For those of you that saw my other thread titled "Should I? (Toyota Starlet Content) this is no surprise. For those that didn't see the first post, for shame!
Anywho, I brought home the Starlet and somehow managed to do it without having to live in it (my wife doesn't get cars the way I do but she is a great and understanding person). I have plans to build this puppy for the $2013 Challenge. The current list of "to dos" include
- Massive rust repair (see picture showing rear floor of the car below)
- Install much bigger motor making around 200 Hp or so.
- Profit (This step is actually an attempt to not make the AKA of my car true. Comon' 200 hp in a 1700 lbs car with a 91.5" wheelbase on 13" tires, I'm asking for trouble.)
This car may be rusty (also a lot of hail dings) but once you get past that it is REALLY nice. The doors open and close the same as if they were new. The windows all work and are in good shape. The interior is above average for its age. It starts right up and runs pretty well. Also, it was $250. Yeah, 250...
And then one of my Galaxie for fun.
