Swank Force One:
Love the AE92s, but finding a decent one in my area is awful. :( Nice car man.

The wheels are Panthers (http://www.panther-wheels.com), I don't know what model though. I've seen a few other cars with them. Only problem is the plastic clips that hold the lug covers on break quite easily. I'm thinking of JB-welding some little neodymium magnets to the lug area and cap to hold them on. If you search for PCW/Panther 15" you might turn some up on Craigslist or eBay. They're 8-hole 4x100/4x114.

We need more photos of the engine bay. Try to swap in a newer intake manifold from 93-97 AE101s - should have a side shot throttle body and a true CAI will become an option (dont know how that would affect your classing). My 4 door 95 Corolla was a hoot with a FSTB, New OEM springs and struts, a short ram intake, Hawk brake pads, and an axleback muffler. I can only imagin how much more fun that would be when you remove 400lbs of extra car :)

When I swap in a blacktop (should happen in the next few months!) a CAI will be an option, and there will be plenty of new engine bay pics! Classing is a non-issue for now - we all run in one class. We might have some classing in the future but it certainly won't be as granular as the SCCA's classes.
