Grandpa’s Car: 1988 Toyota Tercel Hatchback

“Cool” car guys aren’t supposed to admit that they like basic economy cars from yesteryear, but I’m not cool, so I guess I’ll just go out and admit that I do a double take when a clean Toyota Tercel rolls by and I’m a sucker for the hatchback version that hasn’t been hacked up by some Pimp My Ride wannabe.  Find this 1988 Toyota Tercel offered for $3300 in San Jose, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!
