Xavier Meledez was a certified mechanic when he got this 1985 Toyota Corolla AE86. 10 years ago, he originally bought this car for his wife but they now share the responsibility of making the AE86 drift and show ready. His wife decided on a custom orange color and white wheels. We can't help but think of an orange creamsicle popsicle when looking at the car. At their first show together, they received an amazing response. This encouraged Xavier and his wife to buy more product to install and show-off at the upcoming shows. This, however, was a lengthy project because finances were focused on their family rather than the AE86. A few companies sponsored the build but it just wasn't enough. So, Xavier joined the National Guard and invested his well-earned money into the AE86
