    my 85 corolla

    Heres my 85 corolla gts that i bought this summer from Dennis. It has some rust around the fenders/rockers, but thats expected with a 20 year old car. The motor has 300 XXX kms on it and still runs strong. It'll be stored during winter either in the garage or on the driveway because i cant afford insurance right now (im just 17). I'll be looking forward to meeting corolla guys all over edmonton hopefully when the snow melts.

    Oh, and has anyone had experience with shops cutting/welding? how much would it cost for a shop to take care of the rust?

    Anything is repairable. Just throw money at it. Thats basically what we drive! Money pits! however dont let that discourage you! Learn the car enjoy it for what its worth. Keep her happy and she will give it right back to you.

    Welcome to DK! Hope that you find it as enjoyable and informative as most ppl here do!
