French AE86 Corolla Levin & JDM AE86 Sprinter Trueno

Postby C.M Kyo » Tue Jul 29, 2014 7:25 am

Hello !

It's been a long time since I came to this forum. I tried to find my old password or get a new one but it did not work ^^

Here's a little introduction : My name is Cedric, I'm 29, I live in France and I owned for almost 10 years a French Corolla GT AE86 ( Corolla Levin ), and for almost 5 years a JDM Sprinter Trueno AE86. I spend lot of time ( and money ) on my 86's. The Levin is cleary built for the "touge", the Trueno is more a "collector" car. My father is a mechanic, he helped me building these 2 cars.

Besides that, I love Japanese culture, manga, anime, wrestling and I collect Japanese video games ^^

Here's somes pictures of my cars with their specs :
