1982 Toyota Tercel Std 2 door coupe with 5 speed manual. My wife has grown increasingly jealous of the gaggle of female admirers that I regularly attract with this, the very apex of early 1980's Japanese econobox engineering, thus I am forced to part with my dream car. All original, comes with factory A/C and factory optional tape cassette player. For a 31 year-old Tercel with high miles, it is in excellent condition. Dash has the cracks one would expect of a car this age, but they are all hairline cracks. Front seats have seat covers but are pretty torn up. Back seat and carpet are in good condition. Anyone familiar with these 1st generation Tercels knows that they are a lot of fun and are extremely reliable.


The Good:
  • All original--factory A/C, factory radio and optional tape cassette player
  • Good compression, runs well
  • Spent the first 28 years of its life in California, so no rust--body is solid
  • 5 speed manual
The Bad:
  • Paint chips and dings inherent in a 31 year daily driver
  • Heater never gets above lukewarm. I've replaced the thermostat, but that doesn't seem to fix the issue (heater core perhaps?)
  • Difficult to engage 1st gear unless completely stopped and engine down to idle speed
  • One of the springs on the trunk lid is broken, which means that when you open the trunk, it will not stay open on its own
  • The driver side mirror (the only one it came with from the factory) is not stock and is more cosmetic than functional--I just haven't gotten around to replacing it with a good one

2014 Toyota Tundra to debut at Chicago Auto Show

Thu, 24 Jan 2013 14:58:00 EST

The fullsize pickup market is dominated by trucks from Ford, General Motors and Ram, but this segment could get some hefty competition in coming years. We've already reported that Nissan is planning a redesign of its Titan truck for 2015, and now Toyota has announced that it will be revealing the 2014 Tundra next month at the Chicago Auto Show.
In the brief press release posted below, Toyota says that the 2014 Tundra will be "redesigned," but it's unclear as to whether this means we'll be seeing an all-new truck or just an extensive refresh. The current Tundra design has been around since 2007 and sales are hardly worrisome to the Big Three, so a new design would be a logical guess.
In any case, we only have to wait a couple more weeks for the new Tundra to debut on February 7, and we'll be on hand to bring you plenty of live coverage from the show.

Toyota reveals new versions of FT-1 concept at Pebble Beach [w/video]

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 02:10:00 EST

Toyota certainly caught our attention when it unveiled the FT-1 concept at the Detroit Auto Show last January. Coming from the same people who gave us the Lexus LFA, Scion FR-S and Toyota Supra, the FT-1 concept looked striking in its bright red livery. But the Japanese automaker isn't quite done with it yet.
No, we're afraid we don't have a production announcement to share at the moment, but Toyota has revealed two new versions of the FT-1 concept that cast it in different light. Most notable is the graphite version pictured above. Replacing the bright red paintjob and two-tone red and black interior of the original concept, this second iteration - presented in the metal at McCall's Motorworks Revival in Monterey, California - goes for a more upscale and refined graphite exterior and a tan leather interior with exposed metal elements.
Both versions of the virtually road-going FT-1 concept will be playable in GT6, but at the same time Toyota also revealed (in digital form, at least) a virtual racing version of the concept called the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo. Looking like the original concept was prepared for Japan's Super GT series, the FT-1 Vision GT is retuned for racing, with wider fenders, more extreme aero, competition-spec alloys on slicks and the like.

Ford only automaker to make 2012 Buzz Rankings, Toyota most improved

Wed, 30 Jan 2013 10:00:00 EST

Ford landed itself a spot among the top 10 brands in the 2012 Buzz Rankings. The annual index scores 1,100 brands in 41 categories to determine which nameplates had the most positive buzz throughout the year.
For the third year in a row, Subway took the top honors overall with a score of 40.3, and Ford was the only automaker to break into the top 25 by earning a sixth-place finish overall. The manufacturer earned a score of 32.1 points, which was enough to push it up one spot from the 2011 Buzz Rankings. Honda managed 21.2 points overall, which is still well behind 25th-place Kohl's at 26.5 points. Toyota, Volkswagen and BMW all round out the top five automakers.
The 2012 Buzz Rankings also keep track of which brands improved the most over the past year, and this year, Toyota was the manufacturer with the largest leap forward. The Japanese automaker jumped from just 14 points in 2011 to 20.5 in 2012. Chrysler, Kia, Dodge and Volkswagen all saw sizable steps forward as well. Be sure to head over to the Brand Index site for more information.
