Under the rear of the car there are two round welded steel wires that form loops. These could be used to rescue and recover the car from an accident or such but do they serve another purpose?

From the manual:

"The rear tiedown hook is designed
only for lashing the vehicle during
overseas transport. Do not use the
rear tiedown hook for any other use
such as transporting the vehicle on
trucks or railway"

I was figuring that it was to transport the car but wanted to make sure. We could use those for other purpose though. Installing a wheelie bar? :yes:

A rear mounted winch! ... I used to own a Jeep wrangler. I miss that gas guzzling brick shaped thing.

@MrSoozy now youre talking my language! What motor is going in that te72? I just sold a smallport 4ag head and a 7 rib block a couple weeks ago to some guy with a Tercel race car lol

I havent pulled anything with my 3 but I used to pull all kinds of stuff with my Corolla. I once pulled a lifted Ford Bronco with it :vtec228 1:

Also those hooks are what the tow truck guy will use if you ever get towed. He's not gonna use the ones in the spare tire area that screw into the bumper. Those are provided for pretty much no reason
