10k is jzx100 territory, at that point don't bother with anything else.

Most jzx81 with factory 5 speed are 12k+. I'd spend 10-15k on a jzx100 if I knew I could register it.

There are no jzx81 with factory 5spd... 12 is basically 10, what's your time worth? Oh, and you're still at stock ride height and blah blah blah... see my point yet? If not, message me when you have 6k and we'll find you a nice car

Just picked up a 79 corolla wagon. The bolt to the alternator bracket broke off in the block so the original owner gave up on it. I picked it up super cheap and got the alternator on and it runs great so far. Ill post pics when i get home if anyone wants to see a stock corolla.

2 years since you bought the corolla wagon and no updates, no pics, nothing. I don't believe for a minute that blue turd will be VIP anything.

I wish I could have kept the corolla but I got an offer I couldn’t pass up. This will be mainly for work for my detailing business so it will be getting done before spring.

So I lowered my blue NA Alltrac and threw some 18” G35 wheels on it. One of the fenders was damaged, it had a little rust starting by the rear wheel wells, and the rear lift gate had a big dent above the rear glass so I started looking for a parts van. I found one with a vague description for sale that looked like the parts that I needed were straight so I went to check it out. It turned out it was a near mint condition Supercharged Alltrac with a blown head gasket. So I fixed the head gasket and sold the blue van.

I then found a good deal on a set of 17x8 high disc +32 Front and low disc +24 rear with 245/45/17s. Threw them on the van and the offset is perfect and will give me room to put the big brake setup I want on the van in the future. 
 

Then I lowered the van 3” on RSR super down springs until I’m able to order some HKS coilovers. But I’m waiting to do a IRS swap out of a TRC21 Estima. And when I tried to order a set shipping was 1400 from Japan.

Over the next week I’m going to be setting it up to run my mobile detailing business out of. Will be installing a water tank, power washer, compressor, a larger output alternator, and possibly a driveshaft driven alternator in the dear future.

I’m on the look out for a RWD model with dual sunroofs and a rear wing. Only the RWD models had the dual sunroofs as an option in the US, and the OEM wings still sell for 300 used since Toyota still sells them new for 1100. So I’m just going to buy a van with both, swap the roof skins and frames, and the rear hatch with the wing and sell the parts van with the old roof and hatch and for what I bout it for.
