    Corolla Gts — This is the car I autocrossed the most - the car that I went to driving school the most - this is the car that intruduced me to the tuner scene before there was a tuner scene. Incredible car for the stage of life I was in - looking for thrills but not looking for trouble - looking for fun without having to spend and without compromising on quality and reliability. Not fast by a long shot but one of the most FUN cars I've owned and the car that gave me my first real lesson in "performance driving" (not the same as merely driving fast, an idiot can do that)

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

    Pros: THE Drift car before the term was ever said - THE Tuner car before there was a tuner scene - loved it for the man-machine interface, you wont get this much of it in anything short of a Caterham

    Cons: not fast, not cool, not worth anything - Fast N Furious series ruined it for Jap/JDM fans - only real enthusiast even know what man-machine interface means (much less appreciates it like I do)

    1986 Toyota Corolla (ae86) Sr5 — Since it's an SR5, this car is much more economical than it is a performer. In a word, performance for anything other than drifting is absymal. Being a Toyota, build quality is excellent. Appearance isn't the greatest stock- it has a pretty high ride height, and could really use a lip on the trunk lid. Cost of ownership is fantastic: I bought it for $400, and am only $300 more into it for maintenance a year later. If it's raining, there is no other car I'd rather drive. A wet offramp makes me feel like Tsuchiya every time.

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

    Pros: Cheap to own, pretty reliable. Fun to drift.

    Cons: Some parts are hard to find, and it's slow as hell stock.

    If I Could Find One Again In Tip Top Shape. — the rolla had power potential, when i build the engine myself had more power. braking wass exceptional, handling was like no other car i had driven. no words can describe the they the car handled. wish i still had it. fun factor was 10 out 10.

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

    Pros: nothing feels like a well built car. gotta love old school.

    Cons: nothing. hard to find in good shape.

    Great First Car, Easy To Drive And Not Too Ugly — easy to drive, comfortable, lots of space in the boot and lots of leg room. great mileage per litre, low maintenance and because of its abundance there are heaps of spare parts at your local wrecker. Parts at an auto shop are quite cheap too, plus the labour side of things is quite easy too. I do my own oil and filter changes, plus spark plugs etc

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: easy to drive, comfortable, lots of space in the boot and lots of leg room

    Cons: old car= no power steering or air con

That goes for the performance to! =) It isn't heavy, wheels are on the edges of the side, great maneuvre capabilities (if your suspension's alright...), gearbox is great!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: feeling from and almost old timer. GREAT!

    Cons: Old design, rusty body

    Ae86 — If you dont enjoy working on your car than this is not for you. It seems like i always have something to do on this car and in fact it has bee sitting for the last month while i try to find parts. brake master cylinders go bad along with combination valves. another thing to watch out for is the shocks coming loose going down the road you will notice a rattling noise over any bump at all. Cost is extremely cheap as far as ownership you can get a good one for about 2000 and gas lasts forever. most importantly is the fun factor this car is amazing fun as long as you care about handling and not speed. the engine revs like no tomorrow and when drifted correctly will bounce off of the tach and still create power.

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

    Pros: Fun, Small, Light weight, RWD, most are manual

    Cons: No A/C, no power steering, solid rear axle, hard to find

    Cheap And Built Like A Tank — It's a 1986 Corolla Diesel what more can I say: It is an awesome car besides the power steering which it does not have. Other wise it is a quick non turbo diesel beaten two Corsa's, Fiesta, Renault 19, and a Mazda 323 TDI. Awesome Car!!!

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

    Pros: Because it's indistructable

    Cons: The lack of power steering
