Lift-back and coupe models of the popular Toyota Corolla (SR-5 and GT-S) sold between 1984 and 1987 in North America. The sporty lift-back and coupe model Corollas of this generation retained the floorpan and FR
configuration of the previous generation, while the more conventional sedans and wagons moved on to an all new FWD
platform. The term 'Eightsix' stemmed from the chassis code stamped on the firewall; AE86.
While somewhat dated, the Eightsix still has a loyal following in motorsport circles due to it’s light weight rear wheel drive layout, and it's responsive, high-revving engine.
Jim just bought himself another Eightsix, but I think he is going to part it out.
