JROLLA's Old school Corolla!

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

I’m Jerome from Western Sydney, currently finishing my studies to be a Mechanic.. New to this, but been a proud Toyota Owner since Day One! With that said, I’d like to share to you all my Pride and Joy! And the journey we’ve had....

1992 Toyota Corolla AE93 Gti SeriesII

I know is old school and all but its my A to B to C car and I love it! I’ve had this car since March 2011 and previous to that I had an AE92 Ultima Seca. When I first purchased it suffered from a blown head gasket <_< . Fortunate enough I was able to fix it myself.. Unfortunate because 11 Months down the track it decided to blow the head gasket again, only this time between cylinders :(! It was unexpected and I wasn’t ready for a new car, so i decided to challenge myself and carry out a full Re-Build.. Cut the long story short.. Over late July and early August I’d been living in the workshop, LOL! Until on 25th August 2012 she started.. I was Finished!! :yahoo:
