    My mom bought this car when I was born. We were the same age LOL. I inherited it when I started driving. My mom loved this car. It was her first brand new car ever. She bought it herself. She had the dealer put on spoked rims. It was fully loaded. 5 spd manual transmission too. To be honest, in the beginning I hated that car. I felt so lame driving that thing to school. All my friends had cool old muscle cars and here I am driving this thing. But that card never let me down. It’s where I learned to work on cars. The worst part was the practically unfixable squeaky brakes LOL I did end up finally curing it mostly of that. And come to find out all my friends preferred that car. It was the most comfortable of them all. The front seats folded all the way down. It’s the one car that got me to realize Toyota was where it at. After this car I went through almost all the American brands and it went full circle back to Toyota.

    Thank you Toyota Corona I love and miss you! This is not an actual photo of the car. But it was the same color plus spokes chrome mudflaps and chrome wheel well protectors. LOL

    I have an undying love for those old Toyota’s. I always wanted the back to the future Toyota truck. My Corona had the 20R four-cylinder. Like a little sewing machine never quit. My mom’s friend had one of those Toyota trucks four-wheel-drive with the removable rear shell. That thing was so awesome. That was the first truck I ever went 4X in. It was like a tank, it would creep and crawl over everything.

    Those 20R and 22R engines are so reliable.

    I love those episodes. That truck was indestructible. Imagine how long it would’ve lasted had they not put it through those tests. I wouldn’t mind getting a hold of one of those in diesel. I want to say those 20 and 22R’s are almost as indestructible though.

    The first car I actually drove was my Mom's 84 Monte Carlo. We had a 1970 Super Sport when I was younger, and that's my favorite American Muscle car.

    I got to drive my dad's 1989 Toyota SR5 pickup (the pic isn't our actual truck, but it's pretty much exactly what it looked like, even the cool decals...). V6, 4x2, 5-speed. It also had a fiberglass canopy—the kind that stuck up over the roof line. The ladies in high school couldn't help themselves when I pulled up in this sexy beast.

    Actually the sale of the '85 Hi-Lux enabled me to buy the Tundra which brought me to this forum. :thumbsup:

    Couldn’t remember if they called them 4runners back then or if it was just a pick em up truck LOL but thinking back I guess it was. It had seats back there. But as a kid it just looked like a truck with a shell on it. Definitely unique. And that’s the color he had to.

    Thanks again. It's not as pretty as she used to be. I've wheeled her hard, pulled a tent trailer all over CA, DD at first. And still passes smog check so clean at ~235K it amazes my tech. 22RE is an incredible engine!
