Toyota Hilux on Volk Racing TE37V
This Old School Toyota Hilux was a very notable display at this years Japanese Classic Car Show. Although an unfinished truck, it was turning heads all day. It as also one of the few trucks in attendance – Old School Toyota Hilux on JDM Volk Racing TE37V

This truck was sitting on a fat set of JDM 17″ Volk Racing TE37v in Bronze. If you didn't know the “v” in TE37v stands for vintage, and this is a very appropriate use for it. New school wheels for Old School Rides. – Old School Toyota Hilux on JDM Volk Racing TE37V

Check out the lips on the TE37v's, really nice. The front is tucking a lot of tire, its a 235/45/17 and thats reletively a lot of rubber inside the small fender on these trucks. – Old School Toyota Hilux on JDM Volk Racing TE37V

Even with no bed, this truck has a menacing stance. To me, this truck brings a new meaning to the term Monster Truck – Old School Toyota Hilux on JDM Volk Racing TE37V

Project Mu Brakes on a Currie Axle with in multi link setup, that's a super nice setup. That Rear end setup coupled with the JZ Power, I wonder if this will be a Drag Truck. – Old School Toyota Hilux on JDM Volk Racing TE37V

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.
