In total there were three AE86s on the paddock. Yesterday I already posted the purple Corolla AE86 with the BEAMS 3S-GE conversion, so how about this red Corolla AE86 with some deep dished SSR dori-dori rims?
His Corolla Levin AE86 started its life as a Swiss red panda Corolla GT and slowly he migrated it to a driftstyle hachi.

He actually downgraded its looks by removing the Vertex bumpers. Personally I like it much better with the stock bumpers back on again: mimics the grassroots JDM driftstyle much better!
BTW: The photo was a bit of over exposed on the left due to inserting the film.
The hachi is owned by my friend Oldskull and I still think it is amazing what he does to it! The SSR Dori-doris are just a small example how great you can make a hachi look!

To shoot this photo I had to lay down on my knees and I almost knocked over another photographer.
After a while the free runs were due and a long line of cars were anxiously waiting to make some rounds:

The lineup mainly consisted of Skylines, Silvias, Lancers, Integras and Civics…
Another eye catcher was this immaculate Cherry F-II at the Dutch Nissan club:

It featured some vintage 80s 15 or 16 inch wheels that looked a lot like the Borbet rims.
It also featured an oldskool chin spoiler with a vintage Datsun racing badge on it:

One of the best things I’ve seen at the JAF!
And also a Heartbreaker for Japan sticker:

Even though this Cherry is a FWD it was by far one of the most impressive cars on the paddock!
Stay tuned for more photos on an even more impressive Nissan in the next part!
