Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Youtube: legend of AE86

Just saw a new video posted by one of the people I’m following on youtube called “Legend of AE86“.

Unfortunately the poster does not allow embedding of his videos, so I can only place a link to the video and show you this screenshot:

The video itself does not contain any music (a bit boring!) but it does tell you the history of Levin and Trueno models and interviews some key persons in the AE86 world (who are they?). For instance I didn’t know for instance that the TE37 was the Levin and the TE47 the Trueno model. Funny they only did that with these two models, while all others (TE27, TE71, AE86 etc.) all have the same model code. One of the people interviewed is a mechanic/driver during the 80s and did drive the AE86 a lot.

Nice to see a documentary without the well known people, like Keiichi Tsuchiya for instance, and seeing some other information about the AE86 as well. ;)

In case you haven’t found the video yet, you can find it here:

    Actually the TE-27, TE-37 has Levin and Trueno version. What i know Levin was for export and Trueno was for Japan market only. Once it reached TE-47 there is no Levin moniker for this. Which is strange. I have this TE-47 and its a Trueno Sprinter.
