I've come to the conclusion that none of you have any experience in real life or know how to enjoy driving other types of cars. I only spent 25 years driving manual transmission cars on the road and on the track when I was young. I'm sure you guys have driven many more years than I. I started driving manual transmissions with a Renault Dauphine back in 1963. I couldn't afford much, so I actually built a body, and two engines myself from the junkyard. It was a great car for college. Then I moved to a Volvo P1800 where I rebuilt the engine and suspension which was a 4 speed. Then I moved to a 1969 Triumph TR6 which only came in a manual transmission. Then to a Honda Accord 5 speed and then to a series of Porsches, both manual and auto. On the auto side, I've owned BMW's, Mercedes, a Buick, and my current SUV, the first I've owned. So when you guys have had as much experience as me driving manuals, please let me know....

All of your BS aside, I love driving manual transmissions at the right time and the right place. I also really like driving my automatic SUV on a long trip, listening to great music, not hearing a bunch of road noise, and getting a great view of the road in a very safe vehicle. I enjoy using paddle shifters as well with a very good DCT trans. I just enjoy cars and recognize that each of them have their pluses. It's too bad you guys are so parochial in your views and feel that you have to defend one particular type of car just because someone else has an objective view.

I'm certainly not an expert on the 86, not even close. Nor, do I want to be. I just like driving the car. By the way, just because you are not sensitive enough to recognize changes in handling, it doesn't mean other aren't. And I don't track cars anymore and haven't in the past decade. But the vast majority of 86 buyers don't track or mod their cars either. You are in the very small minority....


Why would you attack others and then share personal information? The information you are sharing makes me feel that you want to sound knowledgeable and have some sort of acceptance. If this is the case; there are ways of sharing your personal opinion and disagreeing with other members without sounding as condescending as you come off.


Of course some people here have as much (if not way more) experience as you driving.

Any car can be a daily, its how you personally use it as a daily determines whether the car is right for you as a daily.

A sportscar like the twins will likely fit the bill enough for young people or couples.

To me, its a second car that's practical enough to be a daily driver.

Thanks guys. I bought it in May 1999 for $6000! Haha. Around roughly 4000 were build over a 2 year span. Wouldn't surprise me if half that number is all that's left.

I bought the BRZ as a fun weekend car, so having a small suv as a daily/beater just made sense. (Considering I already owned it and it's paid off so it really doesn't cost me anything)

That things pretty bad ass! I've been planning out a 3rd gen 4runner build to use for some light off-roading and camping trips.
Put a blanket down takes care of most sap/needles. Good luck with the 3rd Gen 4Runner; those have been spiking in value recently. Especially the manual transmission variety.

Very rare indeed and whenever I see one it's always teal color.
