Ladies and Gentlemen,
Its my honor to show you Japanese initialD anime movie series drift car (Panda kouki AE 86) here in Lhr Pk. Senior members of PW found the car and restored it. Then it was misused and I had to fix it back with help of few PW serior members, friends.
Due to a difficult task it was not possible to finish work on 23th March carshow, It took more than 4 months to get things in order and working in car.
The car drove me nuts to restore and modify but its worth it after spending money on it. I could had easy bought a local corolla and fixed that up for my needs i even had a rwd starlet project in mind but Trueno being my first car ever bought in late 80's took first priority buying a car again.
A little history of levin and trueno. there were 2 identical cars.
Toyota Corolla Levin and Toyota Sprinter Trueno .
Due to high cost of manufacture for GT models and a broad range of other Toyota cars made and sold, the cost of manufacture of these small coupes went higher than bigger models of Toyotas so eventually these were discontinued.
The Last of rear wheel drive 2 door Levin or Sprinter Trueno was sold in USA in 1987 as a GT-S.
In 1988 GT-S was made front wheel drive. I copied the designs of 1987 Treuno as the body frame is same for 84 to 87. small rwd cars were more expensive to make than fwd cars and automotive industry shifted to fwd vehicles. Now we get cheaper cars at higher price. crazy!
Unfortunately the local import authorities do not allow citizens to import these anymore from japan or elsewhere so we have to assemble parts here on previously imported cars. what a problem! lol. but its a problem we have to face if we want the InitialD car in Pk and we want Sprinter Trueno. why not, if world has it, why Pk is behind?
I believe a couple of cars in Khi are under restore work too to form a chapter of Club4ag
