my name is George and I live in Slovenia. I always wanted to own some 70s jap car, but import for car companies began to be profitable only after disintegration of Yugoslavia, so only domestic or rare personal imports older than 23 years are to be found here. You can imagine my surprise when this old Corolla appeared on web auction. Guess who bought her
She looks better on photos, sadly the car was restored in a BIG hurry, lots of filler everywhere, paint is faded on some panels, painted while assembled, terrible-looking welds, exhaust is in its last days, but engine and gearbox are great. Little 3K starts and runs like new, interior is complete and almost mint
, still smells like 70s
The plan is to restore the engine bay first, since I dont have money/space/time to do a complete restoration right now. I will try to take lots of photos during the process, so maybe someone will find this thread helpful. Also, I´m doing this for the first time so...
And sorry for my english
