    the CRX with the Turbo is one of the guys from RPR.

    I know the Yellow Celica with the light covers, and I may know the guy with the Corolla 2+2.

    Other than that, this is the most serious gathering of vintage and well-done show Japanese cars I've ever seen, and perhaps ever will see again.

    Thank you B.

    wow thats hot. most of those cars make me happy.

    formby, my co-worker said that the car you posted was a mustang. I slapped him. I know its a toyota, but not sure if its an AE86 or not.

    It's a Levin, prolly a 1988. Levins "tend" to have the flat fronts. This is obviously a conversion - so the year doesn't matter. It's US AE85 underneath it all.

    Corollas of that vintage are VERY hard to grasp . Mostly what US Vin codes call "AE86" are actually AE85s in Japaneseland. The GT-Ss are AE86 only in US Kouki. Confused yet ?

    This is a Kouki Levin front end. Also, the tails from that first one were Levin. Observe the other tails on the "pop-up light" cars. Those are Trueno.

    It's a pretty common theme for Z owners to go with. It's emulating the BRE race trim cars of the era.
