That seems like a rare car alright. Too rare to be used as a drift car (find a good Skyline for that, hehe) The oil cooler may be a bit unusual, though it is found on M20s.

I think I'd go the conservative route on that As to VIN checks, they seem to be nigh impossible to find for free. How about previous owners and records they may have kept?

And so it will go on, more and more! I'd make sure to know when the timing belt was last changed.

get us some pix of engine bay and body, along with the vin and we'll help you figure out what kind of beast you have.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
