2 x Toyota Tercel 4x4 SR-5 Wagons:
I'll keep this short and simple. We have 2 wagons for sale with one title for the undamaged bronze wagon. Both cars are complete and have not ran in years.
Silver and Blue car:
-This car was wrecked head on (by me) and a little rusty but complete with a good driveline with 183k miles and a newer head and carb. This car drove away from the wreck and onto the trailer to get it home.
-Full of great spares for the other car
-Full SR-5 interior with inclinometer on dash and plaid seats that could probably be rehabbed with a good scrubbing
-6 speed extra low 1st gear transmission
-this car immediately fires when turned over and shot with starter fluid
-Excellent rust-free body
-broken back glass
-complete SR-5 interior just like other car
-6 speed trans
-engine spins freely
So here's the deal, both cars ran in the last 5+ years and were our personal vehicles. The bronze car is missing 2nd gear and the the wrecked car has a good complete driveline. The plan was to swap in the engine and trans from wrecked car and have a nice rust free driver with a complete parts car with another good engine. Both cars have some mildew inside and need a good cleaning. The silver car probably has the better interior so I would swap that in too. These cars are getting extremely hard to find and are the only 4x4's I know of that get an honest 35 MPG on the highway. I have tried to be accurate and honest in the description of these cars but I encourage you to look at the cars before you bid so there are no questions as of their condition. I am selling these cars for my father and we have nothing to hide.

Ah, aluminum. The lightweight, strong material has long held a following within the premium ranks, but as Ford prepares to launch an aluminum F-150, the material is gaining acceptance among more mainstream automakers. Toyota is one such brand, with a new report indicating that the Japanese giant will add aluminum bits and bobs to some of its upcoming vehicles.
These won't be full, aluminum-intensive treatments like the F-150, however. Automotive News reports that an aluminum hood and liftgate will be coming to the 2016 Lexus RX, and following that, the Camry will get a bonnet built from Element 13 for model year 2018.
As AN points out, Toyota is no stranger to aluminum, using it in Japanese-built models like the Prius and Scion FR-S. The RX and Camry, though, will mark the first time the company's North American factories will use the material, and they'll do so on a significantly larger scale, owing to the higher volumes that the Camry and RX represent.
With the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon set to arrive in dealers in the near future, it's high time Toyota got to work on a replacement for the Tacoma, a vehicle whose present generation debuted in the middle of the Bush Administration. Now, we have images of that new pickup undergoing testing.
Our spy photographers picked up this heavily modified mule undergoing tow tests in the desert. It rides on a modified version of the current Taco's frame, as evidenced by shots of its undercarriage, although our spies cite the lack of riveted sections as indications that the current truck's footprint should remain unchanged.
Aside from underbody changes, this particular Tacoma featured a six-speed manual transmission, which we're expecting to be joined by a six-speed automatic. The current four- and five-speed autos found on the current truck will almost certainly be killed off. Marching to the grave with those slushboxes will be the two-door Regular Cab body style. Our spies are expecting Toyota to focus its efforts on the larger, more accessible Double Cab.
Among automakers with a big US presence, General Motors is the worst to work for, according to a new survey from Tier 1 automotive suppliers, conducted by Planning Perspectives, Inc.
The Detroit-based manufacturer, which has been under fire following the ignition switch recall and its accompanying scandal, finished behind six other automakers with big US manufacturing operations. Suppliers had issues with trust and communications, as well as intellectual property protection. GM was also the least likely to allow suppliers to raise their prices in the face of unexpected increases in material cost, all of which contributed to 55 percent of suppliers saying their relationship with GM was "poor to very poor."
GM's cross-town competitors didn't fare much better. Chrysler finished in fifth place, ahead of GM and behind Dearborn-based Ford, which was passed for third place this year by Nissan. Toyota took the top marks, while Honda captured second place.
