    Good stuff, that's how mine looked when I first picked her up off my uncle.

    The only thing I dislike abouts yours is its the basic model and comes with the ugly door trims and a few other missing features, but hey it's pretty darn good for 300 bucks!

    I'm keen to see your progress in modding the beast

    Toyota really over engineered the engines in the camrys. Family has a 98 camry that I use to and from work and places i wouldn't take my other car and it's going strong with 375,000 kms on the clock. Only prob with it now is a split cv joint, easily fixed but cbf lol
