Recommended Posts

Today morning while driving to work I spotted a 1985 Toyota Supra and a very acceptable condition.

That’s an 86 pre facelift MA70 Supra Liftback. 85 was the last of the Celica Supra which are a lot more square shaped and even rarer. 

Very nice spot though 👍🏻

Thanks for correcting me Barry.

When I visited the Toyota showroom here in the end of 1985 I had spotted a Toyota Celica and this Supra, could have been the launch of the 86 model. Before that I used to think Celica Supra was 1 model, after visiting the showroom all these years I thought Celica and Supra were always 2 separate models with Celica being the 4 cylinder sports car and Supra was the 6 cylinder monster with twin turbo that could give head to the Skyline.

Yeah it must have been pre launch that you saw.

The celica was the original car then they introduced the celica supra in 78 which was sold alongside the celica up to 85 and was basically a bigger version of the celica with similar styling. In 86 the supra dropped the celica name and the celica and supra became 2 different things.

      Just thought I would share my story of using scrapped/ second hand parts. Last week my 2006 Camry with over 270k KM started jerking. At first I thought it was my choice of music! Upon diagnosis it turned out that one ignition coil was faulty. The closest mechanic to the place installed a new one for AED 235. Next morning my Camry was still out of beat! Was suggested by the one mechanic to get second hand ones from scrap. The scrap guy had hundreds and tried out at least 10 before identifying ones that were working. Took AED 50 each for 3.
      A week goes by fine and then slight jerking makes my kids leave the car in their work place. Had to drive it back from business bay to Ajman with slight jerks when starting to move. 
      This time around I got better price from Samira Ajman AED 175 each and changed the three. Appears to have solved the issue. Car is humming and hope it wasn't any other issue.
      I am sure the experienced guys in the forum will find quite a lot of errors in my inexperienced ways but from now I will take advice prior to taking decision on second hand parts.

      I have never been a big fan of the Toyota Corolla. It always looked to me like it was designed by an accountant on a Sunday morning.
      Driving it was also never an exhilerating experience. It did what it had to do, and the cabin was well put together, but never gave a real welcoming feeling. That was also mostly due to the fact that most people here in UAE buy the basic models, which suits them well as company tradesman car, rental car, or simple reliable commuter car. And in that aspect the Corolla has been a huge success. 
      The resale value of a well maintained Corolla with acceptable mileage has always been above average, and you can bet your sweet tooth on it that if you'd put one on Dubizzle in decent condition, that within 1 day it would be sold.
      Now, looking at the 2020 Corolla which is now available in both Hybrid and Petrol versions, the new model looks more sleek, modern, and is becoming more and more like a Junior Lexus, which is not a bad reference.
      The Hybrid, having a 1.8 litre engine on board accompanied by 16-Volt electric motors, is clocking in at 95,500 AED. Having 121Hp and 142Nm of Torque are not world shocking results, but with a fuel economy of 3.9 l/100 km we are looking at a damn fine commuter car.
      Petrolheads amongst us that want to stay true to the black fossil blood, will have the choice between either a 1.6 at 121hp / 154Nm, or 168hp / 200Nm for the 2.0 litre version. The base model will be available from 71,900 AED onwards,
      Transmissions are CVT, which are partly responsible for the excellent fuel economy numbers. There are as many haters as there are lovers of the CVT trannies. I'm not fond of them as they take away a lot of the driver's engagement in how the car revs and behaves, but for the Candy-Crush playing commuters it will hardly make any difference.
      Toyota being a company of no surprises does again what it does best: make a car that will sell, no questions asked. Competition has been strong the last couple of years, especially from the Koreans which boast more exciting designs and lower prices, but high resale value kept the Corolla in the top spot and that will likely not change soon.

      one of the most sacred engines of Toyota had been artistically done by RM polishing and plating and that engine is modified to give out put of 900 to 1000 hp with the right mods and was made by SRD group just look and drool even the oil fill cap is a Rolex
