Re: Look What I Got: FX-GT

I'm not willing to share my cost, but my case was very similar to what they have listed on their site https://jdmlegends.com/pages/importation for cost breakdown of a less expensive car: Here are a couple of examples of some importations done by us in the past: $5,000 (cost of car in Japan) 1991 Toy...

Re: Look What I Got: FX-GT

I first met the JDM Legend guys years ago, long before they had the show, at a local burrito joint. Since then have stopped in and seen them at meets occasionally. Nice guys. Down to earth. So they are not celebrities to me. Just some local car buddies. I am always in awe of the cars at their shop t...

Look What I Got: FX-GT

I'm pretty sure it's the first imported to the US. I worked with JDM Legends to bring it over. It's in my garage, insured, ready to drive except waiting for title process to complete. 1990 Corolla FX-GT. Small port MAP 4AGE. Very nice aftermarket exhaust manifold, and a stereo install seem to be the...

Re: My GSI Hatch

I live in Salt Lake, but Portland is within my car purchasing radius when terms and car are favorable. I found the Nova Twin Cam just searching Google or Craigslist. Price was over $3k but it was original low mileage condition. Regret not having moved on the opportunity. I could probably be talked o...

Re: My GSI Hatch

So much stuff I would have wanted from that junkyard car :'( Mine's a 91. (I also have a white 92 sedan, but I'll either flip it or gut it.) It has all the tabs for both the spark plug cover and the valley cover, if that's what you mean. So it's a smallport cam cover. GSI was only 90-92. The Nova Tw...

Re: My GSI Hatch

I suppose there could be some question of why would anyone be enthusiastic about some dumpy GM hatchback. The Prizm GSI is actually a pretty interesting and rare bird, besides being a blast to drive and practical car. Most know the Prizm is a rebadged Corolla, built at the joint Toyota/GM NUMMI plan...

The last few weeks have been especially snowy around here, and I've tak...

My GSI Hatch

Last month a race buddy and I both found 4AGE cars in Boise and bought them. Another friend alerted him to a Prizm GSI, the very rare hatch variety, with only some cosmetic issues. Since I figured there'd be a trip to Idaho coming up, I shopped CL and discovered a pretty nice looking FX16 GTS with a...

Re: FS/FT: *MINT* ALL ORIGINAL AW11 MR2 5 SPEED $5500 BEST O

When asking $5500 for an AW11, first have a clear photos detailing everything, and second list the actual mileage. There are other question marks. I deduce the year is 87-88 because T-top, interior, tail lights, and non-LED spoiler brake light. The fact that it needed an engine replaced does not bod...

Thanks guys.

We've since dialed in our cooling system and springs and expect to be pretty competitive at our next race.
