    Interesting Facts:
    Head Lights hooked up to Battery to prevent "Dimming" at high revs/power. (Prob very Common but I’ve never seen it)
    Very Unique but original Toyota Visors on my door mirrors.
    This car spent a lot of its life in Japan doing light track work and only used on occasional track days. About 160km in 25 years.... pretty good... I’ve since don’t roughly 25-30km

    This is number two of the three AE86’s I've owned. I originally started out with a white ADM (sold), then bought the GTV from Japan then Purchased the Trueno as the third (sold to Vernon). I have learnt heaps of things dealing with these cars over the years.

    Few pictures at various stages of ownership.
    The White Levin is my first sprinter (sold and written off by the new owner ), completely stock then added 4age, kings and exhaust etc.
    And a few shots of my minty Trueno (Now looked after by Vernon)

    Your car looks awesome...better everytime I see it.

    BTW, one of the recaros is in, waiting on the seat rail to come from eastern states so that I can mount the passenger side into the car!
