A gutless, economical beast, that Is my pride and joy! :)
Water pump needed to be replaced.
Fuel pump needed to be replaced.
Regulator needed to be replaced.
Has had three new batteries, third one is just recently.
Recently has all new hoses installed, and all electrical fixed or replaced.
Tape player replaced with 2x100W head unit and 2 extra 100W 6.5 inch loudspeakers.
Also had reconditioned Automatic transmission.
All were done with last 2,000 kilometers, except for Transmission, which was at about 194,000 kilometers.
I have also started "Beasting" it up, using Toyota decals, wheels chrome sprayed, bumpers all resprayed black, all chrome resprayed, white exterior paint-job, done "Redhot", which is a new Holden color and the interior vinyl sprayed from brown to black, and upholstery carpet all in black.
I have also put many bits and pieces into it, and it is yet on the path to refurbishment, to my own pleasure.
There are quite a few other things yet, but in short, as a first car, handed down from my dad, it is good, economical, and I love it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
