Home  |  Introduction to my 1986 Corolla GT-S Coupe

This site is dedicated to my black 1986 Toyota Corolla GT-S Coupe, of which I am the second owner. I bought the car from the first owner, my uncle, in December of 2004, with 197,000 kms on it. My uncle bought the car from Stampede Toyota here in Calgary, Alberta in April of 1986 and took delivery on May 2nd, 1986. I've taken on the task of giving the car new life, as it has lost some of it's previous life and gained some rust. It's unfortunate, but that is somewhat expected from a mid-80's Japanese car, especially one that has been driven through Canadian winters for 19 years. The following is some information regarding the car, and at the bottom of the page are some photos of the car that my uncle took over the years, mostly dated from 1986 up until approximately 1992. If you hover over the picture with your mouse, a small description of each photo will appear, clicking the photo will enlarge it.
