Hello, Im Dennis from Northern NJ, Just recently acquired a 97 AE101 about a week ago.
Im a long time car nut since the mid 90's so ive seen plenty of Supped up Corolla's back in my country prior to moving to the US.
My choice of this vehicle came into effect after thinking of what to get as a daily. I know very much what this car can become with work put into it. And me being a former Honda owner, I know how thieves can be a real pain, also realizing that not many people pay attention to this car and the rarity of seeing ones that are worked on, that just made the choice easy for me. In plain words, no one will really steal this car even if it was worked on.
Anyways I look forward to learning, having fun and maybe even helping out others in this forum.
Here's some former projects ive had.
2000 Civic Ex Coupe Owned 2000-2010
A full Jspec B18c swap
ARC majic splitters
CTR Door Panels
Buddy Club Racing Seat
TAKATA Harness w/shoulder pads
Nardi Steering wheel
ARC Majic titanium shift knob
Cusco 6pt Roll cage
Spoon N1 Muffler
and the list goes on etc etc

And of course, the new venture.

Its rolling on 14 inch BMW E30 Basket Weave wheels right now, Just got it yesterday the wheels and tires it came with the car was just bad.
The reason I got these wheels is so if my wife decides to take this car, she wont bend the wheels.
She already bent the wheels on my beamer before, I had to take it like a man and just smile, tell her its ok lolz.
Hopefully in the next few month's I can get cracking on my 20v Blacktop 6 Speed swap.
Hopefully I dont lose control of myself with this car and go all out cuz I still want her as a daily
