Damn, your Corona is so badass! I think this may be one of the best looking wagons I've ever seen. It has so much 70's funk style and the ride height and wheel fitment is spot on (though I'm not a fan of Rota, they look good). Well done!

Wow, thanks! Means a lot. She's got a lot more to come. Can't wait to get some crazy wheels on there and get the paint sorted. Watch this space.

Thanks, man! Now if I could only stop messing with the other cars, I could finish polishing the paint on this one...

Happy 2014. The Mark II is still happy to run around town as demonstrated earlier today, and there are no pressing concerns with the car.

While most of my efforts are focused on my AE86 project right now, I'm starting to formulate long-term plans for this car. As part of the AE86 project I've found a great engine builder, and he's expressed interest in working on this car. "One day" plans for now include a full rebuild of the M motor, custom exhaust, and a set of side-drafts.

Let's see what 2014 brings. She's now 41 years old and better than ever.

Thinking of throwing side-drafts on the 4m? Me too! :)

Let's keep in touch and compare notes. As far as I can tell it's never been done before. That said there was a model of crown that had a twin carb manifold.

It has to be possible, right?

I haven't done measurements to see brake MC clearance, but the two hurdles to look at initially are the position of the distributor and the fact that a main coolant artery is integrated into the intake manifold. The first one is easy... megajolt. I haven't had time to study the factory intake for the second one, and it would be really nice to get my hands on a spare intake manifold.

Not much new to report with the Corona. I finished polishing it for the Mayday Garage Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet last Saturday. Here a few snaps of it from the event:

It still needs some SSRs (almost got some before the meet, but the guy flaked), a new exhaust (I think some may have fell off on the way home...), and a totally re-engineered suspension (bottoms out like crazy on any bump on the freeway), but the motor is flawless and I'm loving how it's looking.

Thoroughly loving your Wagon!
The colour is simply awesome. The stance and alloys likewise.
And it's great how you've left the body stock.
Very cool mate! 8)

Thanks guys!

This specific meet is a yearly thing, but these guys put on more general meets weekly.

This was in an MX23 that just sold on ebay in Aus - apparently there were versions of the M engine made with twin sides and downs (users.tpg.com.au/users/loats/technical/mhistory/mhistory.html)

From what I've read you can get the M twin manifolds onto the early 4M head, but I was more interested in either a single decent carb or a custom made intake for twins - just because to find and obtain an original manifold would probably work out more expensive...
