    Well here are the pics from the June 2003 meet at Charlesglen Toyota.... and the cruise out to Ghost Dam...



    This is My TE21. Just had a fresh spray bomb of Tremclad flat black. I also ugraded the front brakes to 81 brakes. Installed a reground cam, weber down draught, and a custom-ish exhaust. It has the 2 speed Toyoglide transmission and is currently sitting behind my house rusting more.

    I was the first one there... waiting for Chris to show up. Took some pics of his car (the now infamous...)

    The old 'Migso Dorifto' hood... lol


    Then this guy showed up. Sorry I don't remember your name, if you are still on here. He did some really nice etching...


    Then Chris finally showed up....

    The old hatch looks a little bit different now... lol

    Then a really nice AW11 SC showed up...


    Then a really clean TE72, I'm sorry, I forgot your name. Last I heard, IIRC, this car got smashed a little or something. I hope you are doing what you can to fix 'er up!


    More peeps show up...

    I am pretty sure this car is still in the DK community... if it is your, say something.

    Mr. Rob Ruigrok showed up with the first of his 2 race cars.

    1981 Celica with a 2TG.

    Some pics of PaulCorolla's TE27... so young and so stock...

    I think I even tried to buy it from him, he said no.

    Then this show car MK3 Supra showed up. All the way from BC somewhere...

    This car was just featured in a magazine and props to him for driving it from BC and on the cruise!

    Then some pics of my Boss at the times' car. MK2 Supra with 7M-GE swap.

    He was followed by Mr. Reg Reimer himself in his MK2 Supra with a 7M-GTE swap...

    Same color and everything... lol

    Mr. Peter Hill showed with his Rally Car. I remember him telling me that he thought that the roll cage was the only thing holding his car together... lol


    Some other random pics....


    I bet Chris remembers these rims... lol

    Lots of polishing as the story goes....

    Then Greg (JDMAE86) and his posse showed up. They rolled in hard and all together... it was awesome. LOL


    I am sure Paul (Boost/Piggity) remembers this engine... lol

    Here are a couple pics of that Twin Charged AE86 that used to always be down at Race City on Friday nights... I wonder what happened to this car... anyone know??


    Romel (77ToyCelica) and Mike (Mike-olla) then showed up with some of Romel's posse....

    Romel's Car.... Soooo Clean....


    The Silver TE72, that I bought shortly after this cruise... it's in my back yard... weeeee.... Soon, soon....

    I have a room full of parts for this thing, and now that I have a place to do the work.... oh yeah!

    My first 86!!
    That car is dead. I traded it to Darcy for my other red hatch that Special K has now.
    Darcy crashed it in a week and my dad bought it off him for $200...now the parts are living in his half finished Super 7 replica. So it's kind of still around...in spirit.

    Bet I can fix that for you... from me it wouldn't cost more than 40 bux... or you could pay me in '86 parts depending on what you've got.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    i met Alan Chan at 7-11 in richmond in 99 and met Keishin a month or two after that. Alan literally jumped out of his car to run up and ask me a bunck of questions about my car. I was driving a red AE92 at the time, but was quickly convinced that the 86 was a much more fun car. I was never on the board really but there were a few of us that would hang out regularly. Man, i can't even remember the names of some of the guys... it was too long ago. I remeber the cars though!

    it's nice to read about all this. kinda clears up some of the confusion for me.

    Interesting seeing Duane's MK3 Supra show up.

    Too bad I wasn't around back then.
