    Hello from Adelaide, Australia!

    Hi Guys and Girls.

    Thanks for having me!

    Name's Ryan and im somewhat addicted to KE series Corollas.
    Currently in Adelaide, South Australia.

    I own and daily drive a KE38 wagon that i've built.

    And about a week ago i picked up a KE36 2dr Windowless Panelvan.

    Previously Owned a 71 KE25, 78 KE30 and an 81 KE38.

    CHEERS

    Hi SharmCos

    A KE38 is a KE55 Wagon or Panelvan (Just the later version of a KE36). I've got the 4dr wagon variant.

    Will post up a few pics when i can.

    How much did they give you for it?

    They Didnt Buy it off of me.

    I bought it for $200 from a bloke at work.

    Put a 4K in it and sold it for $500

    Bloke did some body work on it, sold for 900

    Next guy did nothing, sold for $1500

    4K, 5spd and other good bits were taken off and replaced with a 3k and 4spd.

    A while after that it turned up in the hands of the TGA crew.

    Do you have any pics of your 25? 4KZ sounds good. I was actually half way thru doing a 4KZ conversion on the KE30 when it got defected
