    Ae86 — I bought this car to be turned into a drift car. I know its not as sleek as an S15 or my FD3S but atleast its somthing I can take to autocrossing and drifting and track days and know if I post a good time it was all me and not some magical awd system or computer control system. If I make mistakes the car will let me know. NO ABS NO TRACTION CONTROL NO STABLITY CONTROL! NO AWD! NO ECU CONTROLING THE CAR! I LIKE!

    Pros: Great fun to drive, oldskool, can keep up with fanciest cars in the corners with correct tuning.  Many famous Japanese racers started off their racing carriers driving this humble little gem of a car.  

    Cons: Hard to find replacement oem parts like weatherstripping and other tiny things that keep it sitting in my garage naked and stripped to the chassis

    Toyota's Mona Lisa — best set up for a car in my opinion. great weight balance, design (what car still looks good 23 years after it's debut?), and mechanical endurance.

    Pros: it's a toyota, rwd, great handling, lsd available.

    Cons: USDM is quite heavier and it's not the quickest car out there.

    Blah — Love this car, deffinately not the car for picking up chicks but i feel soo in touch when i drive it. Its easy to get it sideways and keep it sideways. handling is responsive for a 25 yr old car, its light weight makes it nimble. The engine in this thing revs up fast, very reliable but lacks in the torque department. Its noisy, ride sucks, and the car could use some power The verdict? Dollar for dollar this is the car that will let u have the most fun and not get you in trouble :)

    Pros: blah

    Cons: blah blah

    Drifter — Great learner car for the great art of Drifting. Suspension is the only true weakness but that can be upgraded. The 4age engine is invincible and with disk brakes on front and rear it has excellent braking. All in all, a very fun little RWD car

    Pros: RWD, light, reliable

    Cons: Bad stock suspension

    Unbelievably Reliable Car 300000 Kms And Replaced 2 Timing Belts In 30 Mins. On The Sideof The Road — The only issue I had with it was the driver side rear coil spring cracked (300000 kms not bad!) Had altinator brushes replaces and good as new ($2.50). Still has power but it is starting to show blue and uses 1 litre for 3000 kms.

    Tougekaze: A Car For All Seasons — It's iconic. It makes me feel like an individual instead of just one of the sheep; I'm able to handle its routine maintenance and it is very economical to operate; it handles pretty well and accelerates even better; it gets great gas mileage; it only costs me $225.00 a year to insure; not a month rolls by when some young guy doesn't leave a note on my windshield or strike up a conversation with me and offers to buy it. For the complete modifications, visit at http://1985ae86hatchback.blogspot.com

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

    Pros: What can I say- I've owned it since new, 28 years this May of 2013, unless the Mayans are right and it never makes it to it's anniversary!

    Cons: Most women, especially in my age group, don't like it.  They say it's sort of loud and a "kidney kicker", Bish, bish, bish, lol!

    The Ae86 — AE86 Corolla GTS, it was my all time favorite car when i was teenager, in fact i still love this car!!! It equipped with a 4AGE 1.6L engine, rear wheel drive, with the TVIS Toyota variable intake system, the air intake will increase at 4350rpm, engine sound will be more fierce after the 4350rpm mark. Acceleration is kind of slow, brake is ok, and handling was outstanding due to good balance of the car, i love to keep full throttle entering the corner (due to it is underpower), and the car can drift a little bit out of the corner which you will never got this experience from a FWD Civic. The build quality is good, i used my AE86 as a part time courier car, it had done over 180000miles on it without any major problem. The styling is good, it looks like it never got old. Gas mileage is great. Its just so fun to drive this little car! I owned three AE86 during my teenager period, I really missed it!!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling

    Cons: a little bit underpower
