    Swampgarage khanacross ke70

    After the sudden death of my T18 last year, I was left with a void in my life and a brown spot in my lawn that could only be filled by another corolla. I wanted a car to compete in khanacross events that could make use of our stockpile of surplus ae86 and te72 parts. Then this showed up...

    The other day I noticed one of our work vehicles, a massive Ford F250, had a rather amusing warning sticker on the sunvisor. It looks like it means "no drifting" but strangely enough, driving on two wheels is ok, so long as you are wearing your seatbelt! :lol:
