    • Your parent must've been reluctant to give such a vehicle up. Curse your name whenever you guys had to go for a ride! LOL ;-)

  • There were many cars in which I spent my childhood, as my father would go through them like socks. When I was born, I was brought home from the hospital in a 1947 Packard Super Clipper. As an infant, I was in the back seat of a white 1959 Cadillac DeVille. There was also a Ford Econoline van, a '78 Oldsmobile Delta 88, a '72 GMC truck, a '48 International truck, and a few others I can't remember. The car that was around the longest, though, was our 1969 Toyota Corolla KE-10 (not a Sprinter). My father bought it new in October of 1968 for $2009 and it stayed in the family until I finally sold it around 1994, with over 340,000 miles on the original 1.1L. I called it "Satan's Little Helper", as the red little monster simply would not die. It had been through a couple accidents (mom wasn't the best driver).......several botched repairs from an uncle...... dad drove it, mom drove it, and then my sister drove it while I was in the military. I eventually ended up with it, in a much sadder state than the picture implies. The picture was taken when we had a cousin do the body work, and paint it so that it looked good again. I'd have liked to restore the car, but finding parts for a KE-10 is nearly impossible. After I sold it, people would tell me they had seen it driving around for another 10 years or so, but nobody has seen it since. I can only assume it finally met its demise in some horrific fashion, as there is no way that the engine gave up on its own. That car was, without a doubt in my mind, the most reliable vehicle I have ever seen. The picture was taken while I was home on leave (obviously in the 80's), and just after the paint job. I had thrown some slotted dish wheels on it, and put the banner on it to give it a little flash. Was a great little car. I miss the car sometimes.........I miss mom too ......... and I've had to accept that neither can be replaced.

    • Very Nice...... 6/5. I like such vehicles which are small, light and can be used for spirited drive, however slow it may be.

  • Except ours was far from stock.

    It was originally a v6 car and when it blew up we put in a 455 SD bored 60 over with a full roller kit and flat top pistons and a Muncie T10 4 speed. It had those ugly slotted mags with M/T M50 street slicks on the back. My mom daily drove it for 18 years and raced it to pay our mortgage and my medical bills and care.
