My new Toy!

Post by NickC809 » Fri Nov 04, 2016 10:51 am

Hello all, i am new to the Tercel world but have been a huge fan of these wagons for years. About 2 months ago I picked up a midnight blue 85 T4wd out of the sacramento area. It spent it's whole life down in the valley and had been parked in a field since 2002! According to the title I was the 2nd owner! It has been an uphill battle ever since I bought her. The moment one thing is fixed..whoops..there goes some thing else. BUT! I have wanted one ever since I first saw one so I'm trying to not look at the pile of receipts that are growing in my glove box. No matter what, I love this little car and am lucky enough to live in an area surrounded by dirt/gravel/unimproved roads. If anyone lives in the foothills near Auburn/Grass Valley, CA I would love a list of your favorite dirt roads or even to meet up and talk cars!

Finally completed my lift as well as a long laundry list of suspension, steering, and misc parts replacement.

I feel like I have a stack of receipts thats at least as tall as me.
