    My idol

    When i got my corolla in 2000 and started working on it, as i guess everyone new it was hard as hell getting parts for this car at that time. Every part store i went to wouldn't waist their time and gave me the cold shoulder when i asked for any after-market parts. i hated when they told me to sell it and just get a civic (witch i ended up getting for my wife only because she wanted it lol.) but this was the car that turned everything around for me. Mad props to the owner of this corolla.:D:D

    He was referring to this car:
    [IMG]

    That guy is a member of GrupoToyota, TACP, and other various car clubs in Manila. He usually uses "Otaka" as he's username. I believe that was he's car back when he was still in HK.

    Now he drives an BT powered AE111 :

    Quote pnyk33's message. It has the URL of the image, the server where the image is stored doesn't allow hot-linking or direct access that's why it didn't show up.

    just a suggestion for the next time you want to post a picture. download it to your computer and upload to a site like www.tinypic.com - it's a free site, doesn't require signing up, and will guarantee you don't have this situation (or a worse one) happen again.

    I think thats awesome, good inspiration, when i had my corolla bone stock i hated the dam thing and actually hoped that i would get into a car crash and collect the insurance money and buy a truck! but mod after mod i saw potential in my little rolla. But i have to say this, you have one sweet ass ride but the scissor doors, or suicide doors what ever their called, lets just say im not a big fan, but hey to each their own. Keep it up :)

    I was inspired before, but after dumping all that money into my car, I realized I could be driving something much better by now... Don't get me wrong. It was fun building and driving it. I think I just need to upgrade now. I'm getting old. LOL :D

    Dwayne an idol? ;) I didn't even know he drove a Corolla. Oh, that's right. He bastardized it to the point where you couldn't recognize it anymore. LOL :D

    I think I finally figured out how to get it a couple months ago but didn't really persue it because I'm happy with what I have now.
