    An 86 isn't something you buy, it's something you earn.

    did the US actually get a "AE86"? i know the 1986-87 Toyota Corolla is similiar to the Trueno. but is the chassis code & engine the same as the JDM Trueno?

    I hold a great respect for the 86 and I believe very few people deserve to drive one. I don't even think I'm worthy.

    i think there was some specs turned down because of emmision stuff, but it is almost just like the JDM trueno, but it did come to america and back then my uncle had one he said it was popular because it was a little peppy hatch back with speed

    AE86 = 1985-87 Toyota Corolla GT-S
    This is the Trueno (pop-up headlights) only, Levins (fixed headlights) were not sold in the states.
    Not all of them come with an LSD so be sure to check.

    You can probably find some at the Club4AG classifieds:

    AE86's are sweet..but I'd rather have a 180sx or a Silvia. (or since I'm in the US..a 240sx)

    There were no automatic AE86s in the US, only AE85s. Very different animal.

    What a great opportunity to show off our little old Corolla... :D

    It's a fun car to drive, very very easy to drive too. Not quite as fun as the AW11 MR2 but easier and less 'demanding' of its driver. I wish it was mine, it'd make a great daily driver.

    I wish my neighborhood looked as nice as Cudamans... then I wouldn't have to worry about the occasional meth lab blowing up or someone coming by and slashing my tires. That way I could own a real car...

    Heh, nice one perg. :)

    Yeah, that looks like a nice neighborhood doesn't it? Unfortunately it's right next to a slummy area and we're in the city with the largest auto theft rate per capita. My MR2 was broken into, had two broken windows and the stereo was stolen, and then later they tried to break in again and ruined my door lock and bent the A-pillar. They also nearly destroyed one of the door locks in the AE86.

    I've since moved away from there. Same city but a different area, now I'm in a gated community. Hopefully this will be a little nicer.

    Man, that must have been hella scary! Especially what they did to your AE86. Do they even know what they are messing with?!?! :mad:

    They didn't get inside the AE86 though... not that there's anything worth taking in it (half a bottle of brake fluid maybe!). They really did a number on the '2 though...
