funny video w/ 84' Tercel

Post by NWMO » Wed Dec 11, 2019 11:39 am

Pretty funny video, I'm sure it's been shared before. You can thank cars-guy for the wasted time, I found this when looking at old videos hoping to answer his post.
Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart"

In remembrance of my friend ARCHINSTL:

T4WD augury?
"Oh, do not ask, 'What is it?' Let us go and make our visit."
T.S. Eliot - "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock"

"Now and then we had a hope that, if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates."
Mark Twain

I found this guy on FB with a page called "Tercel Talk" as well I think. I followed the page without reading the description and when I was browsing I saw absolutely nothing about T4s. So I commented on the page something like, "Does anyone actually talk about Tercel's on here?" Then he explained to me that it's just his comedy page. Whoops.

That vid is pretty good though...I've definitely noticed the panhandlers look the other way. I've also noticed the cops do too! I've been at least 12-15 mph over the limit several times and blew right past a speed trap and nothing.

I do not find it him funny, but rather ignorant about the Tercel. There are lots of things he could have made fun of on these cars if he knew more about them.

his looks like a DLX, can not tell if it is auto or manual trans.

Sadly the first thing that came to mind is how I've never seen a glovebox latch that's actually straight. Did they all come from the factory bent?
