My SX is now my "Recreational vehicle"

I picked up a 2006 Corolla XRS yesterday, Indigo Ink Pearl. The handling on this car reminds me so much of my own SX (with sways and suspension). Plus it pulls like a bat out of hell, especially when it hits it's lift point.


Pics to come.

I love those little things. Super sleepers, especially once supercharged.

1 for now...


If cars could talk, they're probably commenting on how they have the exact same roof rack markings.

Other than changing the shift knob every now and then and getting the TRD exhaust tip, I plan to keep her stock. I love the way it buzzes around in the side streets and I want the buzz to be more pronounced

And cleaning up the SX is the plan man. There's a Lexus collision center nearby where I can get her patched up. I also want to supercharge it. Was planning to convert it to a manual, but that seems like its more trouble than its worth. But that will come in due time...
