Juan Reyes: 1973 Toyota Corolla

Juan Reyes' 1973 Toyota Corolla is the result of a long-time father and son restoration and modification build. When he was just 8 years old, Reyes and his father started working on the car, and didn't finish restoring it until he was 17 years old. With the engine and drivetrain from a 1980 Toyota Corolla swapped in, the classic Toyota has been modernized just the right amount.
