i would like to first off say hello. i am new to the forum and the owner of a 1980 corona liftback.
i purchased the car from an older gentleman. ive had it for about a week now. it has 125k original miles, all stock 20r, fairly mint interior, and most of all rust free! that is very unusal in my area of north carolina. it is in far better shape than the ae86 project i had last year. anyways...the man i bought it from tried to rebuild the oem aisin carb. he gets points for trying but it runs like complete crap, has a vacum leak somewhere that i cannot find, leaks fuel around the intake manifold, and just in general no matter how you try to tune it it runs the same. like crap.
so as my first purchase for the car ive bought some routine maintence items like: shocks, struts, plugs, wires, thermostat, gear oil to change the diff and trans, rear 4 link bushings, etc., but most of all a weber 32/36.
my future plans for the car are to give it a nice tune up, throw on the carb, cut the springs, get some wheels, and maybe add a header. then just rock it.
check back in for updates.
