Re: 85, 100k abandoned in emigrant montana.

Call your local police department. Explain how you found the car sitting at X location and see what they say. If they're aware the township is said to dispose of it, they'll probably just let you take it since it'll save them the tow truck payment. You'll likely never be able to get a title and it m...

Re: Free hatch.

Still available, I can bring it to the meet and greet in a few weeks.

I'd hate to scrap it. :(

Re: Engine modification

If it were me, I would have a .020 overbore done and have the head machined down .010. A Weber carb is a nice upgrade due to the simplicity. Make sure your cat converter is not clogged. Change the transmission fluid, refresh the cooling and fuel system (the parts are cheap on rockauto) set timing to...

Re: Tercel Midwest Meet & Greet

Looking forward to the trip and weekend! I should really replace my suspension bushings before road tripping spud that far and wheeling. But it'll be a good winter project so you guys will have to deal with my clunking front end.

Free hatch.

Hey guys, got a free hatch for... Well, free. She's a bit crusty, but could be repaired. The lock, license plate frame and everything else internally will likely be pulled. It is located in southern Grand Rapids, Michigan. IMG_20200726_093620.jpg IMG_20200726_093629.jpg IMG_20200726_093627.jpg The c...

Re: '84 Tercel SR5 4WD 6 speed for sale

I wish I could fly back out there and purchase this one too! I love the two tone. It's definitely my favorite color combo.
Spud has done nearly 20,000 miles since last February when I picked it up!

Re: Autoblog.com Super Rusty T4wd find

I happened to meet Murilee on a Lemons Rally a few weeks back. He was a very nice guy and told me his love for these old cars. He sent me the Clinometer he wrote about in the article listed below. https://www.autoweek.com/car-life/diy/a30696520/when-the-cheapo-tercel-got-the-land-cruisers-dash-incli...

Always happy to keep the Tercels on the road!
I have his old seats so we're trading parts back and forth. Haha.

That's my hopes. I gave the lady more than I had wanted for the car. But the price was still good enough to justify the transmission, axle, wheels, some interior pieces, lenses, fenders, grill, spindles ECT.

Re: Purchased the saddest Tercel4wd I've ever found.

I'm not sure what they are made out of but the tailights on Tercel 4wd never fade. Even the license plate frame isn't faded on this car! It's kind of baffling. The HVAC vents are nice looking, the center console and boots aren't bad, the corner lenses are magically intact and many other good parts ...

Re: 1985 Tercel 4wd Restoration

I have a dome light lens, I am planning on making a run to that junkyard I mentioned to you a few weeks back to get some parts. I'll grab the seat carpet holders and black speaker shelves for ya too!

May also have a black clinometer cover to trade?

Purchased the saddest Tercel4wd I've ever found.

Hey everyone, recently got a lead on a Tercel that had been sitting for many years. The owners said the car wasn't running properly and sounded like it was firing on 3 cylinders, so they parked it back in the woods with plans of fixing it in the springtime. But come spring time, addicts had taken a ...
