for reasons i won't get into here, my girlfriend needed a temporary car.  being that i regularly search craigslist for old Toyotas in need of rescuing it wasn't long before i recommended this rare gem to her.  the Toyota Corolla FX16 GTS is what was known in the 80's as a "hot hatch".  they are generally lightweight front wheel drive cars with a bit of utility and will almost always put a smile on your face.  this one wasn't quite perfect when we picked it up.  the previous owner had attempted his own machine work on a rebuild resulting in a "bit of smoke" when driving.  after swapping in a spare Small Port 4AGE, and completing a bit of other work it is back among the living and enjoying and ongoing build/restoration process.
