198? Toyota Carina (2) cold\old start and offroad drive!
Older Toyotas are great cars! It sat for 4-5 years, and were supposed to be
restored, but were halted for some reason. Apparently the head gasket was
blown as there was very much water in the engine oil... The oil was
greenish\creamish white! Geez! We did replace that with som 8000km used
diesel engine oil, and when we poured it in the engine the oil was so thin
it actually looked like we poured water in the engine! The car still runs.
