Re: eBay -- immaculate 4WD DLX wagon, AT, 55K -- Ohio

Guess he was pestered enough to at least attempt to get the year right: On May-05-14 at 09:46:35 PDT, seller added the following information: It was discovered that it is a an '85. It was mistakenly listed as '80. If you would like to cancel your bids,you can. If you want to keep them for this good ...

Re: eBay -- immaculate 4WD DLX wagon, AT, 55K -- Ohio

What I was seeing is on the LF windshield pillar, theres something growing from beside the trim, first one about 4inches above the bottom corner, couple more up near the top and one more a few inches in across the top. Could just as well be dirt or even the poor pic. These spots? I saw that as well...

Re: eBay -- immaculate 4WD DLX wagon, AT, 55K -- Ohio

He still hasn't added the proper vin or pics despite telling me he was going to do it. He also evaded the questioning the cluster being from an SR5. He could have said "it was done before I got it", if it was honestly nothing of his doing, but he just outright evaded.

Re: eBay -- immaculate 4WD DLX wagon, AT, 55K -- Ohio

I bugged him about the year and vin number as well as the lack of engine bay pics. He replied saying he'll look into it it, and see about adding the pic.

Re: eBay -- immaculate 4WD DLX wagon, AT, 55K -- Ohio

I admit, our low miles 2wd we've been working on had work listed as done to her, we found things from receipts and official toyota stickers on things like the timing belt giving us clues to work she had done, but nothing as serious as a "head gasket rebuild" (I don't know if he means REPLACED gasket...

Re: '84 T4WD DLX just added to Pick-n-Pull, Salt Lake City,

"Happy birthday to our toddler, he gets dumped in a hotel with mom while dad goes pick and pulling for his birthday which is only 3 days later!" is what it would look like =p

Re: 86 toyota tercel sr5 - $3500 (los angeles)

Oh dear god, they added even more photos since I first found it. Originally there were only 3, 2 exterior and the cluster/steering wheel. I think "Midlife crisis" is a fitting name for that wagon.

Re: Street View Terc!

It's so weird to know there're a few tercels back in nova scotia but I've never seen one before! I grew up in the south shore then moved to halifax in 2006-ish. The only old tercels I ever saw were the 90s sedans. This made me think I could probably find our blow tranny tercel we bought locally as i...

Re: No crank

I didn't mean it as "Petros intentionally sold us a dud". it's a pain in the butt to type a long message on my tablet so I shortened it, so I apologize if it sounded like I was accusing you of being malicious. We had her out for a drive just now and she seemed to be doing fine. Unfortunately she's i...

Re: No crank

Turns out the spare starter we'd gotten from petros was actually a dud too, so all this time we were carrying a dead backup with us. We pulled the one from our 87 FWD since we have a while to go to get her back up and running and buck fired back up, no sign of fuel issues yet like we expected to hav...

Re: The Party Wagon engine swap thread

The engine is completely seized. How do you turn it to get the torque converter off, any ideas?

Re: 85 SR5 Denver,Colorado $1650

I could see it as being seafoamy, at first look it looked very "grungy" silver, kinda greened but I've never seen anything even close to that colour on a tercel so I was quite boggled!

Re: First $500 gets good running 83 tercel SR5

The cop mentioned being able to teleconference if unable to be there in person, but I'm unfamiliar with this so I'm not sure how effective it is. He also mentioned contacting the 'staff' via email and working something out and being likely to at least half the fine if it was registered quickly when ...

Re: First $500 gets good running 83 tercel SR5

It's good we had proof of insurance or that's a 1000$ fine in AZ apparently.
