Home with the dreaded swine flu (at least it seems like it) so good chance to sit on the web all day.
This is my first toy
Built to Levin GT spec with various engine and suspension upgrades. Nothing bodged, all factory, especially the wiring. Nothing radical, I like things to be as factory as possible, with modifications within period, if you know what I mean. At the moment is at the end of a slow rebuild, and really only needs the rear calipers rebuilt and the guards put back on.
Number two is a KE25 shell

Currently looks like this! Was to be my next project and I have been sourcing all the various bits to turn it into a 3TG TE27, again with everything factory. Main task recently has been roofing over the storage area. We never got TE2x's in Australia, so everything has to sourced from overseas.

This is what is under the cover. The shell is very good with minimal rust in the usual battery area only.
However everything has been tossed up in the air as I recently acquired this, which will become my first priority once the AE86 gets out of the garage.:
Was a great surprise when this became available, and I have always wanted one after helping a mate who used to race one with a 4AGE. After extending my roof over it, plans for it include some fairly minor rust repair (mainly surface rust) and an engine rebuild. Had been laid up for a few years before it resurfaced. This car is well documented in this viewtopic.php?t=4627 thread.
One other slight possibility is that I have located another one owner KE25 2 speed auto nearby owned by an elderly lady that has always been garaged etc and is immaculate. She doesn't want to sell it yet, but by the time I am ready to do the TE27, it may have fallen into my clutches! Anyway, time will tell.
Why my love affair with Corolla's? This is me, many years ago.
