    Australia only got the lower spec "Sprinter". It's basically a Levin without the higher level trim options, so it's missing a lot of stuff that the JDM models came with at the time. AUDM models came with a 4A-C instead of a 4A-GE, non-LSD rear end, the slit grille instead of the fog light grille, and a bunch of other stuff. Conversions aren't overly hard, but there's a lot that has to be changed in order to make equivalent to a Jap version, driveshafts need to be swapped out, needs an LSD, 4A-C to 4A-G conversion, etc. We didn't get the Trueno either. :( We are lucky in the fact that we didn't get the AE85 though, since our lower spec Sprinter still has all the same chassis reinforcement like the AE86 - AE85's are pretty lacking in that department.

    And yeah, it's always disappointing when people only see the old Corolla's a generic worthless hunk. Even FX GT's and GT Twin Cams from the late 80's and early 90's are pretty snappy, fun little cars despite being FWD. Do they have 2ZZ-GE models over in the states? Or is it all that base model crap with rear drums and stuff?

    It's massively faked around here. Not that the other two are not, but it's not like Smirnoff.

    Good luck finding a cheap one though... because all of the crap :D I'm Initial D fan, but I do liked it before watching the series, as well as many other cars :)

    I kind of like it... It's old-school, but a fairly clean design.

    Dude, you cannot get more 80's entry level sports car than a Quattro.

    Except maybe a Delta Integrale, which is basically a Quattro that shrunk a tiny bit in the wash.

    ...The AE86 is like the mech keyboard.

    Stuff that we actually thought sucked (or just plain ignored) in the 80's which you kids (and some old weirdos) now think is the greatest thing in the world due to some misplaced sense of nostalgia.

    80's Corolla was used in rally and practically invented touge driving/drifting. Kenichi Tsuchiya popularized drift with an AE86 Trueno Corolla, and to this day is his favorite car (he has a custom tuned one too).
