It looks like old Corollas are a favourite with thrashcar readers,
a few of whom have recently sent in pics of these three old Toyotas being thrashed
within an inch of their life.
Flamed KE55 Corolla
First up is the 'Urrbrae Kids' with their KE55 emblazoned with big flame
graphics down the sides and a nicely redecorated front end.
Here's the old beast tearing up its tyres and making a mess of the driveway, evidently!
From the Urrbrae Kids:
"we love holdens but we love killing jap crap more!!!
DIE SCUM DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome KE20 Corolla
Joe's kindly sent these photos of his weapon, which is an old KE20 Corolla two-door. It's been enhanced with a 'big' 4K
motor (all 1400cc of it) that's good for 63hp (yes 47kW) and cost a huge $25. That would bring the cost of the car
including original purchase price of $50, to a grand total of $75, plus consumables like tyres and fuel, I would assume.
"She may not look pretty but it does burnouts, and that is what a cars
life should be all about, I rallyed this car for months on farms around
my town before bringing it home and "baggin it up".
The thing was only running on 3 cylinders in the pics so when its
banging on all four it is capable of much better :P"
Tuff KE55 with Truck Motor
Harley got his 1977 Corolla 'bush banger' for $100 and it already had a 1.3-litre 'small truck motor', so
who knows what motor it is...gotta be a K-series motor doesn't it? Before the engine transplant the
little machine had 320,000km on the clock, but now it's going strong again and Harley says it's "sik
sliding around on the gravel."
It sure looks the part without its left-hand side headlight and aftermarket front bumper, and can even make
some smoke (or is it steam?) on grass!
Rally AE82 Corolla
This bloke sent in some pics of his rally AE82 Corolla sedan, complete with alloy wheels, missing passenger side
front quarter panel and 'BOgAN' racing graphics. Unfortunately there's no other info, though, but it looks like
there's some fun to be had fanging this front-driver in the dirt.
