Arrow Corona Owners Intoductions

I decided to add this thread so we could get to know a bit about each other. Please feel free to add a post about yourself. I'd like to keep it to one post per owner so it's easy to scroll down to find someone. I think you can always go back and edit your post to add/revise something. Anyway, carry on.

I guess I should go first. Well as you can see, I've owned quite a few Toyotas. That wasn't always by choice, but mostly so. I've also owned Nissan/Datsun cars, one French car, and a couple of American cars. All of my Toyotas have been reliable for the most part. The Camry was the most refined and probably a close second in fun to drive to the 82 Celica.

I'm 49 and have lived in Virginia my whole life, and am a civilian engineer for the US Army. I have three children and a mortgage payment.

I'm the third owner of the Corona, which belonged to my wife's grandmother since it was five years old until about three or four years ago. It is currently in very good running condition, and is my daily driver. It needs some cosmetic work mainly below the door guards. To date, repair/upgrade work has included a repaired exh manifold, new manifold-back exhaust system plus chrome tip, new Weber DGEV carburetor, transmission kickdown cable, modern headlights, Kenwood CD receiver with XM Sat and four Infinity speakers, Toyota cast wheels & new tires, KYB shocks/struts, new rear light seals, new head liner, new brakes, rust repair w/ new metal, new idler/pitman arms, repaired AC system, new marker lights, new starter, new alternator, new tune-up parts and leather steering wheel wrap.

Well, time for my introduction than I guess

Hi, My name is Patrieck (Better known as Blof-fan on the i-net). I'm 25 years young and I live in the Netherlands (Better known as Holland to some people)

After driving a '92 AE92 Corolla Hatchback for a few years as my first car, I became such a fan of that model that I have bought a (In these parts of the world) rare AE92 GT-S Coupé as a project car.

The Hatchback eventually just about rusted away, and in order to save it, I had to look for a new daily driver.
I now have the nasty and expencive habbit that I can't part with a car that I have owned and I want to improve it or restor it to it's former glory
So both Corolla's are at a shed I rent and have converted into my own workshop, were I do all the maintenance on my cars myself.

With a girlfriend and a 3 year old child, a larger car was needed. What better car than a '92 Carina E GTi.
With all the extra's like the 156bhp 2000cc 16V 3S-GE, Superstrut suspension and alot of other goodies, it was the only car that I would consider as a familycar.
I bought it in juni 2008 and I am still very pleased with it, although I keep tinkering on it.

For more information on me and my projectcar, I'd like to refer you guys to my personal website: http://www.corollaae92gts.nl

Driving : '04 Toyota T25 Avensis 2.0 wagon
Projectcar : '88 Toyota AE92 Corolla Coupé GT-S

hi all,

i've been a member for some time now. i've had a handful of toyotas over that last few years. the most recent is a 1978 toyota corona that my girlfriend bought about a month or so ago.

it is a corona 2000 with an 18R-C engine and what looks like a borg warner automatic. leaf springs in the back.

i have been working on it to get it ready for registration. in the last few days i have changed a few steering parts and done a minor service on it.

the car itself is in pretty good condition. it was in the same family all its life until we bought it. all the chrome trimmings are there and the interior is in very good condition. everything works. unfortunately, it does not have air conditioning, but we don't mind.

myself, i have a thing for old ford vehicles (i currently have a 1977 LTD, a 1978 Falcon and a 1984 F-100) but i've always had a soft spot for toyotas and this one i really like. i really think the build quality of these vehicles was outstanding and i'm glad my girlfriend has bought this car. she also has a 2002 toyota corolla, but she'll be selling that soon to drive the corona on a daily basis.

as you can imagine, i'll be doing all the servicing on the corona...

i've previously spent a lot of time on the camry section as i used to have a sedan and a couple of wagons (all gen3). i also used to have an ST162 celica.

i am a tradesman motor mechanic and i look forward to contributing in discusions regarding general maintenance, but i don't do any modification work. just not interested in that.

i'm 33 and i live in Brisbane, Australia, but born in Peru.

cheers,

Dan.

EDIT: car is now registered. here's a pic we took just before taking it to get a roadworthy certificate yesterday:

Hi, my name is Kevin and my first car in 1984 was a 67 Corona 3 on the tree, except for the boat like handling around corners, I loved the car. I just picked up a 68 white 4 door with 3 on the tree I am going to go through. I also own a 2006 Camry, 1991 325i, and 2 Hond 600's.

I live in the Sacramento area and will be needing parts and advice in the future. I am versed in BMW 2002's and have had 4 of them, I look forward to getting my hands dirty.

Another new guy.
Two 79 Rona's, a wagon and a 4 door.
4 door is the daily, rebuilt 20r, cam, weber, 5 spd swapped, supra rims, cut springs, the basics.
Wagon has a 2jz/R154 and a ford 8.8 in the rear, not running yet. Might be parting it, not too sure.
Had a supra and cressida as well.
Big Toyota enthusiast, all I've ever driven and I work at a dealer. haha.

New owner of 78 corona....

Hello, My name is Domingo I'm a member of several ther forums because I've own just all the toyotas (except the land cruiser) since the late 70's. Yes, im way up there.
have a small business of dealing with vintage modern furniture from the 50's up[ to the 70's.

WE used to have a '76 back in my homeland(Philippines) and sure was coo t drive. the car with 12r engine

Recently sold my 1974 celica with 18rg and then happen to stumble upon this on the side road in central tucson. Here's my new ride.




Check out the album on how she look when I found her. Interior is shot and missing parts so I will be looking for some. I have a 72 celica parts car so if anyone on the board need anything just email and maybe we can do trade or something. thanks.

unfortunately my 78 corona is no longer with me. she got totaled but most parts that you see here are now transplanted into my current projet. a 73 corolla.
