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.

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.
Cressida was a common character in Renaissance era stories about the Trojan war — specifically she was the daughter of a Greek seer who falls in love with Trollius (a Trojan prince) and is later in love with the Greek soldier Diomedes…but the various stories have one common theme — that Cressida is the paradigm […]

The recipe for a the ultimate good times with a craigslist advertisement goes a little something like this: First, find a inexpensive car in extraordinary condition. Then, make unsubstantiated (and unverifiable) claims like owned by a former duke of Albania or used in the independent film ” Marco Polo’s day off”. Finally, write your test […]

The Toyota Aurion was based on the Camry – all it had was a redone interior and new front and rear fascias – and replaced the Avalon in Australia. The TRD version added a supercharger to the already […]

You might wonder why Toyota would sell two cars with such […]
