So, I'm after a performance orientated car NA or Turbo that has at least some form of racing heritage, those crazy looking wheels and flares. Budget is $0-$15000.
I'm not looking for candy paint,50 inch rims, Kenwood speakers and stuff like that. Just something that looks 'Old School' that sounds good and can get up and go if need be.
heritage.... few if any other Japanese car got crazier for real racing then these....
My little build is @ about $15,000, and that includes some pricey look good stuff (spoilers, and custom stuff)
For more specifics.... viewtopic.php?t=12393&highlight=
For some specifics... 145+ whp, 1/4 mile in 15.7 @ 89mph(being driven poorly), 30+ mpg - highway. All from 1606 cc of Toyotas twin cam 4AGE.
Btw... I cut my teeth on older muscle and pony cars, having owned a 68 GTO, 2 Shelbys(one GT-350H, and a GT-500), and a 70 428 SCJ Mach 1. I love the corolla because it can be made to handle VERY well, and go like stink doesn't require anything more than a meticulous build. The Corolla can also carry TONS.... like a spare set of tires, and tools, and jack and jackstands to and from the track... you don't have to have a trailer!!!!!
