Re: How Do You Eat An Elephant?

I figured in between days working on the recipient down at my friend's house, I would start tearing down the donor car to get a feel for what I'm looking it. Whilst I have the 20v out, I intend to replace all the gaskets and seals as well as the oil pump. Can anyone confirm that this: https://techno...

How Do You Eat An Elephant?

One bite at a time... Little bit of back story shall we? I learned all my fundamentals on our family car. My mom and dad bought the 1983 Corolla SR5 when they got married in Puerto Rico as their big gift. Incidentally it was the last new car :lol: ever. Through two kids, many moves through my dad's ...
