Finally got a chance to take some decent pics of the car, excuse the dirt and stuff we've had crappy weather lately and I did these after class tonight so no pre-wash. Tried to include the spoiler as best I could Whit but it doesn't stand out well at night. I'll snap a day time photo tomorrow

Funny, this is just where I had thought to take some pics of my car as well. Around the corner on 9th is a good place too. Just look for the crazy building! Pics look good.

Anyone ever considered or heard of someone putting a Subaru EJ20/25 in a Corolla? Would probably need to convert to webers and figure out a way to adapt the T50. Do Subaru's spin the correct way?


Edit: Apparently there's an aussie with a AE86 in the process of doing exactly that http://www.aeu86.org/viewtopic/ae86/p/145029

I think I have found my new favorite corolla. Looks amazing.

Thanks, I had to trim the ends a bit to match the contours of the rear deck but it was a pretty simple fit


On a side note, I'm considering selling the car for a new project. Just not sure if I should or would be able to make any money off of it. Any opinions, is there a market/interest in these cars, and what should I ask for it?

Here are some pics of the interior as requested. Sorry about the quality, some of them got kinda washed out. Excuse the mess and the cheap harnesses too (they came with the bar and I'm waiting on some simpson belts). I really need to get in there with some brushes and q-tips and detail everything, the dust in the vents and trim is driving me nuts, also I need a new steering wheel. The GT Grant is starting to show it's age, and since it came on the car I can only assume it's age (looks old as ****).

Changes I've made since owning the car. Installed Gen1 eclipse cloth seats with custom mounts and sliders. POR15 on the floor pan to cover green paint and protect, rear seat "shave" with custom leather covered blank panels, harness bar and harnesses (since care came with no belts and couldn't find replacements), custom single DIN mount and leather covered fascia to allow modern radio (car came w/ 8-track), 6x9's in rear with handmade leather covered parcel shelf, SMLED's installed inside gauge pods to improve back-lighting, Broadway mirror.

Just had a look through here, love the quick build and how it looks right now. The home paint job looks good, and I also really like your LED dash lighting. Both things I like to do on my cars too haha. I really like these old Corolla Coupe's, done up like Levin/Trueno's.

Car is sold and with its happy new owner. Hope to see it pop back up on here someday. New owners sounded like he had big plans, will be fun to watch how it turns out. Please Please Please don't drift it into a wall/pole.


Already eying a new car but this one hails from much further to the northwest (think jackboots and Turbo) than any of these Japanese beauties, so probably won't be able to post that build here. I'll be around though, there's still a few builds on here I have to follow :mrgreen:

German then? German and Turbo is quite the departure from a 79 Corolla. Best of luck!

Buy an Italian one next, cross of the whole WWII Axis

You were right, this is some major inspiration! I absolutely love the lights behind the grille and the ducktail spoiler. Don't be surprised if something similar pops up on my TE51 :wink:
Also, I'm a big fan of the Yayois.

Btw, what were the specs on your Enkeis? Engine mods?

Thanks, the enkei's were 13x6, the Rota's were 15x9.5 -10 offset. The only engine changes were the addition of a Weber Redline and different exhaust. Details on the exhaust and pics are here viewtopic.php?p=179407#p179407
