Not mine, but thought the SR5 on this bad boy was interesting enough to post....can't have been many of these sold. A fair amount of 2nd-gen Tercel automatics still seem to pop for sale around this part of the country, but the 5-speeds still on the road are much rarer, let alone SR5 trim.

they are very rare indeed. one turned up at the local pick-n-pull a few years ago. also, the manager at the local AutoZone has a gray one.

One of these with a suped-up corolla gts drivetrain would be hilarious.

Oh man I saw this on craigslist too. I definitely thought about getting it for it's 5 speed transmission. I have a 4 speed in mine.
