As of recent I’ve been crazy busy planning a business trip overseas. That’s correct, the guy that lives under the true definition of ‘broke’ is somehow planning on hitting Japan again. It takes a lot of organization to get to other places in the world for free, but well, it can be done. One of the cars I’m looking to see this time I’m over there is the little known Corolla 2, or more correctly Corolla II.
This is a bit of a confusing car, I mean, it’s a tercel, pictured above it’s Corsa, also known as a Corolla II, or later on in it’s life you might have got it as a Toyota Soluna. James really pushed Tercels on me, and Robin defined my interest for the EL30 series. That mid 80’s lazer cut space design never seems to evade my interests. What’s a real shame is us north americans never got the cool flip up headlight design, or the big nice one piece, colour matched bumpers. What gives, I want all that, and the 3E-TE turbo engine that Japan got.
