New from Kentucky...and also Japan...

Postby KYHachi » Tue Jan 29, 2013 2:57 am

Hi, everybody! My name's Grant and I was a member here a few years back as pilot_tenkawa, (I even found my 86 here back in 2008) but my password didn't work and I don't have that email address anymore...so I'm KYHachi now! Hello~! ^^

Originally from Lexington, KY, currently and for the next ~2 years living in Tokyo for graduate school and I REALLY miss my Toyotas. :(

This is my '86 GT-S, which as of today has a GZE sitting in the garage waiting to be put in...someday when I have time, money, and am back in the States. XD
Image

Not much else done to it yet; K&N Intake, TRD header, HKS Hi-Power, BC Racing coilovers, and a Corbeau seat and 4-pt harness. I just finished rebuilding the bluetop before I left, which was a bit bittersweet.

And my '87 MR2 DD, which has a silvertop waiting for it. Someday.
Image

The MR2 is bone stock except a TRD header, MR-S shifter, and Nardi TRD wheel.

I don't have any pictures of the other car, but my dad and I also have a gold '86 MR2 that is basically just getting restored, since it was in such good shape when he picked it up.

Anyway, glad to be back! And I have quite a few photos from various things I've seen around Tokyo if people are interested.

Hi,
I used to live in Okinawa, (11 years in total) and I just moved to Bardstown, KY. How is the availability of FD parts in your area? I no longer have an AE86 (I have had about 20 of them) but my son has a NICE coupe (I paid half for it and he put in half ($350 each) and it is super clean, almost finished with paint/Run Free bumpers.

FD as in RX-7, I assume? My guess is not great...I can really only speak for the Lexington area, but I've only ever seen 2-3 of them around...Always glad to know of more AE86 people in Central KY. Right now there are about a half dozen that I'm aware of, counting my own. Also, where in the world did you find a clean coupe for $700??!? I paid $2K for mine and it didn't even run...some people just have all the luck, eh? ;)

As for Japan pics, they'll be on their way soon! It's been a bit insane with classes ending last week, but now I'm free for a while. Here are some teasers/just some of my favorites.

Living in Setagaya-ku, going to school in Yotsuya. And transferring through Shinjuku Station at ~7pm every day. :evil: :evil: :evil:

How I feel after getting on and/or off the train at rush hour:

Also, slightly random, but you have no idea how much I would love to have a Levin coupe like yours. Or that I lived somewhere that had parking I could afford...Tokyo-proper is not fond of the automobile...
