Basically, I have a buddy with an '84 Celica GT that has served him well for years. He loves the thing, it's the car that sparked my interest in JNCs originally, and it had been through hell before he got it, and it may finally be done for. It's been rear ended twice, the first time hard enough it buckled the quarters and the doors wouldn't close, but some pulls against a tree fixed that, but this time it may well be fuxxored.
There's an automatic E70 wagon for sale locally for a few hundo. It's fairly clean, but mechanically it's a mess. It's been for sale on and off for a few years. Right now, my friend is looking into buying that Corolla, and swapping his 22RE/5-speed into it.
Has anyone else R series swapped an E70 before? Are there pictures/info for this? How difficult would this be?
It scares the bejesus out of me that someone, somewhere ordered the Lusitania with front drum brakes.
