Re: We have lost one of our own.

Hi Matt, it's nice to see Tom's family on the forum even though he's not anymore. First of all, I'm sorry to hear the news. I can't claim any connection to Tom, but he contributed hugely to this forum in a truly wonderful, erudite, and warm manner, and I learned a lot from his posts and admired the ...

Re: Parting out 1985 SR5 dark blue, San Diego

A good condition intermediate exhaust pipe, and a front seat bottom (brown and stripey, no plaid)?

Re: 1985 SR5 project. Left front fender and hatch needed.

I'm more curious about that brown car in front with four circular rear lights...looks Italian, from the 1970/80s. Similar to the rear end of a Ferrari 400/412, but definitely not that car. Maybe a Fiat? Anyone else got any guesses?

Re: Greetings from France

That's probably one of ten Tercels left in that shape--consider yourself lucky!

Rattling Sound Instrument Cluster

I've got this rattling sound that appears to be coming from the instrument cluster. It started recently, and makes a very regular sound that increases in frequency with speed. Sounds like rattly speedometer gears or something? Anyone with any experience fixing this/hearing this?

Re: '84 WAGON REBUILD

The most practical way to get a 2-4" lift to fit big tires and a high-geared, heavy duty axle, while still having enough power in reserve to drive it safely, would be to sell the Tercel and buy a Tacoma.

Cold Start / Fast Idle Problem

I'm wondering if anyone can help me diagnose a minor issue in my Tercel. Winter mornings here in Maine are typically frigid, so I typically perform the cold start procedure in my Tercel by pressing twice on the gas, for one-Mississippi per pump. The car will always immediately start, but if it hasn'...

Re: Interior Parts

It's a damn goldmine of Tercel parts in there. Could rebuild a transmission with what he's got listed. And so much more--a JDM grill or three, elusive trim parts, etc.

Re: Interior Parts

My a-pillar exists in its entirety, it just has a hairline crack in it that sets off my (admittedly sensitive) OCD, so I'd suggest keeping that one for yourself. Spent this snowy weekend refinishing my MR2 triangle wheels and redoing the black window/windshield trim. Going to try another attempt at ...

Re: Interior Parts

Thank you! Is the gear shifter knob a screw-on piece as well, or does it come off some other way? Trying hard not to break stuff here...
