This one I think is still the AE86 even though it is an 89 coupe.

why you after an 86 in the 1st place. unless you got a good size bank account and have or know someone who have good mechanical knowledge, an 86 is only going to cause no nothing but problems. basically, what you get with a stock 86 is a twenty year old metal cage with an engine/drivetrain that has seen one too many miles(i've seen couple of them driven by mexicans that is blowing out black smog out of their mufflers). you might get lucky and find someone who'll sell a renovated 86 with a big price tag, but the chances are low.

on top of that, you aren't going to do too well around the track unless you got some skills as a driver. reason is that even though the ability of the car is pretty high, its actual performance is largely base on the driver due to its lack of modern technology such as ABS, traction control, engine management(i.e. ECU, VVT), etc.

Initial D terracide. Initial D. That is why he wants an AE86. The Manga made the car into a cult classic.

There are several more just search for a 1986 corolla and any distance. You sometimes have to travel for what you want. When i bought my 1988 CRX SI I had to drive from atlanta to maryland to pick it up. It wasnt even running. I ren ted a truck and a car hitch and took it home. Changed the valve seals and it ran fine. The seals were so bad that oil was gunking up the combustion chamber. I got it fro 800 dollars. I had a ZC engine to swap but coudlnt believe that it was such an easy fix.

Anyways if you really want a AE86 you need to be willing to travel.

i know initial D gave the trueno a lot of hype. however, what i believe solidified it was when the "drift king" (the real one, not one from f & f) won a race by drifting an AE86 for the whole duration of the race, in the rain no less.

i agree with spooked, if you really want a good deal then you'll have to be willing to search far and go far instead of paying a high premium

If you find some good candidates maybe some of us could check them out for you if they are local to us. I wouldn't mind checking one out in the phoenix area for you. Just let me know.
