'84 (DLX?) Cali Car with issues for $500

on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/174197583297 Some strange stuff but lots of good parts in the very least. Even some tan plaid sr5 seats up front, which look very out of place! Looks like a dead cylinder, trans issues, 4wd issues, and a front end that looks like it was banged back together after a ...

2 sprinter carib 4wd wagon at duncan imports

More modern and "advanced" than the cars we love, but all the same. Neat cars, low miles, Jdm import through a reputable importer. All for pretty significant dollars. Anyone know any mail delivery people in snowy areas? Might be just the thing they need! 1991 4wd Automatic, 79k miles-$8,999 https://...

Re: Car part out

I'm looking for an original AM/FM radio. Any chance you have one still? Would ship to 05482.

'85 SR5 in Burlington, VT $2500

Decent shape-ish. I see some rust poking out. No interior photos. As a fellow Vermonter, I hope it has been thoroughly fluid filmed. Miles, IMO, are too high for that price and condition.

door molding reinstallation help (molding tape?)

I have a few plastic trim pieces nearly falling off or loose. Will molding tape work to put these back on. I ask because I have never seen molding with the foamy padding (sound dampening?) stuff integrated into the plastic, and it doesnt seem to take to molding tape very well. Do you just run tape d...

Re: T4wd Euro Allrad Snow (In Ukraine *sigh*)

I think the owner also has no idea he has a factory mounted winch integrated into his bumper. At least if it were me, that would for sure be a highlight if I were selling it. License plate flips up!

Re: tt4wd runs to cool

I am finding on rockauto and elsewhere, that *most* of the T-stats with good springs share the part# that my yota dealership gave me- 9091603046. I havent seen any bad units with this number.

Re: Catalytic converter

Bringing this back to life...

Anyone have luck with Walker cats or others on rock auto? We are looking at *potentially* a full exhaust rebuild. Chance the cat is good. Its coming out anyways, so it can be tested, but as a contingency just wondering what others have done.

Cheers and thanks,

Re: '84 WAGON REBUILD

I appologize for stating the obvious, but you can do some fairly silly things with just a simple tire upgrade on these cars. You wont be crawling by any means, but they do get you into and out of some highly entertaining situations. But it sounds like you're going for more. To achieve a similar angl...

Petros, I agree, I should give more credit to the way our cars were built, but I cant totally agree that more airbags=less metal. To the best of my knowledge, airbags were added to reduce injury in crashes b...

Re: Safety Concern

It could be easy-ish to find a good mounting point for shoulder belts for the outer seats in back on the frame of the vehicle in a solid, suitable position. the middle seat is a lot tougher, since you are either mounting to the ceiling, or to the seat itself. Once you fasten the upper shoulder belt ...
