    Konichiwa from Okinawa

    Hey all, got stuck working on Oki for the next 3 years so I bought a souvenir to take with me when I leave, and of course restore while I'm here, my hachiroku


    AE86 Levin coupe
    4AGZE, big crank pulley 14psi FMIC
    Limited slip
    6 Point roll cage
    cusco suspension, MM, TM, strut bars

    A few shots... the white hatch is my buddy TAKAs, its in the body shop getting a facelift right now.






    What work looks like on the weekends. Me and couple 180's gettin prepped for the night.




    My gas door is gone because it off getting paint matched to finish up the front




    A little messy inside, its my daily driver



    Thanks for looking

    All you have to do is join the Marine Corps and become a GSE mechanic... I cant believe they pay me to do this.

    How much yen was the car if you don't mind me asking?

    Did you buy it from a private seller or from a dealership? I've heard that almost all car sales are done through dealerships but recently private sales are becoming more common.

    If you have any pics of random nice cars you see on the streets be sure to make a thread and post.

    350,000 ? from a private seller, I've seen a few at dealerships just not in my price range, I looked for 7 months before I bought this one.
    I can start a thread, there are some cool cars out here.
