Being an owner of both the Caldina and the Stagea, the Stagea is a better car
Yeah, logic draws me towards the stagea, but curiosity of the obscure pulls me towards the "gt4 in a Cardigan".
At this point in time, logic and an anxiety of having to try and find parts for a caldina, make the stagea the family hauler of choice.
Hmm now I want a stagea again

You could go over the top obscure and a Crown.
1J-JZE should be fairly trouble free, leaving you money to fix electrics.
$6k max should be a bit of a stretch. Though I sold my '88 1GGZE Wagon for $3k a few years back.

Fuck those crown wagons are sexual. But the concept of trying to find something like headlight in AUS makes me want to curl up in the fetal position.
For example, they're known to chew wheel bearings. I've done 3 on mine in about as many years, and they're reasonably hard to get. The most reliable source I've found is Febest on eBay.
Stagea also known for wheel bearings, but they're the same as a recent Maxima.
A lot of shit on the M35 is the same as a lot of Aussie delivered stuff, actually.

Stag is the way to go.
Just make sure it's been looked after.

^Now we need a guinea pig to give it a go, lol.
As long as its not a besanko type of device I'd give it a go haha
Or slap on an xf throttle body and cable. Perfect.
Thanks on the shift kit. I thought the apex throttle controller was just an interceptor type thing, I.e.didn't really change how the delay was in there, just made computer think you were putting more throttle down. I.e. throttle body doesn't follow throttle position like a cable throttle would.
I'm all for big hammers but I'd rather keep the electronic throttle and just get it linear with the throttle pedal position without delay.
