I have a 1970 that I have been restoring since 1999. It has yet to see the road on my watch, but I'm thinking the summer of 2015 will be its time.

They're sweet little cars. I'd love to have one. They have such a classic shape, sorta like the BMW 2002, that I just really like.

I had one of these, a 73 I think. Great little car. You could toss it sideways, and drive down a gravel road at a 45 degree angle, rowing between second and third gear.

And there's something to be said about tuning a carbureted engine by ear - if you've never done it, I highly recommend you give it a go.

I like that this fella kept the car period correct (save for the colour). Too many guys drop SR20s and other FI engines into 510s, and that doesn't sit very well with me.

Love the color. Read about an 81' corolla in modified mag that had a similar blue color, the over fenders, and wantanabe mag wheels. I really hope to do a nice project car like these someday. huge jdm fan, great video.

The 1970s have gotten a pretty bad rap as automotive decades go, but there were some real gems like this one.
Matt Piccolo Feb 20, 2013
