1984 Toyota Corolla GTS Review

My Baby — This machine is the car of my dreams, and has been for many years. Its dated styling and simple RWD solid axle platform just add to its already strong old-school charm. Many may recognize this car from the late 90s japanese animation Initial D, as well as from Polyphony Digitals Gran Turismo series for the Sony Playstation (1,2,3). Its 1.6 liter DOHC 16 valve (the 4AG-E) Yamaha-developped engine with a lofty 7300rpm redline putting out a mere 126hp in GTS trim may be laughable by todays standards, but back in 1983, it was the most volumetrically efficient motor ever released on a production car and its 2100 lbs curb weight made it a perfect first race car for anyone wanting to learn the ropes. My car has been through 3 newer engines already, and updated 1994 high compression 20 valve Silvertop 4AG with inidividual throttle bodies ( 8000rpm) and a revised 20 valve, known as the Blacktop 4AG with lighter internals and even higher compression and redline were put to use. The car now sits gutted open, stitch and seam welded with a custom transmisison cage and firewall to house a very special and extremely rare 2004 toyota Altezza RS200z engine and 6 -speed transmission. This engine, known as the 4th generation of the 2.0 liter 16 valve DOHC Yamaha developped 3SGE ( aka BEAMS) puts out 215 hp and revs to a stratospheric 8500 rpm, all while making a song that could make Metallica green with envy.

Pros: Everything

Cons: They dont make em like this anymore

My First Car! — I got this car when it had 132,000 miles on it. It ran like a top needing only an alternator and a clutch in the 6 years I owned it. I sold it for more than I had paid for it with 203,000 miles on it and it ran for that owner until 237,000 when the wiring finally started shorting out. It still ran but was sold for parts.

Pros: 40+ miles to the gallon!  Four doors were nice.  It ran...  Always.

Cons: Small, out of style, Blue interior.

King Drifter!! — I bought this car for 400$ and it was one of my favorit cars i've driven. Like most racing fans know this s the ultimite drifting car (initial-D). For a 1984 this car had a real cool interior, fully ajustable seats and believe it or not and electric sun roof.

Pros: The best drifting car you can possibly own

Cons: Not the fastest car....needs the 4A-GZE swap

Not Too Bad Once You Establish Some Good Foot Work — Like it, it's a good start into any type of motor sport. Stylish, easy to work on, fun to drive. Gets great gas mileage, even when heavy on the throttle. Only downer is parts take awhile to get for it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Good fun, gas efficient car.

Cons: The SR5 is fun, a good beginners platform, but if a GTS is available, go for that.
