Same as last time:

Just picked this up. Its a Toyota Corolla AE86/ Sprinter Trueno 86. Such a beautiful car. Its *the* drift car. (Although, I adore it for reasons other than drifting. :P)

Its got around 210,000 kilometers on it, and has been in a small 20/km bumper accident, but I can BUFF that out ;). Its in a little bit of rough condition, but I have a few mechanic buddies.

Got it for $2000 CAD.

Features:
Brembo front rotors, Bradi rear rotors, Hawk HPS brake pads
whiteline stabilizer bars
carbon fiber hood
Battery put in on dec 2008.
Radiator put in jan 2009
Sparco Seat
New break lines.

Stop posting small RWD cars, you're making me want one. :P I really wish they still made cars that looked like that. Straight lines are hot. By now, most of them are half rusted away. :cry:

Hey, they'll be classic cars one day too. 8) And there will be people that liked the looks of said cars who restore them to their original beauty. Looks like you'd be interested in restoring one. :wink:

it saddens me greatly that a new ford focus, which is a "compact car", weighs around 2600 pounds. my VW cabby weighs a scant 2000 pounds, a geo convertiable weighs 1600! and some of these "small 2 door" cars arent that small! marshalls 3000gt weighs around 3100 pounds, so did my volvo stationwagon :lol:

I agree. New small cars aren't really very small... My brother's new Focus is the same length as my Jeep Grand Cherokee. :shock:

(which I'll get around to posting pictures of eventually :lol: )

Our '74 D200 is a friggin tank compared to modern cars. It's only a full-size pickup with an 8 foot bed... :lol: You could probably park a Metro or Fiesta in the back of that thing. IIRC the door plate says it weighs about 1.5 tons, and is rated for 3/4 ton payload.

we have a ford F350 dumptruck rated at 5 tons gross weight (the truck probably weighs ~2 tons, so its about a 3 ton capacity)

1991 Chevrolet Camaro RS. 93,xxx original miles. Just bought it a few days ago, can't wait to get my plate for it. Its got a 305 TBI V8 in it, ttops, clean interior. (Has some dash cracks, but hey, all these cars do) Planning on putting on some sort of glasspack; either an original cherry bomb, or a cherry bomb vortex. Will get pics up as soon as possible.
