Ancil Ali: 1980 Toyota Corolla KE70

Ancil Ali has been in the car scene since he was 10 years old. "In Trinidad, my dad used to build race go-carts and moved onto cars," he remembers. Fast foward to present, and Ali purchased a 1980 KE70 Toyota Corolla from his automotive-enthusiast cousin in Florida. He shipped it down a couple years ago and started building it. Ali and his cousin, Randy, started the build and when he finally got it he continued onto where it is today.

"My dad always stood by my side and helped me with my builds," Ali mentions, "and my cousin also helped out." Ali has a passion for cars and exciting builds, "it make me feel nice when it's all said and done." Previous, Ali has built a few mk3 Supras, SC400, Mercedes-Benz E500 wagon. Some of his current builds are a 1982 Datsun 720 Pickup long box, 1980 Toyota Corolla KE70 4-door, 1992 Toyota Aristo, 1998 Lexus GS 300 and recently a 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero RHD turbo diesel.
