Yes! …You Can Buy JDM Rust On eBay::

16 Aug

When I first heard my bro Oli Banks from HardslamMK1 bough an early 80’s KE70 Corolla I was twitching with excitement…

But on turning up at his house on Sunday I quickly realised this was not just your basic fixer upper!

Oli found this…. ”gem” on eBay and successfully won it for the sum of £250, the small 1300cc motor hadn’t run in over 15 years and the car had been sat in the middle of a back yard for the elements to work their magic on the shell. Covered not only in metal cancer but graffiti aswell she didnt look to happy but this is just tarnished JDM gold. Sadly the guys couldn’t get the motor running due to possibly a killed fuel pump but talks of a 4-AG motor have been raised hopefully once the exterior has had a little sprucing up.

I’ma try and get up to Oli’s place every once and a while to check on progress and offer my help so keep an eye out for updates… and if you havent already, please subscribe!







How cool is this…

It was found inside the car.
