Corolla... What? — i forgot to mention i have a mr2 steering rack. the drifing on this car is reliable and great. stays sideways and burns out great. my bf runs through tires from drifting. small corners to big corners. interior is good and decent. seats are good condition, dash has minor cracks. has all interior pieces. exterior is good. small dents, i havent had an accident, thankfully to damage the body. there is however a fender dent where it bends with the door. all my corollas have had this from previous owners. i bought this car for 500 plus a Nintendo Wii. it wasnt even running completely. we towed it from Sw of SAn antonio,texas near marbach and pushed it with my 01 cavalier to the south east taking pack streets..... took a looong time.a bout 2 hours

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: i love the handling and the speed. not a fast car but has potiential to be a fast car. great drift car, i dont drift but my bf does.

Cons: only thing i hate , it has no heater nor ac. i hate drum brakes, wish i had disk brakes all around. other than that its a great wonderful car

Pretty Good Overall Car — The car has a good sporty feel to it when you step on the throttle around the corners. Since it was a rival for the eg-6 civic and they were made to be sporty, i'd say that it has good build quality since nothing has broken yet for me. Its white and black making it look like a panda which is cute. The interior looks really gloomy but thats not a problem. It gets 34mpg which is really amazing since its a really old car. The maintence is pretty cheap since its japenese which is the most reliable compared to the american and european cars. Its very fun to drive when you want it to be fun.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It will give you alot of fun if you know how to drive it the way it wants

Cons: If you have a family over 4 you cant really carry all of them

The Best Car I've Ever Had. — It's an old car, and it's had a long life, ever since my mom decided to run an extra 1000 km on my timing belt... Oh well. I had the engine replaced with another 2E engine, which is a 1300cc.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It won't let you down, when you need it the most.

Cons: Slow. The engine doesn't have enough power or torque to drag along that... Relatively large body around.

Find One And Buy One — super sturdy and best balance i've ever had in a car. its slow of the line but nothing can touch it in corners. can be bought for under $2,000 and easy to maintain. super fun to drive if corners are your thing.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: best car ever

Cons: needs a motor swap to be quick or atleast a built motor

Great Drift/track Car — great car for track use if u have the money. most are old and beat when you get them but that just means you can get them for cheaper. good aftermarket support. but giving that most are not in the besr condition, they can be a money pit

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: its rwd

Cons: old so its a money pit

Like I Said, If You Can Find It In Good Shape, Get It. — Unless you get a good one (which would be hard these days) you should expect to have to fix/repair worn out parts. If you can get over this, however, I would strongly recommend this car as it provides mountains of fun for cheap. It's light so it gets good gas mileage as well. If you find one in good shape for cheap, get it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun, quick, small, cheap. What more do you want?

Cons: It's an old car, no avoiding it. Parts are plentiful however.

1985 Toyota Corolla Gt-s — The 1885 toyota corolla GTS has lots of power for a small vehicle and the year it was built in. It's lots fun to drive and very reliable. There is a lot of performance parts that can make the car taster. It is also a great drifting car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: Lacks power based on today's standards

85 Toyota Corolla Le — I've always been a fan of Corollas. Great fuel-efficient car. Decent power: this one actually felt like it had a stronger automatic transmission than my '01. Very fun car to drive: excellent daily commuter for short trips. Not as comfy on long trips as my '01, but not too bad.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy; build quality.

Cons: Not an overly powerful engine; best for short trips.

Great — I just love everything about it 200,000 miles and still going. Paint still looks good and everything works sunroof, pop up lights. Great performance. Have put about 1000.00 into it. Gas mileage couldn't be better. Interior seats didn't hold up as good as I would have liked.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: positive

Cons: none
