Hi! I am Jam Samonte.. Thanks to the Rolla Moderators for accepting my membership and I'm proud to be ONE of the newest member of the ROLLA CLUB..

I am from the PHILIPPINES and I have this 1976 COROLLA 2dr U.S. Version which I have just restored after a year and 4 months!

I bought the 1976 TE31 (U.S. Version of the KE3O at Clark Air Base, Angeles City the former U.S. Military Base) from a 64 year old man who lives in the City.

The car was near to obselecence when I bought it (general body repair and re-painting needed was needed plus major items like the bumpers/ grilles were gone)
but did'nt lose hope.. (Patience and a lot of work was all I need). Good thing about the car is that it has a great conditioned-powerfull 3T 1600CC ENGINE, cool aircon. Its interior were replaced to customized "all black and dark grey leather". This includes: the seats, ceiling, sidings and flooring dash and compartments. Electrical system was replace to new ones.. Missing items were taken from another KE30 which I salvaged totally to complete the TE31...

I opted to RESTORE the CAR for the LOVE of the GAME.. aS THE SaYinG GoEs: "No GuTs, No gLoRy!"....

Here's mY GrEaT TE31 COROLLA '76:

Until now my restorition is ongoing... I have no specific target date for the project but someday I'd like to JOIN A CAR SHOW and SHOW THIS MASTERPIECE.. Owners of this kind would please make some comments and inputs.. I also need a manual for this car. Anyone? Thanks and "Mabuhay! (Long live!)" - Jam Samonte

WoW, looks good. Our rear end was different. Out tag lights were on the bumper and we didn't get those massively bulky rubber bits either.
Our rear end.
