Re: Did the blower motor fry?

When we noticed the heater seemed dead, I stuck my phone down to where the fan was. I didn't realize the fan was right there in the glove box area at first, but we could see when we turned the fan on it would only spin slowly on all speed settings.

Re: Another one bites the dust

I guess, being Canadian, we're the superior ones using metric AND the proper side of the road =p

Re: The collection begins?

It's not the value we're worried about the value much as we plan to use her. But like you say, the area dictates value and in nm the value for a clean, working, low miles car is pretty high. A crap junky car here 900-1200. A decent, somewhat banged up car is easily 1500-2000 and a good condition car...

Re: Sun visor easy upgrade.

We tried to MR2 ones and they were too long for the wagon, they hit the rear view mirror when trying to put them down to block the sun. They DID fit connection wise though, it was just the inability ro make them swing up and down reasonably that made us not use them. You could do it, but you'd be et...

Re: The "breaking bad" Tercel

I had to laugh at one of the comments to the article about "there's nothing like ice racing and watching one of those cars (tercel wagon) pass you going sideways"

Re: '84 Tercel4wd, automatic DLX for sale

It gets worse. I just found a local 81 sedan... automatic, for 500$. At first I laughed and said we could strip it to fix up our car since the insides on ours are shot and this one looked cleaner, then I saw the thing was an automatic in its interior pics and joked I could have one of my own. We ema...

Re: '84 Tercel4wd, automatic DLX for sale

My wife stole my Terc too. At first they say they don't want to drive it and that it is your car but in the end one taste of the Terc and she's snakin' it right out from under ya. You could remove the P.S. belt and tell here there is an issue that will cost you too much to fix right now and then dr...

How are the front turn signal lights on the fenders? We're looking around at junkers to see what we may need!

Re: '84 Tercel4wd, automatic DLX for sale

By crazy drivers he means going from Farmington NM to Green Bay WI and driving aprox 12~14 hours non stop or something crazy like that. It makes me facepalm that a 30 year old car is more loved and working better than our 10 year old buick. While I like the tercels, I'm just waiting to get "that loo...

Re: The "breaking bad" Tercel

I was reading about the original one being held by the production company for now, they haven't released if they plan to sell or not yet though. The one mentioned above is now on ebay it would seem. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyota-Tercel-Base-Jesse-Pinkmans-car-from-Breaking-Bad-/261263999944?...

Re: If you happen by a pick and pull (My list of parts I nee

The wagon went the way of the crusher it seems, sad day as there wasn't even a photo on the site so we'll never know the condition of it. The sedan has some things need so Paul is in the yard pulling parts now. Unfortunately since we have the toddler with us I can't personally go to check the invent...

Re: If you happen by a pick and pull (My list of parts I nee

New Mexico is way too dry for my liking. I've spent all my life living withing viewing distance of the ocean and having a high humidity, and now we're lucky if it passes 20% humidity and the precipitation for this year still read "zero inches". Admittedly though, my family back home are complaining ...

Re: If you happen by a pick and pull (My list of parts I nee

i just want to mention how cute it is to have a husband and wife pair on the forum, taking such cares for an old car. it's very cool. I was actually the one who told him to get it. I'm from Canada and just recently immigrated here to New Mexico and Paul began looking for a "crap car" for his commut...
