 Finally back on the road :-D WITH PICS FROM THE NÜRBURGRING Reply  Edit


First off, its good to have club4ag back!

I got my love back on the road one week ago - after a two year rebuild. I'm very excited! Here is a few pics of the process...

Before:

D'OH - broken timing belt:




The car has been sand blasted to get it totally rust free. It has got new quarters, inner wheel cases, new used doors, rebuilt LSD and a few upgrades. Hope you like it

Thanks for your kind words guys!

I've driven just over 500 miles since I got license plates for it and I must say it feels really good! The suspension is a bit bumpy on most roads, but on the winding back roads its awesome BTW if any of you consider getting new bushings DO IT! It make one h*** of a difference!

Only problem is that its higher in the front than the rear so I'm cosidering to get a coil over kit, but I don't know wich to go for..

Dude. Question.

What's it feel like to drive what looks, and probably feels, like a brand new car from the 80's?

Looks amazing! (Although, I like the old wheels better :D )

If feels amazing driving it! Just that makes it all worth it Only problem is that removing the sound proofing makes it resonate like crazy, but that shouldn't be too hard to fix...

About the wheels - The old wheels are comming back at some time. I just need to get the lip polished and the rest painted But right now I just want to drive it - in fact I'm going to the Nürburgring next weekend

Hey guys! I just got back from the Nürburgring! It was quite a drive, but the old girl made it and so did the car I drove 1400 miles in 48 hours and I DON'T want to se any more Autobahn any time soon!

I had a great time and talked to a lot of nice people - both with 86s and other cars. I even had a ride as co-driver that showed what an old Corolla can do with the right driver (scary s***) :cheer: Thanks again! Here is a pic of the monster:

We had a couple of laps as well and the car handled well. It steered in nicely, balance was good and the brakes didn't fade. Only had one problem: Tires! They are ok for road but on the track they where no good, but thats a lesson learned

Damit, I want some of those Ronal Turbos! Looks like you had ALOT of fun... I think the interior noise is due to both removing the sound proofing as well as the solid bushings you are useing. But I'm sure it still can't be that back since you have the carpets still in there. You have compete rear interior aswell correct?



I will moderate in moderation...

Yeah we had a lot of fun! I'm sure it want be my last trip to the Ring, but I'll need some practice at some of the danish track before going again

Both carpets and rear seats are still there. I got a new theory: I got a one piece drive shaft, that might be out of balance. But I have to make sure before I conclude anything...

Wow thats an amazing restoration. Is the black on the underbody of the car just paint, and then the yellow powder looking stuff is the "clear" undercoating?

Wow, very nice. I think we all dream of doing this but few of us actually take the time and effort to restore the car completely. Very clean job. I hope one day one of my Corollas is as nice as yours. How much do you think that would run if a body shop did it?
