San Francisco Trip pt 2.5 “Dan the Corolla Guru”

What was my reason for going to San Francisco? Well I had a car part waiting for me in SF since last august. A getaway from San Diego for the weekend was a great idea too! I’ve always been wanting to go to SF. So it was perfect to pick up the bumper and spend some time in SF, Michael took good care of me and I seriously can’t thank him enough. So the day has come, it was saturday when we woke up got breakfast and contacted Dan who is another Corolla Guru who has been building his car for 10 years now. He has a beautiful ae101 Sedan full of all JDM goodies all around. It was a pleasure to meet you and thanks for all the info on corollas, its great to finally meet someone who knows about this platform that is rarely touched and build in this style.

Here’s the post on when I went to pick up my front bumper from Brandon.

When we arrived, we were greeted by his corolla. It was sitting there and I was just naming all the parts he had on it, it was a crazy sight to see well for me it is haha

Dan brought out a Corolla wagon Tuning magazine for me to check out. I love this magazine, wonder where I can get a copy.

SFC20

The magazine showed how the early 90’s style corolla tuning was during the time. It showed some interesting builds and crazy rare parts that I’ve never knew has existed for this platform!

I took these photos with my camera so it may be hard to see.
This corolla wagon has some rare smoked headlight covers and a nice lip kit.

Looks like those are SSR formula meshes with a USDM front.

I’ve always wanted to see what a FX bumper would look like on a corolla wagon, well here it is! I like the wheels too, they remind me of Borbet type A’s.
