Has nothing to do with your computer and everything to do with the fact that the the newest link is over a decade old. The internet is not kind with keeping thing for a long time, let alone forever. One of the many reasons it won't replace libraries and books. A heavily used site goes away and with it much knowledge.

I agree. I have never seen them and would be very interested in seeing these.

Hey all,

Here is a fun video of some Tercel testing. I will do what I can to locate these articles and host them here so they don't get lost again, if anybody wants to direct me to library links, etc. it would be much appreciated.

Hey all,

Here is a great Flickr share of an article from 1985. If I printed this, I could scan to PDF and upload here like the attached PDF (requires Adobe download, but pretty common). Not the cleanest, but would save the information. What is a better way to save this info on the site? I'm not much on the tech side, maybe irowiki will see this and chime in.

I extracted all the photos in JPEG form and posted here. I also created a PDF of all the phones combined and posted above. If someone has a link to the Road & Track and Car and Driver article, I can likely upload it here as well.

Thanks Diarmait,

As I search here and there, I found Mattel had linked this article over 10 years ago. Here is a fun vintage ad for the Christmas season.

Here is a screen shot of the cover from 4/83’ listing the Tercel wagon in the test group. Might be a good Christmas gift, reasonable price at backissues.com.

It doesn’t say anything about a Tercel test/story, but based on the BAJA story/pic, I’m betting it’s in that group.
