With no rear wing:

With massive flares:

Totally stock:

JDM style:

and of course, displaying 112hp of pure fury!!!!

It appears that the 4AGE will not withstand a 10,000 rpm redline, although it did drive me home but with somewhat less compression thanks to a broken ring

Now don't get me wrong... I seriously dig AW11 goodness. However, topless X1/9s with flares are the hot ticket.

Nice. nice. and very nice. thank you very much. Pinchvalve you are fuggin awesome. Zipty you're car is sick as always, very jealous of that little machine. Good to see so many aw11s here.

I have to agree they're fun at autocross. (even with a noob magnet)

After my engine is back together, I'm planning on looking at the box flare goodness.

Awesome! It was my re-introduction to autox after a couple of years off and I wasn't going to turn down xtra runs and free instruction. Of course, I ended up being the guy mistakenly bypassing the timing trailer "thumbs up" anyway

Ah yes...the answer is AW11.

Voila! Wish I still had this car.

OOOHHH! I can play this one..

I havent owned one and have only driven one once, but its different and I have pictures!

That were FUN

Yup, hammering on a private dirt oval.

(before some purist shanks me they should know that it might look pretty in a blurry picture, but its no gem. The car wouldnt even idle, for driver changes we had to open the engine compartment and hold the throttle (battery was shot), as well as rust and stripped interior)

I love AW11's, it just shows how far Toyota has fallen. I missed out on a nice one about 5 years ago that got sold just before I found out about it. Wouldn't buy one now, but not becuase I don't lilke them.

Need a shot of it with its scooped deck lid and new rims...

It's coming along. I've started working on it more regular again, but thanks to Global Warming, it's been SO FREAKING COLD that my outdoors time is limited to collecting firewood and feeding the dogs. Hard to get motivated on the Locost when it's 1F outside THANKS TO GLOBAL WARMING.

Here's the last sub-project as I found myself in need of a power bulge: Before: After much beating, bending, drilling and riveting:

Dumb question - are there any visual cues to tell a supercharged, from non-s/c car?

Other than the intercooler in the engine bay, there is also a different engine cover (bulged to accommodate intercooler.)

All SC's came from the factory with t-tops and teardrop rims. On the dashboard there is a green light that comes on when the SC engages.

Oh, how I miss my SC (sold in 2004.)
