if you dont see it crushed then i wouldn't believe it. someone else probably offered them more or an employee nabbed it.

I'm not sure what your budget is, but I saw this on the San Fernando Craigslist...

In case you want to get your Initial D on...

Shame about the red one, you had admirable intensions too. I saved a Civic GT from a breakers and have yet to get around to the resto. Hope you have alot of fun with your new one. it's obvious your heart is in the right place. :tu: :tu: :tu: :tu: :tu:

Glad to see you found another car. That one looks to be in pretty decent shape.

Congrats! Hatches are fun but I like the look of that coupe-how are you liking it so far?

I'm in love with it. It drives like a cross between a go-kart and a rabid caffienated squirrel.

It's now been a year since I've bought the coupe, and I'm totally in love with it.
I've had to track down parts (GTS coupe rear interior panels and GTS centercaps were a pain to find,) but it's been really coming along.
Now instead of a gutted track car, it's transforming into a clean and fun to drive classic.
I'm following a strange path with it. I's keeping all the great mechanical parts, such as the TRD diff and T3 coilovers, as well as the in my opinion cool JDM stuff, but am giving it a very stock fresh from the factory JDM look.
I also found a pic of the car from earlier when the previous owner had it, when it was a thrashed boro track car.

In comparison, here it is as of today!

Geeeez... She certainly does look positively yummie...!! :tu: :D
Absolutely love what you've done with her.
Personally I have to admit that I'm a sucker for the hatchback, but this might very well be the best AE86 Coupe I've ever seen.
Credit to you - that's some awesome work! :wink:

Great work on the new Corolla. Looks good now.

No interior pics?
