  • 1995 Toyota Corolla Estate

    Well with the Corsa engine going bang on me I had to get a car fast but I looked on this as a good thing as Corsa was way to small for me and the wife so we have bought a 1995 Toyota Corolla Estate picking up next Wednesday I only know a few things about the car and that's it.

    It as electric windows don't work, central locking, drop links are gone, drivers door handle is broke, and is a Japaneses import bar that I know noting as I haven't seen it or drove it yet but my dad as picked it up and says it is a very clean car he will be looking over it over the nest few days before I pick it up and drive it home.

    Here are the only pictures I have

      Interesting car, never actually seen one of these either. The hatchbacks and saloons usually have 1.3L engines. Yours has a 1490cc (1.5L) engine.

              Well were do we start on this trip to get my new car well lets start from the beginning. I had to find a way to Cavan which is about 130 miles from my house so I said I shall take the bus as i have free travel pass but this is were thing get funny I'm a full time carer so I have to take the person I care for with me that would be my wife. Bad thing here in Ireland the buses aren't wheelchair friendly and my wife is a fulltime wheelchair user but we had no choice but to use the bus. We get up at 9am as there is only one bus to Cavan a day hop on one spend hours sitting in a bus station hop on another then sit an hour in another bus station waiting for my dad and then a 40min drive to see the car get there for 5pm checked the car over find a odd items and a cool button which flod the mirrors in. We grab a bite to eat get in and head home get home for 10pm.

              Now the car well the electric windows don't work one dose the rest don't. Central locking lock but won't unlock, exhaust is blown bad cough upgrade cough, boot rattles, and some trim is missing the plus side is it dose move put the foot down and your away handling is amazing for a big car got a nice aftermarket steering wheel seats are nice and comfortable inside is clean no rips on the seat or door cards and the big reason we got a bigger car the wheelchair well it eats it up with room for more. I even found a odd book with shell petrol on it and I even got a free CD and a bottle of water which in the picture you see its going into the corsa

              So pictures only two mind I forgot the good camera

                    I actually saw another estate version of this a few days ago.

                    Anyway, I'd replace that steering wheel.

                      Ya I saw one in Athlone when I was picking it up same colour and all didn't get a picture sadly it was going the other way. I like the steering wheel but its too small so I am going to look for one in a scrap yard and see if I can find a better front bumper with fogs as mine is twisted and falling of

                          That's a cool steering wheel! Not sure it suits the car but cool nevertheless, and yes nardi are a very good brand considering its not a replica, if its real it may be worth a few quid, popular brand with the drifters nice car too.

                            I love that steering wheel! I've wondered what a wood grain Nardi would look like in my Camry wagon; now I know! I dig those wheels, when you get spacers (and a drop?) that's gonna be mad! Food for thought, I have the 5SFE 2.2L in my Camry wagon. I don't know how common that engine is in the UK (I'd imagine in Celicas anyway) but if you swapped that in it would probably haul considering a Corolla Estate is lighter than a Camry Estate.

                            Keep us updated regardless, I wanna follow this one!
