My daughter Sarah bought this old 1982 Toyota Corolla. As the photos will testify, it was a bit of a banger, as with many of these old 80's cars the rust treatment was never any good and most have been lost to the dreaded cancer.

With all her own time and effort (except the paint job) Sarah stripped this car down and rebuilt the body. Many painstaking hours have gone into this car, all a labour of love for her she showed the boys along the way what girls can do.

The engine is standard Toyota 4k the same with all the running gear. Alloys are added and suspension properly lowered.

This car has been in shows and has recently graced the pages of New Zealand Performance Magazine.

Being her Dad I'm very proud of her efforts. I'm a mechanic and living in the UK, so she has had no help from me.
