Toyota Corolla AE86 on SSR MKII & SSR MKIII & More

Toyota Corolla AE86 on SSR MKII
A friend and I were having a conversation on the Toyota Corolla AE86′s and started looking for the best examples. The first 86 to come to mind was this one I saw on Club4AG. The owner did a full build on it, and surprisingly it is actually an SR5 model. The owner also has had myriad of wheels for it; SSR MKII, SSR MKIII, 2 sets of Volk Racing TE37, and Weds Sport MA86. I personally think the MKII’s give it that best old school look.

Friends Rides – Soaring Happi Lexus SC300 on Work VS-XX

Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19" Work VS-XX
In japan the SC300 as we know it is referred to as the “Soarer”. I’m guessing it means to soar, or fly, smoothly like a bird. This
Soarer is owned and built by my good friend Mistahappi. I’ve known MH for a while now and he is one smooth and happy guy
if I’ve ever met one. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX
Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19" Work VS-XX
MH started out with a mint and rare 5 speed Lexus SC300. 5 speed SC300 are very hard to come by, I know he waited a while
to pounce on the right specimen. He soon after purchased a Auto Couture body kit, 19″ Work VS-XX wheels, and brought the
car down with a Universal Air, air bag system. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX
Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19" Work VS-XX
Let me tell you, I have ridden in this car, it is smooth and it attracts attention. You might
think low profile tires and bags would provide a suspect ride, but like I said, this car is
smooth! This car may not have many mods, but it has the right combination of parts to
be daily driven, and to turn heads. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX
