“Sponsored Car” Myke Adam’s AE86

Taking a bone stock SR5 and….

I’ll give some back story first. Funny enough, I only know Myke through social media. He purchased Recaro SR-confetti seats from me a while ago and ever since he has been representing my name where ever he goes, even handing out business cards. For someone to do that, on their own, is really awesome and I always appreciate things like that! For Myke being so cool and having such a beautiful car, I told myself I’ve got to give back to this dude in what little ways I can. Onto the story…

Myke purchased this 1986 Corolla SR5 2 years ago from a room mate who owned it for 3 years prior.
His initial intentions were nothing other than building something for himself; Something he could cruise in, drift on weekends, as well as  daily drive. (His own words). What you’re about to feast your eyes on is what I feel like most people think of when they want to take a rolling shell, or completely stock car, and turn it into their dream. The pictures above are from when he first purchased it. From the start, he was ripping things out and turning it into that dream. ~ Let’s get onto the build below!
