A few weeks back my brother needed to get a new car. While he could have spent a few more bucks on a newer car, I found him this amazingly clean 1992 Corolla wagon!

Unfortunately, it's an automatic. But with 83k original miles, it was well worth the $1,200 he paid for it. It's pretty basic, with crank windows, manual locks, etc. But, it drives almost like a new car.

All we have done so far is put in new speakers and a CD player, as well as retrofit the A/C to R134 and charge it up. Ice cold!

It's a fun little car to drive. Still has the roll out cargo cover, too.

It's a sweet car. Very handy. We moved three server racks in it yesterday to give to a friend.

I wish it were an All Trac, but we all know how hard they are to find.

Picked up some bronze Rota Grid V's for the swag wag. Much win. So ricer. Wow.

Actually it looks pretty good, but needs moar low.

Update!

Found some Rota Grid V's with like new tires at the local boneyard. Used a half off coupon and got the rims and tires for two hunned dolla

Needs much low. But I'm not sure my 6'4 230lb "little" brother could find that easy to enter or exit. Hell I have a hard time with this small cars anymore :(
