    Doubt anyone is going to find one nicer than this. My question is, of all the cars to garage, rarely drive, keep all original, etc…. why this car? 😀

    Wouldn't mind having that to keep down the miles on my truck, but I'd work it like a rented mule.

    I'm a little baffled as to why someone would bother to keep an entry-level Toyota pristine as well. It's like buying a Yaris new, and sticking it in the garage, only pulling it out for a wash, and coffee run once a week for the next forty years. Weird.
    At least, with this creampuff, you'll probably draw the biggest crowd at the next cars and coffee: "Corvette, Porsche, Porsche, GTR,*yawn* Gen IV Supra….hey! Look! An 80's Tercel! Haven't seen one of those in twenty years!

    My friend had one in college. Fun to drive, manual everything, very light. Snap oversteer when you pushed it too!!

      The earlier 1982–1986 version would be fun with rear wheel drive and the vast assortment of Toyota engines that would fit, but this is FWD and is pretty to look at if you like looking at things like this.

      Someone should hook up the seller with one of the movie car companies. Ever wonder why all the cars in the background of movies are fairly high spec cool cars? It's because the uncool cars have all been used up and junked.

      Actually, the first gen (L-10, 1978-1981) and second gen (L-20, 1982-1986) Tercels were all front front-wheel drive, aside from a handful of AWD models produced for the JDM.

      You might be thinking of the P-60 Starlet from 1978 to 1984. Those were rear-drive and a lot of fun to flog.

    just thinking? most car guys would not buy one in 1989, so why would you buy it now?
