wagon fever

So recently, I’ve been wanting a wagon more and more.  I figured it’d be a nice daily — i can throw a tooooon of stuff in the back and lug around whatever I need to.  I’ve always wanted a wagon — corolla, corona, cressida, datsun 620, whatever.  Any old japanese wagon from the 80’s and earlier.

One of the most popular wagons in the corolla scene is Ueo’s corolla wagon.  A rare TWO DOOR wagon:

The te72/ae72 wagons are my favorite out of all the corollas.  The rigid lines and everything make them look sooooo sick.  So one of my buddies, Mudathir, was telling me a couple months ago about a corolla wagon he was looking it/considering buying.  However, things fell through and he never went through with it.

So today….I went and checked out the wagon.  Damn, I really wish I would’ve taken some pictures of it.  But it looks similar to this (minus the wheels and minus the slam and minus the front lip and minus the rear wing and minus the clean).

So the car is 100% stock with a rusted rear quarter panel and busted tail lights.  I talked to the guys there and unfortunately they said they wouldn’t sell it to me today — but maybe in a coupe weeks.  It’s currently one of the shop mechanic’s daily’s until he gets a new vehicle.  Once he gets a new car, he said he’d sell it to me.

If I end up getting it, I want to throw the car on bags and just slam as a daily.  Keep the body as messed up as it is and just drive the ish out of it.  It’s a wagon — family car!

OEM Freshhhhhhhhh

The SI got a major overhaul this weekend. My main mechanic, whom I always tackle intricate car projects with, helped me with pretty much rebuilding my motor. We replaced almost every needed part/gasket that is needed of a car that has over 100k+ miles on it. The cool thing was, was that the parts that came off it were all OEM as well. I always get excited when I see nothing but the best on cars. Here are some pics!
