I once had a Toyota Levin

It was an AE101 and it was powered by a 4A-FE - an efficiency-tuned version of the 4AGE.
From what I recall, it had very light steering - something you want when parking, but at high speeds the car is a lot harder to control as very slight movements of the steering wheel were rendered as turns.

This was the third generation of front-wheel-drive Levin, so no 6AM tofu drifts are possible.

I traded in my Del-Sol for this plus cash my way. I owned this for a week or two before it was sold. A month or two later I sold my R33 and bought an R34.

Not mine - a GTZ I found for sale.

It was the poverty-spec sibling of the GTZ - one of the few cars ever to have the 4A-GZE (supercharged 4A-GE). Look at that bulge!

The condition was not good, but it ran fine.

So there you have it - a quick trip down memory lane.
