Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Imported from Arizona in the late 1990s and had been serviced at Kingsway Lexus Toyota by the previous owner. Never been raced and always owned by mature owners to my knowledge. No knowledge of work on engine and transmission other than routine service work. Timing belt done about 30,000-40,000 miles ago, and struts on all four corners replaced just before sale to me in September last year, although my mechanic told me that the rear passenger side shock might be leaking a bit. Installed a brand new power steering rack, driver side seatbelt and high amp battery in April 2014.

I have driven it maybe 1,000 kilometers since I had it. The car has zero drivability issues to my knowledge. It also has remote start but doesnít work although the key-less entry works fine. In tracing the inoperative driver side door courtesy light we found that it has no ground, and that may also explain why the power mirrors donít work. Has some white rust stabilizer applied to a small patch of surface rust on the lower corner of the driver's door and a year later it looks like the rust has been stabilized. A couple of small dings on roof. A leather patch on the driver's seat bottom and split in the passenger side seat bottom. A/C needs recharge. The driver side fog light has a crack in the lens, and needs a reverse light switch. Tires are 195/55 R15 all seasons with 50% left on the fronts and 75% on the rears for a rough estimate.

I have owned several classics and even though I wouldnít claim it to be mint I donít have any hesitation in saying that this is by far one of the best well looked after cars particularly at this mileage. I have described the condition of the vehicle to the best of my ability, but please use it as a guide and arrange to have it inspected or ask questions if you need any clarification.

Price is in US Dollars.

eBay Find of the Day: Harley-Davidson powered Toyota Prius [w/video]

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 08:40:00 EST

Sometimes we pluck cars from the listings of eBay Motors because they're old and interesting, some for being simply lovely, some for rarity and some for pure fun. And sometimes we pick eBay Finds of the Day, because they're hacked apart Toyota Prius' with Harley Davidson V-twin-power; concocted by the same mind that brought you innumerable Jalopnik articles and is partially responsible for the joy that is the 24 Hours of LeMons. This time it's that last one.
A fairly subtle tweet from long-time Jalop contributor and well-regarded grease monkey, Murilee Martin, hipped us to this crazy Frankenstein Prius. Built from the bones of a 2008 Toyota and the heart of a 1986 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883, the motive portmanteau is, well... it's a thing.
Toyota's advanced Hybrid Synergy Drive has been unceremoniously wrenched and snipped out of the engine bay, making room (via an artful hole in the hood) for the towering, bored out V-twin. Or, as the maestro himself puts it:

2015 Toyota Yaris

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 11:57:00 EST

Advertising firms have done an admirable job convincing consumers that the easiest way to find a best-in-segment car or truck is by looking at a few key metrics. In the most elementary terms, the vehicle with the highest horsepower, most gears in its transmission housing, lowest acceleration times and best fuel economy most certainly must be the class benchmark.
Yet as the commercials and billboards continue to drive that deceitful message, Toyota is betting shoppers in the subcompact segment are a bit more discerning. The Japanese automaker has just launched its updated 2015 Yaris, a three- and five-door offering that bucks the innovation and performance trends by offering what Toyota feels that entry-level buyers actually desire - reliability, practicality and a low sticker price.
It's sweltering in the tropical Hawaiian sun as I check out the deeply refreshed 2015 Yaris SE. This five-door hatchback, a range-topping version of the company's subcompact "sporty hatch" (Toyota's words, not mine), builds on the new-in-2012 generation by wearing new front and rear fascias, redesigned headlights and some attractive new wheels for the upcoming model year.

Cosworth announces Power Packages for Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S with up to 380 hp [w/video]

Sat, 31 May 2014 12:59:00 EST

Cosworth stands on the list of the most famous engine tuners in the world with its DFV engine engine dominating Formula One for a time in the '70s. So when it teases plans to take on the FA20 engine from Subaru and Toyota found in the BRZ, Scion FR-S and Toyota GT86 abroad, our interest is indeed piqued. Cosworth is promising to take the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder boxer engine from its current 200 horsepower all the way to 325 hp and even 380 hp in a future track version through a series of staged Power Packages. At the moment, only the first stage is available that takes the mill to a potent 230 hp.
Cosworth says that its new strategy is to offer its upgrades in kits rather than individually so that it can be sure that everything works and fits when owners receive it. The Stage 1 Power Package emphasizes helping the FA20 breathe better and includes a nearly complete replacement for the stock exhaust system. There is a sports exhaust with four-inch, diagonally cut, polished tips and Y-shaped muffler, an overpipe front pipe with a spherical resonator and a new manifold header that is 22 percent lighter the standard unit. In addition to that, the kit comes with a software reflash, low temperature thermostat, Cosworth badge and plaque.
The stage one kit is available now, and stages two and three go on sale later this summer, according to its website. Autoblog contacted Cosworth for pricing information for the kits. We will update this story, if we hear back. The company also released a video showing off the exhaust upgrades. Scroll down to watch it and read the full release, below.
