I had it inspected and other than paint chips it checked out ok. My brother in law is pretty good about oil changes and such....how many miles do these cars survive normally?

my mom has an 04 with like 230XXX on it already and it still runs fine.

Thanks for your input everyone. I will have the tags tomorrow and will pull her out of the garage and maybe take some more pics. I need to change out the stock rear speakers for some MTX 6x9,s i have sitting around. Those rear speakers are 6x9,s...right?

Why do you need to change them? are they broken? If its not broken....dont fix it. If you take care of the corolla it will last a longggggg time. I like the 68 chrysler, whats under the hood?

350 hp 480ft lbs for tourque, 440ci

I guess changing the speakers is not a priority. I guess i would just like to turn a bolt on it of something. i should just drive till the wheels fall off and leave it alone!!

Do a tune up if you want to turn a wrench. Check all the maintenace stuff: Brakes, spark plugs, tire rotation, put on new belts and keep a maintenance record. That way hopefully you wont have to turn too many wrenches that you dont want to turn.

Oh almost forgot: Nice looking 440, if you ever want to sell it let me know first.

Yea, but like you said...if it isnt broke.... it dosent need a tune up, or breaks, or a belt....and if it ever needs fixin, ill take it to a garage. These cars should be worked on by a real mechanic...but ill work on a simple older V8 anyday!!!!!!!!!

Oh and selling this thing would be hard to do, but it may happen in the near future so i can start a new project. ill let ya know first!!!!
