Well from the start I found her on craigslist, she was sitting in a field just south of Forth Worth. So a buddy and I head on down to check it out. When we get there shes in the back of a field and running! Took a good look over her and a haggling with the guy who owned the lot I walked away with her for 600 bucks. She made it about a mile down the to the gas station and then she died. She had been sitting for like two years so it was probably bad gas. Trailered her home that night.
came with awesome cookie monster seat covers!
A good tune up and she was on the road! A few weeks later the clutch system went out, replaced that and with the help of a buddy we cut the springs.
Next to come was to replace the banged up fender it came with, celica supra rims, wink mirror, Chaser VTX bumpers, and a badass CB whip.
A little time down the road I got bored and it was time to paint. I call it the bomber theme. >
Enjoyed national 8-6 day
Bought another ae86, a GTS this time. Took the drivetrain and then money got tight so I had to sell it.
Still I walked away with some goodies. I swapped the SR5 rear end for the GTS, still open diff but hey disk brakes!!!
Well one fun night trouble struck

Snapped the hub right off the axle, broke the bracket, and bend the panhard mount too. Well after a parts hunt I bought a LSD rear end assembly and put it in the car. Drove to work the next morning and I got a loud howling, the rear end wasnt set up by the guy I bought it from. Well pulled it all apart, slapped on new bearings and a weir solid pinion spacer. She was all good to go and the LSD felt great! New parts later we are put here
