The baddest AE101 Corolla this side of the Pacific

Blog, Features 303 Comments

This isn’t your mom’s grocery getter.

My mom has a corolla. No seriously. A wagon at that.  It’s silver and has 3 aftermarket hub caps.  Ever since I was younger, I wanted to know how it would look if the right person got his hands on an AE101…. Well, meet Wing Chan.

Starting off with a champagne gold commuter, Wing finished with a champagne bottle life exterior. With his bare hands, he ripped off that front end, and replaced the bumper and headlights with their JDM counterparts. Word on the street is he used to like Integra Type R’s so much, he bought a lip for one and modified it to fit his cororra. Well, I dont know about him liking the Type R’s that much, but the lip part is true. Hell, he even put a M3 lip wing on the trunk, AND made the rear diffuser himself… I can’t even make dinner. Wing got some skills.

Continuing the barrin theme, his suspension is built with top notch parts. With a list of Cusco, Swift, TRD, and Do Luck suspension pieces, it sounds like a roll call to a parts catalog. Hell,  I couldn’t even afford those if I had the money. It just sounds expensive, and I like eating… Although, I wouldn’t mind losing some weight…Word on the street is he even has a big brake kit in his possesion, and doesn’t want to put it on “just because.”

Rumor has it, Wing was looking to do some chest exercises one day, but didn’t have any weights. So he got under his car and bench pressed the old POS engine into the sky. It fell back in as a 4A-GE Blacktop complete with a 6 speed. Using some colored pieces in the engine, Chan fills his love for blue shit. Even his velocity stacks are anodized blue. Now I know all of you want to be a billionaire, so freakin bad, but you have nothing on whats under his hood. Even his radiator hose is a Billion. I mean literally, it’s a Billion. Shits ballin’.

Having worked at a stereo shop in a previous life, Chan’s interior is on point too. From custom glassed gauge pods and kick panels to a pair of Recaros, it has the goods. He did swap out his monstrous sound system for something a little more subtle though, now rocking an Infinity Basslink. From Recaro, to Cusco his interior is decked out. I really wonder why he hasn’t gotten some magazine press yet.

There you have it folks. One of (if not, the) most bad ass AE101 corolla’s in the states. BAWWWWRRRIN! Props and Shots to Memoryfab!

Peace,
