DEATH-PROOF: Goto-san’s AE86June 19, 2009 11:59 am
I think that the less is said about this car, the better.
The only reason this car exists is for the sole purpose of practicing as much as possible.
“Kassou Subashiri”, the name of Goto-san’s club based in Subashiri, Shizuoka-ken, at the foot of Mount Fuji.
I suppose it would best translate to “Subashiri Sliding Runners”.
Imagine if this car was in good condition.
That little bit of graffiti was written by Ebisu Circuit’s Suenaga Onii-san (Naoto Suenaga). Goto’s not sure what he meant by it though.
“The minimum amount of work for the maximum result” is the philosophy behind this car.
The minimum amount of weight, too. Although, uncracked AE86 dashboards are worth more to someone who doesn’t only care about driving.
It’s only a few months from being Flintstone-spec.
See those hoses poking through the firewall?
With no rear windows, Goto-san doesn’t have anywhere else to stick his Ebisu Drift Matsuri entry sheet.
The Japanese word for “rust” is “sabi”.
Vertical scrapes on a front bumper can only mean it’s a drift car.
Keeping the Panda theme is important.
It might have plates, but it sure won’t pass an inspection. Luckily, Fuji Speedway is only a short drive from Goto’s shop.
I’d say that’s from the bumper being dislodged, and not from the massive fireballs that this car obviously doesn’t shoot.
For maximum loudness.
The front of the block is probably the newest-looking part on the car…
…along with the extractors.
The only real problem with this car is that the driver’s side chassis rail has separated from the strut-tower by about five centimeters, so it might not last too much longer before Goto junks it and sticks the engine in another chassis.
Such is the life of a drift car.Tags: AE86, Goto-san, Levin, missile, Toyota

Cars like this make me want to dig into my fresh paint and caress it with salt water.
Hey Alexi, is there any significance to the glove hanging of the tailight? its on the car every time i see a photo of it.
Goto-san is godfather of boro…. and 4th gear corolla entries(insane). Awesome post Alexi, been wanting to see this car up close for awhile. I’d also like to know what the glove is for, lol
Best. 86. Ever.
i’m pretty sure that this has gone past the point of missile and is now in a catergory of it’s own..
none the less this is a sweet ride.
most of that will polish out!
The glove is there to ‘flutter’ and wave good bye to everyone as he speeds past them 🙂
looks so cool 😛 wallpaper! although its already my background 😛
Might be junk to you, but that car has plenty of life in it. Just need some TLC, that is all….
Epic car ! Love it!
I’d punch my grandmother in the neck to get a drive in that thing.
It would be a sensory overload, better than crack.
Thats an ae101 silvertop. not an ae111 blacktop.
This article is pure 100% awesome, and has inspired me to donate one of my rusty coupes to a track car.
Please please post a hi res-photo of the side view, entire hachiroku brotherhood will be greatful!
Great post, What rims are that?
From HR.com.au forums
Luca, the fronts are hayashi street fin and the rears are longchamps xr4
buff it out.
I was just thinking not much has changed since last time I saw it and went for a ride…then I saw the engine. No more stock 16V with a stuffed box ay. I wonder why he bothered with the dash, last time I saw it it didn’t even work… :P.
i wanna see some footage of this in action!
That’s not a missile, that’s a f***ing NUKE!
That s a badas car 🙂
damn some people only look at the out side of the cars but that car have a lot to give i wish a had that car 🙂
