Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD SR5 : Life in Pictures / Lost & Found: RESTORATION DOCUMENTED!

When will we be able to put it in the Another movie sighting line just above?? That would be too sweet. I think I only remember one person on this site to own a car with screen time. Maybe, just maybe, that new plate will prevent subie confusion! Not surprised it wasn't already taken.. It turns out...

Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD SR5 : Life in Pictures / Lost & Found: RESTORATION DOCUMENTED!

Thank you guys!! It’s so neat to see it compete. It just sits there so proud now. I think about how it must’ve felt for those three years it was lost in the ravine in the Idaho woods: Quiet and still, full of memories and mice, while pine needles and snow accumulated and then dissipated over the sea...

Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD SR5 : Life in Pictures / Lost & Found: RESTORATION DOCUMENTED!

Well, folks, the Tercel restoration is complete. After ten years of updating this thread, twenty four years since locating the car in Idaho, a decade of storage and parts collecting, countless hours, dollars, memories, and learning, the car will debut at the Japanese Classic Car Show this Saturday, ...

Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD SR5 : Life in Pictures / Lost & Found: RESTORATION DOCUMENTED!

Hi Bryan-- I'm highly impressed with what you're doing here! I'm in the process of cleaning up (on a much smaller, less thorough scale) my own '86 SR5. It's got a brown interior, and while I've been thinking about having the whole thing reupholstered in a custom sort of plaid, I'm also thinking abo...

You don't happen to have a clinometer from that car, do you?
It did not have one, being a base model.

1983-85 rear mud flaps needed.

Hey folks! Would anyone happen to have a nice set of rear mud flaps, with the first generation 4WD logo? These are unfortunately unsalvageable on my restoration vehicle.

looks like you can put some lights on it and drive it home.
It does. But it’s had some structural cross members removed from the engine bay. Definitely now a partner car...with lovely parts.

Japanese Market Clinometer UPSIDE DOWN

Question for Clinometer experts: My beautiful JDM Clinometer arrived today with the side view oriented upside down. Kind of humorous. Is the mechanism trying to orient itself to the other side of the planet? Or did it some how jump the stop that keeps it from flipping. Most importantly, how do I get...
