Iman Machmud

Muhammad Farizi’s family has experienced a decade-long journey with this known 90’s toyota sedan. His family bought this toyota AE101 because of they had an impression on it’s sporty shape back then and fully believe on the reliability of this car. Yet in the car’s current form, after countless parts-hunting years and pains, Farizi took back this beauty to streets in what is his version of the perfect JDM AE101 GT style. This year we just realized that Farizi loved AE101 so much. Most people thought that this car was the previous first owned car that we featured couple years ago. Most people thought that he did a repaint job on it. Farizi confirmed that the car that you guys see it now was totally different car. You can see his old AE101 here.

If you’re an crazy-minded person of Toyota, or spend any amount of time on the automotive forums, you’ve no doubt seen the term “old-school” used to describe everything from mid-90s wheels to aero kits, and even an older chassis. With more than 20 years now firmly planted under its belt, the ’90s chassis has earned the right to bask in the beloved glow of “cool oldies”. In 1990s, this car was nicknamed as Toyota Great Corolla for Our Indonesian market. After having found great success in the sale of their big sedan Lexus, Toyota then introduced their first automotive offering: the mini-Lexus. With the model being sold around the world and with multiple variants which includes a sedan, hatchback, coupe, and station wagon variants. Produced from 1991-1998 worldwide, it was one of Toyota’s successful vehicles.

After Farizi got this corolla, all the things that installed on his previous AE101 been installed here. It was too much to list all the convertion parts that he did.

We are pretty sure that you will be amazed to see the car that perhaps you think it was effortlessly done.

Only perfect execution makes perfect car: Farizi Toyota Corolla AE101
Muh. Sofiandry

In Indonesia’s car scene, many people attempt to look unique but in similar style. Many have tried to make it difference than others, some have made it, and perhaps only few have mastered it. A slew of factors, ranging from money to responsibilities, can hinder and even shut down the most loftiest of dreams. But however, when men decided to divert resources to accomplish his dreams, something incredible happens. Immediately, everything is justified, if not overly worth. This is the case for our friends, Muhammad Farizi from Medan-Indonesia and his Toyota Corolla AE101. A beautiful medley of quality parts and skilled craftsmanship makes this car literally unique after he converted this sleek car into Japanese AE101 GT form.

The best part of this car for us is because it was first-hand car. His dad brought this car in September 27, 1994 (even he remembered that date though) in brand new condition from Toyota’s dealer in Medan. Many historical stories that Farizi did in the past was really memorable for him and also this car. This car always accompany Farizi since his first school until he finished high school long time ago. One aspect of this car that truly makes it stand out are his passion to convert this local AE101 become AE101 GT. As you know, there are a lot of AE101 type in catalog when this car came into market. Some types like GT, BZ Touring, FX GT, USDM, etc. At this chance, when he granted this car by his parents, he decided to convert into GT format. From the list of parts that he emailed, we couldn’t even guess how much money that he spent on this evolution process, and the most important thing in here was his patient to ordered one by one this historical OEM+ parts to implanted on this lady off. Teaming up with his friends in Medan, Farizi successfully imported many AE101 GT parts from many sources.

Let’s back to the history of this car first, the AE101 Corolla model years 1993 to 1997 in the US, is actually the last Corolla to have an A-series engine, an excellent engine line and the driving potential behind the AE101 (aside: pre-96 models escaped the evil of OBD-II). Throughout this period, only minor changes were made to the Corolla. Perhaps we can briefly point out the more significant differences on this type. In terms of styling, the 93-94 base and DX models had a grooved, gray plastic trunk panel. The LE model had a red and orange lens-type panel. In 95, a new gray plastic trunk panel was introduced along with a new rear light cluster (has clear signal lenses, for example). That year, the LE trim was removed as well. At some point, other trims were introduced, such as CE, but the differences aren’t worth mentioning.  In 96-97, the gray trunk panel was replaced with a red, lens-type panel. The interior changed slightly from year to year as well.  Most notable in our opinion is the removal of the air ducts under the front seats in later models.

Aero exterior pieces that really so many things to be listed, such as TRD 2000 grill, world class front bumper, G Touring front lip and side skirts, Koito headlamps, Koito front and side lamps, and many more as OEM parts of AE101 GT. Actually the G touring front lip and side skirts were one of Mark’s favorite things. The “Yakuza-like styling” that debuted on his AE101 even for me personally had more aggressive looks than other AE101, it’s a debate that I refuse to touch on when I saw this beauty in our email.

A quick glance at the interior shows a  bunch of unique and tasteful OEM parts, such as legendary Recaro LX Modular fishnet type, and all OEM AE101 rare parts likes rear seat, GT panel, shiftknob, cup holder, burger tray, manual arm rest, manual clean box, Japanese sun visor, rear map light, and many more. One of the unique OEM parts that implanted in his interior is Electronic Toll Collection System (ETC) originally from AE101 GT. Another interesting detail that Farizi used on his daily lady is a Toyota Celica steering wheel sits beautifully behind dashboard.

The next thing that snags our eyes are the staggered set of Are Napre 3 piece wheels that coming in a 17×7 inch all around. This kind of car perhaps can give you good explanation that sometimes you don’t need to push your pocket out to grant some extreme width wheels. Then I honestly said that this setup combination are classy enough to be enjoy. Although fitment was not too important in this built, but the fully polished lips, faces, and centers, sit nicely under the original fenders which never pulled at all corners. I just have to say it is really good. Everything just right in place.

In regards to the future, Farizi tells us that he will not aiming to upgrade the engine even further. However, he reminds us this car will be upgraded on another types from others AE101 catalog. This is proven as he had information about rare AE101 parts that his friend found in Malaysia prior to the shoot with our beloved family Fadhlin. Good thing to see his passion on OEM+ mods in that age. Good job buddy.
