I would likt to ask question about Toyota Corona TT132 liftback. I have it in my garage for 20 years. Is it good to do restoration? I have not seen it a lot in restoration project. Can you give me and idea? Or, I should find another car to do restoration instead of my TT132. If you have pictures of TT132, please show me. I would like to see the example. thank you in advance. :D

I will keep restoring it from now and hope to run it in a month. What do you think about my rim, 13 inched is too small? Or, I shouldgo with 15 inches instead. :shock: Actually, I have another car than I am working on it which is Publica UP20, but many things I have to work on it.

I am thinking that I will try to put KP61 Fender in to UP20 what do you think?

"natural" engine swap.... 2 or 3 RZ instead of the old 20R... should fit, should add hp and torque, while delivering better gas mileage
