Well, after a lot of working, school and moving 3 times, I have finally bought another AE86. This one will be my daily driver as it is overly stock. Here are some pics, more to come!
I don't have many plans but to drive it. The previous owner sent a laundry list of what he has done to the car. Replacing things with Toyota parts, even the exhaust from Toyota. The car is oddly clean and has very minor things that need to be taken care of. i.e Idling at 1500. those will be small projects that i'll be working on during my other 86's Beams Swap Seen Here: viewtopic.php?t=12811

Dont mind my Wife :lol: I have fender trim to put on the car, I knew they would come in handy someday!

I also plan to replace all of the gauge bulbs to liven up the display a bit.

Here you'll see where I plan to clean up the carpet and re-dye it. It smells like cats lol!

Things to work on: If you look khere you will see evidence that the car has been sitting. There is mildew in multiple places of the car. SO I have to get it cleaned up to ensure that it does not get worse.

That's a nice one. Is it authentic GTS or is it a conversion?

It is an authentic GTS that I got from Texas. I haven't had much time for building this since a majority of my time gets sucked up between work, school and the Beams build. So ive only done small things like oil changes and I'll be rebuilding the shifter soon as well.

Congrats. Excellent find. I know the temptation could be high to modify but please leave it stock not many left like this.

Photobucket is holding everyones photos hostage by saying we violated their policy on 3rd party hosting....like what you see on this site....so now in order to even get your photos back you have to pay them...it's BS. Dont know how much they want though. Just wish we could upload our pics here....

Wow!

That is some serious suckage. Glad I don't use photobucket. It's a good thing though, since club4ag already had 50-60% broken image links across the forum :x :x
