Not many people have heard or seen one of these so i thought it was cool when 2 popped up on the local craigslist.

if anyone wants me to go get some pics it could be arranged. Maybe an SR would fit? :driving:

One of those Sedans would be so cool.

lol, a bunch of rotten crap for $5000, as if.

Those things look like they are about to explode into dust!

Its sad, these things are cool when they arent left to rot on a lawn.

I can't see rust through in a single one of those cars, just faded paint, primer, and surface rust. Plus these old cars have sheet metal 4x as thick as our tin cans.

Edit: I wonder where most of our cars will be in 70 years. You'd be lucky to find an ae86 in anywhere near the body condition of these cars. My corolla is 40 years old, from arizona, and its already getting holes in the rockers.

agreed. we always say that toyota builds em like they used to - very true, but no one builds them like that anymore.

I think a slammed truck with a modern motor would be badass. slammed!
