Default second time 87 camry owner

hello all, my first car was an 87 camry le. loved this car. i owned it about a year and a half when i got a new car. i decided to pay it forward and gave it to my sister and her husband. it lasted 6 months with no warm up periods, and ultimately, no oil.

well about 10 years later i am the proud owner of an 87 camry, again. this is great news for my then daily driver 85 supra.

i am a very long time shade tree mechanic and i have 5w30 in my veins. Im not the best but i know a few things and have always done all of my own work. this is largely in part to online forums, like cf! thanks in advance!

it does have a few major problems. ill go into more detail in the appropriate places but the brakes are lousy. like, dangerous lousy. and there is a scapping sound up front that i suspect to be bearings or maybe cv related.

any way i look forward to learning a lot!
