Name: My name or the car's name? I used to call it little champ
Car: Well i sold it over two years ago, but here it is anyway. October 1980 KE55 Toyota Corolla Sedan
Motor & Driveline: 4K-C replaced with a 4K. Reco'd 5-Speed Stock Manual.
Suspension & Brakes: Yes. I believe there was. Umm, leaf springs. Oh the axle tramp.
Wheels & Tyres: Stock 13" Steelies with Chrome trims, polished every fortnight with an old singlet
Interior: Usually pretty clean, but not always.
Body: Straight, repainted May 2006. 'Devil Yellow' - A new-gen Holden Monaro colour. Got it off the table for $50 at Protec in Geebung lol, painted it in a paddock. Cut all the rust out and filled it with plate and bog.
Other: It was a good car. I was the 5th owner. Still had the original owner's manual and sales brocure in the glovebox with price written on it. And cost of the 4-speed to 5-speed upgrade, it was $135 if i remeber correctly. Has a few special features, like a kill switch, floor mounted high beam switch (like an old holden) a head unit and tempramental 6-stack CD Player out of a VQ Statesman. I owned it from June 2004 to July 2006 and put 24,000 klms on it. No matter what i did, it seemed to never change from doing 11.2L/100klms, which used to frustrate me no end. I probably should have overhauled the carby. The speedo is always out by 10ks, it over-reads. ie, if you're doing 60, it says you're doing 70. For some reason it really liked a new set of spark plugs every oil change. I used to run 25W60 oil in it to stop the rattle at startup in winter. Headlights were pitiful. Whilst owning it i replaced brake master cylinder, water pump, clutch and accellerator cables, drivers seat (the base snapped - i'm only 70kg!) and a steel fuel line. Used to ping if you tuned it perfectly, you just needed to retard the timing a few degrees.
