Feb 20, 2001 update to the Toyota Corolla GT-S project car

Introducing our Corolla GT-S

Tim and the Corolla

Our latest project car, a 1986 Toyota Corolla GT-S, comes with an interesting back story. This car has been part of Toyota Racing Development’s fleet for the last four years or so, and along the way picked up some neat items like a fiberglass rear hatch, flashy paint job, sport-tuned suspension and Nardi steering wheel. (The drivetrain is still mostly stock, however.)

Anyhow, TRD decided that the car wasn’t doing them that much good sitting in storage, so they asked us to take over—so we did.

The catch was that we were responsible for transporting the car from TRD’s Southern California headquarters to the magazine’s office in Florida. Calling a car delivery service would have been too easy, so we sent our dynamic duo of Tim and Rennie to fetch the car.

Along the way they encountered snow, border guards, Mardi Gras and a cactus or two, but they made it back in one piece.
