Found this gem in Seattle. I was at a car show with two of my vintage toyotas and a guy came up to me wanting to sell his wifes Corolla hatchback. I figured it was a old dead Tercel.... I was SO wrong.

An nice bone stock, all original FX16 GTS 5 speed.

Just put up pics here:

Took it in to have a total detail top to bottom, inside out to see what I need to do to it.

Engine runs great, leaks oil too but smooth right up to redline. Everything is still on this car, amazing!

Nice! Wish I could get my hands on one... maybe rally it out... maybe one real lightly built for autox and mountain roads... the future is bright!

He Ben, I knew when I saw this one that it was a keeper. I was shocked to find one in this good of shape hidden beneath a layer of dirt and mold. I'll post more pics once it comes back from the detail shop on Friday.
