Another post with a picture I found at AEU86. This time it should be fairly easy to spot the AE86:
Now where did I park my Corolla GT AE86???

No I’m not dead yet… Just a bit overloaded at work. Last week finished up a Dutch MySQL User Group meetup, preparations for my presentation at the Percona Live conference (subject Performance monitoring for MySQL) in April so there was little time to post here.
Anyway, today I found this beautiful picture posted by RGEris on AEU86:
Can you count the number of hachis in this Puerto Rican Toyota cemetery?
(or should I say count the SR5s and GTS-es. )

I’ve posted up a couple of reverse fetishes so far and I even posted an AE86 Gauge cluster before (which was wrongly indicated as EUDM). Japanese like overseas stuff like the Datsun 240K badges or Renault 5 Turbos. So not surprisingly this USDM AE86 Gauge cluster from a US Toyota Corolla GT-S AE86 is currently picking up some serious money on Auctions Yahoo:
It is functional, its speedo goes all the way up to 150mph (240km/h) and it is mirrored in layout. Can you guess what the current price is???

December 29, 2012 in AE86 Trivia
Earlier I featured the AE86 GT-Apex Digi Dash and obviously it raises many AE86 enthusiasts hearts. This time I’d like to feature the normal AE86 cluster versus the AE85 cluster.
If you ever owned an AE86 (or watched too much Initial D) this cluster should be quite familar:
It is the standard JDM kouki AE86 cluster for RHD cars. Difference between the kouki and zenki cluster are the the white vertical lines and white needles that replaced the old orange needles.
Difference between JDM and UKDM gauge cluster is the speedo that reaches 150mph (240km/h). Unfortunately I haven’t found a picture of that cluster yet…
Difference between JDM and continental EUDM gauge cluster is the mirrored layout and speedo that reaches 240 km/h. Read the rest of this entry →
