Hrmm man if u think ur colt is ****ed.. i challenge u brother.
my car is the most ****ed up car there could ever be. its seen more dirt roads, bush tracks, hidden stumps and crazy **** than any other corolla in the world.

my diff whines, gearbox slips and the converter or somethin sounds like its gunna come through the floor and take my legs off, it has THE baldest right rear tyre in the world (i drive along with 2 hands on the wheel at all times expecting a blowout, the sidewall is actually ready to give way cause i've gone through the last layer of steel belts, it feels really nasty. no ****. i have to use the handbrake to stop as my front brakes are non existant due to the pads gettin worn out and me not being bothered to change them (i did buy them, just takin the wheel off is too much effort) the engine bay is black from oil and water combined together, which pisses out of the join of the head and the block (which there is supposed to be a nice seal i might add) BUT NO.. has a dodgey head gasket aswell which i replaced tonight for the 4th time.. it being the best one i've blown so far aswell.. the pistsons and the head have chips and dings from the debris of the gasket, but it still goes. i have 80% water in my sump and 15% oil, the other 5 percent would be parts of shaved gaskets, wd40, degreaser, petrol and probably the bottle of Fanta i poured into my radiator when i had no water to keep the car running. My auto leaks fluid everywhere and the car hadly moves cause it slips so bad.. it even slips on the highway at 100 as soon as the wheels take the smallest turn (even changing lanes). I dont have an air filter.. cause the old one got soaked when for some reason my whole carby filled with water when i blew this latest gasket, so i just threw it out. the gearbox vibrates ever since we were caining through a grassy flat bush track (and a tree sump was hidden in the grass) which hit the cross member and ripped it from the floor..another one was put in of course.. but it doesnt sit straight anymore, my car is full of rubbish from maccas, kfc, red rooster, hungry jacks, i have enough coke cans in there to trade in and buy a new car all together, all my dash is apart.. the boot is full of vl parts that i have no where else to put, my left front door lock is ****ed cause when i locked my keys in the car when i first got it.. i put a screwdriver through the lock to get in.. and overall my car sucks ****... its fun days are over.. i'll retire it when i blow the new gasket i just put on today... but hopefully i can limp it for 2 more months at least..
anyway lukas... this is the best gasket i've blown so far.. CHEK THIS **** bet ur colt hasnt done that ?


I'll bring my car to nenos so u can all write on the roof and stuff hahaha...

Peace
Ollie

i must say that after numerous thrashings inboth the k-rolla and the colt , the only way inwhich we can genuinely decide which car is best is to set both alight at the same time and see which takes the longest to burn out.

i have had many a classic/scary/fun time in the corolla , ollie , ur a funny little ***ka to drive with.

i will repay the favour very soon , in the new allmighty 5spd rolla , hopefully it will stand up to its pre-deccesors (sp) and do some wiked drifting around a certain round-about.

and lukeo - u will be amazed when i take u for a drive in the new car , cemetary or dust bowl , here we come

My old KE70 was the best heap of sh1t I've ever owned. They are good fun peices of crap. I rebuilt the motor and it screamed. I seized the box too. $20 from the wreckers and off we go again. I remember blowing 4 head gaskets in 3 months. lol ,agh the good times when cars were cheap and fun.

cheap and fun.
im on my 4th or 5th head gasket now haha.. and they are lasting less a time between changes than ever !! lol
everything else on the car is totally ****ed. its still straight little body tho.. even tho the only dings on it are from my mates jumping on it and **** and kicking things, and throwing rocks and sticks at it in the bush...
BUT i've drivin the absolute **** out of it.. and it still goes.. i CAN NOT belive it.. specially when the sump is mostly full of water.. ahh they built them well thats all i can say.. (the motor that is)
the gearbox well thats another story haha
andy i cant wait to have a go in urs mofo !! i'll set the benchmark and u can try and better it

I went and picked up my car with the forklift (only about a kilometer down the road from work) and brought it back. Went and got a SSSSSSS (Super special semi-sequential slick stick shifter) from the wreckers for $70 and wacked it in yesterday arvo. Wack in some old auto trans fluid laying around here and off she went! OMFG it drives nice now! My car is luxury now - no more ****ter for me.

BTW - I smashed the gearbox casing apart with the crownwheel and all the oil went bye bye. I'll examine the rest today.
