Another danish restoration

That is an excellent question.

The plan the past 5 years was to get it where it is today. A project like this is never "done", but I'm quite happy with the way it is now.

My short term plans:
I have a set of fibre glass side skirts I will be installing within a month or so. And I have some minor repairs to do. Nothing serious. Other than that I just plan to do a lot of driving this summer as well.


My future plans:
At some point I would like to restore a 4AGE that came with the car. I have painted the block and that is about it. The rest of the engine is taken a part, stored in boxes. The engine in the car is running fine so I am not in any hurry with the extra engine.


But why don't you make your car faster??? I bet you are wondering.
Well, I have another 16 valve car waiting for me which is much faster than the AE86 ever will be. However I need a poop load of cash, for registration taxes, and some more space before anything happens regarding that. So I'll just keep the old Corolla stock for now. Oh, and the other car is a '90 Corvette C4 if you were curious ;-)


So basically I have AE86 which requires next to no maintenance which I can drive around all summer. Just the way I like it.
