    reunited with an old friend

    hey guys its been a while since i posted, been really busy with work and projects...well i contacted the owner whom i sold the car too and negotiated a trade for a pretty nasty little eg hatch ive been tracking in the nasa texas circuit all year. its not really to nostalgic being an 85 and all but i thought it was worth sharing






    i knew the minute i sold it id regret it, but this one had a happy ending..it returned home literally perfect..no extra scratches or dings, he even replaced the dirty tank with a nos replacement and fitted a greddy dd exhaust. must have been carma...well the 20v is on its way out and into another toyota lovers engine bay to make way for the f20c...i track my cars alot and it really needs to be more competitive than what the motor is capable of...ill post pics as they come....looks really nice at home chillin next to my mx72 wagon

    Very clean! I had an opportunity to get a car I sold and regretted back a few years ago (s13 rhd silvia conversion) and when I went to check it out, it had been tooooootally f'd up. Rattle can two-tone, ziptie stitched aero, the works . Nice to see yours was taken care of!

    i followed my old Z31 around for a a while after i traded for my wagon. best part was, i traded it to some close friends so i still got to drive it. i LOVED that car. then they traded it for a motor, and the guy totaled it after a week

    Why is it that every new AE86 owner we get here thinks their car isn't nostalgic enough? :P

    Glad your baby is finally home again. 8)
