i finally decided to go ask the guy a block and a half over from me if he wanted to sell his 85 corolla gts. he said it had a broke timing belt, but it looked in good shape for an 85. i gave 800 for it. should have the timing belt done tomorrow. it also needs a new brake master cylinder, power steering seal kit, driver door hinges, tires, belts, interior, paint(not panda), a/c removed... i think thats all for now. it does have the factory lsd.


04-02-2007, 11:58 PM
I hate you both

04-03-2007, 12:04 AM
oldldd schoool...remember my uncle having one of those...not bad for 800 :0

04-03-2007, 12:15 AM
wish i could find a ae86 in my area...
neways good buy :bigthumbu

04-03-2007, 12:17 AM
i dunno man... tht car looks pretty beat up

04-03-2007, 12:22 AM
most of that is the fact that the paint is faded and my cell phone sucks for taking pictures. i does need some body work. new bumpers and a new passenger side fender, gas door, and some body rust removed. but i have a good friend that owns a body shop and they just got a soda blasting setup so i fear no rust now. im gonna just use it as a fun car for a while.

Nice pickup, seems like a hellva deal!

04-03-2007, 04:32 AM
thats a great deal- would be worth more than twice that over here, if not more! Well done!

04-03-2007, 04:38 AM
$800!?! Thats an awsome deal. Congrats. Your going to be posting more pictures after paint though right?

04-03-2007, 04:58 AM
put a 20v in it or a 4agze. that would be fun. Or 3sgte or be a lot of fun as well. :) Nice find.

04-03-2007, 04:58 AM

04-03-2007, 05:23 AM

04-03-2007, 05:34 AM
Sweet deal bro.

Ben, you and Andy need to get digital cameras... whats up with the cell phone pics from you guys.

04-03-2007, 07:04 PM
you know how i roll, straight balla. cause it makes my dookie twinkle!

ben i hate you and your louvers. you gonna come down friday?

04-04-2007, 01:54 AM
i got the timing belt done today and it cranked up but the idle is way off. the egr is also unhooked and there are some other thing to fix too. i should have the brake master cylinder, plug wires, dizzy cap tomorrow. i also need a title, inssurence, and new tires before its streetable. should i go ahead and delete the a/c stuff? if so what length belt should i run?

as far as swaps go. if i decide to keep it, either a 20v silver top or a beams black top with the 6 spd. i dont want anything too wild since the chasis isnt that strong.

ryan: i cant afford a camera...lol, but really katie wont let me keep it at my house because i would take too many pictures of my cars.

andy: nah, im going camping/fishing friday night with some friends up here. i should be coming down saturday night for my bros birthday, i might swing by after that if the alltrac isnt acting up again. i completely smoked an optima red top in a week. i got a brand new one and another alternator so we'll see. no more rally racing without a welded battery hold down.

04-04-2007, 02:00 AM
Damn you lucky people finding these i cant find one ANYWHERE near me i would have to travel a very long way to get one.

But Good buy.

04-04-2007, 02:42 AM
BAh stop buying the hatchis. Leave some for us!

lol good deal though I wish I could find one for 800$

04-04-2007, 02:56 AM
Very VERY proper! Sooo much potential..... and why not Panda paint? I don't mind em.

04-05-2007, 05:21 PM
fwd ewwww. I should be putting the engine in my sunday!! yay!

04-05-2007, 11:33 PM
sweet. i need a vacuum hose diagram bad. whoever did the head work cant remember where the hoses go back to i guess. they didnt have the tvis hooked up, fpr was hooked to the throtle body(mod?), no egr vacuum modulator or bvsv for egr, i did away with the charcoal canister already, but i dont know where the lines out of the tb go. the diagram in haynes is useless and i cant seem to find a good engine pic that you can see the lines in.

04-06-2007, 01:02 AM
I have two hoods with em on there. and a little notebook with what actually needs to be there. its only 3 things. and the FPR hooks to the manifold onto that 3 prong thing.

04-06-2007, 02:34 AM
could you email or text me a picture of one of the hood diagrams. i got the fpr one from searching for tons of 4age pictures.or ill just get it saturday. btw. we'll prolly be getting the scion saturday too, my friends backed out of camping so we will prolly be down early sometime.

04-06-2007, 02:57 AM
if you would like to come and stay friday night that would be alright. if you dont wanna drive down saturday. I still have alot of kts yager left. as i prefer the southern comfort

04-06-2007, 03:23 AM
ill let you know tomorrow. im at work watching the boondock saints and shes at home watching happy feet right now...she pretty psyched about getting this new car too.

04-06-2007, 03:45 AM
Damn, you guys need to move to east AL, closer to phoenix city or somthin.

04-06-2007, 03:57 AM
i was in atlanta last weekend putting an a/c compressor on my sisters 90 gt. you should have given me a holla, we ate at the farmers market saturday afternoon before we went to look at a scion for my gf.

04-06-2007, 04:02 AM
Was up under the car all weekend. Maybe next time.

I saw a grey '88 Rolla GTS coupe in the local wrecker yard the other day with no visible body/engine damage. You guys are getting me interested in these things. How much do they weigh?

04-06-2007, 04:08 AM
2200-2400lbs stock. you can always lessen that though. i went and picked up a windshield wiper cowl and alternator for my alltrac while i was up there...it seems my red top died on me and the alternator was for nothing though.

04-06-2007, 04:12 AM
What do you think it would take to get down to 1800lbs or so?

04-06-2007, 04:28 AM
convertible top with no interior or body panels, no hatch, one seat, fuel cell, no exhaust, no a/c, i dunno really but i plan on keeping some of my comforts in mine

andy: we prolly wont make it friday night. we'll prolly just come saturday sometime. ill give you a call.

04-06-2007, 04:38 AM
I guess if I get a coupe I'll have a head start on some of that. No a/c, smaller battery, no spare tire, lighter wheels, no backseat, pony keg fuel cell...Any cf or fg body parts for them?

04-06-2007, 05:49 AM
the coupe weighs in at around 2100 with full everything, the hatch is about 2180, strip the insides and everything else it comes down to a nice 1800lbs, nice ehh.
