    heres my current side project, 1980 toyota corolla wagon, its a rare 3tc 5-speed factory car, (no powerhouse by any means but majority of the te72 bodystyle were 2tc 5speeds or 3tc 4 speeds), I picked it up from a old man that thought the motor was blown, fuel pump went out and filled the block up with gas $750 bucks threw a fuel pump on it, oil change, and fresh plugs and she fired right up and not had a issue since, I put my spare ae86 front suspension, steering rack, and kouki lsd rear end under it

    sold the rising sun hood to a friend, sold the xxr's and threw some cheapo diamond racing 15x9's on it, and its let the ole lady drive her daily lol its been a good car, come tax time im going to throw a 4agze in it, its a fairly simple swap, all I have to change is the front crossmember to a ae86 gts crossmember, it literally is a direct replacement (and I took the dual cannon boso pipe off)

    Have any rocks punctured the oil cooler on the hoodless one yet?

    Most girls would run away from the cars you have. That or maybe most of the girls in the northeast are too stuck up.

    Yes it is.

    When you have a muscle car that has an engine worth looking at.
