It’s been 7300 days since I last heard your 4A-GE scream – Friday Video

Today’s video features a Finnish two-door Toyota Corolla GT Twin Cam 16 AE86 in Supra White and, unlike the title suggests, no 4A-GE screams in this video. Nevertheless, this video is a must-see! Let me explain why!

Carina Sightings: white Carina GT-R E-AA63 on white Volks

I’m not very fond of Volk racing rims nor led headlights on (modern) nostalgics, however I do think they suit this white Carina GT-R well:
White Carina GT-R E-AA63 with led headlights
White Carina GT-R E-AA63 with led headlights

The Carina is a five speed manual with an AE92 4AGE engine swap, controlled by a Freedom ECU. Too bad the owner did not post up more pictures, info and specs of this Carina, so it is unknown which 4AGE (smallport of bigport) it is… :(
