Hey there my name is Erik I'm 21 and I'm from central California, Merced to be exact and I own a 1985 Toyota Corolla Gt-s coupe. I have absolutely LOVE my car!
I bought my car back in April and it was pretty much there but I do want to do some things to it down the line. So far I've replaced the radiator, added a clear cam gear cover, and added a secret kill switch for additional security. In late June I blew a head gasket and I just finished getting the car back on the road earlier this week with the help of my dad :mrgreen:

One of the reasons for buying this car was to finally get hands on with working on a car, learning how to drive in autocross events a track day or two and possibly drifting.

My future plans for this car are constantly changing including possible engine swaps, and the countless debate on whether or not to get some new wheels haha.

Ever since I bought my car I've slowly started getting into more older japanese cars and old school wheels and have developed respect and a fascination for them. I would say that my dream vintage japanese car might be a Hakosuka, Toyota 2000Gt, Mazda Rx3, well too many to choose from really haha.

Welcome! I think I've seen this in person. I'm up in merced once a month usually visiting family! I'll be there next labor day weekend picking up a new toy. I gotta say, very clean 86! :tu:

Are you by the R st. Exit? I know I've seen it..

Yep i'm registered, i am a bit worried since i've never driven the car this far before. But it should be fine, its probably just a bit of anxiety from just having the head rebuilt haha
