Storing my Tercel :(

Well, the day fast approaches to move to Seattle, and with it the unhappy prospect of leaving my dearly beloved 4WD Tercel in Eugene, as alas, it would never pass Seattle smog. My father is the technical owner of it, and he has asked me to draw up plans for storage. I don't know when (nor if) I will...

I got in contact with a fellow Terc owner in Oregon, and will be going to have his son take a look at my car sometime today. I'll definitely consider your wrecker if that doesn't work out.

Man, Ed. Your car is exactly like mine. Color, interior upholstery, the wheels, everything. For comparison: http://homepage.mac.com/ctishman/car1.jpg http://homepage.mac.com/ctishman/car2.jpg Of course, that was before it was stolen twice and beaten to hell. Right now it's still hobbling along as To...

I remember my dad using Nokian Hakkapeliitta to drive from Vermont to Alaska and back in the middle of winter, in a 1970 Dodge Dart. Apparently they were amazing. Endorsed!

Damn, too bad that was sold out from under you. I'm down in Eugene, by the way. Lots of Terc folks in Oregon. I maintain that we oughtta have a meet.

Tercel to the Rescue!

So earlier this evening, I'm driving home from having dinner at the folks' place, and I notice a Ford Escort stopped on a steep hill, on a curve. I slow down and ask him if he's okay. He says his car's overheated, and he's not sure what to do, as he can't get up the hill, and the road's too twisty a...

It's about $100-$150 to replace, and yes, the tank has to come out to do it.

No, the road salt's eaten 90% of them alive by now, which is why it's such a wonder to find one intact these days in the Northeast. the reason for the salt is so that the hugeass tour busses can get up the steep old highways to the ski areas in winter, bearing loads of angry, rude New Yorkers. I'd s...

Well, not that bad, considering that Vermont is a very insular car market with very specific needs (deep winter snow and lots of families), so Tercs and the like (the Subaru Outback Wagon has since taken over as the car of choice there) tend to be in nearly every driveway. My main surprise was that ...

Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha, what a coincidence!

That was my stepmother's car about twelve years ago! The first Terc I ever rode in.
