This was my younger brother's car from age 17 to 22, until he moved to a city and decided he didn't need a car. So he handed it off to me. It had been almost a decade since I'd owned a stick and I quickly fell in love. The Corolla is so simple compared to the German sedans I'd been driving more recently - it reminded me of the cars I used to love: my '92 Celica, my '92 Maxima, my '93 Tercel, and even my 240SX. I quickly got to work fixing the minor things: the trunk wouldn't open, the P-point 12V didn't work, the clock was wonky and pushed into the dash, it was filthy.

Dent in the rear passenger bumper, missing the passenger side skirt. Seems to have met a roadsign at some point.
