Re: 1985 4x4 Lifted Wagon

Howdy all, I was hoping to pass the car along to a enthusiast and side step all the crap that comes with CL. Alas, in this moment I suppose I'll try my luck on CL. It is actually a 1967 Mark II 340. A close guess everyone! I used to work for a private collector who is in love with the Mark II and th...

1985 4x4 Lifted Wagon

Reluctantly, I have to list my trusty Tercel. She's been a great companion for 4 years and has seen it all. I lifted her using brand new struts, coils and shocks following the "how to" guide. I've gone through and replaced all of the braking components front to rear. I've replaced pretty much every ...

1988 Tercel SR5 4wd....FREE

I acquired an 88 off of a buddy of mine with the intentions of putting it back on the road. However after getting it running again, the motor had a nice knock to it. Currently, there is no tranny, but there is a pulled apart tranny in the trunk that I know absolutely nothing about. Last titled in NV...

Re: T4wd kills it in the snow, the hype was real

I couldn't agree more! I hadn't driven mine in about 3-4 months and today there was finally a decent amount of snow dumped over Donner pass! I can't believe some of the places this thing will take me. Biggest plus was helping a WRX owner get un-stuck then easily pulling away. IMG_20180226_183212_453...

Re: Celica strut retrofitting

I left the rear sway bar off for more flexibility. It seems to handle just fine still. Having updated all the suspension components while doing the lift makes it hard to tell the true difference.

WTB Climate control cable

So in the early days of my tercel ownership I was fiddling away with the climate control and broke the metal arms on the back of temperature control slider. I have since replaced the unit, freed up the heater control valve and lubed everything, but I snapped the cable going to the "blend door". I'm ...

Sonora,CA $150 T4WD

It is definitely a parts car, but looks like the drive train is all there.

Re: My new Toy!

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.

I promptly drove straight into the local irrigation ditch thinking I could make it, turns out it was a bit deeper than anticipated. Even the tractor couldn't pull me out!
