I love this mentality that anything can be saved…. for fun, and hey.. why not?

AE7X/TE7X corolla’s

so i know I’ve been neglecting the blog since the holidays, but life’s been busy. One the bright side of things I have been looking for a cheap project car, something I can really sink my …almost used another lame cliche, I want something i can be more creative with.

One car that really interests me is theE70 series corolla’s, they had the same suspension as the well known AE86 chassis corolla’s, but they had a simple body design and they were all carbureted (in north america at least). so all the nice suspension bits from the newer ae86 corolla’s fit and most the driveline stuff fits as well, and your bolt-in engine options are quite good, basically any T or A series motor is a fit.

I could go on for a while about all the sidedraft carb setup’s with different engine choices I’d like to try, as well as all the smaller wide (14×8, 13×8) wheels i’d want, all the suspension mods I’d build, and all the different body styles i’d want to try these changes on. Just for you information these corolla’s were available in 7 yes 7 different shapes.

so for once i’m gonna get off the forums and craigslist and get back to showing you some cars.

240z, First pics I’ve seen so far from JCCS

These are the first pics I’ve seen yet of the JCCS meet  and they are small and are rather cool…. a slightly “ratted” 240z that is completely tanked and is fully flush with those large flares.

WFC crew meet picks in LA.

The “wrong fitment crew” got together last Thursday night in a parkade in LA. the lighting was terrible but the cars were awesome and the fitment was killer.

The wrx in the first pick in by far my favorite of the bunch… but also the acura TL’s are really growing on me… even tho they are wrong wheel drive (for a car that size).
