Re: Selling/parting out my 83 4wd SR5 for $300

YOung guy got ahold of it and broke it? That sucks...I'm pretty hard on my tercel but I love it all the time. I give it what it wants, and right now it wants oil...bad...lol No, young girl. Apparently, she's way tougher than me...... I've been thinking of getting another one, but my wife is in grad...

Re: Selling/parting out my 83 4wd SR5 for $300

Well Neu,
You wanted to know what happened to my old Terc....

Apparently it was ok with an old fart like me, but couldn't handle a youngster very well.....

Fare thee well, o' mighty warrior.

Re: Not sure what I miss more....

Sold the Terc to cover the cost of a motorcycle for the wife. She ended up getting rid of the bike, too. Bummer.

Hey Typrus, there's a 91 Camry All-Trac for sale here. Needs engine rebuild, but body looks great!

Not sure what I miss more....

...the Badd Turkle, or loitering around Tercel4wd all day eagerly awaiting another or Typrus' rants.

Ah, who am I kidding.....

I miss those rants.

But seriously, I miss the Terc. I've been riding around all summer in the Jeep, or on the KLR. But I still miss the Terc.

And the rants....

I looked for the receipt but haven't found it yet. I don't think it'll matter, though, because most times the warranty doesn't transfer if the car is sold. I'll keep looking, though. You may want to replace the battery. Alternators can kill batteries, and batteries can kill alternators. As the alter...

That sucks about the window. Hard way to learn to hide your stuff in the way-back under the trunk cover. Should be easier to replace the glass than the door, though. That steering shaft u-joint started squeaking a while back. Napa didn't list a replacement so I just shot it with some PB Blaster and ...

Yeah, rear wiper/washer. I miss that car.... How did she do on the road to Seattle? If you decide to do a tune up or anyghing like that, the distributor cap and rotor are new as of April this year. The plugs are only 2 months old (but may be fouled) and the wires are 1 year old. She definitely could...

well, now that the hurt has gone down a bit I can continue. The new owner is a real nice gal. I know she'll get lots of help on any questions she may have from this group. I'd like to thank everyone here for all their help. It's been great being a part of the forum, I'll probably stay on as a lurker...

Sold the Tercel

Well folks, it's been a lot of fun. I just sold my 83 to a young lady from Seattle. She actually has an 83 in her yard with a blown engine. Plenty of parts, eh? Same color, too. So not the Badd Turkle will spend it's life on the ski slopes and mountain backroads. The new owner's name is Shauna and s...

Finally posting some pics

Yeah, I'm toying with the idea of selling again, but I figured I'd post some pics in the gallery anyway.
