Hello Everyone

Trying to make up my mind on restoring the car.
Pros:

Complete real SR5.
10 bolt rear end.
AC car.
long center console.
Fender flares are in good condition with only surface rust.
Since this is a real SR5 it has all Black interior in pretty fair to good condition.
SR5 cluster complete.


Cons:

Car has usual rust issues (bottom of both fenders/rear wheel wells/rockers)
Right qt panel will need work along with roof.

really, you are asking for that kind of help here...

when you have turned so many nostalgics into works of art. :mrgreen:

body work is easy compared to sourcing rare parts

now that i look at the 2nd gens, i rather have a second gen, than a third gen rolla..

send it to me for scrap metal, ill take care of it... :twisted:

I think you should sell it to me. I'll give you $100.

Seriously, give me a call. I'd like to come look at it to see what can be done, because I think it should be restored if at all possible.

So, when someone looks at your build page, is that a bong hit?

On topic: Love these cars. My favorite Corolla. Can't wait to see the results!
