View Full Version : Eoin in Sydney

23rd July 2012, 03:16 PM
Hi my name is Eoin (pronounced Owen for any Australians ect reading)
Ive been in Sydney 4 years now. I work in central qld on fly in fly out but got a good roster (10 on 4 off) so im back every second weekend.
so any way i finally have bought a var ive wanted for a long long long time! so heres the story about my ae86
I bought it on 21 July 2012 from an Australian Guy.
He had owne the car since 1990, when it was an ADM ae86 with a 4a-c engine I think. He resprayed the car in 90/91 in the original 8a8 and colourcoded the bumpers and grill. He changed the engine to a 4AGE shortly later and changed it again to a 4AGZE from an AE101. Not sure what year he did the supercharged conversion but the car has been in his garage more or less full time since 1995, it’s a very clean shell only getting out 3 or 4 times a year in good weather at a push. The car was engineered and made road legal in 2005 I think with the supercharged engine. Then in 2007 the engineers report was revised to allow for the change from supercharged to turbo. He rolled the clocks back to 00000 2.5 years ago and when I picked up the car it had 1480kms.There is a few little stone chips on it but the paint is in very good condition. It’s an unbelievable build (in my opinion anyway) by a guy who is a true ae86 enthusiast. And lucky for me I was on the hunt for one and made a call to guy who organised for me to meet the previous owner. Let me just say when he took the cover off it I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! Two weeks later I was driving it home smiling from ear to ear! He gave me all the receipts for all the bits, the original drivers manual everything you could ask for really, real nice bloke!
The only photos i have are taken with my phone so ill get better ones when i come back from work in 10 days. (she's hidden away in a garage under a cover until i get back)
