Greetings from finland to everybody :)

My "rat-look" project:
Toyota corolla ke26 1971
has been almost 10 years in a field
almost stock engine from ke70 corolla (1300cc)
almost everything in original shape
inspected without notifications this summer (2011)

Car when i founded it:

Then little updating:

roof carrier
Image

new lights
Image

golf gti front spoiler
Image

new wheels (from escort rs) and lowered front
Image

Image

something to carry
Image

next in progress:
-lower,lower,lower :D
-more stuff to the roof
-maybe little homemade rust to somewhere
and so on,to be continued...

thanks to everybody for your comments!

of course bumbers,wiper arms,headlight roundings and mirror are quite good shape and the chrome is shining but i think they work like a little contrast to the "bad" paint and the rest of car...

if i found worse ones i will maybe change those and hide the good ones to my garage but i like it thatway too...

yeah,the car is not so rusty that it could be (underneath it looks quite awful,atleast 50% is welded again :D ) but car hasent been on the road att that time.
Interior is quite bad shape,all panels are rotten and roofcluster is in mold etc.

Luckily thiskind of car has only plastic and rubber inside,no textile at all!

Love the paint, it's perfect as is

Yes,there it stands every workday ;)
(and sometimes in weekends too,i work there and my garage is there too)

In fact this "project" gets almost as equal driving that our everyday car...

Lets see how mk2 escort lowering pads fits to this.
2" pads and u-bolts to rear axle are coming from ebay.
Here in finland good ground clearence in winter is just as worth as gold so it could be better that i dont try those in place now,my 12" wintertires will take this wagon enough low for a winter... maybe more when summer gomes again ;)
