Default Denoobin' myself.

Hey there, I'm Sam. I live here in Calgary, in Canada. I'm a technician at a nice Toyota dealership around these parts and as such, I've got myself a couple Toyotas.

I'm looking to ditch my AE86 and pick up a Miata for a daily instead. The Corolla is fun but the 1970s suspension is so lame. Mcpherson strut and 4 link solid axle? Come on Toyota.

Here are my cars. First is a JDM Toyota Aristo, same body as a GS300 but lots more bells and whistles, and they came stock with the twin turbo 3.0L out of the mk4 Supra. Put down a ---- ton of power with just bolt ons and boost turned up. Keep in mind that's through an auto tranny, so it's about 400 at the crank.





And second is my reliable daily driver, an 85 Corolla GTS. The one Japanese kids deliver tofu in. Hawk pads, stainless lines, oem rotors, tokico HP struts, 2" lowering springs, intake, header, exhaust, yada yada. Basic stuff to make it more fun to drive. For sale as of Tuesday, hopefully I get around what I'm asking.

Thanks for the welcome.

No luck with the sale yet after about a week. Only people coming by to see it are kids with no money offering like, a grand, or old guys who didn't realize a 30 year old Toyota might have some rust.
