My name is Quinn, I've been enjoying life on the island for almost a year now.
My life is very different than most, my lifestyle is very frustrating and confusing for most people, but is very automotive centric.
I write my own, semi-decent car blog called Speed Hero, as well as help out with the Capital City Drift series at Western Speedway, as an Organizer/Judge/Announcer. I build my own interpretations of vehicles on my own, and try my best to help others.
I've owned a hell of a lot of cars in the last few years, so many I've lost count, but since moving to the island I've decided to stick with one Chassis and get it exactly how I like. You can see some of the cars I've owned at:
I'm a very opinionated and stubborn car enthusiast, so I apologize ahead of time if some of my posts are strong headed or potentially offensive. I believe strongly in the things I know very well.
My Current car, and like I mentioned, locked to, is a '82 Corolla wagon. It has a near complete drive train swap from multiple cars, The modifications are as follows:
Stripped shell, working on the sound deadening
AE86 4a Subframe
Manual Steering rack
AE86 Strut Casings
AE86 Vented front discs
Spaced tie rods for more steering angle
AE86 Steering column
Cut Eibachs in front
Tokico Blues all around
Super thick front sway bar
2.5" lowering blocks rear
Working on installing a rear sway
12A Rotary swap is 95% complete
One piece driveshaft
Quad headlight nose swap
Wiring and some plumbing are left. I have a history in car restoration, but my lifestyle limits my resources dramatically so much of the work is a hack job on a severely limited Budget. This is my Second Rotary swapped Corolla, so far, all in I'm roughly at $400.
This is my second rotary corolla. The first was built over a period of 4 days for a finished cost of a $165, all in. lol It was quite and epic build. However, this time I don't have a shop and many tools at my disposal. Taking me longer and more money to do an hack job as it is. We'll see once the drift season starts up.
If anyone ever has any Corolla or old Toyota questions, feel free to ask.
Drifting is cool...drifting on a public road, in a blind corner in very heavy fog, with no lights on.....not so cool. Right time and place thing applies. Props though to anyone who is not a schoolteacher in Birkenstocks and tie dye, from a gulf island, who will be seen in public driving an old SW. That takes real guts!
