Re: My first ever Corona?? should I??

I know Simi Valley - and Thousand Oaks, Camarillo, Newberry Park, Santa Paula, Filmore, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Saticoy, El Rio... and most of the San Fernando Valley, including most of the off-ramps on 101 heading into LA, probably in order, as I worked "in the automotive business" there for a couple years, driving ALL over. In fact, driving through Beaverton here last week, there was a Jeep in front of me, and the spare tire cover caught me eye, as the dealer was "Shaver", and I was like "I know that dealer!" Let's see, in Simi you have Wm Morris, umm... there was a speed shop - Hawaii Racing - IIRC on Easy St? That's where I got my Thorley Tri-Y header that's on my Corona now!
Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Canoga Park Reseda...

Yep, those are all my new stomping grounds lol. I really like Ventura Co, it has everything you need without venturing into L.A. We lived out in San Antonio texas for the last 5 years and before that we lived in the South Bay area (Torrance, south of LAX). Traffic is so much better around here, not to mention safer, cleaner and just a good vibe. We are still settling in, havent got a chance to get a house yet so for now, my Corona is in the apartment parking lot with a good cover on it. Drive it around everyday and have been tweeking the carb still trying to get that sweet spot, Im learning and everyday it seems to run better. Once I have it running good Im going to get it all cleaned up, waxed and put the original hub caps back on and Ill have some pictures. Got it registered today under my name so its officially mine LOL. They let me keep the original blue plates so that was great news! Anyways, thanks for stopping by, by the way, that santa picture floating around is HI-larious!!! lol!

Ya I paid $2500 for mine guy wanted 3k . but am I ever going to find one with only 106k miles ? no looks like it just drove off the dealer lot just a few years ago hell no lol . I love toyotas have owned my fair share of corollas . time to upgrade to the mid-size. Wife told me I needed to buy a family car.... Because my 87 corolla fx16 gts was to small..... pfft . but anyways great find and also dont forget about adjusting the points . Its so hard to forget about nowadays with electronic ignition . but I found a set up from denso that eliminates the points . [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I still need to order one but looks like a good idea .

I would say you got a deal my friend! $2500 for a pretty much mint Corona, awesome! Hey, that Elec. Ignition looks very interesting, Im gonna have to look into it more. I just ordered the points from autozone yesterday along with a the cap, rotor, spark plug wires etc, so maybe later on. I got the car running alot smoother, still not 100%, Im still learning on tuning the carb so eventually i will get it. Hey, at least its not trying to die on me anymore! lol. Anyways, thanks for the link.

I'll take the the FX-16! I've been looking for an '87. My mom had one, it it was a fun little car. Handled like a go-cart, accelerated very well when not loaded, and got killer fuel mileage if I kept my foot out of it.

I sold it ......... I regret it but its time to move on and I picked a buyer that will treat her right . she was good to me for many years and never never left me stranded . some nights i would limp her home and just be in awe that it made it home . I had a lot of work into the suspension and such .

Nice - the carb must be pretty close to fire that easily! So clean - how many miles? And I assume an original CA car judging from the blue plates?

Thanks, yeah, I think its pretty close. Its driving good enough for now. The odometer shows 66,xxx, Im not sure if its true, might be 166,xxx but it was well taken care of by original owner. It is original CA, blue plates are from early 70's. I think its a nice touch to have them. Thanks again.

My bad - wasn't trying to hijack the thread - wasn't paying close enough attention so didn't realize it wasn't the OP that mentioned the '87 FX16...
