It definitely feels that way, doesn't it? To be honest, I'm frequently surprised by how (relatively) little bits and pieces are available for. I'm also constantly (and quietly) thinking what value for money Type R and Type RA's really represent when you look at the prices of other stuff. Especially given the motorsport pedigree and performance and experience on offer. Ten years ago, I nearly spent £9k on a Ford Racing Puma only to be put off by the relatively slow turn of pace compared to my 182 Cup. Now, I'd have to double that to get a clean car!From experience it used to be like that with ae86s six or seven years ago
A new ae86 front bumper was about 200 quid , people would cry about it and try get good second hand.
Now a new ae86 cant be bought new and youl pay about 1k if you do.
Imprezas will probably go down same road in time.
When I went through the dark days of wanting to sell this I threw myself into researching Celica GT-Four ST185's as a bit of a change. I left a 'newbie - help' message on a forum - first response simply said 'never-ending heartbreak' and the second said 'honestly don't bother'! It's been so handy throughout this project to have this forum to draw info and help from too.
