Good day JNC! This is my 1979 Toyota Corona. It's my first car. It was our family car, and it has become my daily driver since 1996 (my college years).
I started to restore it more than 7 years ago. It was already repainted in 1995 and was needed to be re-done after a decade. Here's how it looked when i started my restomod project and it got tons of rust! :lol:

Wait till you see the finished product of this car, it's immaculate. Wish I can do the same type of work on my Cressida's body.

Migs, saw the Top Gear PI article about your car. Can you take a video of the automatic fog light cover in action?

Astig yun option na yon ah...and ang ganda nang side mirrors mo :)

Nice car! Its fun to see another corona being given the TLC it deserves. Just a question, Are you rocking the stock ride height? stock springs and shocks?. I like how the car stands, might go for that look with my Corona.

Thanks! 8)
