This forum is for cars that run, or at least are close to running. This isn't for parting out complete cars.

Minor rust but good shape. Good one to keep track of for final sale value. Comes with a recently ported 4A with lightened flywheel and other various parts. In Citrus Heights, CA.

Yeah, it went for a pretty penny but was one of the better examples I've seen lately.

I believe that "Yikes" Mr. garyfish is because the car was a DEAL OF THE CENTURY! LOL

I good sir's am the one who bought these two Tercels (and proud to bring them back to their original purchased town of San Jose, CA). I couldn't say no to the price given it was essentially for 2 cars, a running and a parts car, an additional 1.6L rebuilt motor, 4 extra snow tires and more extra parts than my "distain for typing" self would care to list in this thread.

Additionally my justification is sound as this is the exact model (with the exception of the interior being different) that I had purchased when I turned 16 back in 94' for $800. Unfortunately as many of us learn the hard way, I did not fully "love" the vehicle as it truly should have deserved and I drove it until the engine block cracked on me in 2002. Regrettably I scrapped it, again I didn't know any better at the time.

Well I AM BACK BABY. I look foreword to untold memories in this dope vessel. Going to the Capitol Drive in theater with my beanbag in the back, the weekend trips to Santa Cruz, bon fires on the beach, ALL OF IT! This ol' man (my girlfriend named him Herbert) and I are going to once again tear it up in the Bay Area...………… well, once I get it to pass Smog. LOL

This seems like an Awesome community and I am excited to now be a part of it. Thanks for having me. -Kirk
