This is where it all started.
Greenwood car show in Seattle, Saturday June 27th, 2010. Brought my 78 Corolla GT and my 79 Corona to the car show and met lots of great people.
Chris, another show participant with his electric truck started talking to me about my Toyotas and mentioned that he and his wife had a Corolla hatchback they were thinking of selling. A Corolla FX16 GTS hatchback to be exact. I was interested, very interested. 2 days later his wife called me, said that they were thinking of selling the car but she was very attached to the car. I assured her that the car was going to be in great hands and that she could follow along on the blog to see how the car was going to be brought back to it original glory.
I went to Whidbey island, drove the car and purchased it.
Here is the story from when I got the car on July 5th.
