FWD is where its at for Maximum MPG! Dude could get 30+ with this thing, driven correctly.

I love the Black interior bits on these '85-'86 cars, although some also had Brown.

Very crispy and clean. my 86 gl coupe is jealous.

FWD 5spd

Your cr is the same trim as mine, but mine being chestnut brown metallic #569. I have had a 1986 wagon that color, and i helped swap locks out on another example like yours in ohio.

I am fond of 1986 with brown interior. I swapped partial brown into a blue 88 gl sedan for a richer faux luxury feel.

Nice car. Is that the original grill? Looks like later loyale. That color combo is awsome. The earlier EA82 trim/interior is so much better than the later EA82/loyale options. Very sano ride.

That is the stock grill, at 3-Doors/RXs had that style vs the honeycomb grill on the sedan/wagon bodies :)

Hey all,

Was bored so thought I would see what this stock
little ea82 could do...

The Results:

0-60 (mph) - 13 seconds
Top Speed - 165 km/h

The beast chirped in second and third for the 0-60 test :brow:

I hope to have my 86 GL coupe looking as good as yours by the summer. And then apply for collector plates, 1/3 of the cost of regular insurance, but can't drive it to work or school.

Thanks man! I too looked into getting collector plates, but as you previously stated I can't because of school :(
