    Default My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM)

    Hey guys,


    This is my 1993 Toyota Corolla SE Limited. It's a Japanese import and has all of the features you would expect out of Japan, except it's now a little different from a bog standard grocery getter


    It was completely standard when I bought it, but I've done a number of mods to it over the last 5-years of ownership so far, including a 4A-GE 20v Blacktop swap at the end of 2012. I've almost reached my goal of finding every single optional extra that was available from new, including some of the rarest items, such as the AirFantasy fragrance control system.


    This first post will remain updated with all of the current modifications and photos. To view updates in chronological order please scroll through the various posts below this one.

    The interior shots are SHARP with details of even small scratches in the dashboard plastics visible, and a pleasure to loo at of course.

    I've decided to have a break from photography for a little while. The main reason is because I've run out of places in Auckland to go, and the places I do want to go in Auckland are quite far away and gas has just risen to $2.02 per litre . Might sound like a silly excuse, but I don't want to bore you guys by taking photos from places I've already been before. My main strengths are landscape photography so I tend to steer clear of portraits or close-ups. I really should check out the latest posts in that thread. It might give me the incentive I need to start shooting again

    So the fuel prices rise there also !
    Its not at all silly.

    If you feel like sharing the landscapes of same places I don't think anyone would mind, atleast I would not. As your presence at photography thread was a great charm.

    Yeah they're rising all the time unfortunately. Starting to get expensive to go anywhere. Luckily my car is quite fuel efficient, but it doesn't take long to use up. Thanks for the kind words in regards to my presence in the photography thread. I appreciate it. I enjoyed posting in there so I really must come back

    Thank you sir. I've never polished my engine bay, but I have cleaned it with degreaser once. I usually just give it a quick wipe down every month or so to get rid of any dust or dirt, but apart from that nothing else is done to it

    Hey buddy,

    Thanks a lot for your concern. It means a lot. The earthquake happened in Christchurch which is in the South Island of NZ, and fortunately I live in Auckland which is in the North Island of New Zealand. I've been watching the footage on the news since it happened and there's a lot of damage and loss of life so far.

    There was a previous earthquake in Christchurch which happened on September the 4th 2010, but it happened at 4am in the morning, so miraculously there were no deaths. Unfortunately this time it happened at 12:51pm (lunchtime) so the city centre was jam-packed full of people having lunch and everyone was at work. So far there have been 65 confirmed deaths, but it's early stages yet so that figure is bound to rise

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families involved. Fingers crossed that another devastating earthquake like this doesn't happen again. Thank you for checking in my friend.

    Best regards,
    Scott, Kiwi-Corolla.

    Dear Scott,

    I am so relieved to know that you are okay. Thank you for the update, and I hope that rescuers are able to minimize further loss of life. Material damages are nothing in comparison.

    Please keep us updated. Thanks!

    VC.
