I thought initially that starlet was the one I posted on your facebook feed last night when I couldn't access AS for some unknown reason. That one above It looks like a little peach of a car.

 I phoned the seller, who could tell me absolutely nothing of any use whatsoever. No idea what it's like underneath, no idea about service history, no idea about cambelt. Crossed off the list.

 

It's an old Toyota. It doesn't need servicing or cambelts.

Not a doubt in my mind, sorry. I'd forgotten how horribly firm Vauxhall seats are.


I find them really comfy on long runs tho

One of the funniest things ive read on here - RIP Dave

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

I do believe a Reliant Regal would be ideal.  You could then take both ( your other half driving one of them) to Santa Pod, and attempt something historic.  

 

Invacar vs Regal down the 1/4 mile :D

When we were all at college and just passing our tests one of my mates had a Starlet in exactly that colour given to her by her nan. As me and her passed first, we were always taking turns driving each other's cars. Hers was a 5dr in pov spec but it did have power steering (which my corolla GT certainly did not have). It was honestly one of the nicest small cars I've driven to this day, lovely willing engine and dead nippy.

 

I ended up buying it off her about 5 years later when she was chopping it in for a brand new Ibiza. I parked it on the front with a sign in the window and it sold in an hour! Easiest car I've ever sold other than on here. Think I've some pics of it somewhere

Another vote for the starlet, I had mine for a year..... A sportif model if I remember correctly.
20000 miles in a year, no issues, and used to love traffic light Grand Prix as it certainly confused a few folk....

Winners wheels..

I like those Corollas. There used to be an H reg one knocking around Westcliff for years, rotten as a pear with plate upon plate on the sills, and pink paintwork, but it kept on going. I think it got too rusty in the end. Pretty rare now. Perhaps a trusted 'shiter could have a look at it for you?

This could turn out to be quite the adventure.

We do try to keep it nice up here. But we also like to keep that to ourselves!

I think this own needs its own post with a 'for sale' tag, unless I've missed it. I'd certainly be tempted, really miss my old C70, although may be restrained by boring practicality reasons.

It belongs to Nisfan who is on here but doesn't post regularly.
It spent 20 years stored in a lockup in Cambuslang and only came out when the lockups were due for demolition and the relatives of the deceased owner took it to a garage across the road and said "scrap this for us“
The garage owner put it on ebay and Nisfan bought it. I think it had 19k on the clock. 161bec5fdcf1a2d46a0bb1b08c736a48.jpgdecb87a01a53fdd070e223d53bd4ff50.jpgd575009022996e884a62ceda641f6349.jpg
