The best way to keep old cars on the road? When the manufacturer itself offers reproduction parts to help accomplish that goal.

Toyota Gazoo Racing announced today that it has expanded the GR Heritage Parts Program–which already reproduces a number of spare parts for the A70 and A80 Supra, 40 Series Land Cruiser and 2000GT–to include the AE86 Corolla.

I'm now wondering how many parts they'll offer from the bin that are shared with the mk1 mr2...

Had a look at the form but AE92 owners aren't eligible sad
