This has been a great neighborhood for DOTS sightings; we've seen the '78 Dodge Colt, '87 BMW M6, and- best of all- the very first car in the series was photographed about 20 feet from this Corolla's parking space.

Watch the video above (shot from the Schumacher Taxi Service Corolla) and then try to muster up the usual "wrong-wheel-drive" quips! What you need is a Hell Project that, if when finished, will be a squirming, torque-steering, axle-snapping beast that will require luck as well as skill to keep under any semblance of control! Yes, we mean the AE82 CorollaGT-S, which came with plenty of howling 4A power to go with its weird sketched-by-an-8-year-old 80s-hatchback profile.
