florida, his son is interested in trading it for my Z, what do you guys think, the 86 might be a money pit when it comes to parts and maintenance specially because I want to drift it, other than that it’s one of my dream cars UwU

Honest question is, is it an SR5 or GT-S? US-Spec LHD car or is it a RHD import said person from Japan brought here?

One thing we don't know: OP hasn't really said whether his Z is street-driven or not. If so, and he's planning to use the restored AE86 Corolla as a combo drift/street car, that's not a good deal IMHO. Crash standards were light years away from what the Z33 was built with.

From my perspective and being a long time Z owner and fanatic... that AE86 is butt ugly. I wouldn't trade my 350z for 5 of those.

Unless you're a die hard initial D fan and it would fulfill your fantasy like me driving a delorean due to my Back to the Future fan boy tendencies then I would say no.

Whew, Showin’ my age.... sittin’ here thinkin’ “Initial who??” Have seen many refs to rhis “Initial D” of late. Then it was explained to me that it’s a Manga serial. I’m like “Mango cereal? Ew, that doesn’t even sound like that would taste good.”

But after getting over my aged mind episode, I figured out that this Initial D was centered around drifting and that made me think about a time before it was popular here in the US.

Back then, only serious J-car enthusiasts (like me) knew about the clandestine mountain activities in Japan (and also what “JDM” really meant before the term was bastardized into a catch-all phrase, way overly used).

We Datsun (and Toyota) guys all made use of the huge college parking lot to try and perfect our hand(brake)-to-steering wheel coordination and mostly ended up wasting a lot of tire by throwing chunks of tread off our still-too-new tires on the rough asphalt. Laff...

Anyhow, not to take anything away anything from those whose favorite Z activity is drifting (because I’m keenly aware of the skills required!), I will say that my idea of drifting is what we were taught in school.... “catch the sliding tail end with a little opposite lock, settle the chassis with SLIGHT right pedal (or brakes as applicable or needed) then put down the hammer down to exit the turn.”. Not “keep the wheel at opposite lock and burn the tires off!” Hahahahaha!

I still contend that the sport was developed by Bridgestone or Yokohama. ����

Seriously, post the specs of the Z, so that someone (or me) could buy it for cash, and you could buy whatever you want.

Well restored AE86 is not something you get to beat on.

Why would you want to drift with a fully restored car?!
