Why did you pick the FR-S?
I've always been obsessed with the 1986 Corolla "AE86" and I've owned 6 of them, building them up as well. One day Toyota announced the upcoming FT-86 and that it was being designed in the spirit of the AE86. I instantly knew I needed the car in my life. After several years the car was released and I was one of the first in my town to own one.
What is your favorite thing about your Scion?
My favorite thing about my car is that I am the only owner in its history. I like knowing everything that has been done to the car and how it has been treated. Honestly there is nothing better than knowing the true history of a single vehicle. I also like playing with the air suspension.
