force from the driveline allows me to still run drag radials on a stick car and uh i can't wait to see when you get that dialed in man that's going to be that's going to be nice so what would you say is like your uh like your favorite thing about it like at this point i know it's probably changed but it's my favorite thing about it is just no matter where i go whether it be driving it around car show taking it to the track it always garnishes attention just because it's different not a lot of people dig up old 80s toyotas and modify them i mean when they do they're usually on a drift circuit yeah and they kind of get beat up this one is it's pretty beat up for just you know 35 years of life but uh it's got that but it's it's like that natural age like it's not fake patina it's just literally the perfect balance i mean and you literally got this out of somebody's back or front yard so about four years ago i noticed on my way to work

ever

y day that there was a te72 which is the body style before this one really just the headlights change was sitting on the side of the road and i was talking to a buddy of mine about wanting to buy it and we went back and forth so long about it that he kind of threatened me that he was going to go by if i didn't so i immediately left work that day and went over and talked to the the owner and bought it from him and started building that chassis and kind of got in over my head with how...
extreme i was wanting to to get it and you know i was driving down my road one day less than a mile from my house and actually found this one just looked over and it was sitting in the guy's yard so i went back in and talked with him and he was actually about to scrap it so he said man you give me what scrap price is you can have it googled how much it weighed multiplied the price times the scrap price and got it for 100 bill so when i got so deep in the other car i learned a lot and this one i brought it up to the shop blew it completely apart to where it was just a shell put it on a rotisserie stitch welded it from front to back to really give it some strength it had a had to have a custom-built transmission tunnel firewall was still stopped but the extra width that it took to fit the t-56 i had to kind of split the carpet and i'm working with a guy right now to try to get a good custom fit carpet for it because they're just not very easy to

find

old toyota carpet kits so one of the questions that i get asked quite frequently is when i'm going to paint i do work in the paint and body industry but my goal for the car n

ever

was to have it be pretty it was totally functional i built the car to drive it n

ever

was a drift car or a drag car it was a driver i wanted something that i could hop in go get the groceries cruise around town take it to the drag strip have some fun and it's just kind of evolved into more of a race car so um you know it's got dents...
it's got dings it's got a hole in the driver's side door and i always tell people that if i fix it then how is the water going to get out um from front to back it's been all new parts all custom painted powder coated by myself i've had an instructor when i was in college that one of our first assignments was to build a four inch cube out of foam core board and have absolutely no glue showing no edges and that was to teach you craftsmanship so when you look underneath the hood when you look underneath the chassis it is i tried to be as thorough as i could to make it clean simple um just because that goes a long way craftsmanship is something that you don't see a lot it's only been to the track once since it's been turbo it ran low sevens and eighth mile naturally aspirated but i'm hoping to carry those sevens onto a thousand foot which is all we have here locally a question i get asked all the time is why i chose the corolla chassis and my response is always well how many of them do you see driving around and gets people thinking it's a pretty rare car so that's what makes it a little bit more unique than a lot of other things that get turned into project cars before i had the turbo and stuff on there i went up to local gas

station

had it weighed 20 gallons of fuel and me in it weighed right at 2800 pounds so i'm guessing the turbo and all the accessories added maybe 180 to 100 pounds light car big motor good combination feature...
plans for the car is a water to air intercooler the intercooler's got just enough room to fit up front and i'll put the ice box around back also putting a cage in i get a lot of questions about how safe it is to drive it is sketchy it's 36 years old and that definitely needs to be there for safety as well as give a little bit more rigidity to the car i have plans for building some other cars and i'm on the search right now to

find

the next chassis um foreign you
