    Young'n from Southern California (83 Supra & 70 Corona Pics)

    Hi JNCers. I've been on here silently for a while, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves. My collection is in my sig. They all pretty much truly belong to my dad, but the 83 and 70 are the cars I drive. My JNC stickers that I bought at JCCS aren't on the cars yet. If anyone knows where to get a bumper guard, emblems, & front grill trim (the chrome part on the fender) for the Corona Mark II Wagon I'd appreciate it. I just picked up the wagon as my first car this summer, previously driving the 83 Supra, (and the 82 Supra that I sold to get it), but the '83 belongs to my dad.

    by the way, will my old deleted posts be reinstated?

    anyways. here's some photos.

    engine swap, towards the end of summer.

    Agree great looking wagon.

    Swapped out the engine for a dude, huh? How does the throttle linkage work? Do you just kick him to make him peddle faster? LOL!

    Thanks for the kind words guys, I'm pretty happy with the wagon's progress since considering I bought it about 4 months ago...it's mostly just some exterior details left...then tackling the interior, like the front seats, dash, stereo, & getting a nardi or something. So far it's only a daily driver. Oh, and a working fuel gauge. It's always fun to guess how much gas is left in the tank.

    xs10shl, as for the engine, it was a fairly simple swap, it works like in the Flintstones...I propel the car with my feet.

    Just saw this post ^^^

    the engine I used had the same oil pan location as the 8R-C that was inside of it. It's an 18R, not an R-C if that makes a difference!
