    New Nostalgic Car owner in Richmond VA

    Greetings. I've been a member here a little while, I've even tried to pick up a few sets of wheels before, but I finally made myself an official JNC owner last night.



    This is my 1969 Toyota Corolla Sprinter. I just bought it last night for 300$. It has (allegedly) 324 ORIGINAL miles on it. It's a one owner car, the previous owner won it in a raffle that he paid 1$ for, drove it for a few months, and parked it. It was taken by a towing company two weeks ago, and that is where I got it from.

    Obviously, it needs a good bit of work, and I'd really appreciate any information that anyone has on this car. Seems it's a bit of a rare bird, and I'm not really finding a whole lot about it.

    A little about me: My name is Pierce Ford, I'm 22, I live in Richmond VA, and work in Charlottesville VA as a technician at Jim Price Chevrolet. I've had project cars before, but never like this. I currently am working on an 85 Nissan 200SX Silvia, but I'm actually trying to sell that car now. I drive an 88 Honda Civic as a daily driver and on weekends I drive a 1990 Mazda RX-7.

    Welcome. Always cool to have pros and ASE certified peeps join up.

    It looks like you really have your hands full with this one. It's sad to see an old car like this just sitting neglected to this point. :cry:

    If you can bring it back to life, then that would be so awesome. Looks like it needs wheels to start. I'm sure it's just a little surface rust :mrgreen: .

    You have more of an advantage than most of us because all the resources that you have at your fingertips.

    IT'S A 69 ROLLA SPRINTER!!! :wink: :tu:

    Haha! Not terrible actually, despite the pictures. It seems to be mostly surface rust. The floorboards are completely intact, no structural rust at all. I probably won't do anything about it for now.

    That's good news to hear that it's only surface. VA is prone to some nasty weather. Post more pictures if you can. I'll be keeping an eye out for this build.
