Jesse's punishing auto shitbox

Cool car. You should manual swap it though. My dad used to have a three-speed-auto Corolla and it was awful. He'd put his foot down for more go and "wham", straight to 5000rpm

+1 for keeping it original cos it's such an oddball. Not like you don't have plenty of other cars in which to drive fast.

I got one of these for free off a mate who thought the engine was chooched,  just had loose rocker cover bolts

Had the same roof decals and was twin sunroof as well I think. Auto too. I drove it for a year or so, was a good little car

Yeah it's a bit like that, but as igor said I have plenty of other manual cars to smash around in so would be neat to keep it auto, as shit as it is haha.

Haha awesome, this is the first one of these I've seen, most are just nz new GL, GLX or 4wd ones. Yeah it's a lovely little car, Just don't expect it to get anywhere fast.
