JAF2013: The AEU86 spot and more AE86s!

Yesterday I already shared this photo:
JAF 2013: The six hachis of AEU86
And the reason for reposting it now is that I actually forgot to take photos of two important hachis: Oldskull’s and Mark’s three door hatchback Levins! This one does include Oldskull’s AE86 but not Mark’s.

Anyway, ChiKin was by far the youngest of the group but managed to attract most attention with his white panda zenki Sprinter Trueno GT Apex: Continue reading

JAF 2013: The first impression

Unlike last year I wasn’t a visitor at the Japanse Autosport Festival in Assen as my Carina was present on the paddock between the various sportscars. This year AEU86 decided to ask for a club spot on the paddock and we were granted a large spot in the mid-center of the paddock! Awesome!
We managed to get a total of six Hachis and two Carinas. A small impression of our spot:

Cars from left to right: Corolla GT (4AGE+ITB), Corolla GT (3S-GE BEAMS), Corolla GT (3S-GE BEAMS), JDM Sprinter Trueno GT Apex (4AGE), Corolla GT (4AGE)
Another panda red Corolla GT AE86 was parked behind the Carinas (behind the banner) and apart from ours another four Hachis were present atthe Toyota Noord club so altogether ten hachis were present outnumbering various other cars like the Mitsubishi Lancer Turbos and such. Not bad at all!

I did not have a lot of time to walk around and shoot pictures of all the cars, but at least I got a decent share of the most impressive cars. One that immediately drew my attention was this pink Impreza: Continue reading

Count the hachis!

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. 😉 )

WTF: Rauh Welt Levin for sale!

I’m still owner/admin of AEU86 where all European hachi owners end up sometime, so I was quite surprised to find this rare beast on my forum:
Rauh Welt Begriff Levin AE86 4AGTE for sale!
The car was built by Nakai-san from Rauh Welt Begriff (RWB) where he used the Run-Free kit as a basis for its styling.

It allows the Work Meisters to fit nicely under the wider arches: Continue reading
