car junkie with commitment issues

the ae86 true modern classic

you can never have enough ae86 in a car blog… so cut it, chew it, and like it.

these cars are the modern savior of the japanese rwd scene in north america. full stop.

A fabulous, responsive, very high revving motor, rear wheel drive, and a very willing and tunable chassis make this car hard not to love…. BTW 1985-1987 corolla gt-s, hachi-roku (hachi for short), ae86, levin, and trueno essentially all mean the same thing.

Like this red one with the classic start shark wheels, along with the levin front end, and the shorty jdm bumpers

this car has the japanese trueno front end, basically the same as ours in north america but with a different bumper

many hachi’s seem to always be half assembled, or somewhat abused…. but that is much of the love we have for these cars…. they can take sooo much abuse and still perform the way they should, they need to be used.

I like the coupes look but I think I prefer owning the hatchback better
