These cars were so great. And you can't find upholstery like that anymore either.

eeew. try taking your teenagers to school in that.

Make this your teenager's first car. They'll have a rare perspective on what a cheap and reliable car really is.

I doubt anything will match my experience of 80s cars on those 2 points.

I'm 15, and i'd GLADLY take this as my first car. Either that, or a Malaise-era luxobarge.

These things are great. There was a low miler on BAT last week that was as good as new. Here are my latest street finds from Olympia WA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMcgxNgeQhY&feature=channel_video_title

rad. these unkillable things are absolutely everywhere, and absolutely every single one is just a shriveled-up raisin of a beater. i've had my eyes peeled for a well preserved example for as long as we've been blogging. just spotting one with all trim pieces intact is a rarity, much less one with zero dents and oxidized paint.

no comment on the interior, but thanks for documenting.

bring back that link to the tercel rally forum. that was awesome.

A much needed Tercel tribute.
