well folks, im curious as to why it seems that it just isnt possible for me to find another dark metallic orange corolla SR5. was there not many made? or did people just not like the color and repaint them? i personally think its an awsome color for a fanastic car (the rust kinda blends in) haha. but yea, what happened to all the orange AE86s?

There is a list of factory colors here: http://www.toyotareference.com/corolla#CO84

Is it something like this? (photo from that page)


It is probably because you have an 84. My hatch door was actually that color when I got it... it was an 84 only thing.

I feel you Moonerdizzle, I have an 84 Silver/Black two-tone, and when I repaint it I'm keeping the scheme, it looks amazing.

Not to knock the white, black, or red paint jobs, because the Corolla looks amazing no matter what dress you put her in, but it's cool to keep the interesting colors like the Metallic Orange or the two-tone silver/black around.

i know what you mean, i thought about doing the spray bombed matte black wen i first snagged up my rolla, but then i noticed i have never seen one in my color, and now there is no way my car is going to become another color, she needs alot of work, rust repair, and stuff, but thats nothing that some fiber glass and a few other things cant fix up. once thats done im going to get my paint color matched and im going to respray the whole car back to her former glory

Like any forum, we have ups and downs, but we are still very active. I would like to see more pictures, as this is such a rare color. And an option for when I paint my car. Wink
