    1979 Corolla Sport Coupe SR5

    Hello,

    I just purchased the car in this thread http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/2012/07 ... ort-coupe/

    I tried to reply to the thread, but can't figure out how to do so. Anyway. I'll be on here a lot now, with questions! I am very happy with my purchase! I live in Arizona in the winter and in Canada in the summer.

    This is my third Corolla - the first being a 1977 Liftback that I got in 1994 and had until 1997. Someone ran a stop sign and finished it off - was I cranky or what.. it was my first import ever after having been a die hard North American V8 driver for the previous 20 years. It sold me on imports. Looking back, I obviously wish I had kept it. I actually did for about two years till my other half said it was time to move it out of the back yard .

    My second Corolla was a 1989 4 door sedan, I bought it with 225,000 KM on it, drove it to death at about 325,000 KM and sold it to some kid. All it needed was a couple of cosmetic interior fixes and shocks.

    I am thrilled to get this "greenie meanie" as the previous owner dubbed it. I intend to hang on to it for a long time, and keep it as stock as I can. Therefore, expect to see me again, with questions and advice.

    OK, my first question. It does not say it in the manual - how much does it weigh?

    Hi UtahSleeper,

    The GVWR and the GAWR are there, but I am looking for the curb weight. It probably is similar to your car...

    And since you're apparently half Canuck, that's in pounds not kilos. :wink:

    :lol:
    Well, I was in high school when the metric system was made official in Canada (1977 I am pretty sure) so am still fluent in both It's very handy for when we come down here for the winter.
