    Greetings from Louisiana! 82' ke70

    Hey guys, Im completely new to these forums. Never even lurked here before I got my new project car.

    My uncle recently gave me his 1982 Corolla with only 107k miles. Drove it back home from dallas (400mi) and had no problems at all. It actually rides very smooth. He maintained an excellent service record for this vehicle, and had the oil changed 4 times a year since the car was new. This car is in excellent mechanical condition all around. Brakes; Drivetrain; suspension. Everything was taken care of very well.

    The seats need to be reupholstered and she needs some body work. but all around this car is a gem.. I plan to clean this car up over the next couple years. And eventually I will be rebuilding the engine from the bottom up to throw in some performance parts, but nothing to serious. I intend to keep this car(and original motor) as my weekend driver for as long as possible.
