Just purchased a 2005 Corolla XRS with 141000 miles to replace my 4 door Jeep Cherokee Sport (5spd 4wd) as my DD (threw a rod through the block).
Previous to this my wife had a desert sand mica (we just called it champagne) 04 Corolla, it was basically kept stock. Bent one of the steel wheels and got a steal (free with tires ~$200) on some Celica wheels that we painted black and tinted the windows. Had that car until someone ran a red light and T-boned it ~2013. I also own some classic domestic iron, however, the military has dislocated me from it so looking forward to some possible light modifications to this car.
