  1. Thank you gentlemen for all input and thoughts. For now, as I've stated, I will install headers and my friend will be making me an exhaust. You guys have any suggestions on the size I should go with? I know my exhaust is restricted and I can tell there's an exhaust leak. My muffler has a bit of corrosion and rust with a small hole. The carburetor question is something I'm not sure about. Idk if taking it for a good cleaning is best or just getting a Weber swapped in. Also heard Mikuni carbies are good. I'm just torn between keeping it original or modifying it. Many think I should keep it original because of the conditions it's in. But a big part of me wants to turn it into a sports car because that's what I've always wanted. I've even thought would it be worth more money later leaving it as it is original? And instead, buy a different project car to build? I'm just torn here gentlemen haha. Thanks for all your opinions and inputs and for answering my questions.
  2. Now these are historic! Very nice! I can agree with you on our Corolla's being classic. I do wish my license plate said Classic Vehicle instead of Historic Vehicle. What are your thoughts on carburetors by the way? Would it be worth it to go for a Webber? I see that's the most commonly used carburetor.
  3. No catalytic is my original choice so glad you guys are backing it haha. So no cat it is!! My car is registered as a historic/classic vehicle so I don't need to have emissions performed on my car since it is not a daily driver. Therefore, I don't NEED to have a cat in my Rolla for emissions. 😉
  4. I'll definitely keep you guys up to date on everything. I've been so busy with our new home though haven't had a chance to do anything! What other things do you recommend to checkout on it? I'm really wanting to keep everything pretty much stock. The only thing I want to do is header and exhaust for now. I'll do a new carburetor later too but just not sure on which brand to go with. Also, not sure if to cat it or go catless on the exhaust.
  5. Thank you my friend! She's a beauty! Thank you as well bud! I'm glad you guys like it and enjoyed the video. Yes, you're right 83k miles. According to the gentleman I purchased it from those are original miles not turned over. It was his mother's groceries/errands car. Apparently his siblings were fighting over who was getting it so she decided it was best to sell it instead. I'm the lucky buyer!
  6. Thanks a lot for all the great information! You guys are awesome! Excited to learn all these things and put a wrench to my Corolla. Check out my video though! I've uploaded 2 videos so far. Hope you guys like it! https://youtu.be/EhR7Hjyi8jI
  7. Thanks Banjo! I'll probably get to this next weekend. I should be fine just doing a simple draining of the coolant and then refilling, right? Should I drain it with distilled water to wash out the residue? Or drop a hose in the radiator to flush? I've seen so many ways on YouTube but I don't want to do anything that's going to cause damage.
  8. I think I'll just go ahead and replace the thermostat then because who knows if it's ever even been changed. What do you think about this one? I'm new to all this and this is my first car I work on so sorry for the dumb questions. Are you able to view the link? https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=4483842&cc=1274633&jsn=19
  9. Thanks a lot guys for the information! I'll probably end up doing a flush for now because I don't know when the last time that was. Plus that's quick and easy for now. I've only put about 300-400 miles since I've owned it. Should I change the thermostat now or wait until I upgrade the radiator and clean out the whole system like you guys are recommending?
  10. Hey Banjo, No overheating going on but I was wondering if it would be a good idea. We had the hottest summer this year. 110+ farenheit for 50 consecutive days. It was terrible. I plan on getting a new carburetor, headers with custom exhaust my friend will make for me. That's probably all I will do to my Rolla for now. I haven't done any coolant maintenance yet because I wanted to ask first if it was worth just upgrading everything instead.
  11. What's up fellas? Do you guys recommend upgrading the radiator and cooling system? And if so, anybody know where to look for one and get one for my 79' Corolla with a 2TC. Thanks!
  12. That's the best I can give you there buddy. From my 79 Corolla.
  13. Got these Konig Rewind the other day. Size 14's
  14. Hey guys just want to know what you guys recommend for coilovers? I really want to lower it a bit. I have a 79 Corolla TE31. Hoping some of you can point me in the right direction! Thanks!
