Only MKIII and MKIV Supra parts right now, but I think we can all sit here and hope for newly manufactured transmissions at the very least.

This. Is. Huge...

We need to put together a list to submit to Toyota to urge them to support us. The AL25 may not be a flagship, but with today's popularity of quirky 80's culture, the Tercel should be up near the top of the list (after Supras, Celicas, Corollas, MR2s and the rest of the "fun" cars).

There is a link on the website for "Reproduction Requests," so lets flood them with AL25 requests! Include part numbers if possible to make their job simple and obvious.

I just checked out the request form...there's only a70 and a80 and you have to select one and put in a vin to continue. Perhaps we email them instead?

So lets find a single Supra VIN that we all use, so that they can link all the AL25 requests to that VIN and see that there is other demand. Just make sure in the description that you're clear that the parts you're requesting are NOT for an A80 Supra, but for an AL25 Tercel.

Found a VIN on eBay: JT2DE82A3V1000799 its an A80 (Mk 4) Supra.

Read the whole thread, we're attempting to stuff the ballot box for the AL25 Tercel.

The site is what I was referring to. They are specific to Supra's and some A70s I thought it said. I saw nothing there in reference to Toyota Caribs, Corsas, Corolla IIs or Tercels.
