So, found these killer pics on japanesenostalgiccar forum. Really lovin' the Celica's with fat rear wheel/tire combos. If I had a 70's Celica, I'd want it to look like that man!
Check that orange Mazda RX pulling the inside front wheel off the ground on corner exit. That's some serious traction and chassis stiffness (I guess right?...). I love me some vintage J-tin with fender flares and big meats.
They don't make cars like they used to. Chrome bumpers, metal, fender mirrors, 14x9 wheels, carbed dohc 4 cylinders screamin'. I was born 20 years too late. ;)

So, these are some nice modded Corona's I found on the net. japanesenostalgiccar.com forums. Gotta love the small diameter, wide japanese vintage wheels, simple exterior mods, fender side mirrors and fender flares. Man I love this old japanese classic cars. Gotta get me a project car once the basement is finished this spring/summer. ;)
So, this '74 Corona is going for $1000 up in Ogden. It's been in one family since new. It looks to be in great shape. The bummer is its an auto trans (3speed). It has an 18RC (2.0L 4 cylinder) which is pretty trusty. I did some searching on google images for corona's and almost all i saw were 4 doors or a 2 door hard top without the door post and a more "fastback" shape rear area. I confirmed that by the looks of the front end, its definitely a '74. Anyway, a cool find for someone looking for a vintage Toyota.

So, today I registered on a new forum, fatlace forums. I guess its sort of a photography, art, hip stuff, and cars, especially those with flush wheel setups. Anyway, these pics are only a few of the many the owner posted. This shows how a car project goes together, with amazing photography to show it off. It's kind of like putting together a big model kit, right? ;)
