This next car comes as a tip from John who writes: ’81 Corolla. Checks all the boxes, 40 years old, one owner, factory AC. Yes, that about sums it up. Except for one last thing. This is cheap. You don’t need a trust fund or a median salary as a developer with thefacebook. All you need is a lousy job taking orders at the drive thru of your local Inn-in-Out and you can afford this sweet vintage Japanese classic. Find this 1981 Toyota Corolla offered for $3,500 in Liberty Twp, OH via hagerty.com classifieds.
