OG Club4AG members. Where are they now?

Postby GTSTWINCAM » Wed Dec 12, 2018 3:51 am

How time flies! A lot has changed since the old days and I hope some of the original members are still around and doing well. Im surprised my log in still worked.

If I remember correctly, I believe I joined around 1998 or so. I left the AE86 scene around 2006. Sold it to some guy in SF who spent quite some time trying to flip it. He sold it to someone who ended up totaling it and it was parted out somewhere in the Sacramento area. I'm sure some of its parts has been spread out through the community. My old TE27 I believe is somewhere in Southern California.

As for me, I started a new career, purchased a home, started a family and put the car scene on hold for a little while.

13 years later, I'm starting to get back into the car scene.

it would be great to see some old school members chime in and share how they are doing now.


I now drive a ridgeline for those home depot and lowe's runs, an Odyssey for the family outings.

On the weekends, I drive two S14's, a 98 GSR, an 02' Civic SI (EP3) with Hondata reflash and an 04 TSX A-Spec 6spd with Hondata Reflash.


Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019!

It's always nice to "see" people come "home"............

By 2006, I had already moved from the Poconos(Pa), to Portland... well I'm still here.

I'm also doing headwork, and engine overhaul these days - viewtopic.php?f=22&t=300

Guess I'd be considered an OG member as well.

Joined Club4ag before I had internet access at home (thank you AOL free trial disc!) so easily in the late 90s. I still recall the home page with a picture of a rally ae86 or aw11 catching some air, lol. Created my account from the performance shop i used to work at. I lost my original account info but i was only a lurker at the time. Created this username in the early 2000s.

Stopped being an "active" member around 2007 when i finished earning a degree in mechanical engineering. My car was on non-op for 5+ years but got it back on the road 2 years ago and fell in love with it all over again.

Now I plan to start making cool custom parts for my car. I have a few cool ideas which should definitely turn some heads once i actually get around to making them...

I still talk to a few OG members who live in my area but most have moved on... also, i recently went to a meet which the owner of TecArts attended. I ran into a few old school members there. Good to finally put faces to names after 10 years but i digress...

I lurked hardcore when I got my first 86 back in 2004-2005 just reading all the good info here etc, but didn’t become a member until 2013...Even though I’m on my 4th 86, that makes me a baby on here lol

I thought only the oldies were left in these forums.

My first was a stock Corolla back in 2000:

I don't make it around very much any more. Still have an AE71, still need to work on it, but life is life. Daily driving a TSX wagon with a 5th Gen 4Runner as the family roadpig; crushing parking lot medians at the mall like a beast. I poke around every so often to try to get the juices flowing again, but it's just not 1999 anymore. Too many toys, too many projects, and not enough time.
My car is slow.

Some old names here for sure.
I left the Japanese scene all together back in like 07ish. Went Euro. Had a bunch of old BMWs (mostly E30s/E34s)
Then started working at a TDI parts specialist. Been driving diesels ever since. Had a couple Powerstrokes. Current ride is an 11 Golf TDI 2 door.

Oh and I found motorcycles. I collect/restore/sell old Japanese bikes. CBRs, GSXRs, ZX7s.

Currently own a house, 6 motorcycles and three Golfs.

Haha! That is why it is there! Only a true OG would understand.

Wait a minute... i just realized something... does that mean K_C = OG?? OMG. I just blew my own mind! Please tell me this is some sort of paradox?

LOL..."paradox" confirmed.
I don't think I would consider myself as TRUE OG but, I do remember all those conversation between K_C and other members... 8-)
I also remember he finally got his own white panda and the conversation slowy faded...!?

...good old days when I had my own AE86...missing SoCal life very much!

Youre old skool enough to be an OG for sure.

Yeah, that dude was king of meaninglessness posts. I want to say he had over 1000 before he even owned a Corolla of his own, which is why losts of people gave him $#!+.

Gotta give him credit for not giving up. I also dont recall him complaining about prices or availability...I dunno, if he resurfaces with his car and it doesn't have an LS1, SR20, S2k, 1UZ, etc., i might be okay with him being considered OG (especially after all the crap most peeps gave).

Hello OG Club4AG members.

It's been a long time since I've been to this forum. I stopped coming here around mid-2015 not because I didn't like it. Just had other things going on. I've been a member since 2004 and was also once a Moderator. I've been very active in the scene around 2005 to 2013. Have posted several things including the Takumi Project and Chino Hills meets. Those were my golden days with some members here.

I'm still in the AE86 scene as I still have my hatch. In addition to my hatch I also have my 2003 Toyota 4 Runner and 2016 Toyota Sienna SE. I'm now a family man with a 3 year old daughter. Life is now different for me as my priority is my family and work. I'm glad to see some of the familiar ID names from the past. It's good to hear that everyone is doing well.

Found this in the archives....

53 posts (0.00 posts per day on average)
jondee86 last posted at 6:07 PM 10/7/2008 to 20V blacktop misfires, stalls,
runs rich, fire comes out of the ITBs... (in Engine - 4A-GE 20V)


Don't remember when I actually joined, but probably 2007. Funny thing, when
your main interest is an AE86, time pretty much stands still... like I am still
reading posts asking the same questions I was reading back in 2008 :D

Cheers... jondee86

Sounds like what happened to me lol.
I also have a beautiful three year old daughter, she loves getting inside 86 lol
And I, too also disappeared from the 86 scene around the same as you did.
I am now a family man as well, with bigger, more important priorities in life.
And, I still have my AE86. Thanks GOD!
I am saddened what happened here in the forums, how it's pretty much dead.
But, I think as long as we are here and posting stuff no and then, hopefully it'll be revitalized as it was before.
I'm not as OG as most of you are but, I loved this place then, and I always find myself lurking here.
Now that I have more time to work on my 86, I am slowly starting to look for parts again.
Club4ag Facebook, 86 nights, Oldschool Toyota parts pages on FB helps, but it will not replace the connections I had with fellas here that I had in the past.
