looks mint dude!

thanks!

its little bit too high :insanity
those 195/50 are still too big in my eyes.
175/50r15 are next in my mind but quite hard to find here in finland.
of course i can buy newones but...

suspension is going to get mods,to the front i need coilovers and those 1 3/4 inch lowering pads are waiting for rear axle.
rear leaf springs are quite bad shape,last summer i could drive with higher tires and they hit fenders in big bumbs but now i have smaller tires and they hit all the time :doh
so this thing is going low by itself :D
but its only a matter of time when those springs crack...

and i have thinked rust-things to this but i dont want screw that lovely patina.
maybe little moss?
is that right word?
soured milk could help to do that what i have been told...

its still open.

my friend have 4a-ge 20 valve silvertop head in garage what he doesnt need and we actually have planned to do engine of that to this but its only one choise.
here in finland i have to do "home-made-engine" like "2a-ge" if i want pass inspection with that but its not a problem.

other choise in my mind is something modern like -nz engine from yaris( or vitz in some countries),1,5 liter very light engine and with turbo enough power :chill
one aw11 mr2 with that is in progress right now ;)

plan is make engine room clean and nice and leave outside of car like this.
and hopelly with new modern engine.

this has the potential to look awesome - widened arches, deep dish wheels, slammed, paint the front indicator panels red, take off the standard rat-look tat (the duck bill and roof rack) and then just cruise.....

don't rust it dude, keep the patina and throw on some moss, that will looks sick! i know, 175/50 is hard to get, so are they here in norway, but i will look really good on your ride.

well... you take words of my mouth ;)

i have been thinking a lot what i want do to this and one very potential way is that what you said.

this crown is very good example what im looking for:

Image

but if that happens its going to happen in next winter because this is still my daily-driving car and i cant put this staying at long time. i have to change my work place in august and there i need propaply "better" car (car what is good to drive in highways) so then i have time to do my plans because i have to buy another daily-driver.
that is going to be of course toyota but maybe something else than rat-look...

our laws here in finland dont allow that kind of lowering what is at that crown but something like that is in my minds :aviator

Long time no see or something like that...

this thing is still alive even it has been sitting in garage corner one and half year.

Image

i get this inspected and drive with this to 2014 summer,then i finally get my carina on the road and this has been waiting inspiration since that.

plans are quite same like earlier,stuff goes off on the roof,wider wheels and more lowering and clean enginebay.

patina is going on itself :)

and the engine...
well i work in car repair shop and we changed to customers -01 corolla new engine because old one was working only three cylinders.
i get old engine for free so i take it to parts and then i fix that,couple of valves was burned and oil rings were totally jammed.
first i was planning to sell it but then i have an idea to put that to this.
so its 3zz-fe engine,1,6litre 16v twincam and it developes 110hp in factory state.

Image

Image

i want something oldschool so modern engine with little old stuff will be this fate.
in some point i plan bike engine but that seems go over my budjet right now so i do to this something:

-4x38mm keihin carbs with homemade intakemanifold and velocity stacks (from honda cbr900rr)
-direct ignition is controlled by ecu and that dont come so i will fit normal distributor to this wich is powered direct from camshaft
-this engine have vvt-wheel in intake camshaft and because that is also controlled by ecu i remove that too. i bought another head and there i take exhaust cam and wheel wich will replace original intake cam and vvt-wheel. those have same profile but little bit less valve lift but thats no problem
-original exhaust headers with 2" straight pipe and in the end muffler from honda cbr600

Image

Image

so something modern,old school and bike stuffs mixed together... lets see will it work :|

max. horsepower isnt in my mind,there is almost double when i compare to original so its enough...
ill try keep this updated when comes something to tell ;)

five to six rustholes... :rolleyes

maybe 15? :rofl

well all welded and car inspected couple of days ago.
nothing else i didnt do,just checked that lights works.
not bad after three years!

now its going to be daily driver in this summer,when winter comes i think that this needs sleeping place...

finally i cleaned roof and i bought new smaller wheels too.

Image

Image

tires are still in store (maybe 175/50r13? ) but as soon i know wheels color then i go and buy new ones.
under 50 euros at piece,maybe i can handle that...

wheel are from early eightys but luckily straight ones.

lets see what else comes in mind with this ;)
