1979 Toyota Corona LE 5 Speed 20R
This is an incredible well engineered, reliable and classy car
Head Gasket at 125,000 miles.
Re-built engine completely at 130,000 miles.
Radiator failed at 132,000 miles.
This was my first car and the car I learned to drive in and took my drivers test in back in 1986.
I still own it today and keep it in storage most of the time. It is in pristine condition and I enjoy driving it on nice sunny days only.
It may not be fast or particularly roomy, but it is classy and has lots of chrome to maintain.
Each year they produce stranger looking cars, it looks better and better.
It is too bad there are no parts available and it is a worthless vehicle by trade in standards, but it is worth more to me than anything else I own.
To still own your first car is an achievement in it self.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
