Toyota Corolla AE86 with less than 50km on the clock

Every once in a while, we come across links to stories about how old and classic cars are found virtually brand new, hidden in a warehouse or storage facility somewhere.

Here's one of them.

Over at SpeedHunters.com, someone chanced upon a Toyota Corolla AE86 that has less than 50km on the odometer, and its seats are still wrapped in plastic.

It is, as they called it, a time capsule.

Apparently, this car is in Belgium, of all places. And the car is sparkling clean, as though it has just left the showroom.

Well, basically it has, since the owner only drove it from the showroom to his garage and kept it there for the past 25 years.

It is quite surreal seeing cars like these in pristine condition. You do feel like you're in another dimension altogether.

Words can't do it justice, so check out the pictures and the website for more.

OMFG!! It's freakin' pristine! The interior panels, dash, console, are very similiar to the one I'm currently driving...except in this one, they're NEW!!!

Such a find should rank way up there with the discovery of Tutankhamun's Sarcophagus! It belongs in the Museum of Natural History, nothing less!
