December 09, 2017

On March 11, 2011 the Tohoku region of Japan was struck with a devastating earthquake followed by a Tsunami that laid waste to vast sections of its coastline. There was tremendous lost of life and property.

The E20 Series Corolla was built from May 1970 to Jul 1974. This Corolla coupe was built in 1971. It has a 1,407cc inline 4 engine.
