The styling? Negative associations with the first generation of FWD Celica's?
Interestingly, for what was a thoroughly 80's production run; there's barely a straight edge on these things. Would have looked fresh in 1985..!
Always wanted one of these wheels, and always keep an eye out for a complete neat black one. Still yet to own one.. <_<
Standard shift knob has been replaced with a popular TRD item. I still think these look far too big, despite having purchased and currently running one in my own car. I'd change this one for a matching Tom's item in a heartbeat..
Done. Would drive.

For whatever reason; the 8 wheels are separated into two lots. Two different colours, and the small character in the corner changes...
I was stoked to get a really clean original set of these recently... which I will post pics of later.. ;)
Anyway, pretty hilarious that whoever made the model attached the centre cap upside-down...!
..if only this was real eh...
Attached to a suction-cup on your window? Lined up on the dash? Looking fine on your desk?
Me? I just like them as they are in the damn boxes. Like vintage model car kits - I'm here for the box-art.

Fairly wild (at least colourful) N2-spec inspired, 1985 AE86 Toyota Corolla Levin GTV Hatch.
The skinny economy rear tyres are a surprise, but presumably there for some low-speed tail-happy antics...
Fixed-back seat, Suede OMP wheel... and plush (late Levin) floormats? Yep, that little daily comfort!
This one has a simple intake, what look to be Trust headers, and some interesting trim work to the timing cover! Otherwise impressively clean in there..
Possibly a little lairy for most, but just as fun if you dont mind the attention!
Id personally break the colour up with some faux-vintage racing livery, and hunt down some wider tyres; but eh, good fun as is.
