i understand they only made 400 of these bad boys and most of the ones i've seen are bone stock.

hypothetically, would you mod your's if you had one?

personally, i'd do some bolt-ons to button up the suspension and rims. possibly an exhaust and headers but i'd keep everything else stock for the most part. and the parts i took off would get wrapped up and put into storage.

I'd mod it, but nothing that would involve cutting it up, and certainly nothing that wasn't reversible. What you described would be pretty much it.

You've pretty much summed it up. I wonder if Toyota has any in their stash.

I would slam it, get an formula atlantic 4AG for it, put on some nice low offset equip's in gold, and just drive the shit out of it!

If my name was Jesus that is.

But I would modify anything, so... :P

Yes.

Their only significance is some one off trim pieces and colours, they're not a homologation car, not a higher performance car, just a collection of high spec options.

I wouldn't hack one up, but I would have no qualms in fitting bolt in/bolt on parts, seats suspension, wheels, rolling the wheelarches, even a 20v swap...no problem.

Production cars are always compromised, there is always room to improve without drastically removing them from standard.

There are quite a few modified ones, most Japanese meeting pics show ones with wheels, suspension, interior, mechanical mods.

This?

Or this?

I'd also mod a GTS-R, A Supra Turbo-A, a BNR32 N1, any limited edition thing really, but sympathetically.

I'd have to say yes. As much as I love a stock car ae86 is too much fun not to add some mods.

Absolutely. In fact...

I'm going to get flack for this...

I'd mod a 2000gt if I had the money and privilege of owning one. Modded cars simply look and can perform nicer when tastefully modified. :D

Add a convertible option and a suitable Aki (Akiko Wakabayashi) lookalike and you got my vote.

This, although I'd do an S30 Z432R over a 2000GT.
2000GT's sound porn, but the looks just don't do it for me
