This next car came in with so much potential. It comes with a description of being an all-wheel-drive Toyota All-Trac Camry and then you stumbled upon a photo shows an LS1 engine mounted longitudinally in a similarly hearing aid beige car. Unfortunately, that photo is from another listing, and this Camry has some kind of […]
What does it mean to be a “collector”? If you have a bunch of hair on your head, are you a collector of hair? I’ve counted mine and I have 101,452 strands of hair on my head, but I don’t feel like I’m a hair collector. What about cars? Certainly you’d be a collector if […]
If someone asks you to name an all-wheel-drive Japanese modern classic with a manual gearbox, most people start listings things from the Subaru, Mitsubishi, or Nissan…but the truth is that Toyota probably built more all-wheel-drive cars than any of those specialty makers, mainly because they built a bazillian cars over the years. Today’s example is […]
This next car comes as a tip from Johnny Bouncewell who writes; Cheap manual Lexus? Those words just dont get put together very often. I mean, its just a tarted up Camry, but thats hella cheap for a First Generation Lexus. The original first gen ES was indeed just a Camry but it showed the […]
This next car comes a tip from Safety Fast who writes; Oh what a feeling… blue… on blue. I don’t know why I’m sending this in to DT instead of just going out right now to buy it. I’ll be surprised if it lasts through the weekend. When I first saw this car I had competing feelings of respect and disgust. Respect because this blue-beige machine is so clean and I have to give props to the owners who kept it from the sun, shopping carts, kids, and the crusher — disgust because out of all the cars to save from 1991, why would someone choose something from the underwhelming buffet of beige like a Camry to save from the elements and shopping carts. I guess it doesn’t matter, because if you want to drive something from 1991 that makes it feel like 1992…this is it. Oh…what a feeling.

Yawn…I almost fell asleep looking at this next car…what is it? Accord…no…wait it is a Toyota Camry, a car that can be best described as a reliable and cheap 2000s version of a 1990s Buick. But today we’ve found one that is equipped with a huge 6-speed manual shifter mounted between the seats. Find this 2010 Toyota Camry offered for $3900 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist.
When this next car came into DT’s mailbox, I recognized something…and it wasn’t the car. It was the location. I’d seen this rooftop parking structure with another well preserved Japanese wagon…ahh, here it is; the ’89 Corolla All-Trac Wagon from a few months back. It seems we have a connoisseur on our hands. The seller is either an enthusiast who is thinning his collection, or a flipper who buys these things from grandma and then wheeler dealers them on craigslist for a tidy profit.

Another day, another basic and reliable 90s Toyota featured on the front page of Daily Turismo. Yup. Dependability, practicality, and slushbox autotragic transmissions is what we’ve spend years searching for…wait…FULL STOP. Something is wrong with this Camry. Somebody stole the rear doors…or it is a rare hardtop Solara…no. This is a rare XV10 3rd generation Toyota Camry 2-door coupe, which was the only generation of Toyota’s super-selling sedan to offer a coupe version that wasn’t called a Solara and I don’t think I’ve seen one before. Find this 1995 Toyota Camry Coupe offered for $2,899 in Renton, WA via craigslist. Tip from JB1025.
It is difficult to remember that there was a time when Toyota made good looking cars for the average consumer, but here it is in the flesh. Feast your eyes on the two-tone brown-gold beauty with sharp lines and a hood with a subtle bulge — that is subdued style. And, I haven’t even mentioned the sweet liftback shape – yowza! This is the same company (Toyota!) that today makes all manner of bulbous monstrosities decked out with fake wings/scoops/lights, what happened? Find this 1986 Toyota Camry Liftback offered for $6,900 buy-it-now located in Irvine, CA via eBay.
There is a lot to love in a 1990s Toyota wagon. It has plenty of space for your fishing rod, kids, etc…and will probably last a million miles if you keep changing the oil and doing basic maintenance. Not sure how the paint looks so go — but this car might come before the era of low quality clearcoat or it has been garaged and waxed for its entire life. The only two things wrong with this car is a penalty box auto and neck chopper seat belt action. Find this 1991 Toyota Camry Wagon offered for $3,000 in Canaan, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
