    Hi everyone.

    Al from Newcastle here.

    I have become sick of fixing my Bimmer every week so I thought I'd have a change of scenery and fix something else every week. Looking at buying a factory 4AGE Corolla over the next few months and thought joining here to ask a few questions would be a good start.

    Hey Guys, Just joined today and loving the info on this forum.

    Previously owned many Corollas, KE20s, Ke30, KE70s and SX Liftback.

    My recent project is KE70 Corolla. Currently very stock while it gets a full resto.

    Canít wait to hit some events and cruises.

    Cheers

    My name is Michael Yount - I'm retired in Charlotte, NC, USA. Glad to connect with other vintage Toyota fans across the big pond. Back in the late 80's I raced a '74 Corolla TE27 in Sports Car Club of America. Since then, I've wanted another and recently came across a really clean, restored TE21 in Texas. Picked it up in November, 2019. The previous owner did a great job on the BIG stuff - paint/body/interior/drivetrain. However, there are a lot of little details that need attention -- working on those now. Looking forward to re-educating myself about these cars - and learning from you folks.

    Looks awesome Michael! Cant wait to see your build. Looks like you already have a lot done and hopefully only minor junk to contend with.
