Ruggedyman's Ride: TOYOTA CORONA 2.0 16valve 3sfe Engine
This is my ride, a Toyota Corona . I got it second hand but still a roller workhorse and can really pull hard on a long distance driving. I may say that I'm quite contented in its driving performance. It is almost in a stock form which I modified just a little bit on the exterior to have that Euro-concept look, the Carina E. I just added some "spice parts" but still in line with its stock specs. Just plain beautiful and simple, nothing too rice and fancified.
I love this car and it is serving my family almost daily for 6 years now without giving me that much headache. I had some repair on this,..some scrubbings and rubbings ,...a little tweaking on that.., but still on the go. It is not a flashy one but surely this ride is really a dependable one. Satisfiably roomy from headroom to legroom, with power enough for my daily and out of town needs....Plus!, we can bring our luggage for a week long vacation (but NOT the jet skis of course ha ha!) . And more importantly, it is still aesthetically graceful even though its been more than a decade model. A real executive-family saloon....I just want it clean , neat.. . . and dropped just a little low .
Here are some pictures of my ride that I can humbly share specially to those corona enthusiast and eager to take a Toyota Corona as part of their daily ride.
Changed the backglass with the one with a rear wiper and washer. These ones very useful during rainy season and cold weather.
With the sunshade up during sunny days.
Installed a Bosch HID on those crystal smoked headlights with an 8000 kelvin rating.
From the inside, well I'm not much of a sound-bomber jack, I prefer more of a sound quality listening. An alpine for a headunit, ....a Kenwood kfc-6051e for the separates. .... a Soundstream 5 channel amplifier would do to chill me out.
Just a plain Audio CD believer....With an Alpine Ai-Net CD changer mounted underside the deck for my Audio files, so not to get bored on those long trips and traffic jam.
....And a Rockford Fostgate P1-10's Subwoofer for a little "fire in the hole" under my trunk.
The different wheels that I've used for rolling my ride:
- My 14 inch Stock (OEM) rims with 60series tires. Always keep a set. These ones very useful specially on long and out of town road trips. Very dependable too....no worries on harsh roads and bumpees.
- My first 17's, a Rota Italia-Temperr
...And some of the old pics of my ride, still with the sunvisors, the old tail lights and a different front grille
- Downsized to a 15 incher Lenso Rs5
...still not satisfied,... slapped again a bigger 16 inch Stern Inter-touring wheels
-Then finally got this rare 17 inch monoblock type ARD Super License
..I never ran out of options in modification.....
This time, I was able to hold on this original Morette quadlamps:
.............then I downsized again the wheels into a 16 inch Italian OZ Racing mags to compliment its roof accesories that I acquire, an OEM Toyota roofrail with bike rack.
After a week updating my car domain site, I chanced up again to grab this rare original BBS rims, made in Germany.
Since I've installed a roof accessories, I then added a roofrack fairing for better top air streamlining.
